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!
