Gives adequate back support while on a couch, rocking chair, or sitting up in bed Adjustable velcro and buckle makes it a good fit for many sized moms I thought I had made a mistake by ordering this but after a week of using it with my newborn I am in love.
This fits nice around your waist, you can quietly unhook it when baby falls asleep, its comfy, supportive, has a pocket to stash nipple cream, nipple shields and spit up cloths, and I still use it and my baby is now almost 9 months old.
I did find a very helpful sized pillow called the Prop 'em Up nursing assist pillow that worked excellent in combination with the Brest Friend as an extra infant head support which made breastfeeding so much more easier and comfortable and was perfectly sized for me and when my baby was a newborn!
However, I did not like the stiff backing (you clip it around your waist) as I can't lean back and breastfeed which resulted in some back pains as I had to breastfeed my newborn with a straight back.
It's horrible as all of my baby's receiving blankets get stuck to it while feeding and ruined as well as anything I have to wash with it.
My infant reflexes so lying flat on the pillow when feeding is not helpful, good for keeping back straight though However, for me the item doesn't fit comfortably.
Discover why My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow is the #1 breastfeeding support pillow with professional Lactation Consultants. It is the only pillow that stays securely in place and does not shift or slide like crescent shaped nursing pillows. The wrap-around design secures the pillow to the body, helping mom and baby maintain ideal positioning for latch-on while preventing back and neck pain. The arm and elbow rests eliminate shoulder stress and there is even a convenient pocket for nursing supplies and other accessories. The firm, flat-front cushion and adjustable, silent-release strap eliminate any gap between you and your baby. This keeps your baby from rolling in or away during breastfeeding. The deluxe model includes all of the great features in the original model plus a Velcro strap. The Velcro strap makes it easy to attach or adjust the pillow with one hand. If your baby falls asleep while you are nursing, you still have the quiet clip to unlatch the pillow when you are done nursing. The deluxe model also comes in baby soft, plush fabric. Purchase includes pillow insert and one slipcover. Extra slipcovers are available from Amazon in many colors and designs.
