Preparing For Baby with Bixby Basil Boppy Covers {Review}



When it comes to finding cute, unique baby items Etsy is the place to go! There are so many wonderful shops featuring adorable handmade items for your little ones. Today, I am excited to share one of those shops with you- Bixby Basil. Bixby Basil is a fun little shop featuring baby items like boppy covers, blankets, wash and burp clothes...not to mention lots of great non baby related items as well!



















For this review, Bixby Basil kindly sent me the Pink Lattice Baby Girl Boppy Cover.

First of all, let me start by saying that for us, our Boppy Pillow was one of the most used baby items we had for our son as a baby! When we weren't using it for nursing, he could often be found lounging in it and when he got a little older and was beginning to sit up, it was perfect for some added support. Needless to say, that beloved Boppy Pillow showed up in a TON of Shaun's baby pictures. For him, we just stuck with the cover that came with it- it was cute enough of course, but definitely got a little boring...and not at all unique! With baby #2, I knew that I wanted something a little more fun. After all, if it's going to be seen in picture after picture after picture...it might as well be cute, right? This is what drew me to Bixby Basil! Aside from the stunning Pink Lattice pattern we received, they also offer a HUGE variety of fun, unique styles for both boys and girl...from cute to trendy- there is something to match every style!



Seriously now, how absolutely adorable is this cover? I love the fun, modern look...still super girly, but not overly baby-ish. As I've said time and again, I am a huge fan of bright colors so this was absolutely perfect for our baby girl! But of course, it's not just all about the look...The quality was also wonderful! These covers are handmade and done so absolutely beautifully. They are made to fit the Bare Naked Boppy Pillow, and do so perfectly. If I didn't know otherwise, I'd have never guessed that it was created by an outside vendor. The covers have an overlapping envelope enclosure in the back, unlike the zipper closure that my Boppy brand cover has. To be honest, I was a little worried that this feature would make it difficult to change out with its smaller opening and the pillows odd shape. I will say it took perhaps a bit more effort than my other cover, but was not difficult in the least...so don't let the idea of stuffing your pillow scare you away! The unique prints are certainly worth the tiny bit of extra effort. I also personally found this type of enclosure to be much more visually appealing than the other!!

Overall, I absolutely LOVE our cover. In fact, I love it so much that I have a few others from the shop on my registry (after all, it's good to have extras should you need one washed...we all know babies are great at making messes!!). If you're looking for a cute cover for your Boppy and the ones they offer just aren't doing anything for you...Bixby Basil is the place to go!! And if you're not expecting or don't have a little one, Bixby Basil still has a ton of non-baby items to offer as well- pillow covers, washi tape, jewelry...truly, a little something for everyone!! And from now until June 30th, you can get 10% off your order with the code JUNE10!!

  6. I love the Edgar Allen Poe pillow, so I'd probably buy that. Or, I might let my mother choose since she has neck problems.
