This time round with little Nora I splurged* and bought a gorgeous Liberty covered nursing pillow from one of my favourite shops in Copenhagen, Crème de la Crème à la Edgar. I cannot tell you how much I love this pillow! It is incredibly comfortable and easy to use, is very well made, and it is oh so lovely to look at - important for the hours and hours spent on the couch nursing a little one!
The inner cushion is made from unbleached cotton and is filled with 100% organic spelt shells (according to the website, spelt shells are known for their ability to calm and not overheat). The cushion is designed and produced in Denmark, and best of all, Crème de la Crème à la Edgar has just opened an online shop and will ship internationally.

* In the end it wasn't really a splurge since the "cheaper" polyester-filled cartoon character-covered nursing pillow that I had for Charlie was almost the same price as this lovely pillow. And I had to throw that pillow away when I had finished nursing Charlie as it had not held up very well to daily use.
