{a mommy must have!!! • a pink blush maternity review}

**Below are my opinions, and my opinions only, regarding the Pink Blush Charcoal Alternating Striped Nursing Cover/Scarf.  This is a collaboration/review that I agreed to do for the clothing company Pink Blush Maternity.  Any of my opinions or give away done in collaboration to this blog post are in no way associated with blogger, google, or Instagram.  


Loving this scarf!
So, mamas - as a second time mommy there are very few things that I consider a must have that I don't already own!  If you've been through one kiddo, you soon realize there's not much in the NEED column like you had once thought.  However, if you plan to nurse and don't feel super comfortable public nursing, but would like to not have to go hide out to nurse - a good nursing cover is a must! 




I love layering in maternity styles! 

This piece - a nursing cover/scarf has been on my must have list since one of my dear friends started using one. And mamas - there are SO many uses for this adorable accessory!!! Not only does this piece make for an adorable scarf, but there are at least three other clever uses! This one piece will seriously mark three things off your registry!  Sounds too good to be true, right?

So, needless to say - when I had the opportunity to review this product for Pink Blush Maternity, I jumped at it!!! 
I had been looking around for a good quality nursing cover/scarf since my first trimester, and they were all so expensive! Pink Blush Maternity has so many patterns to choose from, the quality is amazing and the price? ... So affordable!

Another casual option for styling
as a scarf!
So let's get down to it. There are all things we look for in products, right?  Fair warning, I'm pretty much in love with this nursing cover, and I think it is just the best thing...

Quality
I'm going to be completely honest for a moment. When I saw how affordable these nursing covers/scarves are through Pink Blush, and agreed to collaborate with them (meaning I'm putting my word on this item), I was so worried about the quality. How could something that is so expensive everywhere else be so affordable AND good quality through this company?! Well. I am more than pleasantly surprised!  The fabric is soft, thick yet breathable so that baby doesn't get too warm. I also feel it will wear well over time and be quite durable! I would compare this fabric to a soft, cozy summer weight blanket! 

Cost
I already mentioned this above, but the cost of this item is so affordable!  Not to mention it will allow you to mark three things off your registry for less than the normal price of one of those items!

Style/Popularity:
These are SO in right now! Which, honestly, is another reason it was on my must have list! If all these mamas on social media and other mommy blogs are using them, they must be legitimately great, right?!

Usefulness:
The "do I really need this?" factor... As a second time mama there are a couple things I've learned the hard way: 

• the apron nursing covers (the ones that have the loop that goes around your neck and then just fabric in the front) don't cover you completely. I used these through my first little one's nursing season because I didn't know anything like this nursing cover existed!  • the car seat covers that loop on to the handle of the carseat wave in the wind and often flap open or fall off.  • & the shopping cart covers... oh goodness.  Don't get me started on that one.  Let's just say I gave my not cheap brand shopping card cover away for free.  I used it once and it wasn't a fan.

This nursing cover wraps all the way around you, fully covering you while nursing.  
This car seat cover snugly fits around the car seat and handle, so it isn't going to blow away or fall off. 
This shopping cart cover isn't bulky, it will stay on snugly, and is easy to get on and off.

Harper is SO ready for her baby sister to be here!

This normally would make me cringe!  Another option
with this scarf saves you from all those yucky
shopping cart germs!

Harper loved having a "blanket" as she called it
on the cart with her.  She kept saying, "sooo comfy!"

As I have now had this piece in full use for almost three months (my second daughter was born on March 11th!), I can honestly say I NEVER leave home without it! Like ever. I've literally turned around, gone home, and grabbed it when I've forgotten it.  I absolutely love this piece and recommend it to any nursing mama out there! I've mostly used it as a carseat cover and a nursing cover the last few months...but that's what I love - even as my little one grows, there's still so many uses for this ONE item! ♥

  1. Love the review! I always get suspicious when I see something at a good price and wonder if it has good quality. I'm glad to hear that Pink Blush has good quality for an excellent price!

    1. Isn't it sad that we always assume the more expensive option is better? ha! My whole experience with Pink Blush was spot on! ♥

  2. Seriously obsessed with pink blush. They're the only reasonably priced maternity line I've found that have plus size styles. You'd think other companies would be more boob friendly with maternity clothes, but nope. Pink blush has the only cute plus size stuff I've found.
