5 Secrets of Better Breastfeeding with BellaMoon Nursing Nest
Bellamoon® ‘Half Moon’ Nursing Nest is uniquely designed for Mum and baby lying on their side to breastfeed, a position that makes nursing a much more relaxing and enjoyable experience for both. It not only helps your latch position, but it also provides safety and peace of mind during lateral breastfeeding and can help establish and prolong the wonderful journey, allowing baby to reap the long-term health benefits of breastmilk.
Here are 5 Reasons why our Nursing Nest is so Special…
1. COMFORT FOR MOTHER
Our clever patent-pending design allows you to comfortably laterally breastfeed in the Universal Lateral Breastfeeding Position (or the natural cuddle curl) giving you some much needed time-out to rest with baby. This position is known to enhance baby’s physiological, mental and physical development as well as provide greater comfort to Mother.
2. LATCH POSITION FOR BABY
The BellaMoon® Nursing Nest supports the lateral breastfeeding position, or 'the side lying position'. This position naturally encourages a deep latch. It is especially good for mamas with an oversupply or forceful let down. The raised mattress brings baby closer to the breast for a more comfortable nursing session.
3. ANTI-ROLL FIN & BARRIER
Our Nursing Nest features our signature Anti-Roll Fin which prevents you rolling on to baby and an Anti-Roll Barrier which prevents your baby from rolling off the edge of the bed and can also remind your partner that baby is also present and feeding during the nursing intervals.
4. BREATHABILITY AND CLOSENESS
The space above baby’s head is fully open for breathability and to prevent a build-up of heat, whilst allowing you to naturally and lovingly cocoon herself around your baby and kiss their little head during lateral feeding. This is also extremely important for those times when baby has a raised temperature, to allow heat loss above baby’s head. Lying adjacent to baby, Mothers can stay deeply connected and in tune to baby’s needs, such as their breathing rate, heart rate, temperature and general well-being.
5. HYGIENIC MATTRESS BASE
The raised baby mattress provides a firm and hygienic base to feed, whilst improving your latch by raising baby up closer to your breast. The mattress is designed to be firm yet waterproof and breathable as an additional safety feature.
A note on safety: BellaMoon is a breastfeeding product designed for short intervals of breastfeeding. It is not a co-sleeper. After breastfeeding is complete and baby has latched off, baby should be returned to their own separate sleep surface.
