I just bought some nursing bras at Motherhood Maternity today and they gave me some coupons for carseat canopy's, udder covers, and seven slings. I just used to carseat canopy one and now I'm worried that it's a scam. There website doesn't accept returns only exchanges and someone online said that they don't fit most carseats? Has anyone done this? I figured I was safe since Motherhood is issuing the coupon in their baby gift bag thing. Anyway if anyone else is interested you can google all of those products to get the product codes. All the car seat canopy weren't going to ship til April 27 or after. Hopefully its not a scam and at least I'm protected through paypal?? I'll update when/if I get it.
No its not a scam - a friend of mine ordered the udder cover and it was free but she paid shipping - the thing is its the cheapest thing ever - made in China and probably costs $1 to make - so the money they get from you for shipping is their "profit" -

I didn't do the carseat cover, but I did the Udder Cover. Personally, I don't think it is cheap. I love the loop it has in the front so I can see DD while she is BF. The fabric isn't super thick, but I prefer it that way to DD doesn't get too hot under there. It is not too thin so that it is see through though. It has lasted through 2 kids so far. I would think that the carseat cover would be fine as well. Let us know when you get it, if you wouldn't mind. I would be curious to hear about it.
Yup. Got the carseat canopy and the Udder Cover, only paying shipping. Love them both, but I especially love the Udder Cover. I always had a hard time keeping a receiving blanket over me and baby, but with the Udder Cover it is no problem. LOVE IT. The canopy was great when it was colder, not that it is getting warmer I took it off.

Thanks for the replies!
eabaldwin - I used to sell udder covers and thought they were nice too, so I have some left over from when I sold them. Never occurred to me that they were cheap, but probably not as nice as a bebe au lait - but still great! I'll let you know about the canopy. They said it would ship until April 27th, so hopefully I'll get it in a couple weeks.
ThreePrinces - Good to know! I was hoping the canopy wasn't going to be too warm for spring/summer. But I live in idaho and it still is 50 to 65 degrees here. I'm so paranoid about baby temperature, so I'll be careful. :)
Just to update you guys. I received my carseat canopy and I love it. It looks like pretty good quality. The colors are beautiful and it fits my car seat perfect. My car seat is kind of big, its a britax besafe or something. Its the one with the hard head flaps that go bilateral to baby's head. It was well worth the $12 and much more. I got it when they said I would. Love it!
edited to say I have a britax chaperone which is big and the canopy cover fits great
I knew you'd love it. Are you going to get the Udder Cover? I use mine every day!
I have the same type of coupons and just purchased one of the udder covers (paid shipping only). I'm thinking about the carseat canopy, but I'm not sure what it is. Does it just go over the baby and hang off the handle, not under the baby?thanks!

Threeprinces yes I do love it! And I used to sell udder covers at a mall kiosk so I had some left over so I do use my udder cover every day.
Wishn4baby - yeah its great. It has to velcro straps that attach to your handle and then it drapes over your carseat from front to back. So it goes on top of your built it weather protector canopy thing and it doesn't touch the baby.
Yes the coupons or promo codes do work, I just bought a canopy off of carseatcanopy.com and only had to pay shipping. I used the promo code colt1
I'm thinking of getting the whole "caboodle set" for the carseat including canoopy. I'm just concerned that the lining and the actually sun shade canpopy piece may not cover the whole thing. I have a safety first infant car seat. Did you get the whole thing or just the carseat cover??
i did get both the carseat canopy and the utter covers sling (what a terrible name, don't you think?). Any how, I have not used my cover very much because my son does not like it...he likes to be able to see me and interact with me more, so I pretty much have to just let everything hang out there :) But, the carseat canopy I LOVE! It is a good quality, is easy to wash and take care of, assists in blocking light or sun so your baby can sleep, and I have even used it as a blanket on the ground for little one to play on (it is super easy since the canopy is only held on by 2 velcro pieces). I highly recommend the canopy!
I have gotten these for myself and friends. Very nice. Anyone can get these at carseatcanopy.com use PROMO CODE: CUTE4U at checkout. Takes off $50 and you pay s&h which is around $12.90. It also works if you want to get the five piece "Whole Caboodle." Takes of $50--costs you $29.95. Cute and practical.
Thanks for the specs... I have heard about this promotion from friends, but since I haven't shopped at Motherhood since pregnancy #1... I just ordered the carseat canopy for a first-time mom friend and the nursing cover/re-usable nursing pads for myself!
Can't wait for baby to be here so I can use them!
