When you consider how much time you’ll be spending nursing your little one, you’ll want to make sure you’re comfortable. While a nursing pillow isn’t required for your nursing (or bottle feeding!) journey, it will definitely make it more enjoyable for both you and baby.
Nursing Pillows support both caregiver and baby by taking the pressure off your back and safely placing the baby in a healthy position for their developing body.
Importance of Back Health
Why is back health so important? For starters, if you’ve ever had back pain, you know it can be extremely uncomfortable. It can affect the way you walk, sit, stand, and so many aspects of your life. As parents, our backs are particularly affected by the daily jobs of parenting. From carrying your little one, to picking them up and down, to laying them down in a crib, to sitting on the floor to build blocks…it’s not uncommon to hear parents talking about how their back hurts!
Your spine is, quite literally, the backbone of your ability to move, sleep and function properly. So we need to take care of it!
But we don’t just need to take care of our backs. We need to look after our children’s as well. In those early months that you are spending hours upon hours nursing, your infant’s body is still developing. The more you can place them in ergonomically correct positions, the more likely they are to develop their neck, back, and hips properly.
