I’ve partnered with Boppy for this post and was provided the Boppy Best Latch Breastfeeding Pillow and clothing samples at no cost to facilitate this review.
Boppy has long been a trusted name when it comes to baby gear, but did you know they offer so much more than just their popular Boppy Original Nursing Pillow? Today I’m excited to tell you about the Best Latch Nursing Pillow plus give you a look at some of the new baby clothes offered from Boppy!
First, let’s talk about the Boppy Best Latch Nursing Pillow. Boppy is basically the go-to company when it comes to breastfeeding pillows, so I was really excited to see what this new pillow offered. If you’re planning to breastfeed your baby, a quality breastfeeding pillow is definitely high on my list of breastfeeding essentials. My baby Gideon is now 5 months old and still exclusively breastfeeding. Collectively between my 4 children I have been breastfeeding over 4 years. I’ve tried out a lot of different nursing products, including pillows, during that time. To be honestly, sometimes I just ditch the pillow as my babies get older but I’ve found that in doing so I end up with tension spots on my upper back, so I’m trying to get better about using them.
This Boppy pillow was developed specifically for breastfeeding moms. I’ve never seen this before in a nursing pillow but each side is different so you can choose between two levels of support. One side provides a firmer, more stable surface, while the other side is more pillow-like and snuggly. It has a wide arm, designed to fit moms of any size and it also has a removable belt to assist in keeping the pillow in place while nursing.
I tried out both sides of the pillow and found that at this stage I prefer the pillow-like, snuggly side, but really both sides are great. I think the firmer side would have been extremely helpful when my babies were newborn and tiny. The extra height is just what you need when you have a newborn. The strap was a great addition to really keep the pillow in place, especially now that my son likes to move around a lot while he’s nursing.
Possibly one of my favorite feature is that this pillow is machine washable! My older kids spilled something on it almost immediately (I still don’t know what it was) but I tossed it in the washer (after removing the foam insert) and it came out good as new!
Now that you’ve heard about the new Best Latch Breastfeeding Pillow, let me tell you about Boppy clothes! I honestly had no idea they were making clothing now – did you know? I just love adorable baby clothes and admittedly go a little nuts trying to find the cutest clothes for my little ones. The new Boppy clothing collection has been designed with patterns and characters inspired by your favorite Boppy pillows and it’s absolutely adorable!
I was sent a set of two Bodysuits and a Sleep ‘n Play in the Gray Elephant design for Gideon. I was immediately impressed by how soft the sleeper was and I love the way it looks. Then I noticed an AMAZING feature on these sleepers — they have two zippers! I’ve always hated sleepers with zippers because in the winter when it’s cold I feel like I’m practically taking all of my baby’s clothes off to change their diaper. With the additional zipper, you can unzip from the bottom, pull the legs out to change a diaper, but leave the top portion zipped clothed. Seriously, I can’t tell you how much I love this feature. It’s about time someone did this!!
It also features roll-down cuffs so you can find the perfect arm length for your little one. My babies sometimes have sleepers where the legs fit perfectly but the arms are too short; this totally fixed that problem! Like the Sleep ‘n Play, the Gray Elephant Bodysuits are adorable and soft and a perfect way to compliment the Sleep ‘n Play.
I am loving these Boppy products and can’t wait to try some of their other product (like their skincare products for mom)! Head over to their website to see all of the other great items they offer these days! What’s your favorite Boppy item?
