Make Nursing More Comfortable - Born Free Bliss Nursing Pillow ~Review

Posted by Erin K. | Thursday, March 14, 2013

I remember when my son was born, it seemed like all he did was eat and sleep.  I used one of the popular nursing pillows, but still found that my my back and neck were hurting much more than usual because of all the time I spent hunched over, gazing at my newborn.  Although the nursing pillow I used offered some support, it wasn't high enough for me to avoid slouching.  So Born Free worked with lactation consultants to design a nursing pillow that would take the strain off a woman's body with the Born Free Bliss Nursing Pillow.  

The height of the bliss feeding pillow is adjustable, so it's great for nursing children of any age.  The removable bottom pillow is a unique feature that positions baby at an incline for better digestion.  This 3-tiered pillow is the first of it's kind, making it a new must-have for breastfeeding moms.  
The pillow comes in white, but the Bliss Feeding Deluxe Pillow Covers come in a variety of stylish colors and patterns and are easy to velcro onto the pillow.  Covers are machine washable and will help protect your Bliss Nursing Pillow from any drool and infant spit-ups.  
Born Free is a company developed by three concerned dads in 1996 who were pioneers in making baby products without the harmful chemicals BPA and PVC.  In 2011, Born Free was acquired by Summer Infant and they are still developing products that are allowing moms to do what they do best - nurture their babies.  

When my pillow arrived, I unzipped the clear, plastic storage bag it comes in and I velcroed the covers into place.  Since my son is 13 months old, I tried the pillow using just 1 tier for support.  Two days a week I also watch a 4 month old, so I used the pillow with 2 tiers when feeding him his bottle.  

When I first saw the pillow, I thought that it was much larger than my other nursing pillows so I wondered if I'd like it.  However, the fact that it is taller than other nursing pillows, is precisely what makes it more comfortable and takes the strain off your back and neck.  My arms were able to relax because I wasn't straining to hold the child. I was able to sit up straight and just use my hands to keep the child in place because I wasn't using my back, neck or arm muscles to do it like I normally do. 

I also loved the deluxe cover!  Personally, I thought the design was great and I appreciated that it wasn't covered in monkeys or cartoon characters.  Since I often nurse my son in our living room, I liked having a pillow that looked stylish and suited my tastes.  I have plenty of kid stuff in my home at the moment, so I liked feeling like this nursing pillow was for me.  

Key Features:
  • At the first stage, mom uses the Feeding Pillow, Nurture Boost, and a newborn mat—this slightly firmer surface helps baby stay awake while feeding. 
  • For the second stage, mom uses the Feeding Pillow and Nurture Boost—a small pillow that allows you to give baby just that perfect incline for feeding. And even better: it can be used on the left or right to accommodate your feeding needs. 
  • By the third stage, growing babies can use the Feeding Pillow on its own. This contoured pillow offers the comfort of just-right height for mom and baby during feeding.
  • For easier care, a selection of machine-washable slip covers and deluxe covers are also available (sold separately).
I actually stopped using a nursing pillow months ago because I thought it was only important to do so with a new baby, but after trying the Born Free Bliss Nursing Pillow I am going to continue using it.  Since it is designed to adapt along with my growing baby, I can use it as long as I continue to breastfeed.

    They can be bought from multiple places and you can save a great deal of your money by
    purchasing in bulk rather than purchasing each flip flop separately.
    If  you are not comfortable with this then make sure
    you have enough money saved up for hotels, motels, are hostels.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?

    I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100%
    sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Due to fear of being humiliated by your stained teeth,
    there's a chance you'd stay away from people. Although teeth whitening has become extremely popular masny people are still unaware of the producdts and procedures that are available.
    But there is a single drawback behind the premium version.
