If you’re looking for a breastfeeding pillow, good luck. There’s no lack of options; on the contrary, you’re more likely to be overwheled by the sheer number of choices on the market. And every woman is different, so if you ask around, you’ll hear a dozen different opinions on the matter. So I don’t usually slow down when I see yet another breastfeeding pillow on display at a trade show.
But last month at the JPMA show, the CozyMe Pillow did catch my attention. Many of the pillows available offer the improvised benefit of providing some playtime support for developing infants. But the people who designed the CozyMe took a slightly different approach.
Realistically, a breastfeeding mother uses a pillow to raise up her baby, making it more comfortable to support the baby during feedings. The pillow doesn’t need to be any specific shape, necessarily, as long as it can accomplish that key task. So, the CozyMe pillow is designed to be a supportive pillow for babies – for tummy time, sitting up, playing, and, of course it also works well for nursing. The CozyMe comes with three components: the pillow, the wedge and the propup. There are many ways to configure these pieces to support a baby at virtually any stage of development.
As it turns out, I’m not the only one who likes these. Check out this rave review on About.com.
