That sounds cheap doesn’t it? Just for one pillow you might say. But I guess many women may not have heard of breastfeeding pillow, also called nursing or feeding pillow. Yes, they can always do without it. But not for the careful and particularly strict mother who knows what the this kind of pillow does to make her job easy.
A nursing pillow isn’t just any household pillow. Ordinary bed pillows are generally so soft that your child will sink down too low, and throw pillows aren’t always comfy against the skin. Both types, which are generally rectangular or circular, are also the wrong shape. The best breastfeeding pillow is rounded just enough to snuggle against your abdomen; it’s also firm enough to keep baby positioned up where they need to nurse.
The Nook Sleep Niche Feeding Pillow is the most expensive one of the bunch at $100 (about N36,000).It is a square-shaped nursing pillow designed to grow with babies as they go from newborns to a year; it’s even recommended for use in tandem nursing with twins.
This pillow is made in the USA from eucalyptus and organic cotton; the Nook’s patented “Pebble Fabric” is made to be naturally water resistant, making it simple to clean up spit-up or urine incidents. The specially designed fabric is bathed in natural zinc, which makes it anti-mite, anti-mold, anti-fungal and hypoallergenic. The cover is removable and machine-washable.
Some consumers complain that the material tends to pill and/or fade. Some slender mamas complain that the pillow does not stay snug against their waists during nursing sessions. This product is the most expensive one of the bunch at $100. This pillow can also be used to prop up baby for tummy time and practicing sitting up.
