I’m Expecting and Want To Breastfeed, But I’m Insecure About How I Will Fit Breastfeeding Into My Busy Lifestyle.

Take comfort in knowing that many mothers have been in your shoes.  I am a very modest Mom and really had to think about the challenges I was about to undertake.  Many of our insecurities about breastfeeding have to do with the social aspects of “How will I do this in public?”.  Many times we think about the things we enjoy in our routine daily lives when it is just us we have to think about.  Partly we are concerned about being limited to the things we do and enjoyed prior to having a precious child.  For instance, I for one would like my routine coffee at Starbucks on Tuesday mornings with the moms group I belonged to.  Another example is going shopping on weekends in busy malls.  When I thought about how I will continue to do the things I enjoy outside my home but at the same time offer my child the well documented benefits of breastfeeding, I sometimes became frustrated with the decision.  I felt like I was being selfish, because I knew what would be best for my child but I also had a hard time dealing with having to give up or modify some of the social aspects of my daily life.

A word of advice; don’t feel like you will have to reinvent and live a completely different social lifestyle because you are having a baby and will be breastfeeding.  Will things change, yes they will…less sleep, changing diapers etc. but one thing you don’t have to change are the things you do and enjoy because you feel like you will be challenged to breastfeed on the go.

How you handle and prepare for the change when committing to breastfeeding will be key.  Like most moms, we look and evaluate products to assist us.  We do our research and usually we take the recommendation of another mom that has used something that works well. In regards to a breastfeeding cover, I for one took recommendations from other moms that breastfed and purchased several breastfeeding covers that was recommended by my friends.  I encourage you to talk to other moms about how they handle breastfeeding in public.  You really need to understand what they like about the products they purchased to address breastfeeding in public but also what challenges they continued to have.  At the bottom of this blog post, I’ve included some good questions to get answered.  These are the questions I had that resulted in the development of the Covillow.  If you find answers to these questions prior to your first experience breastfeeding in public, you can feel confident that it will be a pleasant experience.

We at Covillow® understand the challenges you face and think about when making the decision to breastfeed.  If you are insecure about handling the privacy aspect of breastfeeding on the go, comfort for you and your baby, or how you will fit breastfeeding into your busy lifestyle, Covillow® has the answer.

QUESTIONS FOR OTHERS:

  1. Do you use products at home to prop your baby up while nursing, that are too large to take with you on the go?
  2. Are you fearful of breastfeeding in public?
  3. Are you concerned about what others will think when they see you breastfeeding in public?
  4. Have you felt insecure about breastfeeding in a restaurant because your nursing cover did not cover your sides and back?
  5. Has it been difficult to get your baby comfortable enough to nurse properly in public, because you had nothing to prop your baby up on?
  6. Has your baby pulled or pushed your nursing cover away while breastfeeding in public, exposing you?
  7. Has the wind ever blown aside your nursing cover while feeding your baby, exposing you?

Covillow Press Release

We wanted to share our Press Release on our blog to share additional information on Covillow

Covillow, LLC Launches New Product: Breastfeeding Cover Addresses Social and Emotional Challenges of Breastfeeding in Public

PRWebPRWeb – Tue, Jun 21, 2011

The Covillow combines a breastfeeding cover and pillow into one unique breastfeeding accessory that provides privacy like never before

Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 21, 2011

Covillow, LLC today announced the launch of their new nursing top aimed at addressing the social, emotional and practical challenges mothers face when breastfeeding in public. The Covillow combines a breastfeeding cover and pillow into one unique accessory that provides privacy like never before. This new nursing top is functional and easily transportable, making breastfeeding in public a truly pleasant experience.“Covillow’s goal is to make it possible for all mothers to breastfeed in public. Based on our market research, existing products did not work to the extent where mothers felt secure in a broad range of public settings. In fact, while using conventional products, many mothers still searched for secluded areas in restaurants, shopping centers, sporting events and parks when it was time to breastfeed,” said Candice Boehm, Covillow, LLC Founder and CEO. “When a baby is hungry, they don’t want to wait for their mom to find a private place to breastfeed. Using the Covillow, mothers and babies don’t have to wait; they have a convenient nursing top which allows them to breastfeed anywhere, anytime, in privacy and comfort. Plus, mothers save money by getting two products in one.”

The Covillow, a patented breastfeeding cover and pillow-in-one, was designed to provide a private, comfortable and convenient breastfeeding experience for the mother while placing others around her at ease by knowing everything is concealed. Although long term health benefits of breastfeeding babies are well documented, and the costs for breastfeeding are much lower than purchasing formula, women in the U.S continue to face the stigma associated with breastfeeding in public. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, only 28 states, the District of Columbia, and the Virgin Islands exempt breastfeeding from public indecency laws.

The Covillow’s patented breastfeeding cover design addresses a mother’s fear of her breast or skin being exposed while breastfeeding in public. Covillow LLC saw a need in the marketplace for a nursing top which provided complete coverage while making breastfeeding in public easy to perform privately, conveniently, fashionably and comfortably for both mother and baby.

According to Candice Boehm, conventional breastfeeding covers typically protect the front of the mother to try to keep her from being exposed, but do not take into consideration the baby pushing and grabbing the cover, wind if breastfeeding outside, open back chairs in restaurants, or other unexpected occurrences that might expose a mother’s breast or bare skin on her sides and back. Many nursing pillows on the market, while great for home use, were not convenient or easily transportable for moms on the go, which posed the challenge of “propping-up” the baby while nursing in public. The Covillow has an extra soft pillow attached, which provides the support needed to make the mom and the baby more comfortable, while convenient enough to roll up and place in a diaper bag.

The Covillow nursing top can be purchased directly from Covillow, LLC at http://www.covillow.com, and was established in 2010 by a stay at home mom and experienced breastfeeding mother of two.
