Better.tv: Five Products for Mom, by Desiree Miller of BottlestoBritches.com

Pregnancy & Newborn: My sister-in-law and I recently had a discussion about how obnoxious it is when strangers (or even well-meaning friends) touch your baby—especially on his hands, which inevitably fly right up to his mouth. It’s flu season, people… let’s not expose our tiny kiddos to any more germs than necessary! Enter Sprout Shell, an ingenious creation that fits easily over any size infant carrier to create a tent-like enclosure..

MotherProof.com: Whenever another new baby product hits the market promising to be all things to all people, I’m skeptical. The Sprout Shell is one such product. It purports to be an infant-safety seat cover, a nursing cover and a shopping cart cover all in one stylish piece of cloth. Needless to say, I entered into this review with a skeptically raised eyebrow. After giving it a whirl, however, I can tell you that Sprout Shell…

Nashville Parent–Baby Guide: “Sprout Shell Chic Infant Carrier Covers are thin, unique covers that make Baby more comfortable and protected…

The Traveling Mom: …Well, the Sprout Shell can be all those things combined. It folds up small so you can throw it in your diaper bag and have it ready for whatever needs you have

The Toy Man50 Best Products of 2009

I LOVE how it is an infant car seat cover that fits snuggly around the car seat.  I never have to worry about it coming up and baby is always protected from the elements.

This will not only save me room in the diaper bag, but will save me money since I will not have to purchase four different products.

It’s not everyday that a product comes along that makes me go on and on about it’s greatness. Sprout Shell is one of those products, that I literally want to tell every mama that comes within 5 feet of it how stinkin amazing it is. It really is THAT great!

MomandMore: “When I saw the Sprout Shell I knew it was an awesome product – to take the place of three separate products it sold me right away.”

 A Mom’s Balancing Act: …From the start, I was very impressed with the material of this cover. Having such cold weather, and not knowing whether it will be raining or snowing from one day to the next…I loved the fact that this particular Sprout Shell was made of super soft, and warm 100% Cotton Corduroy. We have used different covers in the past, but what I LOVE about this one, is the fact…

Oh My Baby: This stylish carrier cover helped fix the problems I was having with Baby L’s blanket always falling off. The tent like enclosure helps to protect Baby L from the cold (and wind, rain and noise). The opening at the top fits the carseat handle so I can carry it without any obstruction. It also allows airflow for Baby L and lets me peek inside without bothering him if he’s fallen asleep…

The Cloth Diaper Report: Finally a multifunction product to save you room in your diaper bag and money in your wallet. The Sprout Shell serves as a infant car seat cover, shopping cart cover, restaurant chair cover and nursing cover all in one. I purchased a nursing cover and a shopping cart/highchair cover after my daughter was born and spent almost $100 for the two items…

 

Miami Munchkins: Stretch it over your infant carrier to block out sun and mosquitoes, slip it over your head for nursing privacy on the go or bring it to the market for an instant shopping cart cover. It’s soft, stretchy and easy to clean, ensuring it will be in our diaper bag for a long time…

GRAND Magazine: Grand Seal of Approval


Minnesota Mama’s Must Haves: Sprout Shell is the only multi-functional infant carrier cover. That’s right, it has more than one use! It can be used as a carseat cover, shopping cart cover, high chair cover and nursing cover! I love all in one products. Moms don’t need to cart around five different products when one can do everything…

The Island Life: …What I really liked about Sprout Shell is the opening on the top where the car seat handle peeks through. I think it’s so much safer that I can grab the actual car seat handle itself rather than through the material. This way there’s no chance of it slipping from my hands. The opening is also large enough…

SwankyMoms.com…Looking for a nursing cover… infant carseat cover or maybe a shopping cart or highchair cover?? Well, great news… I have one product that can serve all these functions!!Crazy hey?!The Sprout Shell is definitely not your average one purpose product, it is truly an impressive mom invented product! …

The plus is that it is chic. The super-plus is that it can be used as a “shell” for shopping carts and high chairs as well as a nursing cover-up…

4 Baby and Mom: There are so many products on the market today, claiming to make “being a mom” easier. From diaper bags, to can openers, as a super-mom we sift through newspaper ads and click through the internet to find the best of the best. In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, I figured I would rave about the Sprout Shell and it’s multi-functioning capabilities!…

Jolly Mom:Babies have so much stuff. It multiplies all over your home, in your car, and in your bag! That’s why I am a HUGE believer in dual-purpose products–whenever I can find a product that performs MORE than one function I get it! Anything to reduce the amount of stuff in my home. When I was introduced to The Sprout Shell, I literally swooned with excitement!

Coffee with the Mrs.: Having the baby in the fall means that I need to make sure she’s nice and warm when carrying her around in her infant car seat. When trying to keep Alex warm and protected from the rain/snow/cold as an infant, we grabbed a blanket and tried to keep him covered without it blowing away. While looking around online, I came across Sprout Shell and was amazed at its design.

The Army Wife: Blankets are always falling off carriers and it can be a pain toting it around. When searching for infant covers, I came across Sprout Shell… The main difference between Sprout Shell infant carrier covers and other models is, the Sprout Shell infant carrier cover is chic and modern…

Gerber Babies Blog: Okay, so you may not be famous with a need to shield your baby from glaring camera flashes and too close paparazzi, but a cover-up is nice… Don’t let the frost settle on your little bundle!

Babble; Droolicious: The fabric is lightweight and can easily be rolled up to store in a diaper bag. As an infant carrier cover, it doeswork like a tent to protect baby from sun and wind. It’s elasticity stretches easily so you can slip it…

Mogul BabyI was a bit skeptical at first but find this product pretty useful. It slips over a carrier easily because of the stretchable elastic. As a nursing cover I think it works best on small babies. It’s only because the elastic would fit over a baby’s body better than a one-year-old…

WellSphere: …More practical than a traditional blanket because of its elastic and stretch, Sprout Shell won’t fall off or blow away, and fits over virtually any infant carrier. More importantly, it is the only carrier cover on the market that is also multi-functional. An anytime, anywhere 3-in-1 accessory that is stylish, functional and practical…

BabyLuxe {daily}: Newborns need to be sheltered from the world, for health reasons mainly but also because light, noise, etc… frightens baby early on and that infant carrier really isn’t their favorite place in the world {unless you are my youngest who decided to spend most of his first few months “living, eating, and sleeping” out of his carrier}…

My Organized Chaos: … a protective covering for carrier seats. Designed to go on and stay on, it features an elastic that holds it in place, like, Umm…a shell! I was sent one to try out, and it was extremely easy to put on. I could put it on even when the girls were sleeping, and not disturb them. Using ordinary blankets seem to leave holes and gaps, which expose a baby to the elements…

Give Away Today: …So you get three products in one! Seriously, folks, how often do you get three terrific products in one? Not often.

Momma Findings: This product will end your frustrations of using a blanket over the carrier…only to have the blanket blow off in the wind, or worse, cause you to lose your grip on the carrier. The shell is made of high-quality cotton and has a reinforced opening in the top for air-flow for the baby and handle-access for mom and dad.

Popular Baby Products: …When I discovered Sprout Shell I immediately saw it’s benefits.  Most of the time, when it’s cool and windy outside I try to drape a blanket over our infant carrier to protect our baby…

Babies Travel Lite: Sprout Shell is a fabulous little invention that shields baby from the elements, from germs, from touchy older women, and plain and simply protects them as you venture out of the house timidly for those first few months…

Hip Little One: I just love it when baby stuff is multifunctional, it really makes life so much easier! That’s what the creative minds from Sprout Shell must have thought too when they designed such a fabulous product. Three lovely mums put their talents together to come up with something totally new and innovative: an infant cover that has many uses and is very fashionable at the same time….

KidGlue.comSo how did it hold up to the hype?  Pretty well!  It fit over my infant carrier nicely and provided a well-ventilated little tent, which I imagine would be very soothing for a baby.  It was a little snug when I tried to simulate a nursing hold with my 2.5 year old (fully clothed of course, no childhood trauma caused), but it would definitely be roomy enough for nursing babies up to 12-18 months old.  Again the secure design…

Kids Today: Sprout Shell’s Minky Blankie is a car seat blanket and ‘lovey’ in one. At 18 inches, it’s just the right size to cover your little one in the car seat, and to carry around as a favorite comfort blanket.

Eco Child’s Play: When I had infants, I was never one for buying all the paraphernalia many parents think they need to be successful (see Heather’s great series Baby Essentials that Aren’t).  One item I wish I would have had was a shopping cart cover, but I couldn’t see buying one.  Now Sprout Shell offers one that is multi-purposed, which makes it useful in so many more ways and thus more environmentally friendly…

Mommies with Style: …use for the Sprout Shell and tossed it in my diaper bag for the next time I’m out and the mean EMT is around. The Sprout Shell has multiple uses. It can be fashioned over your baby carrier (which is definitely how I’m using it). Its a light-weight cloth with elastic all around the edges and fits perfectly over any baby carrier (I’ve tried it on 2), blocking the sun and (someday) the wind…

Someone Spoil MeAll new moms have way too much stuff in their diaper bag and are definitely looking for ways to condense what they are carrying.  This is exactly why we suggest giving the new mom a Sprout Shell.  This 3 in 1 necessity serves as aninfant car seat carrier cover (protecting the baby from germs, winds, and strangerss),  nursing cover and shopping cart cover….
