Congrats to our very fabulous food and fitness writer Jules, who welcomed son, Will, last month. Mom and baby are doing well and today Jules recommends a supportive solution for nursing moms: the Cuddoozle Nursing Pillow. Read on for Jules's review, as well as to learn how to win a Cuddoozle Nursing Pillow!
“As a new mom, breastfeeding has been – blessedly – less of a challenge than I heard it might be. On the other hand, the late night feedings, the marathon feedings, and the crying baby needing his feedings are much more of a challenge. Plus, early on I experienced neck and back pain during feedings and was very much in need of support.
Luckily, there’s a solution – at least to handle the neck and back pain – in the Cuddoozle Nursing Pillow ($64 at Cuddoozle). This pillow offers the support I need during the frantic feedings of a fussy baby, and for my aching neck, thanks to its unique construction. First, compared to some popular nursing pillows on the market, the Cuddoozle feels sturdier. Second, it’s flat, which matters because it means my son stays put once we get in position, rather than flipping around on the other, rounder ones. And third, despite the previously described qualities which may make it sound a little shelf-like, the pillow actually allows for easy comfort for both mom and baby due to three layers of memory foam. Also included is a smaller pillow to help make other positional adjustments (e.g., elevating baby’s head, providing an arm, back, or head rest).
Aside from the ergonomics, the Cuddoozle is offered in several cute fabric prints, and is great for new moms who no doubt are concerned about the germ factor. The pillow has a removable outer cover, but the non-removable inner cover – which protects the memory foam pillow – is anti-mite, anti-dust, anti-microbial, hypoallergenic, and waterproof; ideal for the messy stains that are guaranteed with infants.”
