Hush Cush- Making breastfeeding more comfortable!

There are always so many new products coming out for pregnancy and babies all the time it can be hard as a new mum to know what’s worth getting or not. Especially before you are in the situation.I have been reviewing the Hush Cush over the last couple of months.

What is the Hush Cush?

It is a unique type of breastfeeding pillow, that has a sleeve so you put your arm through it, so you are effectively wearing it.

I have been reviewing the Hush Cush over the last 2 months. It is a unique type of breastfeeding pillow, that has a sleeve so you put your arm through it, so you are effectively wearing it.

It comes in 4 different colours (pink, grey, blue and cream) with an option to buy a pretty outer cover too. We had the blue Hush Cush with blue teddy bears outer cover on it.

How did we get on with it?

At first I was quite sceptical about how much I would use the Hush Cush on a day to day basis, but I was surprised by how handy and versatile it became.

I found that the Hush Cush was really helpful in getting baby Austin into a good breastfeeding position for latching on. By having that cushion support made it much for comfortable for my arm with Austins increasingly heavy head! especially if he was having a particularly long feeding session or after falling asleep on me.  I tried it out using different breastfeeding positions including the rugby ball hold and cross cradle, and worked well with all of these. My husband also found it useful when bottle feeding Austin.

My arm did get a bit hot occasionally but thats no different if using any pillow.
It’s a good size, big enough to securely hold babies head but small enough to be portable.  Velcro handle to attach to pram, handy as you don’t want to use up precious space in the changing bag.

Covers are both machine washable something which is important with most baby products!

Other than feeding I have used the Hush Cush in other handy ways, including for baby sleeping, as a car pillow for me, pillow for my toddler when out and about and on the plane. Due to its small size and strap its a perfect portable pillow and I think would always come in handy with small children!

The only negative I can really say about the Hush Cush and to be honest it’s a negative about all nursing pillows in general is that you tend to use a lot with newborn and then less as the baby gets older. I have found this with Austin, at first the Hush Cush was so handy because he was just learning really, and getting him in the correct position to latch on etc could be tricky at times. However now he is an experienced breastfeedee and so I was often feed him quickly without even thinking about using the Hush Cush.

Having said that though as the pillow is portable and has other uses it probably does have more longevity and practicality than other traditional nursing pillows.

Favourite thing?

My favourite thing about the Hush Cush is that it allowed me to support Austins head whilst feeding but still allowed me to have my hands free which just made life a bit easier with a toddler in tow too!

I would definitely recommend the Hush Cush pillow for any new mums or mums to be, if your interested in getting a Hush Cush pillow you can have a look here,

    What a fantastic product. I’ll make sure to recommend this to my sister – It’s great that it can be used as a car pillow as well!

    What a great idea this is. I like the fact that it can clip onto the pram and that you can use it as a pillow too. X

    I wish I had something like that when my daughter was a baby. It would’ve made life so much easier.

    That’s a really clever design. I used to have a cushion but couldn’t carry it around and didn’t wrap round so their heads would stick to my arm!

    That’s a great idea, what a simple but clever design
