My Brest friend nursing pillow FertileMyrtle5 Due November 13 (boy); 3 kids; Indiana 302 posts

I am expecting twins in November and was told to look into the twin version of the my Brest friend nursing pillow. Does anyone use this nursing pillow? Either the singleton version or twin version? Is it worth buying in your opinion?

Reviews:
1)I just could not use this. I tried desperately. My twins had a difficult time nursing anyway, and with this pillow I could not get the second baby positioned without the first nearly falling off. I'm a small person and it just felt cumbersome.




Just use pillows or a boppy.




BOTTOM LINE No, I would not recommend this to a friend




2)This pillow is worth every penny. I recently had twins and had researched this pillow before they were born and decided I didn't actually need it. Ha. After about a week and a half trying to get two babies latched on at the same time while struggling to place two Boppies and various pillows and what-not, I broke down and ordered it.



The pillow itself is quite large, but great quality; it's firm with a soft, machine washable cover and adjustable straps. It is SO EASY to tandem nurse my twins with this pillow. I literally would not be able to successfully breastfeed without it. Highly recommended for twin moms!




BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend



3)We bought the twin pillow very early on to facilitate dual feeding and let me tell you this has gotten it's money use ten fold. Not only did mommy use it to dual feed, but I was able to use it also to give them bottles when mommy needed a break. This is by far the one thing that every twin parents MUST have, every little bit of time you can save makes a huge difference and this did the job every feeding. Our girls are 14 months now and we still use it sometimes for the nighttime bottles and with all that use it still looks brand new.




BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend



4)Easy to use and pretty easy to clean. The "platform" makes it easy to burp one baby while the other is nursing. A little tricky early on when they're not latching so well but after a while it can be used solo. For now (the twins are 2 weeks old) I only use it when I have someone nearby to help.




BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend




5)I was frustrated being a first time mom trying to breast feed. The boppy pillow didnt support my baby enough I had to wedge other pillows under his head. I didnt buy the brest friend at first because the boppy was cheaper. But after the first month of having to use several pillows and the boppy I thought I would try it out and I loved it. I could get him in the right position every time. My husband even used it to hold him as well. If you plan on breast feeding this pillow is a must!!! I might have quit if it wasnt for this pillow! Now that my son is 7 months old I no longer use it because he is so big I dont need a pillow. :)




BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend




6)It it comfortable for you and the babies< Very Soft< saves your back< frees up your hands and it kind of feels like you are having a little break from holding them. The babies are relaxed and will even stare and smile at each other. A must buy and worth every penny!!
