Following baby’s birth, the LUNA can be doubly useful for
feeding. First position: you can wrap the LUNA around your tummy while laying
it flat on your thighs. It will take the form of both tummy and child perfectly
when baby is placed on the cushion. This position gives you another advantage:
you can push a small amount of the hulls into both extremities of the LUNA,
then cross the extremities behind your lower back before leaning back. By
placing the two extremities of the cushion on the lumbar vertebrae region, you
create excellent lumbar support. This promotes a good spinal position with
little effort. With your spine in the optimal position, you will be able to
fully relax during the whole feeding period without slumping forward or leaning
backwards, which places the spine in very bad positions. With the LUNA cushion,
you will be able to feed your baby while keeping your spine in an optimal
position. This will help you relax your lower back muscles and re-energize. A
good vertebra alignment helps promote good blood flow to the nerves and veins
in the spinal area. Nerve impulses and blood flow are thus optimized! You can
easily cross and position the LUNA’s two extremities by pulling on the
cushion’s two straps. Finally, you can adjust the LUNA’s height by either
removing or adding buckwheat hulls from the cushion. The combined height of
your thighs, cushion and baby lying on his side should be at equal height with
your breast. As baby grows, hulls can be taken out to reduce the cushion’s
height (the adjustment procedure is explained later). Second position: shoulder
strap (similar to a guitar strap position). Tie the LUNA’s straps together and
pass over your head and one shoulder. The straps thus rest on one shoulder and
the cushion rests upon your thighs and tummy. You can then place baby inside
the nest. The baby is now in an inclined hammock-style position, as compared to
the previous horizontal position. In this position, you can also place a small
amount of hulls on the lower back region. The LUNA’s symmetry even allows you
to feed twins! Furthermore, the LUNA weighs in at 3.7 kg which, in strap mode
(like a guitar strap), is fairly easy to carry.
The LUNA cushion can serve as an ergonomic mattress. We
believe this is the LUNA’s second best function. Just fold it in half like two
arms preparing to embrace your baby. You can maintain It In this position by
tying the two straps together and even by attaching between themselves the
smaller straps used to attach the case to the cushion. By attaching them more
or less tightly, you can thus adjust the size of the nest. Baby’s head rests on
the middle part of the moon and his whole spine rests within the nest crater,
which respects the spine’s natural curve. Another advantage of the mattress: it
secures the baby, who feels nestled and comforted. The crater also prevents
baby from falling or turning over, thus reducing the risk of suffocation.
Another advantage and perhaps the most important one: LUNA prevents your baby’s
head from flattening when he is lying down. It simply will not occur! Why not?
Because it is the base of the head, and not the top part, that rests on the
cushion. It is the top part of baby’s head which deforms before the age of 6
months. It is this type of folding U-shaped cushion that many midwives use in
France. One final advantage: you can adjust the mattress’ inclination by
spreading out the hulls to your liking. By placing them in the center of the
moon, you will get maximum inclination, which is excellent if baby is congested
or has digestion problems.
By folding moon’s two arms and attaching the two straps, you
will create a small crater inside the LUNA cushion. By attaching them more or
less tightly, you can adjust the size of the crater. This crater is perfect for
maintaining baby in a semi-inclined position. For this type of use, make sure
that all hulls are located in the center of the moon with none in the
extremities. In this manner, you will obtain sufficient support for a
semi-inclined position. Baby’s bottom will be in the crater with his head at
the top of the cushion. This use is excellent for letting baby play in security
while you attend to other matters.
Lastly, you can use the LUNA cushion to teach baby to sit
upright. You can start to train baby to do this at around three months of age.
Even if baby is unable to stay in a perfectly upright sitting position, you can
surround him with pillows (right up to armpit level). His whole body is thus
surrounded and supported by buckwheat hulls and he can remain seated in a
straight and upright position. You can attach the main straps between
themselves to ensure that the cushion does not slide. Training to sit in this
position helps baby’s muscles develop. As he acquires more and more muscle
tone, you can gradually untighten the LUNA cushion. When baby is finally able
to sit on his own, the cushion can be left around him for security if ever he
should fall unexpectedly.
The LUNA cushion is naturally curved in the shape of a moon. It is important to
make sure that the crater inside the cushion is not stretched out beyond the
natural curvature (as shown on photo 1). This could provoke wear and tension
that may cause the fabric to tear. This type of incident is not covered by the
cushion’s guarantee. We also recommend that you hold the cushion by its two
straps when carrying.
