As a major fan of breastfeeding I'm all for products that aid women in this hard but rewarding journey that is feeding your child naturally. Chicco sent me one of their Boppy Nursing Pillows to review for them and hopefully if you purchase it, you'll like it just as much as I do.
First impressions of the Boppy Nursing Pillow are good. It comes in it’s own handy clear zip case which has strong handles so easily portable for taking into hospital, round to your mums, trips in the car and away on holiday with you. It also keeps the pillow protected and clean which is a must as it will come into contact with your baby daily.
The pillow itself is firm and cushioned but comfortable to sit around your waist for feeding baby. I tend to find the firmer nursing pillows are better at supporting your baby and yourself too. It keeps baby comfy and higher up so your arm does not become tired whilst feeding so it's a win win really. You'll be pleased to know that the Boppy Nursing Pillow has a removable cotton slipcover which can be machine washed and dried at 30o, full instructions are provided to show you how.
There are so many different ways you can use this pillow and it has been so popular in the US that it has been voted favourite baby product 9 times! So you can obviously use this pillow to feed your baby but it is also great to help them sit up unaided due to it’s ergonomic shape that has been scientifically researched. It can also be used for the all important tummy time and to lay your baby on their back whilst having their head properly supported. Quite a versatile little pillow don't you agree! Boppy explains that also "The "Miracle Middle Insert", is an exclusive insert that guarantees a snug and secure fit which adapts to the shape of every mum, and it will not deform however often you use it. The exclusive internal padding and the "Miracle Middle Insert" guarantee that Boppy will keep its shape over time."
This pillow comes in so many different styles as well there is something for everyone. You can buy the Boppy Nursing Pillow in it's Naked form (without a slipcover) and purchase the slipcover of your choice to go with it so you're not restricted by the Boppy Nursing Pillows that are sold with the slipcover. There are some very beautiful Boppy Heirloom Pillows that are just gorgeous and more of a luxury to keep and pass down through generations.
For mums and mums to be who are right into following the Celebrity trends you'll love the Boppy Nursing Pillow as Jessica Alba bought one recently for her second child. This does prove it's a lovely product if even celebs are buying it.
You can purchase your very own Boppy Nursing Pillow from Amazon RRP £49.99 however you know what Amazon is like. There's always a deal or two to be had, so keep an eye out for a bargain.
Overall a brilliant pillow that gives good quality support and feels soft but firm to keep your baby safe, snug and in place for feeding. The pricing on this is fair as it's around this sort of price you would expect to pay for a good quality nursing pillow and since it has the middle miracle insert it won't lose it’s shape so should last for generations to come! This will indeed save you money in the long run.
