A few months ago when working on our Chic Mom list of must-haves, we remembered a classic brand we all know and love - Boppy. For those of you who don't know, the Boppy pillow is all about bonding with your babe. We have to agree and it definitely has "been shown to increase bonding between mom and baby and to contribute in many ways to the well-being of the mother." It also is a helping hand because us mommas can never have enough. We are sure you multi-tasking moms can agree.
The Boppy pillow is simply the best. Not only can new moms get the support they need when feeding their infant but it is has been voted the #1 baby product for the past seven years and it has our approval. You can use it so many ways and change the style with many cotton-polyester blended Slipcovers. It is perfect for all those feedings and makes you and your babe comfortable. The Boppy pillow ($35) is also perfect for the baby while lying, playing and learning to sit. All the Boppy pillows have the Miracle Middle so they won't outgrow it right away with the stretch panel to fit all size waists. You can buy the Boppy Pillow and Coordinating Slipcovers at Babies “R” Us. We love THIS one!
The newborn lounger is newer to the brand but moms can’t stop raving. This is the only support pillow that is uniquely designed for newborns and preemies. All of our moms who gave it a try couldn’t believe how content their little bundle of joy was as they lounged safely keeping mom’s hands free. Like the Boppy pillow, the cotton soft slipcover removes easily for a change in color (additional slipcovers sold separately) and frequent washings. Available for a little under $27 (what a steal!) from Amazon.
Another favorite is the Cradle in Comfort Bouncer ($54.99) from the Boppy Flower Festival Collection available exclusively at Target. It is one of the softest fabrics a bouncy chair has featured for your little one to rest on. We love the removable infant bolster that supports even the smallest newborns. Another great feature is the adjustable settings that allow you to set the bouncer to recline in a locked bassinet position or a bouncing position. Two plush toys are included along with music and vibration for your guy or gal to kick too.
The play mat is also a great find which features a soft mat in the shape of a garden leaf for hours of fun. We love the mini Boppy pillow that is included, to cradle baby for tummy time fun while being comfortable and supported. You also can attach toys to the pillow or pad via the six links included. It does come with a plush dragonfly with crinkle wings, water-filled teether and plastic ring rattle to keep them busy. It is available for purchase at Babies “R” Us.
