Not all nursing covers are created equally. Poncho Baby’s nursing cover is the only patent-pending nursing cover design that provides intimate privacy from the outside world with its back and front coverage and allows the mom to see her baby while feeding at the same time. Made with premium eco-friendly, 100 percent muslin cotton in soothing colors that will calm the feeding baby, it is a must for a multi-tasking mom. Come check out this moms’ little savior nursing cover as well as other Poncho Baby products at the New York Baby Show coming up on May 14 and 15 at Pier 92!

For someone unfamiliar with Poncho Baby, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Poncho Baby is dedicated to creating products that are eco-friendly, stylish and multi-functional. We particularly want to support breastfeeding moms by providing privacy and comfort wherever they go, as well as designing products for families when they are out and about. Our award winning products are high quality, compact and easy to use. Product quality and customer support have been a very important part of the brand. Poncho Baby also partners with Baby2Baby that is an amazing nonprofit dedicated to proving low-income children with all the basic necessities that every family deserves.
What was the inspiration behind the company’s beginning? Was it a personal passion for you?
I was always in a quest to find my true passion while traveling around the world working in search marketing, finance and technology at Yahoo, Oracle and Citibank. After becoming a mom and breastfeeding my two girls, it inspired me to design and create products that allow other moms and dads to be comfortable while they were with their kids on-the-go. I felt there was a lack of breastfeeding products that allow moms to truly feel comfortable nursing their babies in public. Our award winning and patent-pending design for a nursing cover was a result of my quest. My design provides coverage all around, not just from the front, so moms can feel more secure. They can still easily look down to see their infant, for that all-important mom-to-baby eye contact.
My husband and I also travel a lot with our girls, and have since they were very little, and are always looking for easy, functional products. That is what inspired me to expand to our organic baby product collection with bandana bibs, baby blankets, washcloths and a compact diaper bag for baby essentials.
It has been exciting to leverage my social media and search marking experience while building a brand with a very close connection with our customers. I believe that it is very important to adapt to the market as it changes. Quality and value is key for the growing millennial generation. Poncho Baby is dedicated to creating high quality products.
What are the most popular and newest products from Poncho Baby?
Inspired by the Pantone color of the year, Rose Quartz, we have launched a new organic collection with a rose hued nursing cover and bandana bibs, featuring very chic color combos in pink/gray and pink/navy. We just launched product personalization to our collection, which is becoming a big hit. Moms love having their baby’s name on our super soft organic products.
What makes Poncho Baby unique and different from other companies?
Poncho Baby has been focused on providing eco-friendly products that are easy to use and are multipurpose. The company has a global focus in sourcing materials but leverages the quick turnaround and flexibility of the apparel manufacturing services available in the Los Angeles garment district. This enables us to sit down face to face to with pattern makers, cutters, and sewers to maximize the use of every yard of fabric. I hate to waste anything and want all our products to be able to be used in a myriad ways. Our products are also well known for being super soft and organic and can be personalized for mom or baby. Poncho Baby believes in giving back to the community by donating a portion of our sales proceeds to Baby2Baby.
What can parents expect to see from Poncho Baby at the New York Baby Show and in the future in general?
Look for an amazing collection of products for moms and babies, from nursing covers to bandana bibs, blankets, washcloths, with more products to come. We’re always in the quest for creating innovative easy-to-use products for busy families on-the-go. Keep an eye out as we expand our organic baby collection.
