We’ve yet to dedicate a product review to just one product or host a giveaway… until today. And until we met My Brest Friend. My Brest Friend was introduced to us by our lactation consultant in the hospital and we actually purchased ours while we were still in the hospital. But My Brest Friend is not just for breast feeding mamas, those bottle feeding will find it helpful too. In keeping with our traditional review format, you’ll find all the details below but bottom line this My Brest Friend is awesome.
We are giving away a Green Deluxe My Brest Friend to one lucky reader. To enter, leave a comment on this review with your favorite baby product and head over to Facebook and “like” us. The winner will be selected at random and announced Friday, July 6th. Good luck!
The Wise Baby Rating:
Highlights: Developed in a think tank of new moms, babies and breastfeeding experts it’s no surprise My Brest Friend is as functional as it is. The pillow actually wraps around your entire mid section and securely latches creating a sturdy platform for you to rest baby. My Brest Friend, unlike other nursing pillows stays firmly in place which allows you to keep comfortable, without having to re-adjust during the feeding. To me, this is crucial… readjusting can be difficult and painful! (not to mention this disrupts the feeding) The pillow is contoured to support your arm and elbow which helps to eliminate tension on your shoulders and back. The firm, flat and secure “mattress” helps prevent baby from falling out of position all the while creating a comfortable place to rest.
Lowlights: The only comlpainet we have is that the strap, at times and more so initially, can be difficult to buckle with one hand. As we’ve been using it more it’s getting easier for me to manage with baby in hand.
Bottom Line: My Brest Friend has been a lifesaver! Eloise seems to love the comfy, soft fabric and the firm cushion and it has been a game changer in getting her into the correct position for feedings. The cushion is also large enough that when she is done feeding and sleepy she can just roll over and take a little snooze right there. The roomy cushion also makes it super easy for me to pick her up and transfer to her cradle or my arms to continue her nap.
While this product is marketed specifically to breast feeding moms I also think non-breastfeeding moms would love My Brest Friend too. It certainly serves as that extra set of hands we could all use when feeding.
