When Julia was a baby I thought it would be nice to have a nursing pillow. I was trying to save money so I made up my own pattern, but I had never even held a “real” nursing pillow.
I ended up just looking at a picture of a popular name brand nursing pillow and did the best I could. That pillow made it through 4 babies, but I didn’t love it.
The nursing pillow I made ended up being used more for extra support for my babies when they were learning to sit.
When I was pregnant with Janna a friend gave me one of the popular name brand nursing pillows and I really tried to love it.
However, I ended up mostly using it as a sitting/tummy time support instead of a nursing pillow because I found it just didn’t support Janna while she was nursing the way I had hoped it would.
When I recently had the opportunity to review a Mombo™ nursing pillow I said “Yes!” even though Janna is a wriggly nursing toddler and not an infant that requires me to sit and nurse her for long periods of time. Still, I wanted to see what was so different about this nursing pillow compared to others I have tried.
Before I even opened the packaging I was excited because the pillow had two sides, a softer side for lounging and a firmer side for breastfeeding, Plus, there was a vibration feature which seemed totally cool because my babies all preferred a vibrating bouncy seat to a swing.
I was really impressed with the design and quality of the pillow and decided to test it out on my nephew, who is 6 months old.
Look at how cute he is and he doesn’t even seem to mind that the pillow is pink. 🙂 (FYI: They do make slipcovers for these nursing pillows.)
We tried out the vibrating feature that fits inside the pillow by way of the zipper that you can sort of see in the middle of the pillow.
While my nephew liked using the pillow for tummy time we didn’t keep him that way for long. Since he is more inclined to sit we tried out the pillow for support and he loved it.
He was just hanging out chewing on his toy like, “It’s all good.” or something like that. 😉
My sister-in-law also tried out the pillow for nursing her little guy and she loved the support it provided. I felt the same way.
Actually, I really felt that this nursing pillow would have been totally awesome to have had 14 years ago, or even 10, 8, 5, or 2 years ago.
After testing out the Mombo™ nursing pillow I have to say that I am very impressed and would totally recommend it for any nursing mama.
You can get these nursing pillows, and other Comfort & Harmony products, at Babies R Us. I would definitely put it on your baby product wish list or give one as a gift to a new mom.
