My Boppy experience reminds me of that episode of Seinfeld when Elaine sees the English Patient. She hates the movie and can’t understand why everyone else loves it.
The Boppy Nursing Pillow was too plush. My daughter kept sinking. The pillow didn’t stay in place, which meant I had to keep adjusting. And I could only use it while sitting on the floor.
I went in search of another pillow for baby number two. A few online searches and conversations with other moms later, I discovered the My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow. I was both skeptical and intrigued.
I got the chance to try out the Deluxe My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow. Here’s my take:
What it’s made of.
The first thing I noticed about the My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow was that it is made of foam. This gave baby great support without sinking. Unlike other nursing pillows, there was no need to supplement with bed pillows.
Ease of use.
Life is challenging enough. I need my baby products to be simple.
Initially, the strap on the My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow made it look more complicated than the Boppy. However, the one handed adjustable strap actually makes life easier. The Velcro allows moms to adjust the pillow to fit securely around the waist.
Other features that matter.
The My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow has a convenient pocket to store nursing and other accessories. I find that it is great for burp cloths and even a small snack for mom.
The silent release buckle allows you to take the pillow off without disturbing a sleeping baby.
The back rest provides a lot of back and neck support without being cumbersome.
I don’t recommend the My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow as an aide to assist your child in sitting up. This is purely a nursing pillow, and the best on the market as far as I’m concerned.
I would recommend the My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow to my best friend along with any other breastfeeding mom.
