If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know we have a new member of our family. He’ll be 2 months old tomorrow! It’s been an adjustment, as new babies always are, but the blessings far outweigh the trials.

In the past, I’ve mainly reviewed homeschool products and Christian books. But with this new addition, I hope to be able to add a new type of review: Baby products.

Since I am nursing my little guy, the Pirose Nursing Cover was an excellent first baby product to review.


The Pirose Nursing Cover was developed by a nursing mother. It is lightweight, fashionable, and multi-purpose. It can not only be used as a nursing cover, it can also be worn as a scarf, shawl, or hair accessory, or used as a car seat or stroller cover. It is large enough to provide adequate coverage for discreet nursing, but small enough to fold up and carry in your diaper bag or purse. It comes with a draw-string bag for storage.

I nursed my 4 older children for about 1 year each . With each child, I’ve gotten a little more comfortable with the process and found myself needing to nurse in less private situations. Probably because with each subsequent baby, I’ve had older children that need to go places. So while I could completely center my schedule around the baby’s feeding times with my oldest child, that just doesn’t work anymore. However, I do want to be discreet so that I don’t embarrass myself or the people around me.

Over the years, I’ve tried using various blankets for covering up while nursing. I even tried out another brand of nursing cover that a friend loaned me. The Pirose is by far the best nursing cover I have used.

First, its thin and breathable fabric is so much more comfortable than a blanket. Also, since it goes over your neck and shoulders, the baby can not pull it down, nor can you drop it. It is completely hands-free once you get started. (Other than holding the baby of course!) I love that it is small so I can store it in my combination purse/diaper bag and don’t have to worry about not having it when I’m out. I honestly can’t see myself wearing it as a scarf after the baby is weaned though. But I never wear scarves, so I’m not the best judge of that. Even without using it for a scarf, I still think the Pirose is an excellent product for a good price. I highly recommend it!

The Pirose is available in a variety of patterns and sizes from RenoRose.com for $35.00. For more information, you can also become a fan of Reno Rose on Facebook .
