A nursing pillow is a useful helper. Even during pregnancy, it stands out as an indispensable companion. The variety of nursing pillows is thus extensive. They are made of different materials in different sizes. A good nursing pillow needs to be customised to your individual needs. If you choose your nursing pillow, you will be surprised how versatile it is. Here you can find selected sleeping and nursing pillows that feature outstanding quality and make breastfeeding simple and stress-free.
The practical pillows for the breastfeeding period are available in many different sizes. Depending on your own size and the field of use, different models need to be considered. If you intend to use the nursing pillow for breastfeeding only, you will find a shorter version sufficient enough. These shorter models usually feature a length of 120 cm and comfortably fit around the front of your upper body. The most common lengths chosen are 140 cm and 180 cm. There are, however, also models with a length of up to 220 cm.
Longer pillows can be used during the last months of pregnancy to get a comfortable and stable lying position. To do so, you need to put the pillow between your thighs. This helps you to relieve your back and ensures a comfortable sleeping position.
A good nursing pillow is a real enrichment for all breastfeeding moms. As a new mom it is not easy to manage all the tasks and stay relaxed and calm throughout the day. A nursing pillow makes things easier and helps you to relax during the time with your little one.
A nursing pillow contributes to a comfy position that will make you both feel better. That is very important because if you do not let your baby latch on correctly, you might suffer from hurting nipples and infections later on. This can lead to early interruptions or even a stopping of breastfeeding. Premature weaning often causes a lot of advantages to get lost. If you wish to breastfeed your baby with joy, you would do well to get a suitable nursing pillow that give you the necessary support.
If you want to use a nursing pillow already during pregnancy, you can of course purchase one at the beginning of it. This pillow is a popular gift at baby parties. So, let your friends and family know which model you would like to have.
A good nursing pillow can even be used after the breastfeeding period. It is also suitable as barrier in your baby’s cot or perfect for cuddling. If you get comfortable on our sofa in the evening it can also help you relax.
The range of nursing pillows offered is diverse. When choosing one, it is important that you choose a model that suits you. Due to the long period of use, it is advisable to make sure that the nursing pillow is of good quality.
The classic filling consists of small microbeads. These are washable and fit perfectly to your body shape. The filling of microbeads is odourless and offers optimum support. An alternative to the reinforced microbeads is EPS hollow fibre beads. Their structure is similar to cotton wool, very soft, usually washable effortlessly and suitable for being tumble dried. Spelt husks are a more natural filling material. However, such an organic nursing pillow must be cleaned by hand.
The covers of most nursing pillows are made of cotton or synthetic fibre. But exclusive versions made of real leather are also available in stores. When choosing a nursing pillow, make sure that the cover does not have an exposed zipper. Ideally, the cover is removable and suitable for being machine washed. Because when breastfeeding, little mishaps will happen every now and then. Another alternative is a nursing pillow with a plush cover. These are extremely soft, but have to be washed by hand.
A nursing pillow can be used in many different ways. A classic breastfeeding position is so-called tummy-to-tummy breastfeeding. While your baby may seem light to you, they can get pretty heavy with an average breastfeeding time of 30 minutes. In the tummy-to-tummy position, you distribute your child's weight completely on the nursing pillow without losing a stable posture. To do this, you create the shape of a horseshoe with the pillow and put it around your upper body. Then you simply put your baby on the pillow in front of you. The head is at the level of the nipple. This position provides a comfortable breastfeeding position for both you and your baby.
