these hidden gems {GIVEAWAY}

I'm so excited to be featuring These Hidden Gems: a nursing cover that can also be used on a car seat and shopping cart (or as a blanket, spit up rag, etc. You momma's know how handy multi use items are ;))
It took months (at least 6) before I became confident enough to nurse in public with a cover. I used to hide in my car to feed Mia, or just not leave my house if it was getting close to feeding time. Part of my issue was that nursing is difficult to get used to. I felt like I needed 10 extra hands to make it easier, ha ha! But once nursing felt more natural and Mia was big enough to make it easier on both of us, she was also very mobile and curious. It took practice to nurse her covered, without having her rip the blanket (that's all I used) off. When I found out I was pregnant with James I noticed these nursing covers that gave 360 coverage and I knew I had to get one because 1- I didn't want to be confined to my house or car to feed my baby and 2- I am always on the go and always have someone climbing all over me thanks to a certain toddler... I don't have time to find the perfect nursing corner to keep my back covered since a blanket only covers the front.
James was only 2 weeks old when we made our first family outing to a pumpkin patch when James needed to eat. It was windy out and I was so grateful to have my cover from These Hidden Gems to keep James protected, plus I didn't have to worry about my cover blowing away! Fast forward to my Disneyland vacation a couple weeks ago... my cover became a lifesaver! I can't tell you how many times I nursed James standing up, but it happens quite frequently there (all the bare belly's/back's were a dead giveaway, ha ha!) Everyone knows how precious your spot in line is while waiting for a ride, so instead of missing out, I fed James in line, while watching shows (standing of course) and while walking to our next destination. Kudos to the momma's who are brave enough to nurse uncovered, but that's just not my cup of tea. I like to be covered from all angles. Plus it was COLD so James and I both had a little extra coverage thanks to These Hidden Gems!

If you haven't figured it out by now, I am in love with my nursing cover and highly recommend every mom has one, whether you're nursing or not! As I mentioned above, you can use this cover for so many different things, it's a staple in my diaper bag! These also make the BEST baby gift if you know someone who is expecting ;) These Hidden Gems is offering 15% off your purchase with the code "BRINK15"... PLUS there is a giveaway to win a cover of your choice on my Instagram, hurry and enter!! Happy shopping!

I was like you with Nathan. I never nursed in public. I either planned quick outings around him eating or I nursed in the backseat of my car. This cover looks amazing though!!! A friend gave me a nursing cover that she never used but it just covers the front and like you said I would feel more comfortable with the 360* cover. I will have to keep this company in mind for baby #2 someday! Very neat!!

Oh my gosh, I love this. I never ever nursed in public with Spencer. I was so scared of exposing myself. I tried once when he was 13 days old on a plane, and I felt too nervous. I will definitely enter this for baby two though!
