The useful pillows for the period of nursing are available in many different sizes. Dependant on your own body size and the field of use, different models need to be considered.

Lengths chosen are most often 140 cm and 180 cm. There are, however, also models with a length of up to 220cm.
Longer cushions can be used during the last months of pregnancy to get a comfortable and stable lying position. The cushion needs to be put between your thighs. It helps you to relieve your back and guarantees a comfortable sleeping position.

If you do not put the baby correctly to your breast, it often leads to hurting nipples and infections. An early break of nursing often has the mentioned complications as consequence and through a premature weaning a lot of advantages could get lost. Important antibodies and nutrients are not delivered to your child anymore. Another thing is the financial factor. Those who early break up nursing need to come back to baby food.
Our tip: A pain-relieving ointment for your breast could be helpful to avoid complications through hurting or inflamed nipples.

The classic filling consists of small micro beads. Those are washable and adapt to your body’s form. The filling of micro beads is odorless and offers a stable hold. An alternative to that are the PES hollow fiber beads. The structure is similar to cotton wool, very soft and usually washable and suitable for a dryer. Spelt fur is a natural alternative. However, such a bio cushion needs to be washed at hand.
The covers of most of the nursing pillows are made of cotton or synthetic rubber. But also more exclusive alternative, e.g. real leather are available. Pay attention to a cover without a patent zipper. In the ideal case, the cover is removable and suitable for a washing machine. Once in a while it can happen that something is spilled while nursing. Another alternative are nursing pillows with a plush cover. Those are extremely soft but need to be washed at hand.
A nursing pillow can be used differently. The classic nursing position is the so-called tummy-to-tummy nursing. Even if you think your little one is light, your arms can get heavy when nursing for 30 minutes. The tummy-to-tummy position spreads the weight onto the pillow. Therefore you need to put it around the upper part of your body in the form of a horse shoe. Then you put your little one onto the pillow to your breast. The head is on the level of your breast. This position is both for you and your baby the most comfortable.
