The Born Brands Babywedge is a great item to purchase before your baby gets here. It might be one of the last luxuries you buy for yourself for a little while….
As many of us know, pregnancy is very taxing on your body, especially on the lower back during the last few months. Well, the Babywedge can help by offering great support for both your lower and middle back. For the Mum-to-be it is also great as a side sleeping and resting pillow. Our heavily pregnant reviewer said it was a great relief not to feel the pressure of the baby pulling down whilst she was resting. She got a much more relaxed and rested sleep.
Once bub is born then you can really put the Babywedge to work! The Babywedge can help with reflux, colic and flathead syndrome because of the slightly elevated design and the ‘Hug-Me Bars’. The ‘Hug-Me Bars’ are two little cylinders of soft foam placed on either side of the Babywedge and are kept in place with Velcro . These are a great addition to the design of the Babywedge as the can be adjusted or removed altogether. Put a ‘Hug-Me Bar’ slightly under bubs shoulder to elevate and help reduce Flathead syndrome, keep them parallel to your baby’s body to make them feel secure to sleep and also stops them from shifting or rolling around. Also, we found it was great to use the Babywedge under the bassinet mattress to create a little bit of elevation. My bub had a bit of a stuffy nose and this seemed to help him a lot. Made with antibacterial foam you can take comfort in knowing your baby will be safe and well with this design.
As your baby grows the Babywedge can be used for ‘tummy time’. With the ‘Hug-Me Bars’ in place your bub can feel safe and secure. The Born Brand Babywedge is really a well thought of design and can be used months before your baby is born and can be used for many months after! The Babywedge can also come as a kit which includes as spare cover, (colour of your choice), and a travel bag which makes this a great item to pop in the car when visiting people as you will know bub will be secure when sleeping at other places and can be used as a quick change area.
