When it comes to breastfeeding, finding the correct position is the key to success. From nipple pain to aching arms to low milk supply, breastfeeding is not without its challenges. However, once you find your sweet spot, breastfeeding becomes an experience to treasure.
The new Ergobaby Natural Curve Nursing Pillow helps you find that sweet spot, so you can relax, feed comfortably and bond with baby. The pillow’s unique design was developed with the help of lactation experts and feedback from nursing mums, so they’ve taken care of the most common issues breastfeeding mamas face.
The pillow’s contoured shape means that you and baby will be tummy-to-tummy, and baby’s head and body will be angled towards you, ensuring a better latch. Another benefit is that baby’s head will also be supported a little above his tummy, letting gravity help with digestion…and we all know that a baby who has good digestion is a happy baby!
The Natural Curve Nursing Pillow isn’t your standard soft pillow either. It’s made from solid foam that holds its shape, so baby won’t sink into the pillow, but will stay up where you put her. This means you’re less likely to slouch forward, so less neck, arm and back pain for you. You won’t need extra pillows to prop it up, and there are no awkward straps or clips to deal with. You just sit, push it towards you and gently place baby on top. And don’t worry about your post-baby belly bits getting in the way; the pillow is firm, but it will squish where it needs to squish! There’s also incredible arm support from the curved shape that wraps around your waist – just what you need during those marathon feeding sessions.
And because they’re so practical, Ergobaby has provided a removable, machine washable cover that’s super soft on top for baby’s sensitive skin and 100% poplin cotton on the bottom. It also features interior lining for an extra layer of protection for those inevitable leaks and “solid burps”.
The Ergobaby Natural Curve Nursing Pillow comes in a selection of colours from versatile neutrals to the quirky black and white sheep print.
RRP $169 Available from selected baby boutiques and online retailers including Belly Beyond and The Baby Factory.
