Why owning a nursing pillow is important

5

Moms with newborns are very familiar with nursing pillows. Also called a breastfeeding pillow, this product is specifically designed for moms who are breastfeeding. The pillow helps the baby feel nustled against their mom, while the mom can comfortably feed her baby.

There are so many designs to choose from when it comes to a nursing pillow. But what’s important is that you as a mother will be able to use it to help you. If you plan to breastfeed your child for a while, you may want to invest in one, and if you have more than one child, there is also a breastfeeding pillow for twins. 

If you are wondering why a nursing pillow is important, here are some of the benefits you can get from it. 

  1. It can help moms who have had a C-section – Not all mothers are able to have a spontaneous vaginal delivery. For those who have had to resort to a C-section, their recovery may be longer. There are times when they might feel pain while nursing if the baby would kick or make movements and would accidentally hit their stitches. The pillow can act as a buffer and protect the mother.
  2. It can help prevent back problems – One of the things that mothers do not enjoy about breastfeeding is the back and arm pain. This can especially be bad when their baby gets bigger and heavier, putting more strain on the arms and backs. With a nursing pillow, your body will not be strained because it will ensure that your baby is at the right height from your breast and would be able to feed properly. 
  3. It’s not just for moms, but babies too – You might think that a nursing pillow is just for moms who breastfeed, but that’s not true. If you ever transition to bottle feeding, the nursing pillow can be perfect for baby. 
  4. It’s not just for feeding time – The nursing pillow is also perfect during tummy time. Just make sure that you are there to assist. 

There are many other benefits that you can enjoy with a nursing pillow if you give it a chance. But bear in mind that since there are so many brands and models in the market, you need to consider some things when making the choice on which to buy. 

The first is how long you are planning to nurse. There are different sizes for the pillow, so if you plan to nurse for a while, you may want to get the bigger sized ones. It will also ensure that you will be able to use it for a long time. 

Make sure to also choose a pillow that you will feel comfortable using. Some brands have added features such as fastening straps. While many find them useful, some find them uncomfortable. 

Do look for one that will be easy to clean. It’s impossible for breastfeeding pillows to stay immaculately clean for more than a few days, so you want to get one that will be easy to clean so that you can use it right away.

I would recommend not synthetic but natural pure wool filled nursing pillow. It has no polyester and doesn’t off-gass. It is a healthier choice for babies. You can find very affordable all natural adjustable fill wool nursing pillows. You can order the pillow at https://organic-comfort.com/index.php/product/natural-wool-nursing-pillow-positioner/
