How did this product make your life easier?

Francesca: This product was great as a sunshade. It makes it so easy to go out for walks when it’s hot and sunny and means my little boy could have a nap safely without me worrying about the temperature in his pram being too hot. It was also a great shield to keep out the wind. I also found it really good too use on high chair when out and about to protect from germs and also the same use in shopping trolleys but also gave him a little bit of comfort whilst we was shopping.

Ellen: This product allowed me to breastfeed my daughter discreetly with ease. I see myself as a confident breastfeeder, however, I do find at times, usually when I'm wearing a top that requires me to completely expose my breast to feed my daughter, that I still feel uncomfortable nursing. Cover Me provided me with the privacy I required to feed my daughter.

Nathan: A fantastic multi-purpose product that myself and my wife found easy to use. The fabric is ultra stretchy but retains a soft touch for your little one. With a daughter who has severe allergies, using the Cover Me Baby whilst out and about in public highchairs, which as most parents know aren't always cleaned properly, this provided us comfort that she could eat and her food not be contaminated from food previously sat on the high chair/high chair tray. The only downside is after a 1-year-old has had, played with, squirted their smoothie, the blanket needs a good wash before can be used again.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Rebecca: I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product to any breastfeeding mothers. It really does take the worry away whilst out and about knowing that you can feed your child easily and keep your modesty at the same time! It's very soft against the skin so you can be confident that your baby will also be comfortable. It's easy to fold up into your bag and take it with you wherever you go. It's also washable which is essential!

Amy: I would recommend this to fellow mums and friends as it has so many useful ways that it can be used, been so well thought about. I actually lent it to my friend whilst out as she has a newborn and forgot her breastfeeding cover she loved it so much she ordered one when she got home. I also like how it folds up and is so soft and stretchy.

Brigitta: As I have mentioned above, it is a multi-functional product. If you are breastfeeding, and you need a cover while you are out and about, it is perfect. I think there are many ways to use this specific product, thanks to its clever design. Even when the child is older, I am sure I will be able to find some usage for it. Covering his bike or him when he is painting, etc. It is easy to clean, small and easily can be transported, I love the colour of it, and there are plenty of designs to choose from, so everybody can find their favourite one.

Would you choose this product to win?

Hajra: I have not seen anything like this in the market so its definitely something I would happily have bought for my baby. There is nothing else that would eliminate the shade properly from the car seat or the pram when out and about, as the sunshade or umbrella can be fiddly and this is lightweight and easy to carry anywhere.

Brigitta: I haven't tried anything else like that before, so not sure what other products are out there, but I am perfectly happy with this one. I will just repeat myself but I write it down again, why I like this item. It makes my life a bit easier to keep things clean. It's very easy to clean as you can just put it to the wash. The design of it is amazing. It is definitely a winning product!

Amy: I found this much easier to use on a highchair to cover than using other products as it is so stretch, it fits any size and you don't have to worry about carrying clips, etc. This was especially good when trying to cover the pram when the little one was trying to sleep. It kept out so much light but still had the area for air to flow through.

What changes would you make to this product?

Francesca: If I could change one thing about the multi-use cover it would be to make this cover available in a few more colours and maybe a few more designs. Also,  it would be nice if they gave you a little storage bag/ pouch just so you can store it in changing bag. Also, it would be good if they gave you clearer instructions on how to use it for all the multi uses it has, as it did take me a few tries to figure it all out.

Ellen: The one thing I would change about Cover Me is that it is not suitable to be dried in the tumble dryer. This product is advertised as being able to use it as a hygienic cover for high chairs, however, using the cover-up in this way would inevitably get dirty requiring washing. Being a large family, finding the space to dry laundry is always an issue so any space I can save by putting items in the tumble dryer is a great help. Being able to tumble dry the cover me would mean faster drying, therefore I could use it again sooner.

Rebecca: Although the jersey material is light and reasonably breathable, I was using this product in a recent heatwave and it was very hot. I would suggest producing versions with thinner materials and also possibly thicker ones for the colder seasons. Then, you would cater to a wider audience. I would also maybe introduce sizes so that again you cater to all women of all shapes and sizes.
