Feeding pillow – how to choose, what to pay attention to when buying.
A nursing pillow makes a mom’s life much easier when it comes to latching on to her baby. You need to take into account that you will be feeding in different positions. You do not yet know which position is best for you – this will become clear when your baby arrives. If you have had a caesarean section, you will need to protect the scar – the pressure from the baby will cause you discomfort or even pain.
This pillow may also have other functions, such as a cradle for your baby, a backrest when your baby is sitting up, or a tummy support when your baby is crawling.
You should choose a pillow that is large, optimally stuffed and of an adequate height. Pay attention to the filling material. Styrofoam makes a loud rustling sound, which may disturb you, and it sometimes slips from underneath your baby to the ends of the pillow where it is least needed. Styrofoam filling wears out over time and requires additional filling. If there is too much, it will become too hard. Styrofoam does not let air through as well as silicone fibers. When deciding on a pillow with polystyrene filling, check whether it provides adequate cushioning and ventilation. A pillow with silicone fibers made of twisted silicone fibers is a safer choice – the fibers have an air channel inside, and the fibers themselves are twisted into small springs, which provide ventilation and resilience.
Positioning the baby on the pillow
When feeding, your baby should be positioned at a slight angle, with his head slightly higher than his tummy. The feeding pillow should make it much easier to achieve this position. We will be sure that food flows freely to the baby’s tummy, thanks to which it does not swallow a lot of air, which reduces the risk of colic, reflux, gas or ear infections.
We should also pay attention to whether the cover can be removed for washing. Various surprises may happen along the way and it should be washed from time to time. It would be good if the cover was made of stain-resistant material – there is always more work to do with taking it off and washing it, which you don’t always have time for while feeding and taking care of your baby. A better choice seems to be a removable cover, resistant to dirt and easy to clean.
What are the characteristics of the best pillows?
The best nursing pillow should fit snugly around your waist, allowing you to be fully occupied with your baby and feeding, rather than constantly adjusting it. You can opt for a pillow with fasteners, adjusters, velcro – this works well in situations where you have a feeding corner and everything is within easy reach. In everyday use, in the opinion of moms, they become unnecessary and inconvenient.
A very important advantage of the pillow is its solid construction. During feeding it needs to stay in the right place. If you reach for water, a diaper or tissues during feeding, it should sit firmly on your waist. When lying on your lap it will slide down, which will make it difficult for you to breastfeed your baby properly.
