What weabout it
This machine-washable pillow has an angled design to position your baby at an incline while nursing.

Description


Designed by a lactation consultant, the Gia nursing pillow has a unique, asymmetrical design.

It tapers from thick to thin so your baby is positioned at an incline, which may help reduce gas and spit-up. This versatile shape will grow with your baby—it provides comfortable support for a range of nursing positions, but is also great for sitting, propping and lounging.

The Gia pillow and covers (sold separately) are made with a soft, 100-percent cotton shell and polyester fill. You can use the pillow with or without a cover, and you can toss the whole thing in the wash. It’s dryer safe and retains its shape throughout washing.

Selecting a breastfeeding pillow is a matter of personal preference and fit; you may need to experiment to find the perfect match. The Gia is taller and wider than other nursing pillows—about twice as thick as a Boppy on the high side—making it too large for some petite moms.

I never succeeded in using this as a nursing pillow! It felt way too large and bulky (I should mention that I am petite, 5'0" and I didn't feel comfortable just setting my baby on top of it while I nursed. I instead used it as a prop during tummy time, or for my baby to lie back on before she could sit.

We used this as a nursing pillow only a handful of times. It is nearly impossible to determine what kind of nursing pillow you'll need before you actually start nursing and I regret having someone spend so much money on this for me to not end up using it for its intended purpose . Every mom and baby are different. I ended up using a regular pillow most of the time, or none at all. This is a lot bigger than I expected, and I am on the petite side, and felt so awkward and bulky to use - I was better without. It did come in very handy, however, as an option to put baby in a reclining position or propped up for tummy time when she was tiny. Also disappointed that it does NOT come with a cover - have to buy one separately or cover with a blanket, as we did. Wait until you start nursing before you buy a pillow! This might work for some, but for us a regular pillow was more comfortable.

It is big and firm, so it props baby up to the perfect height for breastfeeding. Other nursing pillows are too flat and seem uncomfortable for baby. I would suggest ordering the cover for this pillow. I ordered two so one could be in the wash and the other on the pillow.

Turns out I'm not a fan of any nursing pillow. They aren't made for tall people. I think they are dumb. Try pillows before you buy them. They seem like a good idea, but are useless if they don't "fit" right.

Baby does not balance on it well. I loved My Brest friend. Thank god for that nursing pillow - and travel version!

It made feeding my baby easy in the early months, but is essentially useless after that point.

I like the angle of the pillow but for me it's not worth the slight annoyance of having to hold the baby up high with one arm while I flip the pillow with the other hand to switch sides for nursing.

I found it bulky and difficult to use. The pillow would slide away from your body and not support the baby the way it should. The angle of the pillow also means you need to flip it when switching sides which is a HUGE pain while holding a newborn. There are many better options for nursing pillows. I do not recommend this one.

Maybe it was a combination of me having small breasts and my son being on the lower end of the weight and height percentile, but I could never get comfortable using it. I had a hard time using it for nursing but it was handy to use as a support for my son in the early newborn weeks while I supervised.
