Nursing Pillow- An Essential Item for Nursing Mothers

If you plan to nurse, you may want to buy a nursing pillow instead of using regular pillows. I personally find it much more comfortable using a nursing pillow than regular pillows when nursing. Though many people recommend My Brest Friend, I chose the Boppy Nursing Pillow instead, because I could use it to prop up and assist with sitting when my daughter was ready. Besides using it when nursing, my daughter now lays on the pillow when she takes a bottle on her own.

Beside a nursing pillow, I also think that it may be a good idea to invest on a glider if you plan to breastfeed full-time. You will be spending a lot of time on this task, therefore, making yourself comfortable is important. It contributes to the overall success of breastfeeding, in my opinion. I didn’t get a super expensive one, all I got was a USD $300 Babyletto Bento Glider. Though some users said the glider is too small and you cannot lay back fully because the back of the chair is too low, this glider has been working out for me. I guess I do not want to lay back fully because I don’t want to fall asleep while nursing…
