I was sent a fab Cow Print widgey and I couldn't wait to use it.
Widgey® Nursing Pillow is a feeding aid for nursing mothers with a firm filling and removable cotton covers (great for milk spillages!!). Uniquely designed to hug around the mother it removes the need for the mother to clasp both the child and the pillow whilst breast and/or bottle feeding.
The Widgey really has longevity as it's uses are as follows:
- Can be used in pregnancy for back support
- Is used for nursing baby, it hugs round mums body and provides a raised support for baby to rest on as they breast or bottle feed.
- Once your baby is 3 months old he can be rested within the confines of the pillow to aid digestion of his milk
- And lastly once your baby is around 6 months old and attempting to sit up unaided the Widgey can be positioned around the baby so he will be supported if he falls backwards.
So you see it really is worth it's weight!
I've found this cushion really handy now I'm breast feeding, it raises Noah up a bit so that I'm not bearing all his weight on my arms and as I use a different position to feed him on each side it works in both instances. I'm also looking forward to using it to support Noah when he's starting to sit up as I like the fact that it will surround him and it is quite a firm pillow so he wouldn't fall over.
The Widgey has a RRP: £29.99 and is stocked at: www.thebabycatalogue.com, Mothercare, John Lewis, Boots,Toys R Us, Asda, Tesco, Amazon.
I was sent a Widgey free of charge in order to write this review. The opinions expressed are my own.
