Nursing in Public-Hands Free Nursing Cover

Yes you heard that right... A hands free nursing cover. I repeat a hands free nursing cover. 

How amazing is that right?? 

The Kooi Cover was invented to make breastfeeding in public a more pleasurable experience for mother and baby. Side note: if you are a type of mama who can just whip out your boob in public.. You go girl!! But I am modest, and I don't see myself doing that. So when I came across the Kooi Cover.. I was so thrilled and excited to try this nursing cover out. 

A regular nursing cover is fine inside or when it is cool outside.. But y'all it is so hot where I live right now, and a nursing cover is not going to happen. I have read that using a nursing cover can make it 20 degrees hotter on the inside of the cover. So imagine if it is 90 degrees already outside and adding a normal nursing cover will make your baby feel like they are roasting while they are eating. And who would want to feel that way while they are eating? Not me! 

The Kooi Cover is hands free like I stated above, and attaches to your stroller or you can sit it in your lap. You are covered completely but the cover is not over you or baby. 

There are many different vents through out the cover that will keep your baby nice and cool while feeding. It makes your baby feel like it is in a home environment, and can see you the whole time they are eating. 

There is also a magnetic snap closure that you can lift up to take a peep at baby or you can leave it open for even more ventilation. While I was inside feeding Luca, I just opened it for a minute to look at him, but when I was at the park feeding him outside I left it opened the whole time. There is also a pocket on the inside which is where I put my nipple shield and its case at while I got Luca situated. Now if you all have been following me on Instagram, I have been talking about how I am currently weaning him off the nipple shield, and that we finally got confirmation of his lip and tongue tie and got them clipped. I will be going into more detail about all of that once weaning him off becomes successful. But for now, I am still using the shield and it is very challenging to feed him in public with the shield and a nursing cover. I am usually sweating or my hair is a wreck after finally get him and the nipple shield in place to feed. But y'all the Kooi Cover made it like a breeze for me. Like I stated, I put the shield in the pocket, got him situated, and then grabbed the shield out of the pocket, and bam starting feeding him. The reason why it was so much easier is because him or I didn't have a nursing cover over us and I could see exactly what I was doing. This cover is literally a life safer, especially in my case. 

Another great thing about the cover, is that it is very compact and folds up very easily. You can either attach it to your diaper bag (like I did in the picture on the left), leave it attached to your stroller so it is ready to go whenever baby is hungry, or toss it under the stroller. Some may be able to put it in the diaper bag as well but I have so much stuff in my diaper bag it wouldn't fit in there obviously. 

There is also plenty of  extra strong Velcro so you can attach it your stroller however you please and works best for you and baby. Also there is a string you can pull so you can adjust the cover to your torso. Which is awesome meaning that it would work with everyone and all body types. 

This cover just makes me so happy because I can feed my little man any and everywhere. And him and I can be comfortable wherever I feed him. I remember when he was around 2 months old, I fed him at this same park. It was so hot outside, and all I had was a regular nursing cover. I tried the nursing cover, but it was obviously way to hot to use it and him and I were both sweating. So I said screw it.. I will just whip my boob out really quick and feed him. It always takes me a minute with the nipple shield to feed him, but I did it because my baby needed to eat. I honestly wasn't that comfortable and baby can sense that when they are eating and laying on your chest. Therefore, his nursing experience wasn't the greatest that time. So the pictures above were from round two with the Kooi Cover, and y'all he fed like a champ.. and then a nice breeze went by which was also nice as well. 

Lastly, the Kooi Cover can be used for many different things besides nursing which is amazing. This means that the cover can grow with the baby when they are no longer nursing. How cool is that? So mamas that are no longer nursing your babies or decided not to nurse.. You can use the cover for changing your baby's diaper in public, potty training in public, and changing their clothes in public. Have you ever felt awkward changing your child in public or you just didn't want strangers to see your baby naked?? Well this is the perfect solution for y'all too. The cover gives your children a sense of security as they learn to potty train on the go, and getting their clothes changed.
