# 12 Blessed Nest

Donna over at Blessed Nest is one of my dear friends and has helped me SO much through this Eli's Lids Journey. She is one of those people you just love to talk to because she is genuine and laughs at all your jokes. She is also one of the masterminds behind Blessed Nest Nesting Pillows (the best nursing pillow out there!!).
One of the latest additions to the Blessed Nest product line is the Nest Egg. The Nest Egg is an awesome nursing pillow by itself or as a compliment to the Nesting Pillow or... well...

Tell me a bit about your family…
I have a wonderful husband and two sweet little girls, Tabitha age 6 and Sophie age 4. They are both Daddy's girls and I'm sure Tabi will be taking up skateboarding soon just like Daddy. Both girls love Ballet and we are a home school family.
How was Blessed Nest born?
After giving birth to my first daughter, I was having trouble breastfeeding, and the nursing pillows available to me at that time only added to my frustration. I was certain that Heather could come up with something better. And she did. The Nesting Pillow saved my back and my breastfeeding experience.
The Nesting Pillow that was inspired in response to a friend’s ( my) practical need has evolved into a truly exceptional pillow used by families all over the world. The unique shape and organic buckwheat hull filling allows it to contour to any body, providing the most support and comfort possible for both mom and baby.
What are some of the things people use the Nest Egg for?
The Nest Egg was originally designed as a take a long nursing pillow. It is light weight and fits nicely in a diaper bag. Just as the Nesting Pillow has uses way beyond nursing so does the Nest Egg. Use the Nest Egg like this.....
* great travel pillow for adults and kids.
* car seat pillow
* snuggle pillow
* sleep pillow for children over age 2.
* doll pillow
* security "pillow" easy for any walking child to drag around by the tag..my girls take it everywhere!
Who makes all these amazing Nesting Pillows and nest eggs?
Heather Anderson who is the founder, designer, CEO and head creative crafter at Blessed Nest. She is also my sweet friend who originally designed the Nesting Pillow just for me. Our sewing team is made up of Moms, Aunties and Grandmas who enjoy working from home. Lovingly made in the USA!
What are 3 easy things for those of us who want to be more “green?”
Take the common sense approach. We use organic fabrics and buckwheat in our products at Blessed Nest not because we are "green" but because it is safe for Mom, baby and the planet. It just makes sense! Heather's research found that chemicals in fabrics and pesticides cause breathing difficulties in babies and young children. There was no other choice in her opinion then to use organic. No need to compromise when we want what is safe for our families. We have become pretty "green" in the past 6 years.
Here are some choices we've made on our journey to make our homes safe, healthy and eco friendly.
1) Buy organic foods. I save $200.00 a month buying organic. I can't just throw items in the cart. I read all labels and shop at stores who buy locally and or fair trade. COOK MORE! Save money! Support farms in the USA.
2) Switch your cleaning products over to organic.
3) Get rid of all plastic. You won't miss it!

What an awesome product! One of my friends was having lots of trouble breastfeeding; so frustrating and disheartening. I'm going to tell my pregnant and new mommy friends about the Nest Egg.

I love the Sonoma fabric on the nesting pillow, and To the Moon and Back on the Nest Egg.
