Why a breastfeeding armchair? know your advantages
Breastfeeding is a very important time for the baby and mother. The act is not only to suppress feeding through breast milk, which contains all the vitamins and nutrients that 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 be done in a safe and comfortable environment for those involved.
Especially in the early days, Mom needs to get used to the right way to hold the baby until she finds the position that will suit both of them. At that moment, it makes all the difference the place and the position in which is the mother.
The breastfeeding armchair is not an indispensable item for the baby's room, but having one in the bedroom is the guarantee of a safe, comfortable and cozy place for all times of breastfeeding where the mother and baby need all the relaxation possible.
Therefore, the breastfeeding armchair ends up drawing attention when it comes to buying the furniture in the room and, along with the crib and the dresser, ends up entering the basic list of many people.
Mom and baby: how to choose the perfect armchair for both
The chair and the armchair are two of the oldest items in the design history, so there are a lot of types of armchairs that may or may not be used as a breastfeeding armchair.
The softest and most comfortable models are best known and preferred when it comes to an armchair for breastfeeding. But when we talk about comfort, many chair models can fall into this category, even those that do not look that soft.
The options are almost infinite: between swivel, swing, puffs, in an older style, modern or contemporary, various fabrics or weave of natural fiber, types of wood, prints, colors and so on.
The ideal to start choosing the perfect armchair is to experiment. In addition to the models and colors, the focus here is functionality.
For second or third trip moms, it's easier, but first-time moms need to start taking into account that breastfeeding can be a quick or time-consuming activity: so the armchair may not only be comfortable in the first few minutes, but it you must continue with this strong feature for as much time as the two spend on it. Even for a possible nap!
Therefore, the resistance of the materials end up having extra importance because the armchair must last at least during the period indicated by the doctors of exclusive breastfeeding, the first 6 months of the child's life. But the ideal is that the chair last longer because, created a bond between mother and baby, this corner can become a special place for both.
Although there are very good models with low backrest and support, the most comfortable ones are those that are broader and more robust because they end up behaving well, stimulating the mother's rest and relaxation during breastfeeding.
But whether it's high or low, here are key points to consider when testing your armchair:
1. Good support for head, back and arms
When it comes to holding the baby, these two supports are fundamental, so it does not cause discomfort in the mother, especially after a longer breastfeeding time.
The lateral support for the arms helps to hold the baby during breastfeeding, facilitating its arrival in the mother's womb. Thus, the weight is distributed and the task requires less effort from the mother.
The ideal is to be able to support the entire lumbar region of the column in the back of the armchair. In this case the ergonomics are of the utmost importance: a well-made armchair has the perfect curvature, almost hugging Mom's back.
In the case of the head, most armchairs do not have such a long backrest, but you can already separate a cushion if that is your case.
2. Height suitable for mommy size
No use, a very high chair for a lower woman or a low armchair for a tall woman require a lot of effort when sitting and getting up, which can cause pain in the mother and discomfort in the baby, breaking the moment of relaxation.
Be sure to choose the right type of armchair for your body type!
3. Footrest in armchair or puff
Another important factor to ensure the comfort of the mother: the foot rest. Here we have two main alternatives: the foot rest in the armchair or the puffs. These are usually quite famous and are often sold in conjunction with the armchairs, but there are some models sold separately.
The puff is a good resource as it ensures a very stable support to rest your legs.
Another type of feature that is not so used is the chaise longue, those elongated armchairs that are already made to spread our legs in its structure.
Attention to the structure of the armchair!
A tip for swing or swivel armchairs: It's important to know them well and be careful when sitting or standing with the baby on your lap. Ensuring that the swing or swing of it allows stability is essential!

How to clean and maintain your breastfeeding armchair
Some types of care are fundamental in this type of furniture, especially since the mother and the baby spend a lot of time in it.
The first tip is well beaten, but it needs to be always beaded: use only neutral products to clean your armchair! As the baby is very young, it can not be exposed to products with action and strong odors, so if the product is antiallergic, better yet!
As it is a place that can stop with milk drops, the second tip is: think of a material that allows a quick cleaning! Even if we try, the chair is dirty and can not be washed all the time: after all, the use is intense, especially in the first months of the baby. Any cleaning that can be done quickly with a damp cloth or with a little soap will help in the maintenance and use of the chair.
Also, do not forget: the breastfeeding armchair is for the exclusive use of mom and baby, so nothing to use as a toy storage or let other people stay in it! This avoids any type of contamination that may come close to the baby.
