I'm due in Dec. too! I like the mom_on_the_go_poncho, but I know from nursing my previous 2 that baby gets sweaty under there. I finally ended up using a 1 yard piece of searsucker material and that worked best. Keep in mind she's (we) are going to be nursing in the summer too. also there's a nursing shawl that I love and will use again with this one, it's called Loved Baby
I have the blue one b/c I wear jeans all the time, but love this shawl!!! It has other uses too, if you look at the website. And it's machine washable/dryable. Maybe this would be a good Christmas gift for her; not sure when she's due. definatly a best buy in my oppinion!
