I'm a Mother of two children, ages 8 and 6. When I was an expecting my firstborn a friend of mine kindly took me to BabiesRUS and gave me the lowdown on what to put on my baby registry and what not to put on my baby registry. I pay it forward now to all my expecting friends with a "tell it like it is" trip to BabiesRUS.
One of the must have items on my baby registry list was a breastfeeding pillow. I was lucky to be able to breastfeed my babies past the 6 month stage and the breastfeeding pillow was one of my best friends during those months and especially in the middle of night when there is not a sound in the world except your precious little one snuggled closely. A breastfeeding pillow allows a firm surface to lay your baby on while feeding. It is a back saver for you but not too soft that baby sinks into the pillow. I also brought another baby pillow (infant positioner) to prop up the baby as the breastfeeding pillow was a little too hard for casual lounging. After having the second baby 21 months later, I realized that there were a lot of baby things that I didn't need or didn't have room for as toddler toys for baby # 1 started to fill the house. But I needed both the nursing pillow and the infant positioner pillow.
The Mombo nursing pillows seems to have the best of both worlds for Moms and babies alike. It is a nursing pillow with 2 sides; 1 side is firm for feeding and the other side is soft for lounging. The Mombo pillow would most definetely save you money instead of buying two pillows and also a space saver as it is 2 pillows in 1. Just becuse you will be saving money doesn't mean you will skimp on quality for your precious bundle of joy. The Mombo pillow is made to a high quality and the pillow just feels right for nursing and lounging. Where was the Mombo when I was nursing?
The washable slipcovers which are sold separately are so cute, especially the deluxe versions which come in modern patterns on one side and premium plush fabric on the other. Now why don't they make adult bedding just like that?
There is one more feature that will definetely have you running to the store for a Mombo pillow. The Mombo pillow comes with a removable vibration unit. My babies loved their vibrating packnplay and baby bouncer, the reason is because the vibration reminds them of being in the womb. A happy baby equals a happy mom.
My friend is expecting her baby in a few months so the Mombo pillow will be wrapped up nicely all ready for her baby shower. You'll find the Mombo pillows at BabiesRUS - be sure to check out all the cute slipcover designs. Isn't this Deluxe Butterfly Whispers cover just darling and for all you mom's out there the taggies cover is ingenious! My babies loved their taggies blanket!
