With the Bear, I used a nursing pillow all the way through until he weaned. I suffer from back problems, and using a nursing pillow greatly relieves the stress on my back that breastfeeding can bring. I use one every time I nurse at home, and take it with me when I travel. The only time I don’t use one is if I’m out running errands or in public.
What makes the Mombo different from other nursing pillows? The Mombo has two sides, a firmer side and a softer side. We prefer the softer side, but I think the firmer side would be ideal with a newborn. The Mombo also comes with a battery operated vibrating insert that soothes my sweet girl gently. I’ve found that for my sometimes distracted nurser, the vibration helps her to concentrate and eat rather than pulling off and looking around. Hallelujah!
The pillow and cover are very well made, and the cover is super soft and easily comes off to wash. If you have a spit up queen like I do, easy washing is key. I love the gender neutral Mosaic Moonlight cover, but there are several cover options including gender specific ones to choose from.
Overall we really like our Mombo pillow. The only negative I could find would be the size might be an issue for plus size mamas. The angle of the pillow fits snuggle and comfortably for me and keeps my girl in place when she’s lounging, but might fit a plus size mama a bit too tight. I don’t know for sure, but it is something to keep in mind.
Probably my favorite aspect of the Mombo is that it doubles as a truly supportive lounger. The Pearl girl is still a supported sitter at 4 1/2 months, and she was able to sit comfortably in the Mombo as you can see below. Isn’t she the cutest?!
The Mombo is available at Target and retails for $29-39, depending on the cover. Extra covers are $12.99. Find your Mombo Nursing Pillow
