For new moms starting to take babies on summer outings and errands, versatility and sun protection are your best friends! As you start getting use to the added items needed to leave the house, finding products that do a lot, like the 4 & More Multiuse Cover, will help you feel confident on the go.
The silky Boppy® 4 & More Multiuse Cover has breathable mesh on one side, providing airflow to keep cool, and full coverage 50+ UPF knit on the other side, providing privacy and sun protection. The airflow side over the car seat keeps your baby covered and cool. The privacy side is great to help eliminate distractions while nursing on the go. This product is great as an infant car seat cover to shield baby from unwanted touches, a shopping cart cover, a baby carrier cover, stroller cover, restaurant high chair cover and even works as a cover on a playground baby swing.
It has buttons for a custom fit for multiple uses to avoid frustration while out and it packs up small so you can toss it in your bag for whenever you need it.
For moms looking for an apron style nursing solution, we recommend the Boppy® Nursing Cover. We want moms to always feel comfortable and confident while nursing. Whether you opt for a cover or not while feeding, if your decision feels right for you and your baby, it is right!
We’ve found that many moms like using a cover to keep baby focused on eating and to remove other distractions. If baby is engaging with the environment instead of nursing, a cover can be a great tool even if you are comfortable not using one.
The Boppy® Nursing Cover is a great option for summer. It packs small in an integrated pouch and is open in the back so you and baby may have more air flow than a poncho or scarf design.
Our Boppy cover has a few more features we love too that make this product stand out: a ridged neckline so you can see baby while feeding, an adjustable neck line, a SlideLine™ nursing tracker and an integrated storage pocket.
And if you are looking for ergonomic nursing support on the go, we have the new, machine washable, Anywhere Nursing Pillow. The breathable yoga-inspired fabric belt holds the pillow in place. The open design is great for women plus sized to petite and women recovering from c-sections. The contoured shape allows for multiple feeding positions in a smaller size. This nursing pillow packs up small in an easy-to-carry shape for uncompromising ergonomic support while nursing wherever you are. Storage is a breeze. Hang it, wrap it or toss it in a tote.
As we start to get back to normal life, we may still be carrying some fears or anxieties. Starting to bring baby out can be a stressful milestone for mom on a normal year let alone a pandemic year! We have a few great products that may help.
One thing that can help are products that shield baby from unwanted touches. Our ComfyHug and ComfyChic carriers have what we call our Snuggle Screen™. It pulls over the back of baby’s head and snuggles them in. It adds a little coziness, a little coverage from the sun, and is a visual sign and barrier for touches. Also, our carriers are all made with yoga inspired fabric and mesh for comfort and breathability for you and baby. Our ComfyFit Hybrid Baby Carrier is made with a 50+ UPF fabric…perfect for sunny days!
A great product for adding a barrier between your child and public surfaces for babies who are a bit older, is our Boppy® Shopping Cart Cover.
All-around coverage when shopping or dining out. Make outings with baby worry free with the Boppy Shopping Cart and Highchair Cover. Plush 360-degree coverage keeps baby comfy while adding a barrier between baby and those public use shopping carts and highchairs. Fully padded, any potential pinches or scratchy spots on the cart are covered. A SlideLine toy loop runs along the front of the cover to provide easy-to-reach entertainment for baby and keeps toys off the floor while shopping or dining out. This cover includes a soft toy attached, or you can swap it out for a favorite toy or pacifier to keep baby occupied, giving you a few more moments for errands or lunch. The 2-point safety belt and elastic corners keep both baby and the cover in place. You can shop confidently knowing that the Boppy Shopping Cart and Highchair Cover passes all U.S. safety standards and fits most shopping carts and restaurant highchairs. The easy-wipe fabric keeps things clean between uses and is machine washable.
What ever your outing style, Boppy is here to support you!
