I originally purchased this because my son had reflux (GERD) and it was supposed to help having him at an incline but I found the incline was not steep enough and it didn’t help after all. HOWEVER, I used it when he was playing with kicking toys so he could see what he was doing better.
I also ended up making it a permanent fixture in my bathroom until he was 7 months old. Even though he learned to roll over and move around 5 months, he didn’t realized he could roll out of this wedge pillow until 7 months so I had some less-stress showers for quite some time!
This wedge can also be used in the family bed/cosleeping situations to keep your baby in one place… I think we all create a gravity well that baby can easily fall into if we aren’t careful so this presents a good opportunity to prevent that from happening.
