Review: mombo™ from Comfort & Harmony™ Nursing Pillow & Infant Positioner

With baby number 2 on the way I’m excited to highlight some of my favorite infant/baby products and gear with you guys! First on my list would be mombo™ from Comfort & Harmony™ Nursing Pillow & Infant Positioner. It’s kind of like that “other” pillow but BETTER.

Let me tell you what makes this pillow better. mombo™ from Comfort & Harmony™ has a unique shape and a two-sided design called Firm2Soft™, with each side offering a different experience which I love. The firm side gives essential support for mom and baby. The soft side is perfect for lounging, tummy time or sitting up.

And mombo™ from Comfort & Harmony™ is the only nursing pillow with a vibration feature that is removable for when your baby needs it or not. Inserting the vibration feature doesn’t interfere with the comfort of the pillow. It’s a great option!

mombo™ from Comfort & Harmony™ was definitely made with moms in mind not just babies. When using mombo™ from Comfort & Harmony™ in the nursing position, it wrapped around me like it was made for my body. That’s why the unique shape really makes sense. I don’t feel like I’m squeezing into it, which is the last thing you want to feel when nursing.

This pillow gives you so many different options for it’s many uses. I love that it’s light and easy to travel with. There are so many different covers to pick from with different fabrics. My favorite has to be mombo™ Taggies™ Pillow cover.

So when the time comes for baby #2 to make its arrival. I will be sure to pack my mombo™ to take to the hospital!

mombo™ from Comfort & Harmony™ Nursing Pillow & Infant Positioner is available exclusively at Babies R Us and starts at $29.99. Cases start at $19.99.
