    It’s especially helpful when my baby wants to nurse when I’m eating (always) or when I’m playing with my toddler. It allows me to have both hands relatively free and it’s easy to put on. Jan 02, 2021

  • I found this to feel awkward. Didn’t give my son the support I was hoping for. Jul 02, 2020

  • I tried using this a few times for me I could tell it would really help with the back pain of breast feeding but my LO didn’t like it but in all fairness he also doesn’t like to have a cover on. Mar 11, 2020

    I was given this nursing sling to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. This nursing sling saved my arms from round the clock newborn nursing sessionsp Jan 23, 2020

  • I wanted to love this, but it just wasn't for me. I think my baby is too big and heavy. My son soon outgrew it and he could sit up to nurse. It was too hard to adjust Jan 13, 2020

  • (what's this?)

    Super lightweight, portable and takes the strain off my back and shoulders! Jan 01, 2020

  • (what's this?)

    I have been using this while nursing my second baby. I found that this sling supported my baby better than a traditional nursing pillow. I didn’t use this as often as I thought I would. Dec 26, 2019

    • Montvale, New Jersey

    The Nurse-sling was very comfortable to use and a little different than a nursing pillow because you can adjust the distance between you and the baby and more compact making it easier to take with you Dec 17, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I didn’t find that it freed up my “nursing arm” any more than any other pillow. I still felt like I needed to have my arm under baby, under the pillow to support him or he couldn’t stay latched. Dec 17, 2019

    • Amy S.
    • Arlington, Virginia

    The nurse-sling is one of those products that are super helpful for travel. The material and padding are comfortable. Not the best for tiny babies with latch issues. Love the sustainability aspect. Dec 16, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I actually really like this nurse-sling.The baby can sit on your lap in a semi reclined position while the nurse sling helps hold her up. It takes the stress off my back, shoulders and arms. Dec 16, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    This sling was comfy but felt unnecessary and not especially useful since you can't walk while using it and I have a toddler to keep up with in addition to my new baby. Dec 15, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    The Nurse-sling was useful, but I don’t think I would call it a “must-have” item. I generally breastfeed without any pillows, but it was nice to be able to use both hands while nursing. Dec 14, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    The Nurse-Sling was very easy to use. It did not really free me up to do other things because I still had to hold baby girl with one hand while moving around but sitting it's great! Dec 14, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    With this sling I can multitask while feeding my 2 month old. I have even taken it while on-the-go. The cushion is soft, and my little one seems comfortable. My neck and back are thanking me. Dec 14, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Thanks to Stellar Product Testing program I was given the Humble-bee nursing sling to try. I found the sling easy to use and very portable compared to traditional pillows. Its a perfect size. Dec 14, 2019

  • As a second time nursing mom, I was pleased with Nurse-sling in that it helped remove some strain new moms feel in their back, shoulders! I received via Stellar product panel testing. Dec 14, 2019

    • Mimi H.
    • United States of America

    Super soft, amazing attention to detail, very high quality and versatile for after baby! High fiddle factor for life at home but amazing for life on the go. Store phone, passport, wallet and a diaper! Dec 13, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    This is a nice pillow for travel or when you're out. I still need my hands to prop up my baby so it's not hands free, but it does help support baby's head. Also helps alleviate back pain from hunching Dec 13, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Great concept with a lot of pros - washability, comfort, ease of use - that works best to relieve the strain of traditional nursing positions. Dec 13, 2019

    I have a toddler and 3 week old - this was helpful to allow me to multitask. It’s the only option I can think of that makes sense for travel given the size. Takes a minute to get the hang of it. Dec 12, 2019

    This nurse-sling fills a gap in the breastfeeding aids category, fitting between a traditional nursing pillow and no pillow/aid at all. The nurse-sling is attractive and well-designed. The fabric that Dec 12, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    This is the first time I have ever used a nursing sling. It is pretty unique and useful product for travel. My little one and I took sometime getting used to it. Though there were instructional videos Dec 12, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    The ability to have both hands free while nursing is great, especially having 2 older kids. Great for on the go-small and lightweight. I expect with will be easier to use as my baby gets older. Dec 12, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I received the Nurse-sling through the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and I have to say, it is a fun luxury item I'm not sure if I would have experienced otherwise. It comes rolled up in an extremely Dec 12, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    This thing is nice to have, but not necessary. It is nice to only have to use 1 hand, or even none, while feeding...but I already have the boppy and the breastfriend, so I wouldn't buy this on my own. Dec 12, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    Great for on the go and nursing with hands free. Soft material and multiple uses and seems easy to clean. Great alternative to a bulky nursing pillow! Dec 11, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    When I first received this product from Stellar Product Testing Panels, I was super intrigued. Other items of this nature are bulky and hard to take while traveling. And nursing without some kind of s Dec 11, 2019

    Love this nursing sling. I was initially using a nursing pillow and was always uncomfortable. With this sling I am able to latch baby and not worry about losing support. The material is very soft and Dec 11, 2019

    • Sarah G.
    • Raleigh, North Carolina

    Sadly this was too hard on my back - the sling pulled on my shoulder blades. I didn’t feel like I had more freedom than a traditional pillow. Wish it had worked out, good idea for travel! Dec 11, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    well made, creative, cushiony & thought out. The inside is lined (waterproof) - very comfortable - However, my child is wiggly/ fussy & even at 9 wks old is not still enough to comfortably use Dec 11, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I received this product from the stellar product testing panel. The concept of the sling is great, but to nurse with it, you need to either be sitting down or have your hand on the baby at all times. Dec 10, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    It's bulky and awkward to use and made me feel claustrophobic with it hanging off my neck. I also had to adjust baby frequently to keep him in the right position so it didn't free up my hands at all. Dec 10, 2019

  • (what's this?)
    • Leli C.
    • United States of America

    Great way alternative for nursing vs. traditional nursing pillow. More comfortable for mom, but dependent on baby. A little trial and error at first. Dec 10, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    It’s a great concept and I loved being able to get chores done while feeding my daughter but not so practical taking to a restaurant. Even with the travel bag having that and a cover isn’t practical. Dec 10, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I used two other pillows to help position my tongue tied newborn then tried out the nurse-sling. After reading the instructions, it was easy to figure out and use. I liked that it was adjustable. Dec 10, 2019

    • N S.

    I loved that it helps maintain the latch with my newborn and that you have one hand free to kind of do other things. A little bulkier than I'd like but that extra padding is cozy for baby. Dec 10, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    The nurse-sling is an alternative to the typical nursing pillow that I used with both my children. At first glance I was unsure if it would hold up given its much less bulky, but to my surprise it wor Dec 10, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    This nurse sling creates better hands free support and comfort than the traditional nursing pillow. The fabric is super soft and the shoulder strap is well cushioned and very comfortable. Dec 10, 2019

  • I received the Nurse-sling as a part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I love the idea of this product, but couldn't get comfortable with it. It was difficult to adjust and my baby got angry Dec 10, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    I think for nursing on the go it would be helpful for the portable extra support. I could also see this product benefiting mom's with babies who are not latching well or are new to breastfeeding. Dec 10, 2019

    • Sydnei W.
    • Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania

    I wanted to really like the nurse sling but found out that I preferred the nursing pillow more. Took too long to get baby properly positioned and still found that I needed to use one hand for support. Dec 10, 2019

    • Nik B.
    • Johnstown , Pennsylvania

    The material used is super plush and soft. Very cozy for delicate baby skin. It’s a great concept but didn’t work out for us. Struggled to get baby and myself in a comfortable position. Dec 10, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    As a third time breastfeeding mother I really didn't think I needed any new gear and in fact, have become much more minimalistic in my baby supplies, so I was surprised by how impressed I was and how Dec 10, 2019

  • (what's this?)

    The Nurse-sling is a well-made, soft alternative to a traditional nursing pillow. It's easy to use, especially on the go and allowed for a comfortable position for baby and I (and a good latch)! Dec 10, 2019

  • Fabrics are soft. Cushioning is plush. I could easily use both hands (ie feed my toddler). Easy to adjust to get a snug fit. I received this free from Stellar Product Testing for my feedback. Dec 10, 2019

    Easy to use! Much more convenient to take with you anywhere you go versus a breastfeeding pillow, easily can add it into your diaper bag. The shoulder straps are comfortable and soft. Dec 10, 2019

    I received this Nurse-Sling through the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I am a very experienced breastfeeding mother and this sling was awkward and uncomfortable to use. Not my jam at all. Dec 10, 2019

    Why weeLove Milkflow Lactation Cookies:

    In case you need a valid excuse to eat cookies, here’s a really good one: boosting milk supply. Nursing moms need to fuel their bodies to keep up with the demands of milk production and new parenthood. (If you’ve been wearing the same pants for three days—we get it, girl!) While lactation teas, capsules and powders aren’t for everybody, cookies most certainly are.

    Milkflow™ from UpSpring created the first ever lactation cookies made with the dream team of ingredients: Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle. These two essentials work together to help naturally promote breast milk supply in those early days, during your baby’s growth spurts (when you’re glued to the glider for feedings!), and pumping sessions.

    Available in Oatmeal Raisin and Double Chocolate Chip, cookies are non-GMO and made in the USA with all natural ingredients. These tasty treats come in packs of two—perfect for tossing in your diaper bag for a healthy snack on the go. Each box comes with 10 packs (20 cookies total), so you’ll be able to keep your milk production going strong while keeping “Hangry Mom Running Errands” at bay. It’s a win-win.

  • Milkflow Lactation Coffee Pods
  • weeThink

    Moms are all about multi-tasking (just ask anyone who can fold laundry, while doing an Amazon Prime order, while playing peek-a-boo with the baby.) Luckily, here's a way to get multiple things done at once, with a lot less juggling...

    UpSpring Milkflow Coffee Pods give nursing women a much-needed caffeine fix—along with milk-boosting duo fenugreek and blessed thistle—in just one cup of joe. A lactation supplement in easy-to-brew coffee? Yes, please!

    Compatible with most Keurig K-Cup coffee makers, each pod serves 55mg of caffeine and 450mg of Fenugreek to help establish or increase a healthy milk supply (hello, growth spurts!). All ingredients are natural, gluten-free, and non-GMO. And don't worry—the pods themselves are made with mother (earth) in mind, too. They're 100% compostable, 100% plant-based, and BPA-free.

    Ready to pop in a pod and get back to that master multi-tasking? Because there's a diaper bag to be packed + car keys to be found.
