I really want a nursing chair but have found the most comfortable to be the expensives chairs the Dutailier range. Has anyone ordered from Mums2be and can compare them to Dutailier?

i just thopught id say that i dont have a nursing chair. i feed baby during the night in my bed sat up propped up with cushions as she sleeps next to me in her cot. during the day i feed her while sat on the sofa while watching tv! shes 17 weeks. if we had a nursing chair it would have been in her bedroom and there is no way i would have gone to sit on it every time she needed feeding. just thought id mention it as for me it would have been an unneccesary cost.

I have a nursing chair and for the first 10 weeks of Hugo's life, I thought it was a complete waste of money as he was in our room in a moses basket and I just fed him in bed.
Now, I can't believe I almost didn't get one! It's in Hugo's room and at 7 and a half months he's still not sleeping through so I use it every single night. It's also very comfortable and on the times when Hugo has had a cold/been ill/particularly hard to settle, I've spent many an hour at a time holding him, and it's been great.
I have a Dutalier one though so can't comment on the other brand.

I didn't have a nursing chair either - I just sit on the sofa. If people are here and I don't want to feed in front of them I just sit on a bed with my back against the pillows (we have a sofa in LOs room for night feeds). I find both options perfectly comfortable.
HOWEVER I was out and about a month or so ago and ended up feeding Toby in one of the feeding rooms in Mamas and Papas. They had a Dutalier nursing chair with footstool and OH MY GOD it was heaven!!! I have never been so comfortable, whether BFing or not!! I immediately came out and told my husband that we would be getting one for our next baby, lol! However I then saw how expensive they are and we have since moved to another country where I don't think you can get them, which is probably for the best!
So I can totally understand why you would want a Dutalier but if it's not within budget I would not bother getting a second rate one unless I was absolutely sure it would be as good - you really don't need one, the sofa/bed are fine (or pretty much any chair would do too). It won't be long before you are out and about with baby during the day and the chair will get used less and less as you get used to feeding LO anywhere and everywhere.
Good luck with whatever you decide - and if you do find something which is really as comfortable as a Dutalier please post and let me know!!

I wasn't sure how much use we'd get out of ours so we bought a pretty little armchair and footstool from Ikea for Matilda's room. As it was, it didn't get used til about 10 weeks when she went in her room. I use it every night now but figure it will also do her a good few years as it doesn't necessarily look like something that's in a baby's room . Just a thought x

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
