Each and everyday I am so thankful for being able to be home with Sutton. I am blessed to have a job that allows me to work from home. Motherhood has been quite the journey thus far. Sutton is almost 6 months and each day I learn something new with her. We are both growing together, learning each other, and new things; it’s quite amazing.
One of the most rewarding and most difficult things I have done since becoming a mother is breastfeeding. As the saying goes, “good things don’t come easy” and that is true! I think all moms can agree, it can be a rocky start. I relied on family, friends and an amazing book to help when I started to question things or it got tough. Having a good nursing pillow is huge for me. I have tried a couple different versions of pillows and just recently tried the Bébé au Lait nursing pillow and it’s night and day difference. The Bébé au Lait pillow gives the option of a flat, firmer surface or flip it for a softer surface. I prefer more of a firm surface, I have found that works best for Sutton and myself. The height of the pillow promotes a better latch and I noticed that right from the start. The thing I love about it best is that I am able to support Sutton more at a 45 degree angle which help with her reflux that causes her tummy to hurt when she feeds. It also has a two sided pocket, where I keep burp clothes and breast pads, so convenient! I also throw my phone in there. I cannot tell you have many times I loose my phone during feedings. Lastly, it has a strap that you can place around your waist to keep the pillow in place. This pillow was designed by a nursing mom and you can definitely tell that.
I am so happy that Bébé au Lait gave me the opportunity to try out this pillow. I absolutely love it! Any questions, feel free to email or connect on instagram!
