The absolute best for breastfeeding

Just like most people, when I was completing my register at Babies R Us, I registered for a Boppy Pillow. It’s beautiful, with a fluffy cover and a ladybug design. When I went into labor, I brought the Boppy with me to the Birth Center and was super happy to have it…that is until I actually tried to use it. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out how to position the pillow or my newborn little girl on the pillow in any way that was comfortable or worked.

Once I was home, I still struggled with the thing. Breastfeeding, in itself, is an art form and requires patience and diligence to get the hang of it. A few days after getting home, I was so frustrated with painful nipples and throbbing breasts that I brought in a lactation consultant. Mama’s Latte came to the house and Sybill showed me a much better option.

The Brest Friend Breastfeeding Pillow. This thing is a miracle worker. It’s easy to position, super comfortable and Trinity lays on the pillow in a way that makes sense. It’s so easy for her to latch on properly while I maintain good posture. Plus, the pillow really supports her which takes a good amount of strain off my back.

This should be recommended for every new mom as it’s the absolute best!
