Pillows That Comfort
"Although a nursing pillow is not necessary, I find moms profit from back and arm support while they are learning latch-on and positioning in the beginning," says Brown.
"I have used a nursing pillow everyday since I returned from the hospital. I found it indispensable in the early months, when Lily was nursing around the clock, because nursing pillows support the arms so well," adds Pinson.
There is a wide variety of pillows available for breastfeeding moms. Some of the more popular pillows include Boppy®, My Brest Friend® Pillow, and The Natural Boost. "I used My Breast Friend Pillow because I found that it offered more support than other brands out there, says Ford. "Since then I have purchased it as a gift for several of my friends and they loved it as well."
