Nursing Pillow Buying Guide
Breastfeeding pillows are a huge help for nursing mums in terms of support and comfort.
What To Consider
- A factor to consider when purchasing a pillow is the length of time you expect to breastfeed. If you will be nursing at home exclusively for your baby's first year, you may want to invest in a pillow that can last (and that your baby won't outgrow so quickly).
- While not a necessary item, nursing pillows do help to keep correct posture and reduce strain on your arms, back and neck, making feeding much more comfortable. It's especially a big help for c-section mums
- Try on a nursing pillow before buying it. The shape that works best for you depends on your height and body type, so there is no one size fits all!
