When I first saw the pillow, I thought that it was much larger than my other nursing pillows so I wondered if I’d like it. However, the fact that it is taller than other nursing pillows, is precisely what makes it more comfortable and takes the strain off your back and neck. My arms were able to relax because I wasn’t straining to hold the child. I was able to sit up straight and just use my hands to keep the child in place because I wasn’t using my back, neck or arm muscles to do it like I normally do.
- At the first stage, mom uses the Feeding Pillow, Nurture Boost, and a newborn mat—this slightly firmer surface helps baby stay awake while feeding.
- For the second stage, mom uses the Feeding Pillow and Nurture Boost—a small pillow that allows you to give baby just that perfect incline for feeding. And even better: it can be used on the left or right to accommodate your feeding needs.
- By the third stage, growing babies can use the Feeding Pillow on its own. This contoured pillow offers the comfort of just-right height for mom and baby during feeding.
- For easier care, a selection of machine-washable slip covers and deluxe covers are also available (sold separately).
I actually stopped using a nursing pillow months ago because I thought it was only important to do so with a new baby, but after trying the Born Free Bliss Nursing Pillow I am going to continue using it. Since it is designed to adapt along with my growing baby, I can use it as long as I continue to breastfeed.
