A Nursing Mom's BFF: The Nursing Pillow

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Comfort and Harmony. All opinions are 100% mine.

High five to myself and Penny for making it to the 15 month  mark of our nursing relationship!

It wasn't always easy; early on we battled positioning issues and a difficult latch. But our triumphs outweigh our hardships! We successfully ditched the shield after 3 weeks and even maintained a sense of humor while learning how to nurse in public while traveling. Nowadays, this seasoned mama can scope out a comfortable spot *like that* and settle in with her nursling. Like in the back of our suburban on our recent camping trip.

One of my biggest aids has been our nursing pillow. It's kept Penny up to the right level, gave my arms a rest and even freed my fingers for a quick email or text here and there. A lot of moms use their nursing pillows for other uses - like positioning the baby to help encourage sitting up on their own or for tummy time. Penny didn't start to enjoy using the nursing pillow for other uses until toddlerhood - now she loves sitting in the comfortable U-shape while watching her daily allowance of Elmo (and I get a bit of house work done while I have the chance!).

The Comfort & Harmony mombo nursing pillow has 2 really cool features that my standard pillow does not:
  • Its two sides differ in firmness. The nursing side is supportive to help Mom get her baby close and secure for a comfortable nursing session. The other side is softer, which helps the baby with tummy time.
  • It has a "vibe inside," to offer a soft vibration to help soothe the baby. Gosh, I wish I had that for the early days!

The mombo nursing pillow is available at Toys 'R Us and Babies 'R Us, along with a variety of other Comfort and Harmony products - ranging from bouncers, swings and shopping cart covers.
