When should I inflate my Airbornbaby feeding pillow?
Every time your baby needs/wants a feed. It is advised that if you know your baby is due for a feed, you should inflate it a little before and leave it set up. This is because even though 30 seconds is a very short time for it to self inflate, 30 seconds may feel like a very long time when you have a crying baby ready for a feed. For example, if you are in a park or a cafe and know your baby is going to need a feed soon, inflate your pillow beforehand so that's it's ready instantly when you need it.
What happens if my Airbornbaby feeding pillow gets a puncture?
A puncture is very rare but it could happen. As a bonus Airborn decided to include a repair kit with every pillow to ensure that no mum is ever without her pillow.
