Nursing On the Go with the GoPillow!

Ever tried breastfeeding your baby on a warm day? Outdoors? In an office? A mall? A park?

We all know the standard breastfeeding position: Mom cradles the baby’s head on her arm, so that baby can rest and feed comfortably.  Boppies and breastfeeding pillows are nice too.  But if you’ve ever breastfed a baby you might also recall the way your arm and the baby’s head get sweaty and sticky on warm days, making the whole experience not so comfortable after all.

Here’s an amazing product that excels in the multitasking department. Moms everywhere give it two thumbs up and we think it’s a great idea, too! The GoPillow serves the following needs:

  • A wearable breast feeding pillow, which cradles baby’s head while keep everyone sweat-free (on warm days) and cozy (on cool days)
  • Designed for comfortable cradling
  • Built-in cover-up blanket which you can throw over your shoulder for privacy
  • Pillow and body wrap for babies and toddlers, great for on-the-go naps
  • Portable diaper changing surface
  • Sun and wind shield for babies and toddlers
  • Arm cushion for carrying babies and toddlers
  • Arm warmer during cold weather (especially during outdoor activities)
  • Super soft plush available in baby pink or baby blue.

Patemm: The latest in changing pads

patemm2.jpgpatemm11.jpg

My aunt bought me the Patemm changing pad (“a revolution in diaper changing”) as a baby gift. She discovered it after her own daughter (my cousin) had a baby and someone must have bought her this latest mommy-must-have item.

What is it? It’s kind of like a portable diaper bag. When it’s opened up, it’s a large, round changing pad with an easy-clean, wipeable surface. Along the edges are pockets to keep spare diapers, wipes, ointment, and even a change of clothes. Then it folds up into a handy little square package with handles that make it easy to carry along with you wherever you go! It’s really a brilliant idea!

The Patemm pad comes in 22 fun prints all with chocolate brown trim and sewn-in polyester batting. Mine is baby blue, but I really like their patterned pads, such as the red&white “Emma“, or the grey&black “Jack Martin.”

They also have a super-handy, compartmentalized “bote bag” (bottle bag) and small pouches called pitakas which fit perfectly in the patemm pad pockets and can hold hold wipes, small ointments, etc.

Check out the Patemm website to view the funky patterns they come in and read parent’s feedback. It really is “A smart, stylish and practical solution to the diaper bag… makes changing your little one quick and simple… The mom-invented patemm™ pads have received national and international acclaim by parents, caretakers and the media and has truly become an essential baby item!”
