Whether breastfeeding or bottle feeding, one of the trickiest aspects of feeding a baby is positioning. With my two children, I had a well-known breastfeeding pillow, but it never seemed to get the baby in just the right position, especially during their first six months. So in addition to the breastfeeding pillow, I also had to use a combination of pillows and scrunched up blankets to get my baby in the ideal feeding position. Sound familiar? I started to wonder, what was the point of having a specialized breastfeeding pillow if I had to use a bunch of other items to make it work correctly? Then I came across the Nesting Pillow from Blessed Nest. The crescent shaped pillow is filled with buckwheat hulls which offer a number of unique benefits. First, the buckwheat filling is adjustable like a bean bag which allows you to create a sloped surface to allow your baby to eat comfortably with his head slightly raised. For breastfeeding moms, it also helps raise smaller babies up closer to the breast without having to use any supplemental pillows or blankets. The adjustable interior also allows the pillow to function as a sitting aide, playtime pillow, maternity pillow and even a great laptop pillow. Second, the buckwheat hulls allow for excellent air circulation which keeps your baby cool while eating or dozing. Finally, while the buckwheat hulls are adjustable, their pyramid shapes lock together to form a sturdy base and maintain the shape you form without slipping.
