I ordered (and paid for) a wrap which was never delivered. I got the e-mail runaround, never got a refund and their number is no longer in service.

It is the perfect combination of fasion and comfort. You’ve got to try these out! I actually used it this summer in California on the beach. It was the perfect weight and size to cover the front and back!

I LOVE it. I also preferred the simple edge, without any crafty stuff going on.

This IS a great product, but it is Busy Baby Wrap’s product which Obuba has quite blatantly and brazenly ripped off. I have a feeling the **** is going to hit the fan soon…

They took the wrap and had it reproduced. As a business owner myself it makes me sad when people plagarize and steal. Busy Baby is a much better product and comes in a lighter weight, more breathable fabric for warmer climates.

Nothing makes me happier than a little unsolicited parenting advice.

It is manipulative to say that people who nurse in public with a blanket AREN’T putting their kids first. Please stop propogating PAC’s. (That means passive aggressive comments for those of you that don’t know.)

Because like every mother’s nursing experience is unique, my experience has been the same with my baby. He wouldn’t nurse in public unless he was covered. It helped with distractions. I think it was in his best interest. Cover up or not, I still support nursing (and nursing in public).

Obuba is a good option if full coverage is important to you. I’ve tried it on and that it was especially soft and comfortable.

Nor can I imagine being so worried about other people’s opinions that I would impose such a thing on my beloved child. I know some babies will tolerate it, but does that mean it’s in their best interests?

I love this site, but I hate to see you propogating anti-nip culture (that’s Nurse In Public for those of you who don’t know). It’s 2007, Designmom. Get with it. The rest of you, dare to put your kids first.

(Crap, now I’m never going to win a giveaway!)

I always ended up using baby blankets (they WERE cozy, though). I found nursing shirts too uncomfortable – this poncho looks great!

But if you need one (and I guess that’s what really bugs me; that lots of times you do need one) these sure are pretty.

I think I want one even though I plan on weaning soon. It just looks comfy.
