Breastfeeding can be one of the most challenging routines a new mother faces. Many women stop nursing due to trouble with latching, not knowing that proper positioning might make all the difference. A lot of new moms consult with lactation specialists only after becoming exasperated and exhausted, feeling they should instinctively know how to breastfeed their own baby, and not understanding why they’re having trouble. This My Brest Friend pillow is designed to give moms the confidence they need to feel secure and position them for breastfeeding success. My Brest Friend is here to help alleviate some of these stresses and demystify what many new mothers and fathers experience during those first precious months of your newborn baby’s life.
Enjoy The Support You’ve Been Looking For
Discover the solution in the Original Nursing Pillow. After years of thorough research and real-life testing, it is specifically designed to make breastfeeding more comfortable. Its supportive backrest encourages good posture during breastfeeding and prevents neck and shoulder strain, too. Also great at minimizing strain at the elbows and wrists, so you can focus all your attention on your little one.
Innovative Shape Keeps Baby Close
My Brest Friend boasts a unique shape and is the only pillow that fits snuggly against the wearer, eliminating the gap that most crescent-shaped nursing pillows have. This is especially important to facilitate proper latching for consistent feedings. Keep baby safe and sound and held securely in place on our firm and flat pillow throughout the entire nursing session.
Designed Just For You
Keep all your maternity supplies and accessories easily within reach in the super-convenient side pocket. Store extra bottles, nipple cream or even your smartphone to avoid getting up in the middle of nursing and disrupting baby.
Wrap around design provides welcome support to your weary back and sore shoulders. My Brest Friend Original Nursing Pillow surrounds your body for the ideal position for baby. Clever silent-release straps lets you slip away quietly when your newborn nods off and unlatches without waking the babe.
My Brest Friend strives to provide new mothers with the most intuitive and useful maternity products on the market. We are proud to be among the most preferred brands for lactation consultants and mothers alike and keep the comfort of mother and child at the forefront of everything we create.
Popular Positions for Nursing
Football: Mom puts her arm under her baby and supports them using her palm on their back and to support their head. Lay them down on a pillow next to you with their head at the end pointing down toward your feet, then put your arm underneath them and bring them up to your breast with their nose in line with the nipple, holding them similar to the way you would a football. Cradle: Your baby will be on its back horizontally and resting comfortably. If you’re feeding from the left breast, its head will rest in the crook of that same arm. The rest of your arm will be under the baby’s back and you’ll need to make sure that its spine, neck and head are fully supported while its nose is in line with the nipple from which they are feeding. Relax & Snuggle: Mom can lay on her side propped up with pillows behind her and the baby is laid on their side next to her at her breast, using the breastfeeding pillow to keep them in place. Bring your arm over your head to cradle your baby’s head and make sure it is properly placed at your breast as they feed.

* I love that I can clip it around my waist, and then move around, without needing to awkwardly put it back on while while holding my baby.
* It's adjustable
* Very cute patterns
* Great Design
* The pocket it really handy
* I mean, the name, who doesn't love it?
* My baby grew very fast, he was very tall, so he was hanging his legs off the sides by the time he was 6 months old.
* It is just a little pricey, but not too bad.
All things considered, I love this pillow, and I'll be using it for our daughter when she gets here in November!

We bought this because her sister and good friend both separately recommended it.
My thought was...it's just a pillow..but I'm here writing this review because she LOVES this and she says it makes a HUGE difference over any other type of pillow. Her sister nursed for almost 2 years with this pillow saving her a lot of energy/effort. Her other friend nursed for 18 months.
If you don't see same-day shipping (and you live in a big city) keep choosing different colors/styles as they are different prices and different ones have different shipping speeds. The wife didn't care about colors or style and wanted any of them with same-day shipping since our newborn was days old and wanted anything that would help her feed better. Definitely worth it! Happy wife, happy life, happy baby!
I like that I can remove the cover and wash it, but I do have concerns about longevity of the product as every time I remove the cover to wash it, the inside sponge does show some wear, but I guess that is expected. It would be better for the manufacturer to have a liner along with the cover so constant removing and inserting outer cover, doesn't rub off on the sponge directly. I did NOT receive this product for free and neither am I affiliated with brest friend by any means. It's just a great product.
