Okay you guys, this pillow is the bomb dot com! It’s called “My Breastfriend” and it couldn’t be more fitting. I used it for the longest time after I had my son. It straps around your waist so it doesn’t slip around, and it keeps your baby at the perfect angle to latch on and nurse. Lactation Consultants recommend it all the time; it’s their number one choice! It seriously helped my neck pain SO much. I love the little pocket on the side too, because I was able to keep burp cloths, nipple cream (and sometimes snacks) right next to me, easy to grab. They have some really cute covers too, so you can match it to any nursery theme you have. It’s the perfect gift for new or expecting moms! So if you have a baby shower coming up and you’re not sure what to buy, I highly recommend ordering one of these babies.
Here are some cool things about the My Breastfriend Nursing Pillow:
- 100% Cotton
- Wrap around nursing pillow design secures to the body helping mom and baby maintain positioning and latch-on
- Back rest helps you maintain good posture during feeding and prevents sore back and neck
- Arm and elbow rests eliminate shoulder stress
- Firm, flat cushion keeps baby from rolling when breastfeeding
- Convenient pocket keeps water bottles, burp cloths, phone, and other breastfeeding accessories or items within reach.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used this thing, especially when Marshall was a newborn. I would be so exhausted, and my arms would feel like they’re about to fall off from holding him in place to nurse. He took about an hour and a half to feed each time, so that only left me with 30 minutes to an hour in between feedings. So trust me when I say, I know arm pain! This pillow allowed me to rest, use my phone, grab my drink, etc. All without disturbing him at all.
