When blessed nest founder Heather Anderson injured her right hand in 2002, she was told that her career as an Interior Designer and Seamstress was over. She had to take all of the things she knew how to do, and figure out what to do next.
She wanted a way to combine all of her experience, from sewing to being a Nanny. Around the same time a friend had just given birth to her first daughter. She was having trouble breastfeeding, and the nursing pillows available to her at that time only added to her frustration. She was certain that Heather could come up with something better. And she did.
"Truly a pillow that
is as natural &
beautiful as breastfeeding itself."
The Nesting Pillow that was inspired in response to a friend’s practical need has evolved into a truly exceptional pillow used by families all over the world. The unique shape and organic buckwheat hull filling allows it to contour to any body, providing the most support and comfort possible for both mom and baby. Highly recommended by health care providers and used in birthing classes and by Lactation Consultants, women will benefit from the Nesting Pillow throughout their pregnancy and at every stage of parenting.
All Nesting Pillows are lovingly handmade in Blessed Nest’s our Lawrence, KS studio under strict supervision and fair labor practices. The inside pillow is covered in 100% organic cotton canvas, filled with 100% organic buckwheat and covered with an easily removable slipcover made of 100% organic velour on the top and 100% organic cotton on the sides.
The Eco Nesting Pillow, designed exclusively for Hazelwood Children, is made of 100% organic fabrics that come in gorgeous nature-inspired prints. Truly a pillow that is as natural and beautiful as breastfeeding itself.
