The basics of prop­er feed­ing of young moth­ers are taught both in cours­es for preg­nant women and in the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal, dur­ing the first appli­ca­tions. Those who have already known the joy of moth­er­hood know that the cor­rect posi­tion of the baby in the process of feed­ing plays an impor­tant role.

Why is it better to feed newborns while sitting?

One of the most impor­tant stages of edu­ca­tion, care and com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the baby at an ear­ly age is breast­feed­ing. About uncon­di­tion­al ben­e­fits such nat­ur­al feed­ing is said by all neona­tol­o­gists and pedi­a­tri­cians. It is no coin­ci­dence that in order to restore psy­cho­log­i­cal bal­ance and estab­lish close con­tact between moth­er and child, a new­born is applied to the chest while still in the deliv­ery room.

There are many posi­tions for feed­ing a baby, they are not cho­sen ran­dom­ly, it all depends on the inten­si­ty of milk pro­duc­tion, the size of the breasts and nip­ples, the age of the child and even the time of day. How­ev­er, the so-called “cra­dle” posi­tion remains the most pop­u­lar and most com­fort­able. Dur­ing feed­ing, the moth­er sits, lean­ing her back on the back of a chair or sofa, the baby lies hor­i­zon­tal­ly in her arms, turn­ing her tum­my to the moth­er’s body. This posi­tion reduces the load on the spine of an adult and pro­vides com­fort to the child.

Help and Support

In infan­cy, chil­dren grow by leaps and bounds. They also eat very often. With­in a month, a moth­er may feel that her baby has notice­ably gained weight and it is becom­ing more and more dif­fi­cult to keep her on weight while eat­ing. In addi­tion, since the grow­ing body needs more and more milk every time, the “meal” time also increas­es. In this case, a spe­cial pil­low for feed­ing will become an indis­pens­able assis­tant for young par­ents. It will ensure the cor­rect posi­tion of the child’s body and reduce the load on the lum­bar and tho­racic spine of a woman.

It should be not­ed that the pil­lows pre­sent­ed in the Dream­catch­er online store are very com­pact, so you can take them with you to vis­it and to the clin­ic, on long trips and even for a walk.

There are two main types of these acces­sories on the mar­ket:

  • fixed at the waist, thanks to a con­ve­nient boomerang shape and ties on the pil­low­case;
  • cush­ions with­out fix­a­tion, with an addi­tion­al cush­ion that allows you to change the angle of the sur­face.
  • Both options are equal­ly con­ve­nient and in demand. And yet, there are cer­tain nuances that will help you choose a nurs­ing pil­low that is ide­al for you.

Tips for new parents

When decid­ing to buy a nurs­ing pil­low, you should pay atten­tion to some impor­tant nuances:

  • If the mam­ma­ry glands are high and the dis­tance from the knees to the nip­ples in a sit­ting posi­tion is large enough, you need to choose a larg­er pil­low with a high base.
  • For over­weight women, the best option may be a feed­ing pil­low “Moth­er’s Joy”. It is not fixed at the waist, but sim­ply fits on the knees. If nec­es­sary, a small stan­dard pil­low that comes with the kit is placed under the main acces­so­ry from the side of the baby’s head.
  • The choice of col­ors and design is prac­ti­cal­ly unlim­it­ed, in the cat­a­log you can pick up charm­ing options for pink, cream, lilac, blue, peach, white and light green. All of them are dec­o­rat­ed with soft lace and cozy appliqués.
  • The pil­low mate­r­i­al should be as safe and easy to clean as pos­si­ble, because babies can spit up milk dur­ing feed­ing.

What should a nursing pillow be made of?

  1. Since we are talk­ing about prod­ucts for infants, the issue of qual­i­ty should come first. Par­tic­u­lar atten­tion should be paid to the mate­r­i­al of the case. It is best if it is hypoal­ler­genic cot­ton, which has good hygro­scop­ic­i­ty, is easy to wash and dries quick­ly.
  2. As a filler, safe, light and elas­tic syn­thet­ic mate­ri­als are suit­able — arti­fi­cial swan down, holofiber and poly­styrene gran­ules. They do not cake, do not absorb unpleas­ant odors, dry quick­ly and restore their orig­i­nal vol­ume. In addi­tion, dust mites, which are the cause of many dis­eases, will nev­er start inside such pil­lows.
  3. When choos­ing a decor for a nurs­ing pil­low, it is worth stop­ping at a sim­ple design that will not dis­tract the baby from eat­ing, a min­i­mum of lace and volu­mi­nous ele­ments, calm shades — this is what will make the process har­mo­nious and tru­ly use­ful for both moth­er and child.

Product Care!

Clean­ing and wash­ing every­thing that a baby comes into con­tact with in one way or anoth­er is a pre­req­ui­site for the hygiene of the first year of life. It is not enough to choose a pil­low for feed­ing, you must con­stant­ly keep it clean. To make the process has­sle-free, use our instruc­tions:

  1. If you’re feed­ing your baby with­out dia­pers, or sim­ply don’t have the time to do extra laun­dry, it’s best to cov­er your pil­low with a small, dis­pos­able dia­per. Its absorbent sur­face is soft and pleas­ant to the touch, besides it does not rus­tle and does not dis­tract from eat­ing. The use of oil­cloth is pos­si­ble, but it will attract the atten­tion of the baby, pre­vent­ing him from focus­ing on food.
  2. Light dirt on the sur­face of the cov­er can be removed with a mild solu­tion of baby pow­der or deter­gent. Sim­ply apply the solu­tion to the sur­face and wipe it vig­or­ous­ly, leave the prod­uct for a few min­utes, and then gen­tly go over with a clean, damp cloth. Dry the pil­low avoid­ing direct sun­light, which can dam­age the arti­fi­cial fill­ing.
  3. If the soil­ing is more seri­ous, the pil­low must be care­ful­ly washed in the wash­ing machine with­out the use of bleach­ing agents and pre-soak­ing. It is best to wash on a del­i­cate wash and straight­en the prod­uct prop­er­ly after spin­ning.
  4. Syn­thet­ic swan down and holofiber per­fect­ly tol­er­ate any num­ber of wash­es. With pil­lows filled with poly­styrene balls, spe­cial care is required, it is nec­es­sary to act care­ful­ly so that the dense mate­r­i­al is not dam­aged dur­ing wash­ing and the filler does not get into the drum of the machine.
