I hope you don’t groan when Whiny Wednesdays come around? When I started this blog, I had 0 kids and this column wasn’t even thought up yet. Then once I had little C., I promised both myself and you this column would be just that. A place where I can talk about my new mom experiences and some of the products I’m loving at the moment. Now, that I’m pregnant with baby #2, I plan to keep it just that. I don’t ever wanna take over my love for shoes, but it’s a balance because I still want to communicate the other side of my life, and that’s my mom role to my kids. (eek, that’s plural now!)
So without further ado, today’s post is about the lovely topic of nursing. Well, not really. It’s about how gosh darn cute my new nursing pillow is. Hey, you had to have known. I’m pretty thrilled about Dr. Brown’s innovative Gia pillow. Why? Because besides mine being pink with cute lil’ elephants all over it (matches the nursery pink/gray scheme to. a. tee), it’s got an incline for baby to reduce those horrible reflux symptoms when feeding. It’s even much wider, and I’ve noticed, much softer than others. It’s shaped like a moon, and it’s taller, thicker and sturdier than any other I’ve owned. After all, it was designed by a lactation consultant. I think I’m going to like the incline since the one I used with little C. was flat, making the positioning a little bit harder.
You can wash the cover, but you can also use it without (you know, in case you haven’t had time to get it out of the washing machine). I’m pretty excited to give it a try come February because any product to help ease the nursing transition (hey, it ain’t easy…), is my cup of tea. It retails around $30, and for now, sits very lovely in our new recliner (see the polka-dots I added on the wall this weekend?). I can’t wait to let you know how it goes!
