I planned all along on nursing Tessa, so in anticipation of that I bought a breastfeeding pillow. Because I didn’t really know what I was looking for, I bought the first one I saw at Wal-Mart. It ended up being a great pillow for between my knees or under my tummy while trying to sleep during my third trimester, but it was a terrible nursing pillow because it was way too small.
Luckily for me, when I was in the post-partum ward at the hospital, they handed me a Baby Buddy. It was perfect for keeping Tessa at the right height for cross-cradle or football hold and I loved it so much that we got one to use at home from E-Children.
We used it for tummy time as well as nursing, and it was large enough that I could also easily have my Kindle on there at the same time as the baby. Before travelling to Ontario for a month, I even had a second one shipped out to my parents’ house so I wouldn’t have to go without.
Tessa’s nine and a half months old and going strong with nursing, and the Baby Buddy still keeps her at the right height. If you’re planning on nursing, I highly recommend getting a Baby Buddy.
