At the tail end of my pregnancy I was contacted by Julie, who offered me a nursing clip to review. Since I always planned on breastfeeding, I agreed happily. Back then I had these thoughts of how I would be brave and nurse in public.
This never happened.
Peanut was born and I chickened out. I was barely comfortable feeding her in front of my family, forget whipping it out on the street. To those of you who can do it - I bow down.
I did, however, keep the clip in my diaper bag. You know, just in case one day I woke up and decided that I was brave enough.
That also never happened (well, yet).
But while I kept waiting to use the nursing clip in the way that it was intended, I found myself using it almost daily for many other reasons.
It makes just about the cutest pacifier clip.
This is especially handy to us since Peanut’s new favorite activity is to pull the paci out of her mouth and drop it. Then watch as you scramble to pick it up and wipe it off.
And as we’ve embarked on our new solid food adventures, it’s also served as a pretty awesome sippy cup leash.
Then, a coupe of weekends ago, the nursing clip served its ultimate (for now) purpose to me.
Jon and I were chatting happily in the front seat as we made the long drive to Cape Cod. About a half hour prior to our arrival, I thought it’d be a good idea to pump so I could help unpack, hang out with my friends, and otherwise not lock myself in a room for 20 minutes. I looked around and found nothing that would cover me up and protect wondering eyes of passing cars.
Then I remembered that I carry my nursing clip with me at all times. I grabbed my sweater, clipped it with my handy-dandy nursing clip, and went on my merry way.
My hands were free, my pumping parts were covered. I was a happy camper.
Now here’s the awesome part! Julie volunteered to let you have some of her awesome goodies!
