Great breast/formula feeding pillow
The pillow is suited for breast/formula feeding, it reduces the strain on arms and shoulders when holding baby. the clip holds the brest friend pillow in place on our waist, much better than using an ordinary pillow as baby will drop in between the gap and will need to keep on holding/adjusting pillow in place. my husband uses it when feeding baby too. the surface of brest friend pillow is very firm and supportive, important when sitting baby up for burping. will definitely recommend this product to mums.
Purchased in October 2020 at Catch for $80.00.
I love it!
I used it with my 3 children. It provides great back support and frees my arms during feeding. It lift away baby's weight from me. especially in hot days, both me and my babies are comfortable on it.
Saved my tied limbs
I found this pillow makes feeding so much more comfortable. My wrists and arms and back were sore from holding my baby and th S just takes the pressure off. my baby often falls asleep on this pillow too which makes it easier to put hi, back to bed after a feed.
Pure Breast and Back Bliss!
This product is worth every dollar!!! I’m a mummy of seven that has used this item on EVERY single child. I have endured severe lower back problems for many years, yet when using this pillow my back ache eases and my posture is straight. There is no strain on the breasts or back. This pillow supports newborn weight to at least an 18 month olds weight. The foam is firm and is still intact after all these years. Very hygienic as the cover can be taken off and easily washed by hand or in the washing machine. You can also buy additional covers if o...ne is in the wash! The strap can be adjusted pending your size which makes this item “custom designed”. Breast feeding causes you to be thirsty and this pillow has catered for exactly that! A water bottle holder in a very practical position. It is also a great size for dummies, remote controls and of course those much needed delectable snacks! Most importantly this pillow is also very comfortable and stable for you baby. This pillow is firm and gives support for you and your baby. It is hygienic as the cover can be taken off and washed in the washing machine or by hand.There are additional covers that can be bought.The foam stays firm and does not deteriorate over time.The strap is adjustable pending your size.When in use you have TWO free hands!!!The drink holder is very practical and a great size! The pillow is a little bulky so if you need to take it out and about it does take a little extra room. It is an item that cannot be bent and is not foldable.
Great - so you can feed too
I purchased My Brest Friend after a friend recommended it. She was correct in that it is brilliant to use and very comfortable. I am stilling using it for my 5 and a half month old who is now 8kg and will continue to use it as long as I can. It certainly saves your back and shoulders.
I have also found that I can easily have a drink (water of course) or a bite to eat whilst feeding my son. Also easy to wash and it is quick and easy to clip on
Best feeding pillow!
I love this pillow. It is firm, high and adjustable. The cover is easy to clean and replace. Using this pillow is so much better for your back than a regular pillow or other brands. It straps to you and is adjustible for the perfect fit. I highly recommend it to breast feeding mothers as it saves your aching back!!
Comfortable, firm, adjustable
Expensive but worth it!
Would not have been able to breastfeed without it!
When I was learning to breastfeed, my back got really sore and I almost gave up. "My Brest Friend" changed all that! It supports both you and baby & was the key to my successful breastfeeding. My baby used to fall asleep on it - it's very comfy for both mum and baby.
Comfortable, easy to use
We had some trouble establishing breastfeeding in the early days and this pillow really helped me to get my baby into a good position to help perfect her attachment. I love this pillow, it clips around the middle so once you have it in position it stays there and you can focus on feeding baby. Before I was using regular pillows and constantly readjusting which disrupted the feed time. Its a good height, I have large breasts and this pillow allows me to have one hand to hold the breast and one hand for the baby's head. I don't get sore arms or b...ack from holding the baby up. It keeps baby well positioned and since she sometimes takes up to an hour to feed this is very helpful! It works really well for both the cradle hold and the football (side) hold. I would highly recommend this pillow to anyone, it's great! Easy to use, keeps baby at a good height for feeding, clips around the middle so it doesn't slip away like regular pillows, nice firm surface supports baby's head nicely, handy pocket for keeping spare breast pads in, machine washable removable cover. None! Was a bit expensive for a pillow (I paid around $85) but considering I use it multiple times every day I think its well worth it.
A "must" if you want to breast-feed comfortably
I used a My Brest Friend feeding pillow until my daughter was about 10 months old, and i really couldn't have done without it. It made breastfeeding so much more comfortable, bringing my baby to the perfect height for her to attach. I also found the little pocket quite handy for keeping things like my iphone or remote control (or snacks!). I was lucky to borrow one off a friend, but this time around (i'm due in 2 months), I'll definitely be buying one. Can't do without!
Made breastfeeding a lot easier and more comfortable.
Made feeding a lot easier
I have use My Breast Friend since I got home from the hospital. It has made breastfeeding so much more comfortable and I still use it today with my almost 9 month old son.
Easy to use. Comfortable. Provides good back support.
My son would fall asleep breastfeeding early on - perhaps he was a little too comfortable. Would love extra covers to be available in Australia.
No other breast-feeding pillow can compare, as none are anywhere near as stable or comfortable to use as this one. You forget you have it on! My son loves it and even snoozes peacefully on it after his feed. The key feature is its flat shelf-like top, and the fact that once it's on it does not require constant readjusting. If you want a transformed breastfeeding experience, get this pillow. Your back and shoulders will be saved - no wonder all lactation consultants recommend it.
Comfortable, stable, a joy to use, soft & washable cover, adjustab...
Look around if you want to get it new, you'll find a store that charges about $10 less. I bought mine secondhand on ebay.
I keep mine clipped up to prevent further splitting when moving it about.
I use a terry towling nappy over the top so I don't have to bother with the issue of unzipping and washing the cover.
Especially good for mum's who've had C-Sections
Variety of covers.
I think it's awesome for feeding, a normal pillow will just not suffice.
It was overpriced in many stores, apart from being expensive already for a...
Love it love it love it! broke the plastic latch when slammed it in the car door. Company sold me a reasonably priced replacement cover with latch in a jiffy. SOOO happy with this product and the company!
This pillow is the reason why I am still able to breastfeed at 11 months! Being a small woman, it was impossible to find a pillow that raised baby up to be able to latch on properly without me having to lean over and make my shoulders and back kill. Once I got this pillow (cheap second hand on ebay) I actually started to relax and really enjoy breastfeeding! Love the latch to strap it on.
Like the idea of a detachable pillow to raise baby's head a little bit more. Hope they add this onto future models.
This product was an absolute lifesaver. It made me so much more comfortable so I could just focus on feeding the baby. I originally tried using a V shaped pillow but I found that it kept slipping and my baby kept sliding between myself and the pillow, so I was aching more trying to hold both the baby and the pillow! My brest friend was great for the reasons I stated above. The down side is the cost if you were to buy new, but I got mine cheap second hand off ebay. I'm not bothered that its second hand since the cover is washable. (But bear in m...ind that a lot of baby vomit does go into the pillow which I don't think is washable so it might not be for everyone!) Overall loved this product and would recommend it. Clips on so the pillow doesn't slip, flat and firm so the baby doesn't roll. Gives good support to prevent aching arms, neck and back. Cover is removable and machine washable. None (except cost but I bought mine cheap second hand)
Highly recommend in buying this pillow if breast feeding. Yes it's a little expy, but i think it's worth it from getting bad back or shoulder pain due to not being supported properly. The first couple of weeks i used normal pillows which kept moving and started to get pains in the arm/back due to bad support. I like how you can take off the pillow case and wash it whenever it gets dirty.
Gives the support that no other pillow can give when breastfeeding. Doesn't move around.
Little Expy and a little bulky for a pillow, but i guess it's the price u pay for something that does it's job!
Questions & Answers
Can you actually walk around with this while breastfeeding?
When bub 2 is born bub 1 will be 21 months and I won't be able to always sit still for long, esp if she takes as long as he did in the first few months!
Thanks in advance!
Yes I do this all the time! I did it when I had just the one and now it's particularly useful now that she is 2.5 Years old and I've got a 4 month old, so multi tasking is so great when I'm in a rush and the little one needs to feed.
