Breastfeeding Pillows

Nursing Pillows That Make Breastfeeding a Breeze

What did mothers do before all of the posh pleasures of newborn life were introduced to the modern world? Technology and genius inventions have made the life of a mama much easier to manage, even breastfeeding. Where a pillow and a couch were the only accessories a mom once needed, she can now sit in the lap of luxury with a plush nursing cushion that adjusts to her specifications and even has a pouch to hold her nipple cream and water. Some offer a separate layer to adjust the child's positioning while others turn into lounge chairs for the wee ones. While any woman could get by with her own two arms and her babe, it makes the lactating world a more pleasant place to be when mommy can rest easily.

Fair warning, I've heard of certain men taking control of these tools of motherhood for their football watching frenzies on Saturday afternoons and turning the pouch into a beer and remote control apparatus.

I had a c-section and the boppy was great. I am going to buy a new one before my second is born in two months. It is one of the top five things I recommend you have with a newborn.

I have a Boppy. Haven't used it yet, but that's what most of my mommy friends recommended.
