New moms will be happy to know there are ways to increase the chances of a positive, successful breastfeeding experience.
(PRWEB) December 02, 2013
Breastfeeding concerns are shared by 92 percent of mothers according to a new study published online September 23 in Pediatrics and reported on by Fox News (9.24.13). Common worries during their child’s first two months of life included not making enough milk and the infant not latching correctly. One solution to a number of breastfeeding problems is to use a breast feeding pillow like the mombo™ from Comfort & Harmony™.
“Breastfeeding can definitely be challenging, but the benefits of health and bonding really outweigh the challenges,” said Kyra Mitchell Lewis, Senior Marketing Communications Manager at Kids II®, the parent company of Comfort & Harmony.
Because of the difficulties they encountered during breastfeeding, 20 to 50 percent of mothers stopped nursing altogether or started adding formula to the baby’s diet sooner than they had planned to do, reported Fox News.
“New moms will be happy to know there are ways to increase the chances of a positive, successful breastfeeding experience,” said Lewis.
The mombo nursing pillow is a great answer to breastfeeding problems. It supports mom and baby with its unique two-sided design, Firm2Soft™. The firm side of the pillow offers height and support while baby is breastfeeding. This eliminates the need for extra pillows beneath the nursing pillows. The soft, cushioned side of the pillow is ideal for lounging, tummy time or for sitting up. Unlike any other nursing pillow on the market, mombo comes with a removable vibration unit.
The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of a baby’s life. Until the age of two, children should be breastfed with the addition of appropriate foods.
“Breastfeeding concerns are common and can often be resolved,” said Lewis. “Kids II is proud to be part of the solution.”
