MoBoleez- Modern nursing Bonnet! Review and Giveaway

 Has anyone seen these adorable hats? MoBoleez, Modern Bonnets for breastfeeding babies. I'm a huge fan of hats on Layla. She's not always the biggest fan, but she's a trooper! So when I heard that MoBoleez was a sponsor for The Big Latch On during world breastfeeding week, I was super excited to email them! Diane was a pleasure to talk to and sent a couple to donate to our local event. I was also given the opportunity to do a review on one myself! :-D

As I've mentioned before, I do consider myself skilled at latching on and off without exposing much of anything. You usually get more of a peep show if I'm fiddling around trying to cover up. I love this hat because of the EASE. Layla was already wearing the hat to keep the sun off her face while we played at the swan pond, so it was no hassle at all trying to get her to wear it in the moment.

The idea is to have the large brim of the hat cover your breast but not your baby! BINGO! This hat does just that. It's excellent for hot summer days when you don't want to fight with the cover. Bonus for compliments everywhere you go with MoBoleez hats, nursing or not we got tons of " I love her hat!" + "I wish they had those when I was nursing!"  

The hats come in 2 sizes.

  • 0-6 months- - this size fits a baby from birth to about 6 months. With a newborn, they'll have  room to grow.  Head circumference is 16 inches.
  • 6-12 months- this size fits a baby from about 6 months to 1 year old. Head circumference is 19 inches.
Also, 2 styles.. 

  • MoBoleez Classic hats are made of all-natural, super soft blend of cotton/bamboo fibres (60% cotton, 40% bamboo).
  • MoBoleez Couture Collection is offered in super soft, breathable 95% cotton, 5% spandex jersey knit - it is a nice solid weight, like a high fashion t-shirt material, double layered.
    I had the opportunity to feel out both styles (the one pictured above is a Couture.) The classic hat doesn't have quite as much stretch as the Couture & the brim has no give on the Classic. Both hats are made extremely well. I would highly recommend trying either or purchasing one as a shower gift for any Mother wishing to breastfeed!
