One of the challenges in breastfeeding is getting privacy during moms’ special connection with their babies. This challenge what inspired Carolina Toro-Gerstein to launch the brand Poncho Baby and its first signature product which is the nursing cover. She drew inspiration from her cultural roots. In the Colombian Andes Mountains, ponchos have been used for centuries as versatile garments to protect against the cold and were used by adults and kids. Due to the lack of easy-to-use products for families and babies on-the-go, she focused the Poncho Baby product line on designing products that were high quality, stylish, eco-friendly, multi-functional and compact. She believes that we all need to support and encourage breastfeeding for all women.

Poncho Baby takes the idea of a traditional nursing cover and puts a bit of a spin on it. It is the first nursing cover to cover both the front and back coverage with a bone on the neckline so you can see you baby while breastfeeding.
It can also be used as additional cover and protection for babies while inside the stroller especially while they are sleeping.
And is comfortable enough to be used as blanket!
It is made of a lightweight cotton muslin fabric, and can be easily folded up to throw in your diaper bag.
Aside from the nursing cover, the Poncho Baby product line continues to expand and now features a variety of baby stuff like the fashionable bandana bibs, blankets, washcloths, and the recently launched organic baby onesies.

Organic Wash Cloth
This is the organic, modern version of a washcloth. Perfect for Baby’s bath—or for Mom, to remove her makeup and gently exfoliate with, and for Dad, as an after-shave cloth. Also made in the USA using soft, 100% organic cotton muslin imported, they only get softer and softer with each washing – perfect for Baby’s delicate skin.
Sold in sets of five; choose from girl-themed colors, boy-themed colors or neutral.
These also make terrific napkins for Baby’s mealtime.

Filipina mommies can now try Poncho Baby after it is being brought here in the Philippines by Lyn Lazaro. She is a loving wife to Jon and a mother of 2 girls (Julianna Louise at 12 yo and Carmillia Nicolle at 7 yo) and 1 baby boy (Tres at 9mos old). After discovering the product and finding it very useful and versatile to bring to her office for breastfeeding, she thought of distributing the products to share how Poncho Baby brings convenience to every moms on-the-go.
