Even though I breastfed little man, it was about 3 years ago! I just took a breastfeeding class at our midwife's office and it was a great refresher course! There are so many things that I had forgotten about. One thing that our teacher talked a great deal about was creating the best breastfeeding environment possible. There can be plenty of hurdles when it comes to breastfeeding that you often have no control over, so creating a calm environment and getting things together that make breastfeeding easy, convenient and comfortable are key to a successful breastfeeding experience. One of the key breastfeeding pieces that makes nursing easier and more comfortable is a good nursing pillow.

Who knew other brands of nursing pillows weren't green or eco-friendly? I had no idea! I always thought that they were just cotton stuffed into a half doughnut form. But it turns out that there is a huge difference in the make-up and design of the San Diego Bebe Eco-Nursing Pillow vs the other nursing pillows on the market. The San Diego Bebe Eco-Nursing Pillow is filled with a "patented eco-fiber that is hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, non-flammable (no fire-retardant chemical additives), and is recyclable, odor-free, glue-free, foam-free, lead-free and Phthalate-free." I didn't know that other companies even put those things in nursing pillows...I mean, it's a pillow! It makes me feel so much better knowing that our new little baby is going to be snuggling up close to me and nursing on a safe and eco-friendly nursing pillow.
I was sent the San Diego Bebe Eco-Nursing Pillow in Butter. I love the soft yellow minky fabric and it matches our new little baby's room! As soon as I took the pillow out of it's bag, I immediately knew I would love it! It had so many features that I always thought were lacking in my previous nursing pillow. My two favorite features are definitely the back pillow and the dual pockets. When I was nursing little man, I had a hard time making sure that I was sitting up properly. I would often realize that I was slouching and that usually led to difficulties with latch or comfort on my back and neck. Pockets were always something I wished I had with my previous nursing pillow too! It is perfect for keeping a bottle of water, snacks and my phone within reach. I had the hardest time eating enough food and drinking enough water- partially because I would sit down to nurse and realize that everything I needed was too far from my reach and I didn't have anywhere to keep it stored for handy access.

I also really love how thick the pillow is. I think that this feature paired with the bolster along the edge is the perfect support for little babies. The thickness is great for me, because I never felt that my previous nursing pillow could keep little man up high enough. I felt like I needed to bump it up with extra pillows to keep him close to me. The thickness of the San Diego Bebe Eco-Nursing Pillow is much better and it has the perfect firmness to keep baby steady. The last feature that I ended up loving more than I thought I would was the privacy cover. I really like that it is detachable, for when I am at home and don't need the extra privacy. But, when I have friends or family over or am out somewhere, I love that it is such a secure fit (it's not sliding off or getting pushed aside by baby) and it is a nice breathable material. I feel like San Diego Bebe listened in on moms and their complaints with big name nursing pillows and then created their nursing pillows to answer those concerns!
