I’ve never been much of a fashion-forward girl and I’d like to think that I’m more of the simple, shirts and jeans type. My wardrobe became even simpler when I became a mom. Shirts and jeans became even more of a staple as both let me keep my hands on handling my kid and not fuss over the state of my clothes.

Recently though, I discovered a simple fashion accessory that’s very much useful for every mommy: the infinity scarf.

The infinity scarf or circle shawl is basically a large, closed loop of fabric that can be worn in a number of ways. Unlike regular scarves that are basically rectangular pieces of cloth, infinity scarves are also rectangular but with no ends. The ends are sewn together to form a circle or an “infinite” scarf — think malongs, but smaller. Now, if you’re wondering how a scarf can be so useful for moms, well, let me count the ways:

You can use it as a breastfeeding or pumping cover.

The most obvious use moms can get out of infinity scarves is as a breastfeeding or pumping cover. Although yes, a number of breastfeeding and pumping covers are already available out in the market, the infinity scarf offers a number of advantages for this use: (a) it is fashionable enough to leave as is in your neck when your baby’s not nursing, and easily position him anytime, anywhere once he wants to, and (b) you can use it even after your breastfeeding days are over. Just take a peek at Instagram or Google and you’ll see the number of ways you can wear one.

You can use it as a high chair cover.

Us moms can be a bit anal about germs, especially in public spaces — spraying alcohol or disinfectant on every surface our baby might come in contact with, like tables and high chairs. Why stop at cleaning and wiping when you can actually cover it with something before your baby uses it? You can use your infinity scarf by draping it into the high chair. The scarf will cover the high chair in a way that your baby will not touch nor lick the high chair’s surfaces or sides (there’s no guarantee that they’re cleaned well after each use, or even after the end of each day).

You can use it as a grocery cart seat cover.

I once read an article wherein it says that one of the most dangerous and dirty surfaces a baby can touch is a grocery cart seat. In fact, the baby got sick just by touching the grocery cart handles and then putting his hand in his mouth. In the same way that you can use your infinity scarf to cover high chairs, you can use it to cover grocery cart seats before putting your baby in, ensuring that he doesn’t touch the cart’s actual surfaces or handles.

You can use it as a stroller or bassinet/car seat cover.

Protect your baby from the sun’s rays while he’s sitting pretty in his stroller or bassinet by using your infinity scarf as a cover. Another upside is the fact that it’s looped, making it less likely to slip off.

Truly, the infinity scarf may be a simple piece of looped cloth but the possibilities for mommy, and even for baby’s use are endless. So buy 1 (or even 10) and start looping.
