American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win One of 5 Mombo Nursing Pillows

Every woman is sensitive about the topic of breastfeeding. “Breast is best” has been pushed so heavily that those who chose to formula-feed—or must, for any reason—get their back up, and understandably so. Guilting a woman into breastfeeding isn’t the way to go. But I stand back from the whole argument a little sheepish, because I’m one of those people who happened to love nursing my babies. I went back to work but pumped for a year each time, and kept on nursing at bedtime until they were each past their second birthday. That news usually makes people avert their eyes from me, like I’m kind of a freak. But those of us who love nursing have nothing to be ashamed of either.

Because I got so much out of the experience, I’m always eager to pass nursing tools on to other mamas. One of the things that can make a big difference is getting your baby in a comfortable position. Bright Starts, through their Comfort & Harmony line, created the mombo pillow to help new moms get feedings off to a great start. Some of their innovations: The mombo has one side that’s firm, for when you need to keep a newborn securely in place, and one side that’s softer, so a bigger baby can lounge comfortably. They also put a vibration feature in the pillow, because that can calm some infants. Finally, there are lots of slipcovers sold for the mombo, so you can always have one in the wash and one on the pillow. 

We’re partnering with Bright Starts to get five new moms a mombo pillow. Just having one doesn’t mean breastfeeding is a guaranteed success, but we can promise it will help! We’ll pick winners at random; to be eligible, leave a comment below, up to one a day between now and the end of the day on Wednesday, August 22nd. Maybe tell us what your breastfeeding goal is, or tell us what hurdles you’re facing. (We’re always looking to help women through the tough parts!) Each pillow is worth $40. Click here for the official rules. Goody luck!

    My son is four months old, and wearing 9 month clothing! He’s a BIG boy! I plan on breast feeding through 18 mos or as long as it is working for the both of us. I think I used these at my pediatricians office and I’ve been trying to figure out what it was because I loved it! I could really use something for my giant little eater!
