Happy Monday, y’all! I’ve got something pretty cool in store for you today, because it includes three of my favorite things: breastfeeding, scarves, and Target. Now, even if you’re not a mom, I have a feeling you’re a fan of Target and probably know of at least one new mama or pregnant lady in your life, so you’re definitely going to want to read this post and enter the giveaway at the bottom. To celebrate the launch of their nursing scarves now stocked in Target stores nationwide, Itzy Ritzy sent me a scarf to try out, and I’m definitely a big fan.
The Itzy Ritzy Nursing Scarf
It’s National Breastfeeding Month, so I’m really excited to talk to you about this product. Nursing Happens: Infinity Breastfeeding Scarf by Itzy Ritzy is the bees knees. It’s lightweight, super soft, the designs are stylish, modern, and perfect for accessorizing; you can find them at Target in the baby section, and they’re multi-functional since you can wear it as a scarf and use it as a nursing cover. Talk about perfect!
I’m usually fine with not using a cover when I nurse my baby, but I know not everyone is comfortable with that, and I totally respect their decision. I wrote a post awhile back called Why I (Do and Don’t) Whip it Out, and while it’s still all true, I’ve noticed myself covering up a little more this time around. When I’m, say, around my husband’s coworkers, or if I’m wearing something that doesn’t cover me up as much as I’d like (because it’s the summer and the hotter it gets, the less I want to wear).
Speaking of summer: I tried this out in 100-degree weather, and we were both sweating by the time she finished nursing, but that would happen with any cover—I just don’t want you to think that it’ll feel like you’re in an air-conditioned room while using it.
Typically if I’m covering up, I grab whatever is handy (a burp cloth, a napkin off the table, spare pair of baby pants, or I’ve even pulled my hair over to one side) to cover up my exposed breast. That’s why I’m really, really in love with this Itzy Ritzy nursing scarf, especially as the weather will start cooling off. I’ve definitely used a scarf to help me cover up before, but this one is extra handy, because it opens up and covers your side and back.
