I'm nursing my second child now and things are a little different this time around. Isn't that just the way it goes? You think "Hey I've done this once already! Its going to be so easy this time!" Ummm, NOPE! This time around, my son was an amazing champ latching on Properly the very first time! WooHoo! But I found that I needed a bit more support than last time. You know, the kind of support that our poor, not the same size, not in the same spot, boobies need! Yeah, I said it! LOL!
I have my 4 year old daughter to take care of too! With the second child, there is more to do at one time. You have to sometimes eat while nursing, in my case brush long blond hair, play with dolls or read a book. I needed my hands free. At least one! So that meant I needed support for the breast he was nursing from so i didnt have to hold it. But I never found a pillow that supported just the breast. There are "position" Pillows and the like but seriously, I knew that I needed something different I just didnt know what. I had never seen something JUST for breast support. I needed a helper to help me!
Well Hello Cushie Pushie Breast Support Pillow!
I have had the great pleasure to try out Cushie Pushie Nursing Pillows and The result is, I love 'em! They are just the right size, Comfy and just super cute! See, They are designed to be placed under the Breast that you are nursing off of, so that it supports and lifts leaving your hand free to do other things! Now as all us moms know, that is just what we need!
Now just look at how cute that is! And its got just the right combination of softness and firmness.
They come in super cute patterns and yes, even organic ones are available! Here are just a few of them:
|Chocolate Cupcake Flannel|
|Polka Dots on White|
I think one of the things I like the most about this is the fact that the Creator, Lois Whittaker, had the same problems I was talking about! This is the whole reason Cushie Pushie exists!
Here is a little bit more about the pillow from her site:
"The Cushie Pushie Breastfeeding Pillow is made for breastfeeding mothers by a mother. It is a pillow designed to help you gain the correct breast position for easier breastfeeding. This breastfeeding pillow pushes your breast upward in order to allow easy latching by your nursing baby, while maintaining correct positioning throughout the feeding. By keeping the breast pushed up, it also frees one of your hands from continually holding your breast while breastfeeding. This is particular helpful if you are busy breastfeeding mom who is continually multi-tasking, even while nursing. And who isn't?"
Now thats What I'm Talking about! A REAL mom with REAL problems who came up with a REAL CUTE SOLUTION! (And just so I can be true to my form, be warned that i'm about to go off in a slightly random but still related to the subject direction) This is what I love about mom products. They take a real problem that the big companies dont think they have a big enough market to make money and they come up with a solution. See, While im sure the moms would love to make money off the products they come up with, the first thing they want to do is help other moms so they dont have to, well have a problem! Their main goal is to help. Help the first time moms. Help the "seasoned" moms. They are doing what they do so they can help. Now, i'm not sure about you but I would rather do my business with someone who really cares. And I'm not saying that purchasing something from a "Mom" business will cost more but some times it does and sometimes the items are surprisingly affordable! The Cushie Pushie Breast Support Pillow is so affordable. And She dosent just make the Pillows. Here are just a few things:
|This has to be my favorite thing!||I will be ordering this in the tote bag!|
