The Sweet Pea Changing Pad from the Brentwood Home line of products has quickly and permanently replaced the changing pad I was using before I was sent this one to try out!  This pad is much longer than the one I had been using, which is great to accommodate my growing boy.

Here’s Lucas on our old changing pad (turquoise) which is much shorter than the new Sweet Pea changing pad.

The changing pad features the same grey and white bubble design as the nursing pillow in the Brentwood Home baby line.  I like that it is gender neutral and will blend easily with nursery decorations.

This pad has a very soft cover that can be easily removed and washed if needed.  I have washed and dried it and noted no shrinkage or anything.  Underneath the cover is a waterproof layer that zips around the changing pad and can also be removed.

Here’s Lucas enjoying the changing pad!

 

One of my favorite features of this changing pad is that it is has tall sides, making it harder for the baby to wiggle out.   This retails for $50 on the company’s website, and is also available on Amazon and at Costco at the same price.  This is a great product that I use all the time!

A helpful tip is to buy some foamy shelf liner to fold up and place under the changing pad.  It has a grip of sorts so the changing pad doesn’t move around when your little one wiggles.  You’ll only need this if you have a fake changing table- on top of a dresser-  like me!

Conclusion

This changing pad makes a great baby shower gift. It is something that you won’t find in a Target or Walmart and will look great in your baby’s new room.

Brentwood Home Honeysuckle Nursing Pillow Review 4

Brentwood Home Honeysuckle Nursing Pillow Review

This nursing pillow from Brentwood Home is a great product.  It does what the popular Boppy pillow does not do: hold its shape to support the baby.  My guess is that a mom or two from Brentwood Home were underwhelmed with the Boppy pillow and set out to make a better version of it.  They succeeded!

Here’s the cool box the pillow comes in, and from this angle you can get an idea of the size of it!

The Honeysuckle nursing pillow features a soft grey and white bubble design which is gender neutral and coordinates with their changing pad as well.  I love that it’s an easy way to tie your baby items together!  The pillow is made of a wonderfully soft cotton & like all Brentwood Home products, it is manufactured right here in the U.S.A.  The cotton cover also can zip on and off easily for washing when needed, since babies are a messy business!

Here’s a close up picture of the grey and white bubble design.

Another use of this pillow is to prop up infants.  They can work on tummy time and building neck strength using the pillow as a bolster, or they can just be propped up in it and take in the sights around them!

Here’s Lucas showing off how a baby can sit up using this pillow! Of course, he’s a little big for this, but he posed so nicely!

I shared this nursing pillow with a friend who also tried this out for nursing and she said that she really liked it as well.  She also mentioned that its competitor gets smooshed down so easily that it wasn’t a good support for nursing.  This pillow holds the baby’s weight better and allows for easier nursing without using mom’s arm strength very much at all.

Conclusion

The $50 price tag is a very fair one, considering the quality of the item, and that it will definitely hold up through multiple babies.  It is worth the investment!  Note: the nursing pillow sells on Brentwood Home’s website for $50, but on Amazon for $67.44 and free shipping.  As always Brentwood home makes all their products including this nursing pillow in their own factory in Los Angeles.

This nursing pillow would make a great gift for a first time mom or an experienced mom since it is far superior to its competition and looks great!
