There are so many different products on the market for babies and kids and it’s my goal to share with you ones that we love! So, if you have a product selection that you want to recommend to us or for us to try let us know! With that being said here’s my first review of many!
Knowing I was going to be breastfeeding I knew I’d need a nursing pillow! I chose the Comfort & Harmony Mombo because it was cute and had a lot of neat features. Now after having breastfed my little one over a year I know the Mombo’s features aren’t neat, they’re AMAZING!The Mombo features a soft plus side, which is great for baby lounging and tummy time, and a firm flat side for nursing. It has a snug fitting curve and a vibration unit.
I took for granted how awesome having a firm flat side and that tight fit is until I used a Boppy at a visit to our lactation consultant . My baby was rolling off the Boppy and I had to use another pillow to get the Boppy into a position good for nursing. I also noticed how flat the Boppy became under my baby’s weight, an issue I have yet to have with my Mombo. Another plus is to the flat side is that because it’s not curved there’s a larger area to lay baby, great now that I’m nursing a 12 month old not a newborn! Plus the height of the Mombo assists baby in sitting up.
The vibration unit on the Mombo was a lifesaver when my baby was a newborn. Laying her in the Mombo with the vibration unit on was the only way I could do my hair without getting my baby covered in hair! Now that baby is older I now lay on the pillow with the vibration unit on for a little bit of relaxation. In 12 months of use, we’ve only gone through 3 batteries, and that’s mostly due to the units automatic shut off.
The Mombo comes in several cute designs and has many easy to change covers. I purchased the “Tweet Life” design along with two other covers (pictures and action shots to come later). The covers have been through the washing machine and dryer several times and still look new!
Overall, we love the Mombo because it can be used from birth to toddler, it comes in fun and cute designs, and it’s durable.
