One of my favorite parts about MommyCon Austin were the vendors. There were rows of vendors; some were international companies, while others were smaller mom-owned businesses. I came upon the Nursie booth and was really intrigued by their product, a different type of nursing pillow. I got to speak to Tiffany, creator of the Nursie, and learned that it was born from her own needs.
As a mother of 3, she was looking for a nursing pillow that was easy to toss into a diaper bag but still brought baby up to the breast. She decided to make her own pillow (I'm jealous of her craftiness) and had a number of mamas who were happy to help her test prototypes. After a few changes, she developed a product that other moms would like. Instead of messing with straps with a squirming, hungry baby, a mama can just slide the Nursie pillow on to her forearm. It's small enough to put in a diaper bag, but supportive enough to keep baby at the right height. The inside of the pillow is so soft and minky, while the outside is available in a number of patterns and colors.
While it has been designed as a nursing pillow, it can easily be used by moms and other caregivers for bottle feeding. It helps keep baby close to the person doing the feeding, which can help reduce gas pain for baby and reduce back pain for the caregiver! All Nursie pillows are machine washable, in case a diaper explosion happens - and they will happen! Available in a number of colors and prints, each Nursie pillow is made with love in New Braunfels, Texas.
