Great gift idea for breastfeeding moms

Hold on to your diaper bags, breastfeeding moms, because I've got another product review and contest just for you.

Now I know that many breastfeeding advocates are big into just letting it all hang out for the world to see. Why should they cover up when doing something as natural as feeding their child? I agree with the concept, but no matter how accepting they world might become about that particular subject in the future, modest ol' me is happy to just stay covered up. It's just the way I'm wired.

I mentioned in the past that I was only able to breastfeed for six weeks, and I would have loved to be able to use the Cover-Me strap from Little Carr. Of course, the genius idea of a single, convenient, and oh-so-simple strap that can attach to any blanket, towel, or cloth you have on hand to make it an instant nursing cover came from a mom! And I so wish I had known about it for the short time I had breastfeeding Buttercup.

The Cover-me straps come in a variety of fun prints and run $12, or you can upgrade your nursing gear and get the matching Cover-Me Strap and Little Carr Blankie for $38 in hot pink or blue. Either way, I think this is a pretty sweet baby shower gift idea or Christmas gift for a new breastfeeding mother.

So who wants to win one? I've got a Cover-Me Strap and Little Carr Blankie in blue up for grabs by one lucky winner. To enter, visit the site and leave me a berrie (read: comment) telling me what pattern is your favorite. Contest ends at midnight, EST, on Nov. 9 and is open to US and Canada only. The winner will have four days from the announcement date to contact me or a new winner will be selected.

As always, extra entries will be available for those who:

* subscribe to my RSS feed and comment letting me know you did so.
* Blog about contest and link to this post.
* Non-bloggers can email three of their friends about the contest and CC me on the email. Girl Scout's honor that I will never bother these sweet people. I promise!
* Grab my Berrie Sweet Picks button and place it on your blog page. I'll check!
* Follow me on Twitter! (nickname: berriesweetest)
Please note all entries MUST include a valid email address to be considered for the drawing! That means that well, all entries must include an email address to be considered valid. Simple enough, right? ;)

And that's it! Good luck to everyone who enters.

My favorite pattern is either the Black Polka Dot or the Red Floral. This is such a clever idea!

I too suffer from the "modesty" factor. I have five months to go before my little one is here, but I love the black and white polka dotted one and I think this is a spectacular idea! I already follow you on twitter, etc. So, this is my entry! :)

For the Strap alone, I love the Red Floral Cover-Me Strap. But for the match I'd choose the Little Carr Hot Pink Blankie, and would have to pair that with the Black Polka Dot Cover-Me Strap.

Corie said...

I LOVE all of them, but the Black Polka dot one and the zebra are my two favourites!!!!

Thanks for the chance to win one, I definately need this!!! lol
