Poncho Baby Nursing Cover Review
When I was pregnant with Nova, I knew that I wanted to nurse her. I had not such a great nursing experience with my first and stopped at 5 months, and then nursed my second baby for 13 months. My sweet girl is now almost 6 months old and our nursing relationship is awesome. I’m not one that necessarily has a strict schedule when it comes to nursing and she pretty much nurses on demand. This means that she obviously might want to eat while we are out and about and I’m ok with that. I’ve gotten more comfortable with nursing in public, but being a very modest person, I like to be covered. It’s always nice to have helps in staying covered and that is where Poncho Baby comes in.

Poncho Baby takes the idea of a traditional nursing cover and puts a bit of a spin on it. The poncho baby nursing cover is one that goes over your head and provides coverage in the front and back. It can be worn as a poncho, and used as a nursing cover, stroller cover, or as a blanket for baby. It is made of a lightweight cotton, and can be easily folded up to throw in your diaper bag.

 

Poncho Baby Nursing Cover

 

When we first got the Poncho Baby nursing cover, I got to using it right away. I found it to be convenient to put over my head. There is a piece of stiff material or boning that is on the front of the poncho that essentially allows a peekaboo for you to look down at your baby. I really liked this and found that it was easy to see baby and get her attached. The material is a breathable cotton and very lightweight. I’ve noticed in the past that if I nurse with a normal blanket, Nova gets sweaty and restless while nursing. If I use the poncho baby, she stays a lot cooler and the nursing session goes more smoothly. There are a couple of inside pockets that can hold a pacifier, burp cloth or other small items which is nice. The design comes in a square or oval and there are 5 different color combinations to choose from.

 

Poncho Baby Nursing Cover Review

 

I do think there is room for improvement with this nursing cover. The fabric wrinkles very easily and when the fabric is wrinkled, it makes for less coverage in the front while you are nursing baby. I could iron it, but that isn’t very realistic when it’s usually folded up in my diaper bag. I did notice that if I was very careful with how I folded it, there were a few less wrinkles.

It would be nice if there were more coverage in the front. My baby is only 6 months old and if she wiggles around a lot or we have to adjust, it’s easier to become uncovered on the sides.  I’m sure the size would be great for a newborn though. I’m also not sure that I would wear this as a poncho by itself because of the bowed out boning in the front.

You can purchase this product at Poncho Baby for $58.

 

Bandana Bib
One other item that Poncho Baby carries is the Bandana Bib. It’s a super cute and stylish alternative to traditional bibs. We definitely need this as baby girl has been a super drooler the past few months.  It is made of muslin cotton and has two different snaps which actually helps it grow with baby.  It comes in 5 colors as well.  It does wrinkle easily like the cover and once it’s washed, it needs to be ironed or air dried to make it look like it does out of the packaging.

    Tiffany,

    Thank you so much for the wonderful review about the Poncho Baby Nursing Cover. As a mom of two and the owner of Poncho Baby, I wanted to provide more inside information about the product since they are so many wonderful moms with great comments.
    Poncho Baby Nursing Covers are made in the USA with 100% premium imported muslin cotton, which is the same fabric like the Aden and Anais muslin blankets. They are made with a very soft and breathable natural cotton fabric.
    Poncho Baby Nursing Covers come in square style, which can provide more coverage in the side and has the same price.
    I love that more moms are breastfeeding each day and I love to create multifunctional products for moms on the go.

    Thanks,
    Carolina

    When my girls were babies having proper coverage was always in issue for me. Wiggly babies and a large bosom made it essential to have something that covered me enough without making me or baby too hot. She actually made me a cover very much like this, but it had better coverage. It did wrinkle the same; a consequence of shoving it in a diaper bag.

    That style would be good for winter but here in Texas, where the majority of the year is HOT, it would be sweltering to wear a poncho while nursing.

    That is such a cute idea, and so much easier than trying to make the blanket stay up on your shoulder and not being able to see the baby.

    It’s a nice poncho. But I think it is sad that in this society we have to cover up when breastfeeding in public. It’s the natural thing and yet society has twisted it into something that needs to be covered up as if it is shameful.

    This is such a great idea, I wish I had it back when I was nursing my kids. I would have used it often. Such a pretty design too, so wouldn’t make one feel out of fashion while in public nursing!

    I really like the idea of the front and back coverage but it needs to be done in a better material.

    I always just used a small nursery blanket to cover up if I was in public. This would have been so much easier. No need to worry about it slipping on down your shoulder.

    It actually looks very nice 🙂 I’m the type to just throw it in my bag, so it would totally wrinkle for me.

    Such a beautiful baby. My daughter would like this cover for at home use. She just had my first grand baby and even at home we all could use some privacy when nursing.

    I never nursed my children so I am not sure what is standard in this market, but I certainly love the idea of feeling comfortably covered in public and the fun color options. The wrinkle factor would drive me nuts!

    That looks so much easier to use than the nursing covers they had out when I was bf’ing Kaydee. They were so bad I always ended up using a receiving blanket.

    I’m not sure if I would like the fabric on the back. And you are right there doesn’t seem to be enough coverage on the sides.

    I really like this. I’m a also a modest person and could never find a nursing cover that I liked. I eventually made my own that covered how I wanted it to. Something like the poncho baby nursing cover would have also done the trick.

    This seems like too much coverage. I used to make nursing covers that were super light weight and had one adjustable strap that went around your neck.

    I think the idea is fabulous & I like the color/fabric, too. My daughter would never nurse under a cover so it wouldn’t have worked for us, but I know lots of babies happily use them.
