Thank you to Bed Gear for providing me with product in exchange for my review. All thoughts are my own.
After the birth of my second child, I immediately started to experience very similar back and shoulder pain to what I experienced after the birth of my son, years prior. I remember being in agonizing pain from my shoulder to my lower back, thanks to breastfeeding round the clock. Both of my babies were born via c-section, so I had the added pain from major surgery as I tried to rest and bond with my babies. It was hard to get comfortable, and for weeks, I rest and slept with a clunky old backrest pillow for extra support.
That old backrest did help a little bit, but it just didn't offer the type of support I needed back then. Fast forward to today, Baby S is 20 months old, and still nurses like a champ. We spend a lot of time cuddling and nursing during the day, and before bed each night. That old back pain often returns since S has become an acrobatic nurser of sorts, refusing to lie still as she drinks. So much fun for me. Lately, my right shoulder has really been hurting, but I have found relief thanks to an amazing backrest from Bed Gear!

This holiday season, I've been enjoying the Bedgear Backrest, which is actually a great gift for kids or adults!
The backrest is plush and cozy, offering amazing support, and cool airflow technology to keep you cool. As much as I love the backrest, it's really going to be a holiday gift for my son B, who is seven years old. It will be a fun addition to his reading nook in his bedroom, or for him to use while he plays video games or watches movies. It has a handy pocket for storing items like books or remote controls, maybe even action figures.
These colors are perfect for a cool kid! The side pocket offers a space to hold belongings like boots, remotes, etc.
The Bedgear Backrest is lightweight and can easily be picked up and carried from room to room.
I love how versatile the Bedgear backrest is. Anyone in our family can use it- from Baby S to my hubby. It's so soft and comfortable and provides wonderful support. It would also make a great gift for anyone who is on bed-rest, recovering from surgery or illness, or for a new mom who is doing a lot of sitting, holding, and feeding a new baby.
Available in various colors!

Baby S and I love cuddling with the Bedgear Backrest!
As much as I'd love to keep the backrest for myself, I know it's going to make an excellent gift for my little man. It's perfect for kids. I might just have to ask Santa to bring me my own!
Bedgear also offers tons of other wonderful performance products, such as mattresses, pillows, and more! I'd love to be able to test one of their mattresses... I can only imagine how amazing they are.
