My first impression, right out of the box, was pure excitement. I love the brightly colored bird pattern of the waterproof fabric, as does my daughter. The shape looked fun in general. I could not wait to try it out with my 7 month old daughter.
My first use of the pillow was FANTASTIC and it has held up to that standard with each successive use. Once I was set up with the back support, which is great, we got right to it. The pillow positioned her well and right at the breast. This left me hands free and allowed her the opportunity to stretch out and relax while nursing. She is a very distracted eater right now, and I think this allows her to fidget but still focus on nursing, which is a plus for this momma. When she falls asleep while nursing, she looks so comfortable and relaxed, it’s hard to move her. The fabric does seem to add some heat for her when she nurses for longer periods of time, especially right before bed. I’m sure this is likely due to the waterproof fabric and could possibly be remedied by the use of a cover. The pillow is also fantastic for all to lounge on. We have all used it and find it very comfortable. I wish there was an adult sized one to lay in. Overall, I am in LOVE with this pillow and will recommend it to anyone and everyone I know.
