You get what you pay for

review by jelinifer


I bought this stool to make learning to nurse my new baby comfortable since I have very short legs. I chose this stool on a whim since it was the cheapest in the store as well. The stool raises my knees to the perfect level to be able to easily rest my son in my lap to nurse him. It's a sturdy little stool and I have stood on it more than once without worry of it falling apart. You do have to assemble the pieces, but it is very easy to put together. I am dissappointed that the paint on the stool is starting to chip off after only 8 months of use, but it was also inexpensive compared to the other nursing stools I found.


ProsCons
sturdy constructionThe white paint chips off easily

Did its job

review by theetieri


This stool was perfect for positioning my baby when nursing. It was inexpensive and now that my daughter is 21 months, she uses it as a sitting stool.

Perfect footstool

review by storiesinthesoil


I remember my mom having this stool when my sister was a baby so I got one when I was pregnant with my son.  It is miraculous how much more comfortable nursing in the rocker is with this footstool!  It really reduces strain and makes things much easier.  I highly recommend these!

Makes Newborn Feeding Easy

review by abrain


This stool has the perfect position for nursing a newborn and beyond!

Makes latch easier and more comfortable for your neck, shoulders, and back.

You'll be amazed at what the proper position will do for your enjoyment of  nursing.

My husband and I still fight for the rocking chair and footstool to drink our coffee in the morning.

LOVE THE NURSING STOOL

review by gretchen_pdx


This was a great garage sale find! I knew I wanted one of these, and I have not been disappointed. I sit for hours in my rocker and having my feet raised makes a huge difference. When you breastfeed full time, comfort is paramount and this stool definitely aids in your comfort.

A must have!

review by ashleyb87


I love this stool!  Even though I'm not nursing right now we still use it-it's a perfect kid seat while I help get little ones socks on and stuff.  I end up sitting on it while changing diapers.  It was an awesome nursing stool and helped me get in just the right position on the couch to nurse.  I think every nursing mother should have one.


ProsCons
Great height, natural wood goes with most decornot padded
