I’ve been breastfeeding on and off for the last 2.5 years and even now I love to review products that make breastfeeding easier. I was recently given the opportunity to review the Theraline Original Maternity and Nursing Pillow and as Little Man is getting heavier by the day I thought the added support might be useful.
The Theraline Pillow is huge – It arrived squished into a really useful storage bag but sprung out to such a great size, it’s fantastic! It’s just short of two metres long which is the perfect size – I wish I had this pillow during my pregnancy, the size of it would be great to mould around your bump and along the length of you at night or even just to get comfortable on the sofa. As it is, I am using it now to keep me comfortable whilst feeding LM.
The Theraline Pillow moulds to me and Little Man whilst I’m feeding him making us both comfortable, supporting Little Man’s weight and stopping me from hunching over him like I normally would when he’s resting on my lap. The Theraline Maternity & Nursing Pillow is filled with beads that are fine like sand making it really soft and easy to change it’s position.
Included with the Theraline Maternity & Nursing Pillow is a 100% cotton cover that adds to the durability of the pillow. The cover is easy to take off and put back on for washing and the actual Theraline Pillow is also machine washable as well as being anti allergenic and breathable.
I didn’t know how useful this pillow would be at our stage of breastfeeding but I have found it invaluable. Little Man is very heavy now and it does get hard to support his weight whilst feeding without compromising my posture and ultimately giving me back ache. I’ve also used the pillow as a barrier at the edge of the bed when we’re co-sleeping to stop him rolling off in the night – he’s never rolled and tends to sleep close to me but having the pillow there definitely puts my mind at rest. The pillow filling helps the pillow stay firmly in place and doesn’t move easily like a normal pillow would.
I would definitely recommend the Theraline Maternity & Nursing Pillow to any pregnant woman – It would be a great investment from early in pregnancy all the way through nursing and beyond – LP loves to lounge on the cushion on our bed so I’m sure even when Little Man has finished nursing there will be a use for the Theraline Pillow! It’s not often that you can buy a products that will last you such a long time and the Theraline Pillow is definitely a versatile product that will stand the test of time.
The Theraline Original Maternity & Nursing Cushion has an RRP of £44.95.
