I got a Boppy nursing pillow when Rebecca was born. I had always intended to make a cover for it...but didn't. She very rarely spit up, so it wasn't a big deal...but it did get the ocassional milk dribble on it and after 18 months of breast feeding, the pillow didn't look pretty. Sorry...not photo of the yucky pillow.
Besides being great for breastfeeding, these pillows are also great for helping older siblings hold the new baby.
For cute photo ops...
And for when they're starting to sit up, it can provide cushioning for when they fall over.
(He's changed a lot in 6 months, huh?)
I had originally planned on making up a pattern that I could share with you...and then I realized there was probably someone out on the internet who had already done it, and sure enough there was. I used the pattern from Kelsey at Vanilla Joy.
These were so easy that instead of just making the one, I'd planned on, I made two for us...
The pattern is great. I just had one additional tip. The main thing I did differently was that I sewed a deeper inside seam. I wanted the cover to really hug the inside curve, so I could tuck the pillow into my tummy as close as possible for more support for Anson while breast feeding.
Please show my sponsors some love...
