The team at Comfort & Harmony™, a leader in nurturing baby products, welcomes all the new babies born this spring. Breastfeeding has numerous benefits and the gift of a mombo™ nursing pillow can help the moms who choose to nurse their newborns.
“Breastfeeding is said to have many benefits for both the child and the mother. The mombo can make the feeding experience easier,” said Alyson Grubard, Director of Brand Management and Licensing for Kids II®, the parent company of Comfort & Harmony.
According to the experts at WebMD, breast milk is believed to have the perfect mix of vitamins, protein, and fat for growing infants. Breast milk has been linked to a reduction in respiratory illnesses, ear infections, and bouts of diarrhea. It may also lower the risk of a child having asthma or allergies.
For nursing mothers, the benefits may include a lower risk of certain health problems, such as type 2 diabetes, breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Breastfeeding can also help speed post-pregnancy weight loss, said WebMD.
While breastfeeding has numerous benefits, however, it can also have many challenges. Comfort & Harmony developed the mombo nursing pillow to help prevent nursing problems and make the whole experience more comfortable – and less stressful – for mom and baby. Moms using mombo can easily hold a baby in the proper position for feeding.
The skin-to-skin contact during breastfeeding helps a mom bond with her baby and makes her child feel more secure. To maximize the physical closeness, the mombo breastfeeding pillow has a unique shape in addition to a two-sided design called Firm2Soft™. The firm side provides support for both baby and mom. The other side of the pillow is the soft side. It is designed for baby lounging, tummy time and sitting up.
Mombo is the only two-sided nursing pillow with a soothing vibration feature.
A diverse assortment of slipcovers allows the mombo pillow to be color-coordinated and customized. Designs range from solid colors to patterns.
Mombo nursing pillows are available at Babies “R” Us, a carrier of Kids II brands since 1992. Babies “R” Us was also the exclusive launch partner for the introduction of the mombo nursing pillow in 2012.
Beyond pillows, Kids II designs, markets and distributes more than 400 unique baby and infant products. Babies “R” Us carries all seven brands under the Kids II corporate umbrella, including Bright Starts™, Ingenuity™, Comfort & Harmony™, Disney Baby™, Baby Einstein™, Oball™ and Taggies™.
