At a glance:
A product designed with comfort, safety and support in mind. The ClevaCushion 10 in 1 Nursing Pillow is perfect from pregnancy right up to stroller stage and everywhere else in between. The cushion offers perfect back support whilst pregnant and has an adjustable waist strap to give you that extra support and stability needed during feeding. The extra comfort insert allows you to transform the nursing pillow into a luxurious baby nest, and then a perfect booster seat for when your baby is learning to sit upright.
Would you recommend this to other mums?
Stephanie: Most definitely as I felt I could use it in so many ways. I used it as a great back support while I was recovering from labour and delivery. I also used it for a really comfortable sleep support for my little one. We used it while I breastfed and it will be great to use when my daughter is learning to sit up to ensure she is in a safe environment.
Vicky: I would recommend it to other mum's, particularly as an investment during pregnancy to get the most use out of the product. It comes in an easy to use carry bag which also has handles making it easily transportable. My child enjoyed the toys which are attachable to the cushion for use with tummy time, especially the mirror which provided lots of fun. The toys are easily removed afterwards. I have enjoyed using the insert in my pushchair as it provides a much more comfortable sleeping environment and we get much longer naps!
Sarah: The nursing pillow is extremely easy to use, particularly as an aid to breastfeeding. For tiny babies or babies who take longer to feed/cluster feed, it really helps them stay in position. Whether used as a pillow for your baby or around mums shoulders, it gives comfort and support to both. The shape of the pillow really makes it comfortable to lean back on. The cover can be taken off using a zip and washed. The designs are lovely, the one I have is a neutral grey colour with a different design on each side.
How did this product make your life easier?
Philippa: This is a really useful pillow for a breastfeeding mum. It is comfortable to wear and really takes away the strain that holding the baby can put on your arms. It enables me to have my hands free to do other things whilst I am feeding my baby. It is comfortable to wear and easy to put on quickly once the straps are the correct size.
Rachael: The pillow allows for much less stressful feeding, particularly when your baby is first born and you are just getting used to breastfeeding. It also allows you to hold the baby close to you whilst they are sleeping without getting a dead arm. The extra bit that acts as a booster in the pushchair enables me to clip my daughter in much quicker as the straps actually fit, rather than being miles too big, meaning I worry less.
Rebecca: This product is easy to use and it would be an ideal breastfeeding support in the early weeks of breastfeeding. You can get the baby to latch on whilst maintaining a good posture and positioning. I struggled with my posture in the early weeks and this cushion is great for encouraging you to sit straighter to save you getting sore shoulders from hunching over. I took mine to bed and used it for night feeds. The fabric is easy to wipe clean and the padding is sturdy enough to support your baby meaning you are hands-free.
Would you choose this product to win?
Tana: Before receiving the ClevaCushion I hadn't seen anything else like it. There are so many uses out of one product. It's a no-brainer really. It is cost effective and so useful. I am disappointed that I did not have this with my two other children. The cushion is firm but comfortable. I like the design, it is not too fussy or brightly patterned. It fits in with any household without looking overwhelming. Babies just love feeling snug and this helps give us that break when they are sleeping or out and about.
Stephanie: I think most other products like this on the market only have one function but this has so many uses. It was so much more comfortable than other simple cushions on the market. I felt it was a really safe place to lay my baby to sleep. It supported my daughter's natural lying position really well. The covers were washable which is great.
Vicky: I like that this product can be used right through from pregnancy to baby. Whilst there are other products on the market you would have to buy two items whereas the ClevaCushion has it all in one. This makes it much better value. I definitely think this product should be a winning one!
What changes would you make to this product?
Sarah: I really like the design of the nursing pillow and it would come in useful to a breastfeeding mum. The only thing that would put me off slightly is the price. It is very good quality and has many uses. Many of the ten uses shown involve the independent support, rather than the actual pillow. The support is only useful while your baby is very small and most things such as car seats and prams come with their own supports anyway.
Philippa: There is nothing that I can think of to improve the actual product. However, it would be useful if it came with a full set of instructions on how to change it for each of its different uses though. It took me a while to figure out how to attach the insert to make it into the nest for the baby to sit in.
Rachael: The one thing that I had an issue with was that the insert has Velcro to attach it. Whilst it can be tucked away within a zipped compartment, this does not make it very quick or easy to use. If you forget to put it away, it is very scratchy against the babies skin. It would be better if it attached with less rough Velcro or a different type of attachment altogether.
