Cover Me Ponchos - Pregnancy Style

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!
