MyBrestFriend Review/Giveaway ----CLOSED


One of the things that I quickly learned from breastfeeding Maddox is the necessity of a good nursing pillow. And especially in the beginning. With Maddox I used another name brand nursing pillow but after trying out a My Brest Friend Original Nursing pillow at the lactation specialist I knew that there was something better.

In the beginning Maddox only liked to nurse on one side & would become extremely upset if I tried to switch him. Well, anyone that has ever breastfed knows that you MUST feed on both sides. So, in order for him to nurse on both sides I would have to pivot the actual pillow with him on top of it. We would start on the side "he liked" then I would twist the pillow around. And let me just say the Brest Friend pillow was much easier than the pillow I had. So, I knew this time around a My Brest Friend Original Nursing Pillow was a must.
  
With Maddox I went with the other nursing pillow because it seemed less bulky & I had heard so many great things...well let me just say
I should have known being they're the #1 Choice of lactation consultants...and being a Mother/Baby nurse...



however after my past experience I now know.


  
So you can only imagine my excitement when
My Brest Friend so generously sent me:

  • An Original Nursing Pillow in their new bluebells print
  • A Nursing Cover in the mod pod print 
  • An adjustable nursing stool
  • 1 Bottle of each of their vitamins (Breastfeeding Essentials Vitamin, Fenugreek, & Omega-3 Lemon Fish Oil)


 Not only can I attest to how wonderful their Nursing Pillow but it has all the features that are necessary & very helpful to a nursing mother:


•Wrap around 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 (another feature that makes this pillow THE BEST NURSING PILLOW)

•Firm, flat cushion keeps baby from rolling

•Adjustable, silent-release strap fits Moms or Dads comfortably and unlatches without waking baby
•Arm and elbow rests eliminate shoulder stress

•Convenient pocket keeps water bottles, burp cloths, phone, and other items within reach

As crazy as it sounds, I can't wait to try it out with Emma.


Another MUST HAVE that I quickly learned about with Maddox was a nursing cover. I always felt like I was missing out by escaping into his room to nurse. And one of the great things about the Brest Friend nursing cover is the private easy view design. It is supported at the top, so it's not "just a piece of cloth". You're able to easily view your baby all while staying covered. And not to mention the great size of their cover. It is honestly the BEST COVER I have seen, I will have no problem nursing with it.




Even though I had a wonderful glider & ottoman with Maddox I always wished I had a nursing stool. My back & neck would ache so bad...which is why a lot of time I found myself on the couch nursing. I love the fact that the Brest Friend nursing stool is adjustable to different angles which allows for the optimum nursing support. Even though I haven't had the chance to actually try it out while nursing I know that it will make the world of difference with the back & neck pain I experienced with Maddox.




Plus it can easily be used as a step stool when you no longer need it for nursing...another plus in my book.

As a nurse I know the importance of having the proper nutrients & I know that it is ESSENTIAL for breastfeeding. Not only is it important for you but for your baby as well.




My Brest Friend offers the perfect selection to promote healthy breastfeeding...



Breastfeeding Essentials contains 28 essential vitamins, minerals & herbs---all which are necessary to help the mother maintain overall good health. Plus it offers:
•Over 100% daily value of vitamin B6, B12, C, D3,E, riboflavin, thiamine, and pantothenic acid to help you meet the increased nutrient demands of lactation, enhance energy, maintain antioxidant defenses, and support overall well-being.


Fenugreek is the most popular herbal remedy to help increase milk production. My goal with Maddox was to breastfeed for 1 year however I didn't make it due to supply. I only wish I would have had this then... An increase in milk supply is generally noticed within 1-3 days after supplementation. Hopefully, I will be able to make it to the 1 Year mark with Emma thanks to Fenugreek.


Omega-3 Lemon Fish Oil which is loaded with DHA & Omega-3 fatty acids helps to support heart, lung, joint, skin, brain & nerve functions. All which are extremely crucial for the development of your infant.


My Brest Friend certainly knows breastfeeding & how to support it!



My Brest Friend has so graciously offered to give 1 lucky follower the very same pack I received:

  • Original Nursing Pillow
  • Nursing Cover
  • An adjustable nursing stool
  • 1 bottle of each of their vitamins (Breastfeeding Essentials, Fenugreek & Omega-3 Lemon Fish Oil)
