Comfort & Harmony Mombo Nursing Pillow Review

Mombo Nursing Pillow
Kids II, 2015

The Comfort and Harmony Mombo Nursing Pillow is one of the best ever made. One side is firmer so that it supports baby fully for nursing, and the other side is a little softer for tummy time or sitting practice. The cover has a smooth woven fabric side and a super-soft, fuzzy side, too. That's nice, because it's easy to tell at a glance whether the nursing or lounging side is facing up.

I've used most of the commonly available nursing pillows, and the Mombo is my favorite multipurpose pillow.

It worked really well for me while nursing. The shape is great for support in several nursing positions, and I had no trouble positioning it around my waist comfortably every time. The "arms" of the pillow move outward quite a ways, so this pillow can easily be used for moms of lots of different sizes. It supports better than the Boppy for me, and fits more comfortably, as well. Compared to the My Brest Friend pillow, the Mombo isn't quite as supportive for nursing. However, it's not easy to use the My Brest Friend pillow for anything else other than nursing.

The Mombo Nursing Pillow has a vibration unit that fits inside the pillow, too. Some babies really like the vibration for soothing, so it's a nice upgrade from a basic pillow. The vibration unit can be a little bit touchy, though. I turned it on accidentally a few times. Fortunately my son wasn't ever bothered by it. If your baby isn't a fan of vibration for soothing, it's simple to slide the vibration unit out of the pillow.

If you want to use it in the future, you can just pop it back in.

I really like that you can buy the Mombo pillow without a cover or with one, and extra covers are easy to find, as well. That way you can choose which pieces to buy, or if you just need to replace the pillow or a cover for some reason, you're not stuck buying the whole thing over again.

The covers are so easy to zip off, and they wash up nicely in the machine. You can also put them in the dryer. The covers hold their shape, and the pillow is firm enough, there's no struggle to put the cover back on, either.

The price is fantastic, too. The Comfort & Harmony Mombo Nursing Pillow costs at least 25 percent less than other popular nursing pillows. There's an accessory toy bar available, as well, that turns the Mombo into a mini play gym.
