I would have thought by three years and two kids later I’d be set with my baby gear. But the truth is, I keep finding more great products to love!
Take nursing pillows. Now… I had kind of stopped using my other ones at this point since our baby is 10 months old. And squirmy while nursing – especially if big brother is around to entertain him!
Then I tried out the mombo nursing pillow – it’s got several features I had never tried out before in a nursing pillow. So now I have it hanging around all the time!
The shape of the mombo is unique in that it has a wider front/center area for baby to rest on and then narrower “arms,” as I call them to wrap around you while you nurse.
Then there’s the Firm2Soft™ – each side of the mombo has a different feel. There’s a soft and cozy side with a microplush material. Very inviting for baby to snuggle and sleep (with or without mommy – my son loves to just lounge on this side!). The firm side has great support for nursing the baby – although my son prefers the soft side. I imagine a smaller/younger baby would like firm support, and the firm side would help moms nurse easier!
Now for my favorite feature – the vibration! Tuck in the sleek vibrating device into the nursing pillow and your baby gets a soothing experience. It’s a very gentle rhythm – I imagine a baby would just fall right asleep to this gentle motion.
Check out the mombo in my video – you can see how easy it was to turn the vibration on and off:
I used to think nursing pillows were just for breastfeeding moms – before I became a mom! The mombo is especially “not just for breastfeeding” because of the cool vibrating feature that babies might enjoy to relax with. It’s also great for sitting baby up, or having tummy time!
mombo nursing pillows (available at Babies R Us) come in an assortment of pillow styles (Standard, Deluxe, or Nude™). Plus there’s slipcover fashions to pick from so you can express your style, or have a spare for laundry time! Every part of the mombo has a quality construction to it, making this a pillow I’d recommend.
What other ways have you used a nursing pillow to soothe, rest, and nurse your baby?
