Unique Features Make Mombo Nursing Pillow a Must-Have {Giveaway}

When I was pregnant for the first time, I remember doing a lot of reading about the “must haves” for registries… and both lists and friends alike told me I’d want a good nursing pillow, whether I nursed or bottle fed. Let me tell you, they were right! It’s easy to underestimate how heavy that tiny bundle of joy can seem after holding them for hours on end. And of course, the use for the pillow doesn’t end there – it’s perfect for cradling the baby while she rests or to prop her up for tummy time. I can honestly say that my pillow was the one of the things I used most with both boys.

After C was older I went ahead and sold my pillow at a consignment store, because we knew it’d be a while before having another child and our little house just doesn’t lend itself to storing a ton of things. So this time around I was really excited to have the chance to try out a Mombo pillow from Comfort & Harmony, which is a new introduction in stores since we last had a newborn in the house!

LOVE this pillow. It goes beyond the typical pillow with some extras I’m really excited to have. For one thing, there are two sides to it – a soft side (kind of the standard density you’d expect from a nursing pillow) and then another side that’s firmer. With the deluxe cover, there are also two sides with different textures. One is a soft microfiber-feeling fabric, and the other is a smoother cotton. I love the versatility of the pillow especially knowing how many ways we’ll want to use it.

Another feature of this pillow that’s a unique addition is the ability to add vibration – I don’t know of any other pillow on the market that offers that, and I know firsthand from our boys how much babies respond to having that. There’s a small battery-operated disc that you can put into a pouch at the back of the pillow, and it works well to travel through the pillow. It’s nice that it’s removable, because we all know that items newborns are around should be washer-friendly!

Speaking of washer-friendly, the cover is of course removable and can be thrown in the washer. I like this also because I can’t wait to purchase a few more covers to have as options… I have two in particular on my wish list:

LOVE the pink, and the flower pattern on the back! When we were sent our pillow, we still didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl, so they were nice enough to send us a great gender-neutral green print. Now that we know it’s a girl, I am excited to get that vibrant pink print!

How CUTE is this one? The pattern alone with the polka dots and owls is right up my alley, but it’s the added Taggies that really make it something I want. Babies are inexplicably drawn to tags, and I think this cover would really be fun for tummy time.

Before the pillow arrived I did a little research online to see what others were saying about it. I saw a couple of comments that the Mombo is narrow, so I was curious to see how it would fit – I think at 25 weeks pregnant my belly is a good size for gauging the range for the pillow, and it fit perfectly. If you look at the design, you’ll see that there are little indentations on both sides. When you put the pillow on, those indentations allow for the pillow to have room for spreading and fitting around your waist. The fit was snug, but not uncomfortable for Brian or me.

A nude (coverless) Mombo retails at Babies R Us for $25.49, cheaper than a major competitor, and its covers range from $11 to $22, which is also a less expensive price range.

One lucky reader will win their choice of a Mombo pillow (ARV up to $42.99)! This contest is open to all U.S. residents aged 18+. Entries will be accepted until the end of the day (midnight Central) Saturday, June 23. By entering this giveaway you agree to the Official Rules.

Mandatory Entry: “Like” Comfort & Harmony on Facebook and comment here letting me know you’ve done so (please include what name you “liked” under so it’s easy to check for validation).

(Only valid after the required entry has been completed)

Please leave a comment for each extra entry – if you blog about this giveaway and get 2 entries, for example, comment 2 times.

Note: I received a Mombo nursing pillow to facilitate my review, and Comfort & Harmony is fulfilling the prize for this giveaway. I was not compensated monetarily for this post. All opinions are honest and are my own.

    Using a nursing pillow can help with positioning and latch of your baby. This can help prevent problems with nursing and make it a more comfortable experience for you and baby. However, not all pillows are alike. Learn what pillows offer what support and which pillow help which situations from preemies to twins, breast and bottle feeding and more.
