latchOn nursing blanket strap is designed for busy moms, nursing on-the-go, who want to discreetly feed their babies in public without having to haul around a separate nursing blanket. This is so wonderful for me because I am not a mom who carries around a huge diaper bag. I know a mom who literally has to have her “to-go” stuff on one of those pull-carts.
Measuring just 2 ½” wide x 19 ½” long, latchOn folds up so small, it fits easily in any diaper bag, purse, or even in your pocket. Babies need lots of “stuff” when they travel, and latchOn frees up precious diaper bag space. And weighing less than 2 oz, it’s a breeze to carry and to wear. My kids are lucky if I bring my purse with me let alone a ginormous bag filled with all sorts of whos-its. latchOn is perfect for me because I know that Clara will always have a blanket with her in her car seat, and latchOn® folds up so small, it will fit in my purse or I could even leave it in the console of my car. I even have attached the clips to the car seat canopy and then all I have to worry about are diapers and wipes. How easy-peezy!
The LatchOn attaches easily to any blanket
latchOn® eliminates the need to carry a bulky nursing cover. Whichever blanket you have with you quickly and easily converts to a nursing blanket. I love that I can choose the blanket that I want to use. Since I have fallen in love with making baby quilts, we have many to choose from, and, well, it’s nice to show off my handiwork to someone other than my family. I know that you can use your nursing cover as a blanket, but the problem I found was that the boning got in the way and then I also had to contend with the metal clips and the strap. latchOn® eliminates those problems. Just remove the strap from around your neck when you are finished feeding baby, wrap her up snug as a bug and you’re on your way!
latchOn® is made from stylish, high quality fabrics, and their unique, sterling silver plated flower clips that grip tightly without damaging the blanket. The minky fabric on the back is so soft on my neck, and the floral print is fun and goes well with our girly blankets. Functional and fashionable, latchOn is the essential accessory for any nursing mom. The clips are beauties in and of themselves. Tween has already declared that she is hijacking latchOn® after I am done nursing so she can use the fabric for a bookmark and the clips on a pretty clipboard. My ever-creative girl!
One of my friends was over on Thursday so I whipped out latchOn with my favorite orange fleece blanket (okay, so not ALL of our girly blankets go with this particular latchOn®, but if you NEED to match, they have lots of variety available for purchase. Technically, you could get a different latchOn® for each blanket IF you REALLY are that obsessive about matching – which I am not). She was SO impressed with the beauty and with the practicality of the *create-your-own* nursing blanket.
I love my latchOn® and take it everywhere. Oh, speaking of which, we are late for a birthday party; gotta run!
