Nursing pillows sit in your lap and wrap around your body, providing a stable and comfy surface to position your newborn at the breast. They also reduce neck, arm and back strain for you, which can help make nursing more enjoyable.
Do you really need a breastfeeding pillow?
Most mothers do not need nursing pillows. In fact, it is much easier to get a good latch without one! Laying your baby on the pillow can make it difficult for him to latch. This makes it more likely you will get sore nipples.
How long do you use nursing pillow?
If you enjoy using it, and it works well for you and your baby, you will be using the pillow until you’re finished breastfeeding. Keep this in mind when selecting your pillow. Some mothers only breastfeed for 3 or 4 months.
How can I breastfeed in public without a pillow?
Use the stroller frame now as a makeshift footstool to tilt your lap into a better position. Fold up your coat or sweater and rest it across your lap as a nursing pillow. If you still need more “lift,” try placing your diaper bag on your lap (or under your thigh), and place a blanket over that.
