Give Away: Obuba Nursing Cover-Up



The Obuba wrap takes care of the only complaint I had about the traditional nursing cover--no coverage for the back!  I think we can all agree that your entire midsection is affected by the stretching for baby, so I am happy to have something to conceal that mess while my Tshirt is hiked up in feeding mode.  The Obuba provides complete coverage for nursing in public.  I have never even had a "close one."  It fits larger nursers, smaller nurses, and everyone in-between. 

Although I LOVE that it covers my back, I am just as impressed that I can multi-purpose it!  I cut down on the bulk of carrying multiple things for baby because I don't need to pack an extra blanket.  The Obuba can be a very soft, light stretch, machine washable, large cotton blanket.  It is definitely a nice material.

Other things I love about it: 
1) super cute colors and trims! 
2) I also love the removeable velcro strap (it buttons on-yay!) that allows you to wrap the Obuba super tight for conserving valuable diaper bag space.    
3) I own the red one and have found the dyes to be high quality with no bleeding when I machine wash it with regular detergent. 


I'm not sure why it's called Obuba (pronounced Oh-Boo-Bah), which doesn't seem much better than the lovely named "Hooter Hider."  Regardless, I am now a faithful follower.

Buy it at the Obuba official website, or save a little cash and buy what I think must be last year's clearance styles at their etsy shop.  Just keep in mind it would make a great baby shower gift for new moms who are trying to figure out nursing!

Who wants to find out how great the Obuba Wrap is for themselves?  Enter by leaving a comment with the color you would like for a chance to be our random winner on January 21st!

This has been my gripe about nursing covers too, no coverage around the back! That & how my baby loves to tug them off & show everyone my boobs! With the back covered she wouldn't be able to pull it off and I can keep my privates private!

Very nice product. I sure hope this is my lucky give away!

I love the sky blue and paisley style. This would come in so handy to have.

LFinn said...

I use (and frequently make as gifts) a "Hooter Hider" style nursing cover, but the concept of this cover looks great! I would love to try it out! All of the color combinations are great, but I like the Rich Cream/English Jacquard or the Brick Red one...but of course the Chocolate Brown ones are both adorable. Hard to choose!

I love the Brick Red. With another little one coming in May, this is a must have! I only wish I would have known about them sooner!
