Peanut Shell Nursing Cover: Review & Giveaway

Yeah, you're right - this is not a picture of a nursing cover!
I learned about The Peanut Shell in January of 2010, when I had a very sick baby that was having a hard time keeping his body temperature regulated.  I knew that to help him stay warm, I would need to keep him close to myself, and remembered that a friend of mine had a fantastic fleece sling that seemed perfect for the job.  This is not the same brand that she uses, but I found a great deal, and used some gift money that had been sent for Crackers to buy it for him.

I live in Indiana.. it does NOT look like this in the winter in Indiana.  The Peanut Shell Carrier was perfect for the winter in Indiana and it's GREAT for summer in North Carolina.  We had a wonderful family trip and this sling got a lot of use with my 5 month old still.  In fact, my (almost) 2 year old also fit in it comfortably, though he rides on the side instead of the front. 
This is a stock photo from The Peanut Shell... I have never been blond... or that thin!
All of that is beside the point.  Because today I'm writing to review The Peanut Shell Nursing Cover!  The first truth you should know is that I have never used a nursing cover with my boys.  I used their "magic" blankets that Nana made for them, they're large enough to cover me fully and so I made that work.  The problem with the blanket is it's hot.  Not only is the blanket hot, but I can't see the baby while he's eating when he's under the blanket.

Here are some of my favorite features in this cute Dahlia print nursing cover:
Easy adjust strap with a snap for easy removal
Pacifier pockets on the underside of the cover, big enough for a paci or a cell phone... or whatever
Easy baby viewing! (Yep, that's a teddy bear)
The Peanut Shell Nursing Covers currently come in 11 fabric choices.  They are fantastically cute and I'm just sure there's a pattern for everyone!  They are easy to fold or roll and stash into a bag and go!  And, they are light-weight, so baby will not overheat. 

BUY IT:
You can purchase The Peanut Shell Nursing Covers on their website or in select stores (their store locator page is currently under construction) for $35.99 plus shipping.

WIN IT:
The Peanut Shell has offered to give one of my readers their choice of a nursing cover!
