Dr. Browns Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow review and #GIVEAWAY {US and Canada}

It's been just over a month since my last blog post. I've been busy!! Having three littles has been great so far and I'm still learning daily how to give each one what they need when they need it!
Allison is almost a year old! She's a great baby! Loves to talk and coo and is just now about 13 lbs! She's a tiny girl and we love her! Despite her being so small, she sure can eat! She is exclusively breastfed and LOVES to nurse!
I was so excited when I was contacted and asked if I would like to review the Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow by Dr. Brown!
This is what I received:
 I was sent a cute blue cover with elephants on it :)

 This is the way the pillow looks! I love the fit!

Here is some more information on the pillow (taken from Dr. Brown's website):
"The Gia nursing pillow's patented angled design positions baby at an incline, which may help aid digestion and help prevent reflux. The pillow also sits taller and wider than other pillows, giving moms a wide variety of ways to position the pillow for maximum comfort.
The pillow and covers are made of soft, stitched fabric are 100 percent cotton. Both the pillow and the covers are machine washable, and the pillow can be used with or without a cover. The Gia has gained popularity quickly in part because the shape and design was created by a Lactation Consultant who took mom’s needs into consideration and designed a simple, yet amazingly versatile feeding pillow.
  • Designed by a Lactation Consultant
  • Angled feeding may help digestion and reduce reflux and other feeding problems
  • Wider, flatter pillow surface helps prevent baby from rolling down
  • Patented, non-flat design positions baby at incline
  • Thick-to-thin design to grow with baby for virtually limitless nursing positions
  • Quilted 100% Cotton Shell
  • Machine Wash & Dry/Retains shape throughout washing
  • Use with or without cover"
We LOVE this nursing pillow! We use it every day! I love that it's made of 100% cotton and no foam like in other nursing pillows (my breast friend) that can off gas harmful chemicals!

I love that it's angled! It really does make a difference, especially in the early weeks when you and baby are both learning to breastfeed! This angled nursing pillow was designed by a lactation consultant! It is believed that the angled pillow will help with digestion, reduce reflux and any other feeding problems.
But boy, is it not only useful, but it's so comfy!
I would sit up in bed the first few months and nurse Allison using this pillow and often woke up to her lying on the pillow (still nursing) as I had dozed off. There is no arching your back to try and get your breast into baby's mouth... it is a perfect fit!

There is a great video on Youtube that explains all the benefits of this pillow. You can watch it here!

These pillows can be used with or without a cover. I was sent the really cute blue cover with elephant prints on it along with my pillow!

You can purchase a Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow directly from Amazon for only $29.99!
The covers are also available at Amazon ranging from $10-$14 (depending on color and print)!

But wait... that's not all! Dr. Browns is giving one Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow and cover (winner's choice of boy/girl or gender neutral) to one of you!!
