I wanted to share with you my positive experience using the My Brest Friend Deluxe pillow. I have degenerative disc disease with multiple herniated discs in my back and have had a spinal fusion. As a result, breast feeding was proving to be extremely painful for me; and was difficult for both me and my little one. However, I was determined to succeed; and I must give some credit to my nursing pillow. Pain could have continued to be unbearable; which would have ultimately lead to increased stress and frustration, and we all know how detrimental those factors can be to a nursing mother’s milk supply. I am glad I decided to give your product a try. It has met my needs and even exceeded my expectations by your company’s warranty protection and exceptionally courteous customer support! Thank you again!

My Brest Friend was the best for me & my son. We love it! Definitely a top three, “must have” baby product.

I love the Brest Friend. It was a lifesaver when it came to breastfeeding. I had one at home and one on set when I was working, and I never traveled without it. It’s the best; nothing else even comes close.

A great friend when you are a very busy mommy.

This is a great product. I had the Boppy first but it was uncomfortable because I would have to arch my back to get my baby comfortable, the Boppy was to flimsy. The Brest friend was referred to me and it helped me position my baby better and helped my lower back. My baby loves it he easily falls asleep on it too. I would recommend this to anyone
- Mary, mom of Asa
I originally got a Boppy because it seems everyone had them, but then at a breastfeeding class they said this was much better. Man were they right! The Boppy is too soft and the kid just sinks in, not enough support. This is firm foam that holds him up at the right height. It has a little bump to rest his head on also so your hand does not get tired and the removable cover is nice too. This product truly saved my breastfeeding, it was hard for so many other reasons and this made it so much easier. I cannot recommend this enough!
- June, mom of Jake
I bought this when I was pregnant with my first daughter, and after a c-section, it was great! The back support helps hold the pillow up high off of your incision. I used this every time I nursed my daughter, and we use it now with our second baby. It is great for keeping the baby in the right position, especially in those first few weeks when you feel like you do not know what you are doing. It is definitely worth it! I am buying one now for a baby shower gift for a friend.

I love the My Brest Friend Twins Plus nursing pillow! Our twins, Elliot and Elijah are three months old now and I have been able to exclusively breast feed them thanks to this wonderful pillow. The My Brest Friend Twins Plus nursing pillow allowed me to be able to latch both babies by myself. The MBF nursing pillow encourages me to sit more upright and offers the back support that I never had with other products. The Twins Plus pillow has offered the three of us a bonding experience that is so special to me. I cannot thank your company enough for making such a valuable and affordable tool.
- Christina, mother of Eli and Elliott
The Brest Friend pillow was one of many items that I would classify as a must have for new mothers. We were given some of the others, but they did not feel as comfortable and believe me, when my wife was comfortable, my life was comfortable. Not a complicated product, but well designed and really useful, even for me. I am not afraid to say that it made its way around my waist a couple of times, and feeding was really calm and peaceful. Anyway, I would put it on my top five list for getting a new mother.
- Greg, dad of Lilly
My Brest Friend helped to position my premature son correctly while my wife was breastfeeding AND I while I was bottle feeding (Yes, I swallowed my manly pride and used the pillow too … it made those early feedings go much smoother).
- James, dad of Kaleb
This pillow is fantastic. Not only does it provide support for the weight of a baby while breastfeeding, it also puts baby in the perfect position for an easy, painless latch! And, since we only use the pillow for breastfeeding, as soon as the baby feels the pillow beneath her, she knows exactly what to do and stops fussing immediately. Also, the nice wide strap across the back makes it sit securely, and keeps me from slouching – which makes my back hurt less from feeding!
- Beth, mom of Morgan
No comparison! I started with a Boppy, which is just a U shaped pillow, if that’s all you want use two bed pillows and save yourself the money. The My Brest Friend is actually a nursing pillow, and it will set you up for nursing success. It has built in back support, because you spend so many hours in that position, this is crucial. It is also firm enough and buckles on to put the baby at just the right position to alleviate sore nipples. Well worth it, and the plush covered deluxe is a nice splurge.
- Annie, mom of Adam
As a Registered Nurse and an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant with over 20 years of experience, I’m very careful about which products I recommend to my clients. The My Brest Friend pillow is superior at supporting the baby and the mom for optimal positioning while breastfeeding. It helps to relax the mom’s hands, back, and neck because of the support it provides, while also allowing the baby to be at just the right height for breastfeeding. Helping a mom relax will allow her to truly enjoy her breastfeeding experience. The My Brest Friend pillow is the only breastfeeding pillow I recommend to my clients.

It takes only one time of use to know the quality of the design over the other pillows out there. I can’t tell you how many pillows we sell to moms who started with the Boppy and then used our My Brest Friend in our mothers’ room and consult rooms. It sells itself!
- M. Lawson, BA, Ed, CBE, Special Addition, Austin, TX
Our group of Lactation Consultants recommends MBF because it is the nursing pillow that does not need additional support; Boppy needs other pillows to fill the gap created when it slips away from the body.
- A. Stekas, RNC, MSN, IBCLC 10 years, NYU Medical Center
I have to say that this is the best breastfeeding pillow EVER! I teach baby-wearing classes and am a birth doula and always suggest this pillow to my students and clients! I always bring my pillow to the birth so that they can use it to help get breastfeeding established. So thank you thank you thank you for making an awesome product!

Marin General Hospital excusively uses My Brest Friend in all of our postpartum rooms. They are recommended by our Lactation Consultants as the best nursing pillow on the market for breastfeeding success. It is a ‘must have’ item for all breast feeding moms.

It is important for babies with reflux to eat with a straight spine on at least a 30 degree angle which is easily attainable with the My Brest Friend Reflux Feeding Pillow. This pillow places a baby at an optimal angle for feeding while taking into consideration the many variations of mom’s anatomy.
