Using a nursing stool while breastfeeding is one of the most helpful things mom can do to be comfortable. By resting her feet on an adjustable stool such as the My Brest Friend Adjustable Nursing Stool, a breastfeeding mom is positioned ergonomically correct in order to bring the baby up close for an ideal latch. - Nancy Held, RN, MS, IBCLC, VP Clinical & Educational Services, DayOne Centers, Inc. Benefits of using a nursing stool. A nursing stool can help a breastfeeding mother minimize lower back, shoulder, neck, and wrist pain by helping her maintain a supportive, comfortable position throughout the feed. Place your feet on the stool at a comfortable distance so your knees are bent at a 90-degree right angle, creating a flat lap. Be sure you are sitting all the way back in the chair. By elevating your feet on the stool, you are tilting your pelvis back into the chair, reducing stress on your lower back and shoulders. Place a firm feeding pillow, such as the My Brest Friend pillow on your lap, to raise the baby closer to your breast for latching. Support your baby with the pillow, decreasing the stress on your wrist. This will minimize the potential for developing carpal tunnel syndrome. Correct positioning at the breast minimizes nipple soreness and increase your comfort throughout the feeds. Some assembly required. Do not use the adjustable nursing stool as a step stool for children over 40 lbs.
