Bebe au Lait review and giveaway
Bebe au Lait first came about when founder, Claire Ekelund gave birth to her second daughter in 2003. Clair had found that most nursing covers were clinical, impractical, and difficult to find. I nursed Taylor and at that time hadn't known about nursing covers so I completely understand Claire's frustration. Originally the company was called Hooter Hiders but has since adopted a more chic name to match with all the wonderful prints they carry.
As a mom of a now almost 3 year old toddler I was sent the toddler hooded towel in my choice of print to review. I am in love with all the fun prints Bebe au Lait carries and after much thought I finally ended up choosing the hotdots pattern. Its cute and fun! This uber soft terry cloth towel has gotten even softer after being washed. Its the perfect thing to wrap Tay in after her bath. One of the best features on this towel are the hidden magnets that keep the hood of the towel secure around Taylor. As soon as I have the towel wrapped around my little monkey she's telling me to "button me mommy!". I think she must feel like superwoman or something the way she runs around with that thing on. Another fab feature is is a sewn in spot on both sides for your toddlers arms to rest. It ensures your little one to be extra snug after a bath. So not only will they be extra chic in their Bebe au Lait towel but they will be warm and snugly as well. A perfect combo! Since these towels do come in toddler and baby size I think its a perfect gift for a new mom to be.
Bebe au Lait not only carries hooter hiders and bath towels. There are also quite a few other great products which are all available in the amazing prints I mentioned earlier. There are burp clothes, bibs, jewelry, gift sets, simple organics and nursing covers. I am sooo excited for the day when Bobby and I have another little one. I plan on nursing again and I think that having a Hooter Hider will be essential when we are out and about. At least I know I'll be sporting the chicest prints in town!
Bebe au Lait has offered one lucky reader a chance to win either a baby or toddler hooded towel in their choice of print.
