There are a number of different styles of nursing pillows. Nursing pillows in general help new moms position their infants so they can latch on to the breast properly and receive the necessary milk and nutrients to support optimal health. Not all pillows are alike, and many are a matter of personal preference. Some pillows offer more support for twins, preemies, breast-feeding and bottle-feeding.
For example, my Brest Friend pillow, designed specifically for new moms, helps reduce colic and baby gas, acid reflux and helps support a healthier digestive system. This type of pillow is also excellent for mothers that have experienced C-sections and are healing from surgery. Additionally, other products offer wraparound designs, back rests and pockets, all while combining nursing covers and pillows into one simple, effective product.
Many nursing pillows offer adjustable straps, hypoallergenic materials and the cover can be removed for simple cleaning. Designed to help new moms and infants bond through the breastfeeding process, these innovative pillows are extremely helpful for ensuring that babies receive an adequate supply of milk, while embraced in soft comfort.
