SavvyBaby Grey Chevron Nursing Cover Review #savvybabynursingcover

by Ivy B

I recently posted about my breastfeeding fears and all the reasons I don’t want to try breastfeeding again, but I’ve come to the conclusion that since no one is home to help with the baby all day, I might as well give it a shot.  So, if I’m going to do it, I need to arm myself with some breastfeeding essentials.  Disclaimer:  I’ve been given the chance to review the Grey Chevron Nursing Cover by SavvyBaby.  I was provided this nursing cover for free in exchange for my honest review of the product.

To me, breastfeeding in public is uncomfortable.  I’m always worried about having a “wardrobe malfunction, or really a baby malfunction  (I can thank the first kiddo’s breastfeeding issues for those fears).  Plus, I know that nursing makes others uncomfortable.  Besides, who am I to teach someone else’s kids about breastfeeding?  No thank you.  I’ve always believed that having a cover reduces uncomfortable situations, and I’ve found it easy to tell children that “baby is taking a nap” while we’re both covered up, and the kids are none-the-wiser.  All that said, a nursing cover is considered a breastfeeding essential in my book.

So, in testing out this nursing cover, I was excited to get one that had the built-in boning to help me maintain eye contact with my baby while nursing.  My first cover didn’t have that feature, so I had to tug at the top to see her when I wanted and I was certain the boning was going to make this a bit easier on us.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t that pleased with the cover BUT, please understand that my opinion is based on the fact that I have a really small frame.  **I don’t believe my issues would be the same for people with average or larger frames.**

My excitement dissipated quickly.  On my small build, I have to really cinch up the neckline so the cover doesn’t fall over my shoulders.  In doing so, this creates a very dramatic circle in the boning and I have the cover way out in front of my face.  With such a large, open area, anyone sitting behind me or hovering over me could easily get a nice (maybe not so nice) view, which is something I try to avoid.  So, I don’t get the results that the model in the stock photo gets, and you can see she doesn’t have the strap cinched up.

In trying to alleviate the problem with the large circle in my face, I find myself twisting the cover  slightly to the side and re-adjust the fabric.  Either way, the fabric below the boning is always needing to be pushed outward so as not to obstruct my view.

The quality of the fabric and stitching appear to be very nice.  It’s not heavy and the D-rings are nice and smooth to make easy adjustments as needed.  Despite my own issues, I love the set which comes with a handy, matching drawstring tote, plus a free set of reusable nursing pads.  The set is currently selling on Amazon for $19.99.  I’d still consider recommending this to try.

Any tips for me to make this nursing cover work for me?
