Theraline Maternity and Nursing Cushion {Review}

One issue with breastfeeding that seems to come up regularly is that it can be uncomfortable. That latch problems can be more so do to with positioning rather than anything else.

Theraline have created the Original Maternity and Nursing Cushion.

It promises:

Stable support during your pregnancy
Relief for legs, belly and a stressed back
Easy to change sleeping positions
Real comfort for baby feeding
Safely molds to baby’s body
Amazing back support
Obviously I haven't been able to review this with regards to pregnancy but have been able to test it to see how it helps with nursing.
Although Harry isn't a newborn anymore and we don't need help with positioning, I like to help to make it as comfortable for him as for me.
We tend to not stick to traditional feeding positions and I basically let Harry lay whichever way he likes, sometimes it can be awkward because it means I have to hold him in a weird position which can't always be comfortable. This pillow helped immendsley and allowed me to have one hand free.

I find the pillow easier to use when feeding in bed that when feeding in the lounge but I think this is more due to the fact that Harry is an older baby. If he was newborn then we would use the pillow for every feed.

The pillow is also suitable for post pregnancy and for life after nursing. I've used it to rest my back against when reading a book in bed....or blogging.
I've tried sleeping with the pillow between my legs, which would be useful for pregnant women, and found it really comfortable.
I used to suffer with leg cramps at night, I haven't for a while now but I know if they were to return that this pillow would help to make sleep a little more comfortable.

The pillow is filled with micro-beads, setting it apart from other maternity pillows on the market. From what I've seen of other maternity pillows, the micro-beads seem to be a lot more comfortable and make it easier to mould the pillow however required.

The Theraline Maternity and Nursing Cushion is available to buy via the Theraline website. The cost varies depending on the selected design.

We were sent a Theraline Maternity and Nursing Cushion for the purpose of this review. All words above are honest and my own.
