When I received the pillow I could tell by its structure and weight it would be a comfortable maternity pillow. The pillow is a cylinder shape making it easy to nurse as you can move and place your baby in different positions with no awkwardness. When nursing baby, she seemed to be comfortable and in the right position as the pillow is firm so she didn’t sink. Another great feature is,  you can remove some of the hulls if the pillow is too firm to customize the fit to you. The cover on the pillow is removable and machine washable which is important as we all know that newborns are famous for their spit ups. The buckwheat hulls do not retain heat and are breathable so no worries about your baby overheating and being uncomfortable when nursing. 

My recommendation is to purchase this pillow while pregnant to get the most out of the product as it can be used as a maternity, nursing, and body pillow after. Trust me my husband already has his eye on this one when I am done nursing.
