Mother’s Day Wishes- KoalaKin Hands Free Nursing Support Giveaway

Vivian Muehlen’s personal experience as a breastfeeding mom led her to create the KoalaKin Hands Free Nursing Pouch.  Now supporting breastfeeding moms everywhere through their sponsorship of The Leaky Boob, KoalaKin is giving away one of their mom-designed supports for one lucky Leaky.  Read on to hear from Vivian about the inspiration behind KoalaKin and her Mother’s Day wish for all moms this year.

TLB:  What should TLB readers know about your company?

Vivian:  My goal is to help mothers breastfeed longer and not give up before they’re ready, by eliminating some of the strain some may experience associated with breastfeeding. I developed the KoalaKin so that moms could better enjoy this wonderful time in their lives.

 

TLB:  What was the inspiration behind the Koala-Kin?

Vivian:  When my second son was born, I realized that breastfeeding was a little more challenging than the first time around. Not only did my arms, neck and shoulder hurt from the long nursing sessions, I now had a toddler to take care of as well. The demands of a life with a toddler and the increasing pain on my arms and back took it’s toll on my milk supply and I had to start supplementing with formula. I tried nursing in slings and wraps, but I was never able to figure out how to do it properly. Sad and disappointed, I visited with lactation consultants who told me I was not alone. In fact, while 80% of moms nurse their newborns in the hospital, only 13% are still nursing after 6 months due to overall strain and exhaustion. She also told me that almost 30% of pregnant women suffer from carpal tunnel / tendonitis and that this condition is worsened through breastfeeding. Both of those statistics shocked me. That night, at home, I decided I was going to try to do something about it. So I joined forces with lactation consultants and physical therapists and the KoalaKin, Hands Free Nursing Pouch was born (pun intended!!)

Not a sling and not a carrier, the KoalaKin is a breastfeeding positioner that allows for easy, safe and comfortable hands free nursing. It consists of a vest that a mom puts on much like a back-pack and a pouch that attaches to the vest for the baby. Moms can nurse completely hands-free eliminating the strain on arms, shoulders and back. The pouch also distributes the baby’s weight across mom’s torso promoting a more ergonomic posture. Positioning the baby at the breast like the KoalaKin does, may dramatically improve the baby’s ability to latch on and stay latched.

While I openly admire those mamas that can comfortably nurse in a sling, not everyone can. I developed the KoalaKin for all other moms to be able to have the same experience. The KoalaKin also provides a few advantages over a sling:

  1. it is fully adjustable to accommodate for different mom and baby sizes
  2. you can switch nursing sides with just one click of the pouch
  3. if your baby falls asleep after nursing, a mom can unclick the entire pouch from the vest and lay the baby down without waking her up

 

TLB:  What was your favorite mother’s day present?

Vivian:  I love Mother’s Day as it falls very close to my birthday (on some years, it’s actually ON my birthday) so it’s always a big celebration! I love plants and flowers, so my husband usually leaves with all 4 kids for a couple of hours in the morning (giving me some very appreciated alone time) and comes back with gorgeous plants and flowers that each of the kids picked for me. I love hearing the stories of how they chose those particular plants! Then we all go for brunch at a place of my choice. It’s a yearly family ritual and it never gets old!

 

TLB:  What do you wish for all mothers this mother’s day?

Vivian:  As we all know, family holidays can be wrought with all the drama that sometimes comes from unfulfilled expectations. I hope we as mothers can embrace the imperfection of life and find peace and happiness even when things don’t go our way. I always tell myself: “life right now, is exactly as it should be”. This is my wish for all mothers this Mother’s Day: to find love and enjoyment in what is, live in the moment and let go of expectations of what life “should” be like.

 ______________________________

Vivian is giving away one KoalaKin Hands Free Nursing Pouch to one randomly selected entrant, a retail value of $89.  From the KoalaKin website:

The most important thing when considering the best way to nurse hands-free is adjustability. The combination of a mother’s breast size, torso length and the baby’s size and length all contribute to the challenge of finding the perfect hands-free nursing aid.

The KoalaKin® has 3 adjustable straps, to accommodate for different mom and baby sizes. Unlike a sling, the KoalaKin®’s patented shoulder clasps were designed specifically to help you switch the baby’s position without having to flip the pouch, therefore making it easy to move the baby from side to side.

The KoalaKin®’s ergonomic back support straps also help eliminate shoulder, back and arm pain by evenly distributing your baby’s weight and fully supporting your little one while nursing. Our product is made with 100% breathable cotton canvas and 100% soft & cuddly cotton fabrics for your baby’s maximum security and comfort.

Currently Leakies can find the KoalaKin at koalakin.com.

  1. Dagny's Mom says:

    This looks so handy! I’d love one in black!

  2. Angela Anderson says:

    I think this koalakin is such a great idea! Wish I would have had one with my first… Hopefully will with my second. 🙂

  3. Kristin F says:

    I would pick black – discreet and goes with everything! This would be great for my second daughter, due in August.

  4. Danelle says:

    This looks like such a help! I would choose the chocolate brown!

  5. Krystal says:

    What a FANTASTIC idea! I have developed tendonitis in my shoulder since my youngest (4 months) was born and it’s extremely painful some days.

  6. What a great idea! I am one of the lucky ones who has been able to nurse in any wrap, but this is such a great idea. As a La Leche Leader I’d I’ve to share this product with the moms I help everyday.

  7. Krystal says:

    Black = )

  8. Cindy Fisher says:

    Wow, this is an awesome idea. I have four kids and with my youngest being six weeks,I can see how much easier it would be nursing in this. I’ve tried to master the sling but I’ve realized that my kids have to be a certain age before I can nurse hands free. Great idea would love to have one.

  9. Vanessa O says:

    Black please!

  10. ashley v says:

    That is such a great idea! I am a very thin woman, and most carriers don’t adjust enough to be comfortable for me. It would be great if this one adjusts enough to accommodate those of us who are naturally very small and always get left out.

  11. Oh wow, this would be awesome!!! With four kids, ages 10 down to 4 weeks, winning this would sure make my life a little easier! 🙂

  12. Oh, and I would probably choose black. 🙂

  13. It looks great. I would love to try to use it. Hands free are essential for new mom:)

  14. I would choose the black! I have had my eye on these after attempting to nurse in our other carriers and failing miserably.

  15. I’d go with black..I’m not a brown person..

  16. Heather says:

    This is such a wonderful idea! I wish I would have heard about it before! I have never been able to nurse my son in a sling or carrier. This pouch sounds like it would work very well and I would love to try it!!

  17. Heather says:

    Oh and I would pick black! 🙂

  18. Justine Tejeda says:

    This is an amazing giveaway! I currently have a 2 mo nursling and thbis would be perfect for those trips out since I still haven’t mastered nip. I love the black!

  19. kayla k says:

    I would love one two nurse my two month old.. would really be useful since I also have a 20 month old. I would pick black.

  20. Tara Crifero says:

    I have 5 little ones and with my youngest being just 4 weeks, this would be a life saver. I had tried breast feeding all my children, but could never sock with it due to lack of support, however, with this little one being my last I refuse to give up. I have an amazing breast feeding buddy who has helped me stick with it. I am feeding on demand which is proving to be extremely difficult with 4 other children who are all fighting for my attention. This sling would be a life saver. I have tried many slings and wraps but o have not found the one that works for us. I would enjoy this product so much, and it would helpe divide my time.

  21. Tara Crifero says:

    Color is not important to me 🙂 Goodluck to all!

  22. I’m not sure how well this works for older babies, but I’d chose black. (I think I feed my 6 mth old standing up a lot more now than I used to when she was tiny.)

  23. That is the best idea EVER! I would love it in brown……

  24. Looks like a great idea!!

  25. Kellsey Galart says:

    Black This is so AWESOME!

  26. Michelle says:

    I’d be happy with any color. But if I had to choose it would be the brown since it matches my diaper bag.

  27. This looks so convenient and easy! I’d love to win the chocolate one!

  28. I would love to have one of these in black!!! what a great idea 🙂

  29. I really want to try this!! It would be SO amazingly handy! I would choose the black one for myself.

  30. Miranda Welle says:

    The black/tan!

  31. My DD is 10mos old and still nursing, but this would still help me out a lot since I’ve got a 3yr old and two foster babies!! I’d love it in black!! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  32. Ashley Brooks says:

    This would seem to make life easier with new little one while chasing around our 2 yr old! 🙂 I’d love one in Black!

  33. At first I thought, why do I need this when I have a sling? but upon further inspection I need one in black!

  34. Katelyn says:

  46. Lisa Haines says:

    This is awesome…would also love this for NIP

  47. This looks awesome! I am just finishing breastfeeding my second child( but first to be breathed) and We are pregnant with our third. Having one of these would’ve been nice this last time and definitely makes me want it now for this time!

  48. Jennifer says:

    I would pick black – matches everything!

  49. Brandie says:

    There are days I feel like all I can do is nurse my son.. This would be so handy! Walking around and nursing isn’t always ideal, but the KoalaKin would be a lifesaver!

  50. I’d choose the chocolate brown 🙂

  51. jessica F says:

    i would defined pick brown, these are such a good idea!!

  52. Kristen D says:

    Definitely would chose black as well.

  59. I tried write a comment, but I couldn’t figure out how to type anything in the “Leave a comment!” space.
    We’re expecting twins this fall, and this would be fantastic!!! We’ll have 5 kids under 4 and I would love to be able to nurse the twins as much as possible. I think the KoalaKin would make it easier to do so! I would love the black or the brown!

  60. I also need one in black! Thanks!

  61. tiffany decker says:

    I looove the brown on. Hope I win!

  62. Kristin says:

    I’d love to win a black one!

  63. Neato!

  64. Currently expecting my 3rd in a few weeks and with an almost 2 year old and a 4 year old, and it being the summer, I know I am going to NEED to figure out hands free nursing! I could do it when each was older (about 6 months) in the ergo, but never figured it out from the get go right away with a newborn. I am just imagining myself at the park with the 3 kids and the 2 year old getting into things she shouldn’t and sitting on a bench nursing, so this would be fantastic to have! I’d go with the brown version 🙂

  65. Sharlaina Bugg says:

    These look so cool! I could really use one for baby number 2 due in August! I like the brown colored one too 🙂

  66. Aryianda says:

    Looks like a neat idea

  67. Alexandra says:

    This is just perfect! I would pick the chocolate brown one.

  68. Angie V says:

    Love this! Bfing was my favorite times of the day but when you feed on demand somedays it seems like that’s all you get done. I should be able to multi-task better when #2 comes! Black goes with everything 😉

  69. Brittany Wilkens says:

    I would absolutly love this in the black!!!

  70. I’d love to win one of these! I would choose black if I won, mainly because black goes with everything! 🙂 Thank you for the chance!

  71. Allison says:

    This looks so neat, great idea!

  72. Julianne Perry says:

    I LOVE the chocolate brown!! I’m due in 3-4 weeks and nursed my first for 13 months, I’d love to go longer for my second!!

  73. Stephanie says:

    This looks amazing!!!

  74. This looks really useful! I never managed to nurse my baby in a carrier or sling. Not planning for another baby yet, but could share with my prego sisters until then. I think black or brown are nice.

  75. Black would be awesome! 🙂

  76. Marcella says:

    I’d love to try the black one! My shoulders are always so sore due to a baby who likes to nurse for comfort (which I’m happy to provide) but it’s so time consuming!

  77. Erica R. says:

    I’m do with my first in July and I would totally love one of these in black. 🙂

  78. Michelle Hall says:

    This looks awesome, would love to win it 😀

  79. This would be a wonderful gift to a nursing (or soon to be nursing) momma…of which I know many 🙂

    I think the black one would be best!

  80. Kira R. says:

    This would be amazing to have! With a 2 year old and a 5 year old running around, hands-free nursing would come in handy sometimes!

  81. How cool!!! This is a way cool idea… could totally use it ALL THE TIME!! I would love one in black/tan 🙂

  82. Desiree says:

    black would be great wish they had this 4 years ago for my oldest daughter

  83. What an awesome idea!

  84. stephanie says:

  87. Gizella DiVenere says:

    I love this idea, sometimes my arms seriously cramp from the position!!

  88. I would love one in…well any color honestly! Hard to choose!

  89. Sarah p says:

    Wow! Nursing makes my neck and shoulders so sore. This is a great idea and would help so much

  90. Gizella DiVenere says:

    I forgot to include, I’d like the black one!

  91. Nicole K. says:

    What an amazing idea!!! I would love one in black. My son is 3 1/2 months and likes to constantly be close to me whether he is nursing or not. I currently work from home and typing with one hand is just not working for me, he occupies my other one, it takes me so much longer to be able to do my work. ( I am currently typing with one hand now) LOL!!!

  92. Ellen Finerd says:

    This would be so wonderful! I have tendinitis in my shoulder from my years of factory work and it makes it painful to nurse my little one!! This would help so much!! I would choose the black one!

  93. Alexandra says:

    This is perfect! I would choose the chocolate brown one! 🙂

  94. Jessica Eichhorn says:

    I would love one of these to try eith my little boy! I’m a stay at home mom with low vision and this I think would make feeding a lot easier!

  95. Rebekah says:

    I’d pick black. This would be fabulous, as I’m out often which makes feedings tricky, but I can’t afford to buy one. 🙁

  96. I need this! OH WOW! What a genius idea!

  97. Sarah p says:

    Forgot to say I would prefer black.

  103. jessica cavalcante says:

    I would love this. I want black!

  104. Sarah Steffens says:

  110. rosa krattli says:

    Wow, this looks cool. She’s very right abou nursing a second baby while taking care of a toddler being difficult. I would love to try this for the next baby. I’d pick black if I won.

  111. Rebecca says:

    Black please… regardless of the contest I gotta gotta have this!!!! EEK!! Love love love!!

  112. Elizabeth says:

    What a fabulous idea! I would choose the brown 🙂

  113. Rebecca says:

    What a fabulous idea! My neck would be so appreciative of the relief!

  114. Nicole Milne says:

    This is truly an ingenious idea. I have a 7wk old that is a slow nurser & I also care for a now 8wk old during the work week. Its quite challenging trying to manage when they both need to eat at the very same time. This nursing sling would be such a GREAT help! (in either color, I’m not picky when it comes to practicality, just grateful someone has come up with such a wonderful product)
    Thanks for the opportunity!!! And good luck to all.

  115. Silvia S. says:

    Wow, it is super cool. I admire the group of women that come up with such great products. Brown is my favorite color.

  116. Rachael says:

    This would rock my world EVERY SINGLE DAY! I’m always ending up trapped under a sleeping snuggly baby after nursing, & this would help SO MUCH!! I’d love a black one!

  117. What a super practical design! This would be great for at home or on the go!

  118. I’d choose the black, it would go with everything! 🙂

  119. This is so AWESOME! This would have been so handy when my daughter was smaller! I’d love one to use with my second baby!!

  127. This is great. I’d probably pick the brown one!

  128. Melissa Meltzer says:

    This is an AMAZING invention! I heard about it a few months ago from a friend and it would be perfect my little one to nurse, especially when I start going back to school (being able to nurse hands free will extend my nursing!) The black would be great, but any color I would be more than happy with. Thank you so much for posting these amazing giveaways and advice 🙂

  129. I would love to win!!! : )

  167. Desirae L says:

    I’ve had black slings and baby carriers before and have always felt that outside on a hot day the black just makes the baby more hot so I prefer any other color. I have nursed 5 daughters so far, #5 is 9 months old and still nursing. #6 will be born in July and I’ll be nursing him as well of course. I do have “dimensional issues” (lol) so have struggled over the years to find convenient nursing techniques and I think this would be of great use to me!

  168. I have tendinitis in my wrist from breastfeeding. I would love to try one… in black 🙂

  169. Kasandra says:

    This is such an awesome idea! 🙂 I’d choose black. 🙂

  170. Amanda Yonnie says:

    I could totally use either color while finishing my bachelor’s degree online!

  171. Ehlane says:

    I love the chocolate brown one! Hope to be able to use one of these for my next nursling. 🙂

  172. I’d definitely like one of these!! I’m large chested and would love to nurse in a carrier and have often wondered if I’m too big for any of the traditional ones. Also, I have a 2 1/2 year old…LOL 🙂

  173. Marita says:

    The idea of this is genius, as I sit here at work using one hand to type and write and hold the nursing baby to me with the other. I would like a black one

  174. Nicole O'Hare says:

    I would love one for baby boy number 2 due in July!!

  175. Mari-Kristin Gilbert says:

    I would love a black one! This is such a fantastic idea and as a FTM with a newborn I feel like all I do all day is nurse, so it would be great to have some hands free freedom!!

  176. I would pick the brown one, I love how earthy it is

  177. I would pick the brown one, I love how earthy it is

  182. Heather says:

    Would love to win one of these in black for my little one thats due in October! 🙂

  183. I’d go with black, and I REALLY want one of these! Breastfeeding my first was very difficult (he was a preemie and had poor suck and we ended up having to just give him bottles of pumped milk and then eventually supplemented with formula). I have another baby due this fall (my first won’t even be 2 yet!) and anything that could make it easier to try for a better breastfeeding experience while dealing with a toddler would be AMAZING!

  184. Miss Chris W. says:

    I would pick black!

  185. Rachel C says:

    I had no idea something like this existed! I would probably go with the black.

    I have a 2 year old who I spend my days chasing around. My arms and back constantly hurt from carrying a nursling in one arm and chasing my boy all over the house! This would make my life so much easier!

  186. Breeana says:

    What an awesome product. I would love one in black.

  187. Guinevere says:

    I would want it in black! Both my 11 week old and his 21 no old sister would love for mommy to be able to nurse hands free!

  188. Sandra says:

    This would be great, so I can easily feed while playing with my toddler.

  189. Angel T says:

    Wow, what a great idea!

  190. Ann G-B says:

    I would love the tan and black!

  191. Wow, this looks great for breastfeeding! I had such bad wrist sprain when my son was a newborn…. one of these would help with the next baby! I would choose black.

  192. Lynn Boles says:

    Looks like a great idea. Baby wearing + breastfeeding = love

  193. Kimber G says:

    I would love a black one. With a two year old, hands-free sounds awesome!

  194. Beckie W. says:

    This looks so great! It would make evenings with my big kids while my little one just wants to nursenursenurse so much easier! The black is so very fashionable but I’m partial to earthiness of the brown one… 🙂

  195. Brittney L says:

    I love the idea of these!!! Black would be the color i would choose!

  196. Antoinette says:

    I’m such a dope, couldn’t work out why my comment wouldn’t post, I didn’t even SEE the security question that says “IMPORTANT! To be able to proceed, you need to solve the following simple math (so we know that you are a human) :-)”
    Anywho, now baby-brain moment passed, I’d love the black one. If these take off, I’d love to see them done in nice patterns in the future.

  197. Marissa says:

    Lokks very comfy! Id go with black

  198. I would love to have one of these! I have a nursling and her two older brothers running around so anything that makes my life a little easier is always welcome!

  199. Katherine C says:

    Love this idea SO much, I had no idea there was such a thing! I’d get the black & tan for sure!

  200. I think I would like the brown

  201. I would love to have one of these to try out! In chocolate brown 🙂

  202. This would be a blessing in my home, with two kids under three, and a husband in the army. I would like a light color, like tan.

  203. Gaby Austin says:

    My friend is having a medically nessecary c section, if I win I plan to give this to her, it will be tons of help with keeping the nursing baby away from the incision area.

  204. Randi K says:

    Planning on a new baby soon. No harm in stockpiling new baby gear 😉

  205. Erica Collazo says:

    This is so neat, I would so love one of these. <3

  206. I’d pick the black one!

  207. hannah says:

    what a fantastic idea! i think i would use the black one all the time – especially with a busy toddler and a nursing newborn!

  208. I want one! This would be so helpful. I’ve never tried nursing while baby wearing before.

  209. Justine says:

    I like the black and tan ones…

  210. Kristen L says:

    I would live this in brown! I am nursing my third baby and I think it would be a great addition to my baby equipment to help free my hands!

  211. Wow the KoalaKin looks pretty awesome. I’d love one in brown!

  212. Erin T. says:

    BEST.IDEA.EVER.
    I have a 3-week old who eats all the time. This would be an excellent item to have.
    Black is an ideal color also.
    LOVE!

  213. Amy Cunliffe says:

    Oooo never seen one of these before they look the business! 😀

  214. Stephanie says:

    I would pick the brown one! My LO would love this, she can eat all day (her favorite passtime) and Mom and can get work done or read a book!

  215. This is so neat!

  216. Aphelia says:

    This would be so great to have! My 2 month old cluster feeds so Im pretty much carrying her all throughout the day and it would be awesome to have my hands free for a change!

    I would pick the black one =)

  217. jennifer says:

    Awesome!

  218. Amy Cunliffe says:

    Oooo cool looks the dogs wotsy whens heehee! 😀

  219. Heidi Daily says:

    I would choose black/tan

  220. Meagan Mohr says:

    I’d pick brown! Would love this, looks like it makes nursing so much easier!

  221. Lynsey Bowes says:

    Lovely little item i lik-ee 😛

  222. I couldn’t get the widget to let me comment but I would love to have one of these in brown!!!

  223. Ashley says:

    What a great idea and lifesaver! I like the black one.

  224. This looks like a game changer! I’d go for brown but would be just as happy with black. Pick me, pick me!

  225. Jenean says:

    I could really use this,my baby boy is always nursing and always wanted to be carried this would be amazing and what’s funny is he hooks to me like a koala we always call him that 🙂

  226. Kateri Milan says:

    this would be a dream!! so glad someone finally put something like this together, I would love a light coloured one…maybe beige.

  227. Andrea Montoya says:

    What a handy idea! I’d love one in black! 🙂

  228. Nicole C says:

    I’d choose black. Very cool product that would be so useful for baby # 2 due in June. I can nurse while I chase my 2 year old around at the same time!

  229. Francesca McCaffrey says:

    This is so wonderful! I’m a first time mom due in August and really excited about nursing…they say that you shouldn’t have too many expectations for motherhood because anything can happen, but this is one issue I am so dedicated to. I want to set myself up for success! Any color would be amazing 🙂

  230. Lori Taff says:

    I would love a KoalaKin in black and XS/s size. I have always struggled with finding a sling that fits well. I am a very tiny and petit woman. It seems like other companies do not accommodate women that a 5’0” and less then 100lbs. This looks like a wonderful product. I’m sure it would make baby #3 due in Sept. very happy. Oh and it would make mommy very happy too.

  231. Cyndi R. says:

    This looks great! I could really use this with one on the way and a busy toddler that will want me to do things with him after his sibling arrives! I’d love one in black!

  232. Marie E says:

    Love this idea. I was actually looking up videos last week about how to breastfeed using a sling since this will be my second and I’m sure I’ll be running around a lot more.
    I’d love one in black 🙂

  233. Stephanie says:

    This would be such a help to me! I would love a brown one!

  234. Danielle says:

    That looks so handy and cool for outings and with a toddler running around

  235. Niki Holsinger says:

    I would love one in brown!! My husband is deploying for a year and my 3 kids and I are moving back to our hometown while he is gone. I am dreading the long flight from Hawaii to PA with my 4 month old. This would make nursing him so much easier!! I SO hope I win!!

  236. Scarlett says:

    What a fabulous idea! Would be wonderful for my 7 month old and I. Then he could nurse almost 24 hours a day! Wouldn’t he be happy as a lark? LOL! BTW, I would go with the black one. 🙂

  237. What a great idea!

  238. I would choose black

  239. This would be AWESOME to have!! I am forever trying to get office work done or my business with the little monster trying to tap at the computer keys or just generally wanting attention (when she is supposed to be napping ;s).

  240. Amanda says:

    I would love black!

  241. Tabatha demogola says:

    I would love to get one of these in black! I had no idea something like this was even possible! 🙂

  242. I would love to win one! I am currently 14 weeks pregnant and nursing my 9 month old so being able to nurse hands free would be a huge help!

  243. Garson says:

    I would like a black one. I have exclusively pumped with one child, nursed one until 12 months and I am currently nursing my third child and she is 4 months. I would love to win your product!!!

  244. Sarah Haman says:

    This would be a godsend. I have literally spent the past five months in a recliner, and have spent money on so many “solutions” that didn’t work. Black is slimming, right? 😉

  245. Melissa Allen says:

    Awesome idea! I’d choose black. I’d love this for my 4 week old.

  246. Cara Peacey says:

    I would pick the black one! 🙂

  247. Heather says:

    Black. With number 4 on the way I’ll need a free hand sometimes!

  248. Shannon Brazee says:

    Would love the black one!

  249. Amanda Lalonde says:

    I would choose the chocolate brown pouch… This is such a nifty idea!

  250. Christine says:

    This looks amazing, would have to choose the chocolate brown!!

  251. Liz Libby says:

    Would LOVE one of these so I can nurse the baby and chase the twins at the same time!

  252. I’d love one in black! This would definitely be so convenient

  253. Would love one – she’s asleep post nursing. Any color.

  254. Christa Mattatall says:

    wow this is awesome it wouldve been great to have with my other 2 kids but i could sure use it now for my 3rd I’d def pic brown 🙂

  255. Kori Penkert says:

    I am so one of those moms that never got how to feed in a sling or wrap carrier. I would love to try this with my new baby coming since I will be chasing a 3 year old as well.

  256. hannah b says:

    I think I would choose the black one. Such a great design for moms with toddlers!

  257. Jessica says:

    I would want brown. This is such a genius idea. I know a lot of mommies who have toddlers as well as infants will appreciate this. 🙂

  258. Katy W. says:

    This would be a lifesaver! I’d love one in black.

  259. Lindsay Thomas says:

    I would pick Black

  262. Lyndsay says:

    This is awesome. I would choose black.

  263. Tara Glass says:

    Amazing product!!! Would love one in black

  264. I would love the black one,thank you.

  265. Amanda says:

    How neat! I’d take one in black! 🙂

  266. Jenna S says:

    This is AWESOME! love it!

  267. Alicia says:

    the black! won’t show spit up as much 🙂

  268. Alana Kornik says:

    This is FANTASTIC!!!!! The black one would go with more outfits but either would be an AMAZING prize

  269. Suzanne Terry says:

    LOVE this! Would seriously love one in brown — would be such a problem-solver!

  270. Samantha says:

    I could really use this!!! This would make taking care of my 4 month old while keeping up with my 5 year old (and the endless things to do around the house that both generate) so much easier!!

  271. Keri R says:

    I’d choose chocolate brown! Everything that is chocolate is good. 🙂

  272. Christi says:

    Awesome! Chocolate brown looks wonderful!

  273. Heather Budler-Ronzoni says:

    Have I just died and gone to Heaven? Am I dreaming? Why have I not seen this before?! It’s like a dream come true! I must have this…gimme gimme gimme!

  274. Elizabeth says:

    This was my dream! So cool!

  275. definitely black

  276. vanessa says:

    How ingenious! It looks like a lifesaver! I would love the purple color!

  277. Lesley Legakis says:

    Chocolate Brown will be perfect for my next nursling. Hooray!

  278. Jeannie Swanson says:

    This is such a great idea!!!

  279. Amy Phillips says:

    This is great! It’d make nip more doable. 🙂

  280. Blossom says:

    I would have loved this for my first one! But would definitely like it for #2. 🙂 I would love one in brown.

  281. I love this, its such a great idea! I like the black one.

  282. My wife would love the brown one! 🙂

  283. jeannette weinbrenner says:

    I would love to win this for my friend who just had her first baby. Ive been really trying to be supportive of her breastfeeding jourey:-) she would prob like the black one

  284. Krista Silva says:

    What a great innovative product for breatfeeders. My baby is a “grazer” at breastfeeding and hangs out all day on the boob. This would be great so I can multitask my other little one and still nurse her as long as she wants. Right now it is way out of my budget, so it would be terrific to win one. What a great giveaway!

  285. Awesome idea, would love to have one!

  286. This is an amazing product, I would love brown!

  287. This looks awesome! I think the brown would be great!

  288. Such a fab concept. I struggle with back and arm ache as I have a long torso so I either have to have a mountain of cushions or hold baby up with only my arms for support.

  289. Chocolate brown for me!

  290. jackie says:

    What an amazing product. I would love one in chocolate brown.

  291. I love this! I have larger breast and I have to support them while feeding my son, not to mention my nipples are also inverted so I have to use my other hand to make my areola into a shape he can latch on to, that doesn’t really leave room for me to support him well like I want to. and forget trying to walk while feeding him! I love the brown color its nice and earthy toned and would go well with all my clothes =D

  292. I’ve been eyeing this for weeks now … it would make life oh so much easier!!

  293. Such an innovative idea! I’d love the chocolate brown.

  294. Amanda C. says:

    I wouldn’t even care what color it was! The idea of hands free nursing is too good to be true! I could never nurse in a sling but that looks do-able. What a fabulous idea!

  295. joeann gibbons says:

    wonder how it would work for a plus size mom
    love to get one though

  296. I love the brown color! Hand free nursing with 4 babes – the only way to do it! 🙂

  297. I’d choose black! What a great idea, my toddler would love if I had more hands-free time!

  298. amy lee rife says:

    Definitely the brown

  299. I would choose black.

  300. Crystal says:

    I would love one in black!

  301. Wow, I’m pregnant for the second time and have spent a bit of time wondering about how to juggle feeding with a toddler and just me at home – this looks perfect! I’d go with black probably.

  302. This ould give me more time with my son, when our daughter arrives in August. Black would be nice. Thanks!

  303. Kristy says:

    Looks like a pretty neat product!

  304. I’m due with my second, and had some serious concerns about how nursing would work with a four year old running around. I really really really want one of these!

  305. I would pick the black one! I love this idea and definitely wish I would have had one with my first child.

  306. kayla k says:

    Black!

  307. Brown! I would give this to my friend with a newborn!

  308. Mayla Moore says:

    I would choose the Chocolate Brown one. Thanks!

  309. Maureen M says:

    This is great! I totally want one of these!!!! I would love a black one! 🙂

  310. Kira R. says:

    I prefer the black one.

  311. Christina Parker says:

    I would love this in black!

  312. I need this! I’m 7 months pregnant w/ my 2nd child, and am hoping I’ll be able to breastfeed him (the 1st refused to latch). This would definitely come in handy! Thanks for sharing!

  313. Heather says:

    I have wanted one of these since I first saw them! It’s such a great idea!! I would love the one in black 🙂

  314. tiffany says:

    I would pick chocolate brown

  315. kelly miller says:

    i have been eying this since my last pregnancy! I would LOVE one in chocolate brown! 🙂 thanks in advance;)

  316. I love the black one. I need this to take care of my 5 year old while still nursing my baby.

  317. Danielle says:

    Since black goes with everything…. Black 🙂

  318. I would pick the brown

  319. This looks amazing! I would love a black one!

  320. Krystle R. says:

    I love this I wish I would have had one with my older kids I think the baby would love it.

  321. Melanie Smith says:

    I would love a black one!

  322. Kristine F says:

    Chocolate brown

  323. Britney says:

    I would love one in black/tan to match my Ergo! 🙂 This looks like such a fantastic product. I might have to get one even if I don’t win!!

  324. luna laplant says:

    i would love one !

  325. I really want one of these for my second. I have a two year old daughter that I spend most of the day playing, painting, baking and creating with and it would help in the transition. I am thinking I would get the brown but can’t quite decide.

  326. Jessica Poulsen says:

    Black/Tan!

  327. I would love one in black!

  328. Sarah Aguirre says:

    I would love one in any color!! Number 2 on the way, and we don’t know what it is yet. 🙂

  329. Ashley Ratzlaff says:

    I would love one! That looks so helpful!

  330. Ashley Ratzlaff says:

    Oh I would choose black!

  331. Hilary says:

    I’d go for classic black. I’m a New Yorker.

  332. Anna-Lee says:

    This looks so nifty! I’d love to get my hands on the chocolate brown one.

  333. I’d choose Chocolate Brown if I won 🙂

  334. Angie Martinez says:

    Looks very useful, I’d love to try it and I’d pick black.

  335. Sunny McClurg says:

    Cute! I like the brown one…

  336. Jenna Parsons says:

    Neat! I would choose the black one!

  337. Rikki Emanuel says:

    I NEED this in brown!!!

  338. Cindy B says:

    I would choose the chocolate brown ~ thanks for another great giveaway.

  339. Valarie says:

    I would have to say black. I can use it for all my future babies no matter the sex.

  340. Despite loving my ring sling to soothe and put my son to sleep, I don’t think he looks very comfortable whenever I try to feed him in it. And I don’t feel safe when he falls asleep in the cradle hold, because I’m afraid he isn’t getting enough air. I love the black koalakin and hope to try it!

  341. Desiree T says:

    This is such an awesome idea!! I have a Moby wrap that barely was used since the purpose I had it was for hands free nursing, which failed. This is my third pregnancy, and I have 2 toddlers. This would be such a great thing with my busy life.

  342. Becky H says:

    I “wear” my 4 mo old all of the time, but my wraps & MT aren’t really condusive to nursing while sitting at my desk or playing around on the internet. lol. This looks like a great solution for that! I would love one in brown!

  343. Rachel DeHart says:

    I’d love to have a black one

  344. Rachel DeHart says:

    I’d like to win a black one

  345. Caitlin Smith says:

    I would love this in black! I would us it multiple times a day! What a fabulous product!

  346. Ooh. I’d take chocolate brown – and keep it for another baby of mine or ‘lend’ it to a pregnant friend of mine. 🙂

  347. I would probably get brown. I’m lucky, I figured out nursing with my Moby wrap (well one side anyway)

  348. I like the black one, this seems like a great investment.

  349. I like the black one.

  350. Kathleen Lester says:

    What a neat idea. I like black!

  351. Julie Rauch says:

    Looks great! I would chose one in black.

  352. Amanda Iden Howell says:

    I like the chocolate brown the best! Both of my kids have been very long nursers, 2-3 hours per session to be precise. How nice this would be!!!

  353. Melissa says:

    I like black! Great concept!

  354. Addison Kat says:

    I’d get it in black

  355. Amy Cunliffe says:

    Dont know whether ive aready commented (baby brain at its best lol) but commenting just incase i didnt as dont want to miss out on this fab comp, this would be a godsend when feeding in public…it never used to be an issue and we could be so discreet but now my LO is gettng older hes getting more curious and is always coming off the boob and flashing me to everyone because hes so sooo nosey hahaaaaa 😀

  356. Whitney says:

    I love this!!

  357. Jessica says:

    My little girl is a comfort nurser and this would make getting some basic household tasks done MUCH easier. It never fails that she wants to nurse right when her daddy gets home, which always prevents me from cooking dinner. With this, I’d have no excuses and DH would love that! haha I love the brown one!

  358. Jessica says:

    I love this! I’d go with black

  359. Kerri Basista says:

    Would love the chocolate brown one! I have a 6mo nursling and a 19mo so the more I can be hands free, the better!

  360. Jessica Bailey says:

    I believe I like the chocolate!

  361. Neat concept! I want one now 🙂 Maybe then I could get more done in my new house! 🙂

  362. Chocolate brown

  363. Sarah Fuhrmann says:

    Black

  364. I want the black one!

  365. Katelynn Chaisson says:

    I’d love one in black or any colour for that matter

  366. Nichole S says:

    I love the brown!

  367. Black and tan please!

  368. I would love the chocolate brown one! Such a great idea, I’ve always had a hard time getting my kids just right to nurse in a sling/wrap.

  369. I need this! Black

  370. Jennifer says:

    I like any color. What a great idea! I wish I saw this even sooner!

  371. I think I’d like the chocolate brown better.

  372. I’d love one in black!
