A good breastfeeding cushion in combination with a breastfeeding stool can help a mother position her baby at the breast and can prevent neck, shoulder, arm and back pain. A stool for nursing will help bring the baby up to a comfortable level for nursing, it prevents a mother from leaning forward to nurse.
What are the differences between breastfeeding stools or any other footstools or ottomans?
The breastfeeding stool is tilted at an angle so that you can rest your feet and have your knees positioned up higher. The nursing stool is also much lower than most other nursery gliders and ottomans.
Some mothers who breastfeed like to get a special nursing chair “breastfeeding chair,” these are a lot more expensive but can be used by others for many years after it has served its purpose for breastfeeding.
