I was extremely excited when I pulled my breastfeeding pillow out of its bag! It came in a bag with handles which I think is great so I can easily and safely take it to the hospital with me! The first thing I noticed was the fabric! It is covered in a super soft minky fabric that I know is going to be very soothing to our new little one! The breathable mesh cover was the second thing I noticed. With my girls it was hard to have privacy when nursing because neither of them liked their heads covered, to be honest, I didn’t like them to be covered either. I know it isn’t easy to breathe with your head under a blanket, I could only imagine what it would be like to try to suck, swallow and breathe with very little air movement. I am sure that our new baby will have a much easier time with the mesh privacy cover on the San Diego Bebe nursing pillow and it is removable so when I’m at home I can roll it up and tuck it away!
With my first pregnancy I made my own nursing pillow. It worked out fine, it was all I had ever used so I didn’t know anything else. I can tell you that it didn’t have the angled surface. I think that if I had this nursing pillow back then I wouldn’t have had to deal the latching issues as much. It took a long time to get a good position on my homemade pillow. I am really looking forward to that feature with this baby. It also didn’t have the pockets on the side. I can conveniently tuck away some nipple cream or extra nursing pads in one and hold my water bottle or burp cloth in another!
I tested out the angle, back pillow and privacy cover with my 22 month old to show it in use. She stopped nursing about 4 months ago (shortly after we found out we are pregnant, per doctors orders) but of course I took advantage of some cuddle time! The angle put her right where she needed to be if she were nursing! I the back pillow helped give me some support to keep my posture in position which also helped her to a good latch position. However, I don’t think I will need it all the time. The back support can also be placed in the cut out to create a seat or booster and it velcros into place there. I thought she would fight the cover but I told her she was hiding and she giggled and really had no problem with it. I could still see her too which is very important to me. You can even see her peeking out on the side a little in the pictures.
Overall this is the best nursing pillow I have ever used! Usually at this point I would address anything I would change about the product I reviewed but I really can’t think of anything I would change! I didn’t even mention the fact that it is recyclable! It contains no foam, glue, lead or phthalates! It is made from 100% virgin polyfiber. You won’t find another like it anywhere!
