I think one of the most useful products ever created for moms and babies is the nursing pillow. Since it's a pillow created specifically for nursing, the firmness and the comfort is just right for both mom and baby.
When my son was born, I made it my ultimate goal to be able to breastfeed. I have read so many good things about breastfeeding and my pre-natal classes would always discuss those benefits. And though the first few weeks was hard for me, I was eventually able to breastfeed my son. I didn't have a special pillow then but I always heard about baby nursing pillows and I'm just so glad I had the opportunity to receive the Mombo Nursing Pillow and slip cover from Comfort & Harmony.
The Mombo Nursing Pillow has a Firm2Soft 2-sided construction. The firm side gives good back support during feeding, and the soft side gives comfort for lounging. It also come with a vibrator which requires a C battery (not included) that you can insert inside the pillow in order to soothe your baby.
Since my son isn't breastfeeding anymore and is quite too big for the Mombo, I asked my friend to try it out for me. She's currently breastfeeding her 1-month old son and she appreciates the convenience and comfort that the Mombo offers during feeding time.
The pillow is very easy to use and you can easily insert the slip cover without "wrestling" with it. And I just love the design on the slip cover. The one I received was the Elepaloo design and it was adorable! It also looked and felt like it was made of quality materials and won't just tear apart easily in the washer or dryer.
If you're a new mom, are expecting, or know someone who is, I encourage you to try it out. The Mombo is definitely a must-have item for those with babies!
