If you are anything like me, once you find out you are expecting that precious bundle (a baby, for those who are wondering) your mind goes into overdrive. Well, at least mine did when we found out (over two years ago) we were expecting Sebastian. You see, I like to be prepared – I was bought up in Girl Guides and that was our motto. So I spent hours and hours scouring the internet, reading books and writing lists figuring out exactly what we would ‘need’ for this little nugget. I wanted to insure the essentials were covered as well as some of those wants (or luxury items), our house isn’t huge so compromise was needed.
Strangely enough, one item that was completely over looked was a Nursing / Feeding / Support Pillow. In fact it wasn’t until I was indulging in my five day post C-section hospital stay that one was even considered. And my Mum (thanks Mum!) went on a mercy dash, grabbing one of those tri pillows. Now don’t get me wrong, it was a saving grace; has been used a multitude of times and I could definitely use it again, but.. this time I don’t have to.
This time I have been lucky enough to have been given a 4 in 1 Nursing Pillow from the lovely ladies at Babies.co.nz and I couldn’t be more excited about using it.
4 in 1 – you ask?!? That’s right, this bad boy does it all (expect wash the dishes and fold the washing) but close.
It can be used as a..
- Pregnancy Pillow – providing that much needed extra back support for Mum, perfect for those final few months or weeks
- Nursing Pillow – helping to make breastfeeding more comfortable whilst easing the strain on your back and neck. Because of its size, it can be easier to use than a bulky bed pillow
- Baby Nest – perfect for allowing your baby to rest comfortably in a slightly raised position; provides great support for tummy time
- Tumble Support – when your little one is learning to sit, it is great at ensuring they wont topple and when the do they wont hurt themselves
I am loving the fact that it isn’t too big, it will be perfect for Sebastian (big brother) to use and I will feel more confident letting him hold his younger sibling knowing they are BOTH supported. Already Sebastian has enjoyed using it as a pillow and playing on it (it makes the perfect ramp for cars in a 2 year olds eyes) and I can see myself having to jostle it off him when it come to feeding the baby.
An added bonus, it is washable – simply unzip it, take the pillow out and wash the cover. It is that easy (and hey, I am all for easy when there is a newborn in the house). Plus, this pillow comes in two fabulous prints the Jungle (which I have here) and Teddy Bear.
Seriously, I cant wait to start using it myself – and not just for zooming cars up and down 😉
