I think this is the one I have decided on. But I am still not sure on the sizing. Can anyone help me??

Also did anyone actually use the pillow for their newborns?

I am 5'3.5" My bra size pre preg was a 36c on the tightest setting - now I am on the loosest. I was about 135# before preg.& haven't gained much yet. Only up to about 142

Need any info besides that -

Thank you!! THis is the one gift I am buying for myself!

I have heard that those run big, so maybe getting one a tad smaller that you measure. It is always easy to tack it up if it is too big, but you can't really take it out if it is too small. Happy shopping!

New Natives run large, but they are easy to take in, and they have directions on their website. One thing they say is that the sling should not go any lower than the top of yuor thigh, but I think it's more accurate to say that the sling should not go any lower than your hip bone, and no higher than your waistline, for maximum comfort.
