First off, before I say anything else, I have to say I love the brand name, if you aren’t familiar with cockney rhyming slang, have a look on google to fully appreciate it! Thrupenny Bits was created by Melissa Wyatt, who like so many women, discovered that breastfeeding was not something that came easily.
She found the breast-feeding pillow she was using caused more problems than it solved so decided to create something more suitable for her own needs and quickly discovered that the Ultimate and Classic ranges could easily be converted into a bag with an inner pocket and phone holder inside for continued use after little one stops breast feeding. The Blue Stripe Nursing Pillow from the Ultimate Range is a hypoallergenic breastfeeding pillow with a, and I quote ‘non girlie’ design that would look just as good as a loose, boho style bag later on. So, what are the benefits to using this pillow, this crescent shaped cushion is filled with high grade hollow fibre polypropylene, which is fire retardant and hypoallergenic, reducing the risk of allergies for your baby.
The straps let you carry the pillow like a bag over the handlebars of the pram or across the body, making it easy to take out with you wherever you go. It has been designed with a lactation specialist to aid breastfeeding with easier latching in multiple feeding positions. The ergonomic design, flexibility and straps that tie around your waist takes the pressure off your arms and shoulders but supporting baby and prevent the pillow from slipping out of place whilst feeding. The material is soft to the touch but hardwearing for a long lifespan, as baby grows the pillow can be used as a prop to help them sit up before turning into a bag, it can even be converted back again for new family members. The pillow is machine washable for those little accidents and to keep things fresh and clean. This nursing pillow ticks all our boxes, makes breastfeeding life more comfortable, protects your back, has an adult design, has a life after breast feeding, its portable and has a wonderful cheeky name.
