beats the boppy but has room for improvement,
This review is from: The Nesting Pillow - Organic Nursing Pillow with Washable Slip Cover (Baby Product)
I was hesitant to purchase this pillow because of the cost but my boppy has been through three kids and was in bad shape so I started looking for a more natural alternative and found this. The quality is very, very good. It's made in the us and the workmanship is great, I can see it standing up to years and years of use. My only issue with the construction was the tag, it is a flat square tag sewn on to the top of the pillow, right where the baby's head rests. It only took a minute to get it off with a seam ripper but it would have been nice for it to be in another location.
Using the pillow is comfortable but there is a learning curve to it. I couldn't stand the pillow for the first few weeks but have now gotten the hang of it. At first the filling always seemed to shift away from me, leaving a gap between me and the pillow that couldn't be fixed without stopping nursing and rearranging everything. Now I have to remember to shift the filling towards me to before I start. I'm not sure if my pillow doesn't have enough filling but it seems like it could really benefit from more. I have to take a solid minute to arrange the filling before I start nursing and with all the filling at one end of the pillow the other side is totally flat so there is nowhere to rest my other arm. More filling would make this a five star product.
