The Kensington Breastfeeding Chair is designed for breastfeeding mothers after extensive research and development by Dr Lynn Jones, a Principal Lecturer in Furniture Design at Buckinghamshire New University in High Wycombe.
We are proud to be the longest serving retailer of the Kensington Breastfeeding Chair, having sold it online since 2005. We are the only retailer to offer a selection of 5 different fabric options, free fabric samples and a very personal advice service based on our experiences of using it.
The Kensington Breastfeeding Chair is now available in a choice of 5 coverings:
* Standard (Xtreme Plus) - A wipe clean, fire retardant fabric suitable for everyday use.
* Stratford & Avon - EXCLUSIVE - a contemporary and traditional collection of colours in a superior, luxurious soft feel chenille fabric.
* Agua Stirata - A superior, luxurious soft feel valour fabric which is stain resistant, waterproof, antifungal, antibacterial and hard wearing.
* Vinyl - EXCLUSIVE - for infection control areas and heavy usage such as NHS customers.
* Chieftain Vinyl - EXCLUSIVE - with exceptional infection control properties to counter-act C.Diff, MRSA and E-Coli.
Dr Lynn Jones interviewed, drew, photographed and videoed women while they breastfed. Using this information Dr Jones created the Kensington Breastfeeding Chair in a ergonomic shape offering:
* a low seat to ensure feet are placed squarely and firmly on the floor, keeping the body weight evenly distributed and the spine straight.
* Gentle 'wings' to suggest a feeling of an intimate, enclosed space for mother and baby.
* A gently tilted seat, which ensures the mother's back is flat against the chair back, keeping the spine perfectly supported and removing the need for cushions or pillows.
* An integral, inflatable lumbar 'cushion' which provides perfect support for the lower back.
* A generously wide seat with 'flared' sides to allow an older sibling to 'perch' during breastfeeding.
* The chair legs are 'natural beech' colour.
