    i love this pillow, I didn’t think it would be to good when I first saw it but now that I’m 7 months pregnant I use it every night and it really does help me have a more restful night of sleep!! Jul 13, 2019

    Superb, versatile nursing pillow which supports a variety of nursing positions & is so comfortable for both mom & baby. A must have! Jun 21, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I really like that this pillow has many different uses. We used it for; sleeping, bottle feeding, and baby holding. Very flexible and great quality. Mar 22, 2019

    I received this as part of the weeSpring parent panel.Great flexible nursing pillow...I love the washable cover, especially through the early stages of nursing with lots of leaks. Mar 21, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I am currently 29 weeks pregnant and received this pillow when I was about 20 weeks. This is my third pregnancy and my second time using a maternity pillow. The first was borrowed and I really wanted/ Feb 14, 2019

  • Too hard! Not comfortable. I prefer a normal pillow and so did baby! Feb 08, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I haven't been able to try it while nursing yet, but have been using it to help me get a good nights rest. Needs a little more filling, but otherwise, I love it! Jan 24, 2019

    I am 29 weeks (6 months) pregnant. This pillow provides great support while I’m sleeping: I am able to wrap this pillow around to provide support in multiple places. This pillow as firm but flexible. Jan 24, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I really like that the pillow is unstructured so that you have the freedom to mold it to a comfortable position for you, but the beads inside don't stay in place once you lay a baby on it. Jan 24, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Long, firm, quiet, machine washable, great shape— loved for sleeping. A little long for nursing on couch / chair, but great if in bed or on floor. Jan 23, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Favorite nursing pillow so far! I'm super picky...for nursing I'd prefer if it were shorter, and for a pregnancy pillow I'd prefer if it were softer, but it's the only nursing pillow I use now! Jan 23, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    It is comfortable to sleep with. It helped support my arm and bring my babies face to a great position for easy feeding. It's flexibility allows you to position the baby however you need. Jan 22, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Great for sleeping while pregnant and beyond. It’s slim enough that my husband can actually sleep in the same bed with me. It is really adaptable: I can fold it however I need to in order to nurse! Jan 22, 2019

    • Erin R.
    • Auburn, Washington

    I found this pillow to be supportive were needed, yet light enough to easily maneuver into different positions through the night. Jan 22, 2019

    • Ali R.
    • Salida, Colorado

    I received this product as a part of the Weespring parent panel. I have tried several other breastfeeding pillows and pregnancy pillows, but never one that could be supportive for both! I didn't get Jan 21, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    This pillow is on the smaller side which is nice if you have a smaller bed. It also has a removable cover - which is great. I look forward to using as a nursing pillow as it's easy to contort. Jan 21, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    For a maternity pillow, this product is great! The bead filling is nice and firm while soft enough to support your growing belly. Jan 21, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I loved the flexibility this pillow offered. I only was able to use for maternity but I feel like this will work well for breastfeeding as well. I do wish the pillow case was softer, I found it rough. Jan 21, 2019

  • I used the pillow for sleeping and nursing. It has been a great support for my arm and back while nursing, and is very confortable to use as a body pillow while sleeping. Jan 20, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    So I tried MANY different pregnancy pillows while pregnant and I ended up throwing them all in the basement. I wish this one had been available! It is so comfy I am still sleeping with it. If you need Jan 20, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Overall, this is a great product since you can use it is so many situations, so you only need 1 item to cover many uses and remain comfortable no matter what! Jan 20, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    This pillow is nice if you want something you can use after the baby is born; however I agree with other reviewers that it's not the most comfortable. Just get a snoogle! Jan 19, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Great option for travel! I used it as a nursing pillow with my toddler and a comfy body pillow at night while pregnant. It was so convenient to only pack one pillow for both uses. Jan 19, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I love this pillow! The filling makes it so easy to use it in different sleeping/sitting positions. I mainly use it for middle of the night feedings as my 2 month old still sleeps in my room. Jan 19, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    This “pillow” is terrible. The stuffing is more like a light sand that doesn’t stay in the spot you want it. It has no give, not comfortable at all Jan 19, 2019

    • Aimee Z.
    • Goose Creek, South Carolina

    I like the shape of this pillow and it's many many uses. It has been helpful for breastfeeding and I love that it is a neutral color. I wish the cover was softer. Jan 19, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Found it okay as a sleeping pillow because the firmness is adjustable. Did not like for nursing. Hard to position comfortably while nursing seated on couch. Jan 19, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I was very impressed with the Medela Maternity and Nursing Pillow. I love that you can shift it around to your own preference and you are not stuck with one specific shape or form like others. Jan 19, 2019

  • (what's this?)
    • Carol C.
    • Norfolk, Massachusetts

    I love how light and easy to use and easy to clean this is. I especially love how it's not too firm like a lot of other pillows out there. Jan 18, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Versatile, comfortable and great quality. Jan 18, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I can't sleep comfortably without it now! I've washed the cover twice and it was easy to get on and off and it stayed in perfect condition. The beading inside lets me mold the pillow to fit my shape! Jan 18, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I liked it a LOT more than I thought I would as a pregnancy support pillow. It’s long enough for my whole body and light enough to carry around when I move around at night. Comfy to rest my head on! Jan 18, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    If you want a stiffer, longer pillow then this is perfect Otherwise it’s not that great for a maternity pillow as it’s too stiff, but does provide a lot of support for nursing Jan 18, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    It's too small to be a maternity pillow, not long or wide enough to comfortably support my legs while lying down, and too long & thin for a nursing pillow. Also, the cover is really rough. Jan 18, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I received this Maternity/Nursing Pillow from the weeSpring Parent Panel, and to be honest I received it a little too late. I didn’t get to use the pillow during my pregnancy, it was delivered after I Jan 18, 2019

  • I love the sleek design and size of this pillow—it doesn’t take up the whole bed and can be taken in the car or wherever we go! It is super soft and supportive. Jan 17, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I was given this Maternity/Nursing Pillow to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. For my first pregnancy I didn't have a maternity pillow and really didn't think I needed one. I was so wrong! Jan 17, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I received this pillow from the WeeSpring Parent Panel in exchange for my honest feedback. I have tried other nursing pillows in the past as well and have never found one that I loved. My first though Jan 17, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    This pillow has worked amazing while breastfeeding. I was using a home pillow and it did not proved enough support, I was always in fear that baby baby wasn’t comfortable. This pillow is big enough to Jan 17, 2019

  • (what's this?)
    • Lois K.
    • Covington, Washington

    I like the versatility of the pillow for postpartum & pregnancy. I’ve only used it for sleeping thus far but it is my favorite maternity pillow since it is narrow and easy to put in a position I want. Jan 17, 2019

    • JaCee A.
    • Belle Fourche, South Dakota

    Not a fan of this as a maternity pillow. Very firm and not easily maneuverable. Love it as a nursing pillow. Longer than other pillows allowing me to get more back support! Jan 17, 2019
