Why a breastfeeding chair? know your advantages
Breastfeeding is a very important time for both the baby and mother. Not only is the act of suppressing the feeding of breast milk, which contains all of the vitamins and nutrients the baby needs, but the moment of breastfeeding is one that creates and strengthens the unique bond between the two.
In this way, it is important that breastfeeding is performed in a safe and comfortable environment for those involved.
Especially in the early days, mom needs to get used to the correct way of holding the baby until she finds the position that suits both of them. At that moment it makes all the difference where and in what position the mother is.
The nursing chair is not an indispensable item in the baby’s room, but having one in the bedroom is a guarantee of a safe, comfortable and cozy place for all times of breastfeeding, where mother and child need all possible relaxation.
Therefore, the nursing chair draws attention to itself when buying furniture in the room and ends up in the basic list of many people together with the crib and the chest of drawers.
Mom and baby: how do you choose the perfect armchair for both?
The chair and armchair are two of the oldest pieces in design history, so there are many types of armchairs that may or may not be used as a nursing chair.
The softest and most comfortable models are best known and preferred when it comes to an armchair for breastfeeding. But if we talk about comfort, many chair models can fall into this category, even those that don’t look so soft.
The possibilities are almost unlimited: between twist, swing, poufs, in an older style, modern or modern, different fabrics or fabrics made of natural fibers, types of wood, prints, colors and so on.
Experimentation is the ideal introduction to the perfect armchair. In addition to the models and colors, the focus is on functionality.
For the second or third trip mothers it is easier, but first mothers need to start taking into account that breastfeeding can be a quick or time consuming activity: so the armchair not only needs to be comfortable for the first few minutes, but you need it with this powerful property continue as long as the two spend on it. Even for a possible nap!
The durability of the materials is therefore of particular importance, as the armchair must remain in place for at least the time specified by the doctors of exclusive breastfeeding, the first 6 months of the child’s life. But the ideal is that the chair lasts longer because, by creating a bond between mother and baby, this corner can become a special place for both of them.
Although there are very good models with a low backrest and support, the most comfortable ones are those that are wider and sturdier because they end up behaving well and stimulating the mother’s calm and relaxation during breastfeeding.
But whether it’s high or low, here are key points to keep in mind when testing your chair:
1. Good support for the head, back and arms
When it comes to holding the baby, these two supports are essential so that it does not cause discomfort to the mother, especially after a long period of breastfeeding.
The side support for the arms helps hold the baby while breastfeeding, which makes it easier for him to arrive in the womb. Thus the weight is distributed and the task requires less effort from the mother.
It is ideal to be able to support the entire lumbar area of the column in the back of the chair. In this case, ergonomics are of the utmost importance: a well-made armchair has the perfect curve, almost hugs Mom’s back.
In the case of the head, most armchairs don’t have that long back, but you can already separate a pillow if that is the case.
2. Height suitable for mom size
No use, a very high chair for a lower woman, or a low armchair for a tall woman requires a lot of effort to sit and stand up, which can cause pain in the mother and discomfort in the baby, thereby breaking the moment of relaxation.
Be sure to choose the right type of armchair for your body type!
3. Footrest in the armchair or pouf
Another important factor to ensure the mother’s comfort: the footrest. Here we have two main alternatives: the footrest in the armchair or the pouf. These are usually quite famous and are often sold in conjunction with the armchairs, but there are some models that are sold separately.
The pouf is a good resource as it provides very stable support for your legs.
Another type of function that is not used in this way is the chaise longue, those elongated armchairs that already serve to spread our legs in their structure.
Pay attention to the structure of the armchair!
A tip for swing or swivel chairs: it is important to know them well and to be careful when sitting or standing with the baby on your lap. Making sure that the swing or swing allows stability is essential!

This is how you clean and maintain your breastfeeding chair
Some types of care are fundamental in this type of furniture, especially since the mother and baby spend a lot of time in it.
The first tip is a good one, but it must always be adorned with pearls: only use neutral products to clean your armchair! Since the baby is very young, it cannot be exposed to the products with the effects and strong smells, if the product is anti-allergic, even better!
Since it’s a place that can stop dripping milk, the second tip is: think of a material that allows for quick cleaning! Even if we try, the chair is dirty and cannot be washed all the time. After all, use is intense, especially in the baby’s first few months. Any cleaning that can be done quickly with a damp cloth or a little soap will help with the maintenance and use of the chair.
Don’t forget: the breastfeeding chair is only intended for mom and baby, so nothing that you can use as a toy or leave other people in it! This avoids any type of contamination that could get close to the baby.
