Do you remember this post? The post where I wished and hoped for some sweet and wonderful gifts for this pregnancy? Well, that sweet Baby Registry Fairy came through!!
A few months ago, Cover Me Ponchos put out a call on Instagram for bloggers. In exchange for an honest review, CMP would send me a poncho of my choice. I emailed them so fast your head would spin. I picked a beautifully hued blue poncho. A little gift for me for now and then such a help once Annika is here.
So, I should probably explain something. I had such a hard time breastfeeding with Miah and Lucas. I never knew that it would be so hard to cover up, let alone breastfeed in public. Think layered receiving blankets when I was out and about and having to breastfeed in public. Ten years ago it wasn't as acceptable as it is now. Ten years ago, I became defeated and stopped breastfeeding altogether after a short six weeks. Not my finest moment. Not at all...
But last May, during Elevate, I spent time with Kristine and Ernie Zeno. She was exclusively breastfeeding (and still is - you go girl!) and made it look so easy. She wore a Cover Me Poncho and I asked her if it was worth investing in one. She, hands down, said I had to get one. It would make my life so much easier. My CMP is getting me excited to breastfeed. I really want to do it this time...make a real effort.
What I love about this poncho is not only that I can use it for breastfeeding, but I'll be able to use it for so many other things. I can use it as a really cute poncho, as you can see with these pics, and I could use it as an infinity scarf. I've used it as a bathing suit cover up already, as well. Trust me, no one needs to see those pics, lol.
Once Miss Annika is here, I'll of course use it as a cover-up during breastfeeding times, but I can also use it as a baby carrier cover. So versatile...I wish they had stuff like this when Miah and Lucas were babies.
Well, now I get to experience pregnancy and my newest baby in a whole new way. I can't wait to show you more once she is here!
Here's some more info on Cover Me Ponchos, too. Expecting? Check them out. Not expecting? I'd still get one - cutest accessory to any outfit!
