I purchased the pillow for my daughter-in-law the second day I visited her in the hospital on the birth of my first grandchild. The proud parents had discussed purchasing one before my grandson's birth, but when I saw how useful it was at the hospital it was an easy purchase on Amazon.com. It is perfect for nursing mothers and for anyone else who wants to sit with a newborn for extended time. The pillow is very supportive and yet incredibly soft. It also happens to fit in perfectly with the jungle theme of my grandson's bedroom! Love it! Daughter-in-law loves it!
