Top 10 #1: Nursing PillowPosted on July 13th, 2008 No comments
This is the first item in my Top 10 Things I Could Not Have Lived Without During My Baby’s First Year post.
I strongly recommend a Boppy Nursing Pillow. Whether you are breast or bottle feeding, this pillow was a great help. If you are bottle feeding, you can have at least one hand free to read or use the computer, or, if you’re breast feeding, you could even have two hands free if you want! It was particularly helpful while I was breast feeding Samantha, because she didn’t latch on very well at first, and I needed two hands to get her head and my”self” into the right position, and it was great to not have to worry about holding the rest of her body in the right spot.
You could use pillows to do the same thing, I suppose, but the u-shape of this pillow is perfect! You can also use it help prop up a baby during tummy time or have a baby sit in the middle of it on the floor when they’re learning to sit up!
The other nice feature is that you can buy fun colorful slipcovers that are washable, plus the entire pillow itself is machine washable! There are other companies that make a similar pillow, but I didn’t leave the house without my Boppy!
Yes, the baby’s under there somewhere!
