The 15 best nursing pillows to use with your baby

I recognize that the utility you find in a nursing pillow knows no middle ground : either it becomes essential when feeding your baby (whether breastfeeding or bottle feeding), or it gets forgotten in a drawer . In my case I was from the first group and a repeat offender, since I used it with my two daughters and until the last day of the second lactation, which lasted almost two years.

Cambrass Star Nursing Pillow

The small Cambrass nursing pillow is very practical during the breastfeeding period. During lactation it serves both the baby and the mother (or the adult).

At the same time, it provides the adult with extra support for the arms, avoiding tension in the elbow, back and wrist. In addition to its use for breastfeeding, it is also indicated for adults who, when placed around the neck, relax the muscles and cervical obtaining a very comfortable sensation.

The first thing that caused me doubt when writing the post was the title. I have often heard the terms prolonged breastfeeding to refer to children older than 12 months who are still nursing. Or breastfeeding in older children. And yet, I get the impression that these terms refer to something that is not normal, as if breastfeeding had to have a short duration or children beyond the age of 2 years were considered too old to breastfeed.
