That Special Bond
This post is sponsored by Boppy®. Thank you for supporting SITC.
Being a new mom brings so many new feelings to the surface. It’s funny how much my emotions were completely different with each one of my children. When I had Ryder, I went from working a full time job and always on the go, to sleepless nights and learning to come to terms that I couldn’t get everything done in one day and that showering was a huge accomplishment. When Siella and Gemma came, my focus was making sure everyone had equal time and attention with me. There were so many things that made being a new mom, three times over so special. The one thing that remained constant with all three, were the long hours of uninterrupted bonding with them, usually that happened in the middle of the night when they would wake to feed while everyone else was asleep. These times were meaningful and helped me ease into my new role and new life. I had plenty of time to stare and just be in the moment.
One essential that helped me fully enjoy this bonding was the Boppy® Feeding & Infant Supporting Pillow. I received one as a baby shower gift and remember registering for three different prints because the lady at the baby store told me this was a must-have on all registry’s. I took her word for it because not many of my close friends were having baby’s at that time, so I didn’t really have anyone to ask. But, I have to say from the moment I started using it, I never went anywhere without it. I could relax and nurse and most importantly, I could really connect and have that #BoppyLove.
The Boppy® Pillow is one of those items I can confidently say that every new parent absolutely needs. When Siella and Gemma came along, I even made sure to bring my Boppy® Pillow to the hospital with me. It is one of the most versatile baby products as it can be used for months. It lifts the baby up for ergonomic breast or bottle feeding, then it transitions to a prop pillow for propping up, for tummy time and learning to sit.
It’s amazing to see how much Boppy® has grown and expanded their nursing pillow line. There are several options now like the Bare Naked® Pillow (sans slip cover), Classic Pillow (offered in an assortment of patterns), and Luxe Pillow. There are also endless slip cover options from plush to organic and protective. The Boppy Company has also expanded into skincare, pregnancy pillows, breastfeeding accessories, baby loungers, baby clothing and plush goods, baby travel products, baby seats and more.
