Most new moms imagine that breastfeeding, a natural act, would be easy and automatic. Parents magazine and Comfort & Harmony™, the makers of the mombo™ breast feeding pillow, know feedings takes practice. Learning how to hold and support a new baby in a comfortable position requires coordination and patience.
Comfortable positions for breastfeeding are different for every mom and baby. To find the right one, moms are encouraged to try a number of different positions.
1. The Cradle. This position requires mom to sit and hold baby lengthwise across her abdomen. Mom’s elbow supports the baby’s head and her hand supports the baby’s bottom. Her other hand supports her breast.
2. The Cross Cradle. Baby needs to lie on her side, be well supported, and touching mom. Mom uses the opposite arm from the breast being nursed to support baby's body. Her hand supports baby’s head. Mom’s fingers support her breast. The mombo nursing pillow can make breastfeeding easier and more comfortable for moms and babies when it comes to supporting and positioning a child correctly.
3. Side-Lying Position. Mom needs to lie on her side with her back supported. Baby will lie on his side facing mom. Mom’s arm supports baby’s body, while her hand supports the head, bringing him towards the breast as both lie chest to chest.
4. The Football Hold. Baby is held at mom’s side face up and lengthwise, supported by a nursing pillow. Moms should use the arm on the side of the breast being used to support baby and guide the infant’s head.
The mombo nursing pillow provides unique support for breastfeeding. Its Firm2Soft™ design features two sides that offer unique experiences. The firm side provides extra support for comfort while breastfeeding. The soft side of the pillow can be used for lounging, tummy time and as help for baby when she or he begins to sit up. Unlike any other nursing pillow on the market, mombo comes with a removable vibration unit to soothe baby.
