I received Itzy Ritzy’s Nursing Happens Infinity Nursing Scarf in my Bluum box last month. As I said on that entry, the product, especially when compared to the one on the photo of the package in gray and white, resembles greatly one I’d put on my Amazon baby registry in black and white. Still, I’d received one that was much more colorful as you can see below, including a pattern with black, white, gray and hot pink in it.
The scarf is billed as the next big thing in nursing, and it does show many ways in which the scarf can be worn as a fashion accessory, to cover up oneself and/or ones baby or both at the same time.
The scarf is very thick, which allows it to be used in many ways as the package shows.
Though I wasn’t sure if I wanted to include the colors in my review criteria, there is really no way for me to not do it. This especially when expanded out shows how many colors there are, and there are just too many in different shades to make this a practical item to wear daily or to wear with many outfits if the goal is to match or complement the outfit. The scarf shown in the package, or even one that was black white and gray would have been a lot more versatile fashion wise. This is not to say that I don’t like pink, it’s a beautiful color which I do wear, but only from time to time, for example, this color is not in any piece of clothing I have to wear to work.
The scarf is also when extended out very long. This is probably in part to make it a one size fits all. As a petite woman, it extends down past my waist, which makes it unlikely I would wear it without folding it in some way, though when looped at least twice there are a few ways I could potentially wear it.
Depending on what I am wearing, I would possibly wear it with a large size difference in the top and the bottom loops.
As mentioned before, due to its thickness there is a lot of material to cover up the whole baby while s/he is nursing.
I actually do own an infinity scarf already, though it is too thin to use as a nursing scarf. It is two simple and beautiful colors, and in my opinion is much more versatile for wearing with other colors.
It also has the option of combining it in different ways so that different amounts of color can be seen. The Ritzy Bitzy scarf does not have that feature, nor do any other nursing ones I’ve seen including the one on my registry with a similar pattern to this one that I’m reviewing.
I do see how this scarf could be useful and how many moms might like it a lot. While it’s too long and too colorful for me to use it on a practical basis, in a pinch, it could do the job and do it well.
