BabyBond Nursing "Cover" Review & Discount

"Cover mom, not her baby." The BabyBond Nursing Sash allow this to happen. Moms can stay modest and not show more skin than they are comfortable and baby is able to stay uncovered so mom and baby can bond more.
From the site:
BabyBond Flex™ is worn like a sash, functioning like a nursing top. Nurse from the top of your shirt. Separate the layers of fabric to achieve latch on. Double panel keeps breast covered above & below. Belly & back remain covered with your own shirt. Removable 9 x 12″ double layer terry velour burp cloth. Able to attach any cloth or wear without cloth attached. Stores in matching pouch.
Let me say, I love my BabyBond, even if I did end up asking for a size too large. :) At first it took me a few tries to get to a point where I felt comfortable using the BabyBond. I found it worked better for me (with my too large for me BabyBond) to put some safety pins in it where the next size BabyBond would sit. Once I had it to a size that worked better, I was able to start nursing my little girl almost anywhere and feel comfortable that I was not showing too much skin. I am a fairly modest mom and this helps my sweaty baby not have to be covered every time we nurse in public.

I received a Flex BabyBond to try out for this review. The difference between the original and the flex is an added removable burp cloth. The Original Bond has a built in burp cloth. The terry velour burp cloth is super soft! I am in love with the removable cloth. My little one tends to be messy when she nurses, so I can put the cloth under her chin to catch some of her dribbles and keep them off of me and the sash.
The BabyBond is easy to take everywhere with you because it comes in a super easy and convenient storage pouch. All you do is roll up the sash and tuck it in to the pouch. I put a clip on mine so that I could easily clip to whichever diaper bag I am using.

I love this product and recommend it to moms who are planning to nurse their little ones.

And now for an awesome bonus for my readers. The wonderful people at BabyBond have offered a discount of 25% off products on their site. The code for this discount is: LYNIFER.

Words of Advice

Our church family was blessed on Sunday to learn that one of our moms is expecting once again. We were all so happy for her. This is going to be a big adjustment again for the family as her two boys are going to be 9 and 10 when the newest addition arrives. Actually the youngest has his birthday about 4 days after the mom's due date. :)
One of the first things I mentioned to her when we found out was about using cloth diapers. She was interested in learning more about them. I told her that they are not the diapers she remembers and she was happy to know that. We have three women (I included) that use cloth diapers in our church. Two of us were there for the big announcement Sunday. 
I can't wait to school her on the new cloth diapers that are out there. The other mom may even have a bunch of BumGenius that she can sell to the new mommy, since her youngest is now potty training. There are so many diapers available to new moms. While you can still use flats and covers like our moms and grandmothers used, you can also use prefolds, and pockets, and AIOs. Oh My!
This is where I want a little bit of your help.
What words of advice would you give to a mom new to cloth diapering?
I want to be able to offer her not only me advice, but the advice of other moms who have used cloth and may have differing views from mine.
