Reviews

I had a request for reviews of my nursing covers. So I've decided I should open up a section for reviews. I will start with my review, and then I ask that anyone and everyone who has purchased or used one of my covers, please feel free to give your opinions for future interested customers.

I had my son Jack on December 1st, 2007. I didn't really go out in public much until a few days before Christmas, so I hadn't really been too concerned with covering up. We were at my in-laws during the holidays, and my sister-in-law noticed my struggle to keep covered while trying to nurse in the family room with a blanket. I was really getting frustrated when she told me that she had heard of a nursing cover and explained it. She said that since I did a lot of sewing, I should be able to figure out how to make one. The next day, we went to the fabric store, got some fabric, D-rings, and boning. After several hours, we had our first Nursing Covers. I have since modified them in a couple of places and love using my cover. I also wanted a little matching bag for my cover, so I made one of those too.

My sister-in-law and I went to a swap meet a few weeks later. We decided to make a few more covers and see if we could sell them at the swap. I used my cover to display it to those interested. Most didn't even know I was nursing until I told them. We sold a few of them, and had orders for a couple more. The business has snowballed since then.

I love my cover. I made one for each of my sisters and a few of my cousins, and they all love them too. Please feel free to leave your own review. It would be greatly appreciated.

I bought a Baby Hide Away Nursing Cover when I knew I was going out of town to visit my in-laws and would not have a private place to nurse. Thank goodness I did, because family circumstances kept us there for over 2 weeks and the cover saved me. It covers very well. I love the boning so I could see my baby, who isn't a great nurser and needs help. I also loved that it goes around the neck so my son can't pull it off as he'l gotten older. I love the matching bag so it fits compactly into my diaper bag. The price was so reasonable and I received it in just a few days. I have already recommended them to friends and will continue to do so.

I also bought a nursing cover, and all I can say is that I wished that I would have known about for my first two kids. The nursing cover is wonderful. Who likes to feel like they are excluded just because they have to nurse. With the nursing cover there is no need to feel that you have to go away from the conversation in your own world. Most times people don't even know you are nursing, and if they do its no stress cause you are very well covered and, no worries of the baby pulling it off. Mychelle did a wonderful job, I have made one of my own awhile back, but Mychelle's are much better and come with a great bag, so convenient. Thanks, and I recommend them to all those mothers out there struggling with a blanket. They are definitely well worth it at a very reasonable price. I bought two and love them both. Thanks

I LOVE IT.
I heard about the Baby Hide Away cover about a month before my son was born and got two. I'm really glad I did! It is so nice to be able to be well covered and yet not have to be isolated when I feed my baby.
The boning at the neck is particularly nice, it lets me keep an eye on him while he is eating so I can help him when he needs it.
I would highly recommend one to anyone who wants to breast-feed their baby!

I love this thing. I wish I had known about it much sooner. It is very light and breathable, so the baby doesn't get too warm. I can see my baby well and Mychelle even made it to my specs since I am a plus sized gal. I get so many comments about it and people are so impressed with it. It is easy to care for and the bag is perfect. It was sewn and shipped very quickly and was quite reasonably priced.

Mine was very well made... and exactly what I ordered. It was also cheaper and bigger than most of the other covers I could buy at the store, and I could pick out the fabric I wanted! I wish I would have had one with my first child! It was shipped fast and she had great communication. I plan on telling all my friends about it! Thanks!

Thanks! I'm so glad that you like them. I do my best to make them well. I also try really hard to be quick to reply to people and get their cover to them fast.

I LOVE my Baby Hide Away Nursing Cover!! I can nurse my daughter and not have to go and hide. The bag that comes with is a great space saver in my diaper bag. Also, the cover is made very well, maybe better than some more expensive covers. I get compliments all the time on my cover. It stays up great!! And it's also bigger than some of the nursing covers I looked at. I recommend them to any nursing mother!!

I love my nursing cover as well. My husband and I went to a family reunion when my daughter was about a month old and we were outside for most of it. It was so easy to nurse her under the cover even when it got windy. I think that this is the PERFECT baby shower gift. Every woman should have one if they plan on nursing!

I bought a Baby Hide Away Nursing Cover just before I had my baby and it was one of the BEST things I bought! I also bought one for my coworker who had a baby the same time I did for a baby gift. This is a perfect gift for any mom who is planning to breastfeed. It is convenient, inexpensive and allows you to be totally discrete when you have to feed your baby in public. My daughter is exclusively breastfed and I don't think that would be possible without this great cover!

That is a wonderful idea and very useful for mothers.

I love my nursing cover. Thank you so much again for making it so quickly. I love the boning in it and that you can adjust the neck area instead of just tying it.

I love my nursing cover! I can actually go to church and be at church rather than in the mothers room! Everyone wants to know where I got it! Of course I'm sending them to you! Thank you for custom designing my nursing cover, my little baby loves the design on the inside!
