When I was breastfeeding E, I really wanted a decent breastfeeding cushion, but time passed and by the time I found one I liked I had managed for so long that I was coming to the end of breastfeeding. I was sent a Theraline Original Maternity and Nursing pillow to review a few weeks ago, and I’ve since been using it daily – as a pregnancy pillow!
The joy of the Theraline pillow is it’s versatility, I can use it to sit up in bed, extra support while watching tv, to take the weight of my hip in bed – by laying on my side and resting my knee on it, or popping it behind me to prevent me from rolling onto my back – which I seem to do frequently now I’m ‘not supposed to..!’.
Here’s a short video showing you how versatile, and supportive the pillow is both in pregnancy and during nursing;
So, what were my thoughts? As a pregnancy pillow, I love it, I can’t imagine how I managed without it! The pillow is full of mini beads which are soft, and seem to mould around your shape, sitting up in bed there is no more fussing to get the pillows comfortable behind my head, I just pop the Theraline pillow behind me, and can comfortably (no aching neck!) sit to read or drink tea! I have noticed the boys – especially my three year old, use it to sit supported watching cartoons which is very sweet, and I think a huge recommendation for how comfortable it is!
As you can see I have quite a neutral coloured cover, but there are plenty of cover designs to select from the very plain to the very exotic! The cover is machine washable, and super soft to touch!
I can’t obviously comment about how it worked from a breastfeeding point of view yet, but I can already see that I would be comfortable and it would support baby well so I’m sure it will be a marvellous aid to breastfeeding! Priced at £44.95 I think the Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow is a great price, it has already had plenty of use and I want to take it with me for the birth!
