New Mommy: My Brest Friend

When I got pregnant with Sophia, I wondered what all the fuss was about with breastfeeding.  I naively assumed that it would be easy… it’s natural, right?  I didn’t take a breastfeeding class, I didn’t buy any types of pillows/support to help with breastfeeding, and I, at only the last minute, bought a generic cream to help with nipple tenderness.  I just wasn’t prepared at all.

Luckily, this time around, I did a bit more research and connected with some great companies, like My Brest Friend, that have helped m
e in our breastfeeding journey!  You may remember that I reviewed a couple of Maternity Pillows from My Brest Friend a few months ago {and I’m still using my 3-in-1 Body pillow… I don’t think I’ll ever give it up}!  This time around, I’m introducing you to three great products that are perfect for once your baby arrives!

First, let’s start with the My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow.  There are a couple of major brands on the market and I’m sure, if you’ve researched nursing pillows at all, you’ve seen this one.  I think what makes the My Brest Friend pillow stand out the most is the fact that it latches around you, so there is no sliding up or down.  I also love the support and firmness of this pillow.  The pocket on the side, well, that idea had to have came from a nursing mom!  What a genius little addition!

Not only can you get the pillow in the Original version, like I received, but they also sell and Organic, Twins, and Deluxe Version!  The only negative thing I can say about this pillow is the fact that when I washed it, the print faded a bit… this isn’t a deal breaker at all, just a bit of a bummer because it was so beautiful when it arrived!  I’ll also admit that I have to fight Sophia for the pillow when it’s time to nurse Moreaya.  She calls it her little chair!

I was also sent a tube of their new All Natural Nipple Cream.  Although I had other kinds of nipple cream that I planned to use, I tried this tube and really liked it.  I often switched back and forth between this and my other favorite.  This cream is totally different from any I’ve tried before.  When it comes out of the tube, it’s actually gritty… a bit like a sugary texture.  The instructions say to rub between your fingers to soften the cream, but I just put it straight on and it didn’t hurt at all.  The grittiness simply disappears and you’re left with a lovely product that really helps soothe sore, dry nipples.  My favorite part… it’s safe for Mom and Baby, so there’s no need to wash it off before you nurse.

Lastly, I got the opportunity to try out their Extra Large Burp Cloths.  These are the only cloths that I’ve used with Moreaya yet, because I can’t even imagine getting out the other tiny ones that I saved from Sophia.  They’re pretty… I love the color down the middle and on the trim.  They’re a terry cloth on one side and soft cloth on the other, giving you 2 options.  I definitely think these would make a great addition to any Baby Shower gift!
