MyBrest Friend Review & Giveaway ***CLOSED***


How many of you moms have a hard time when you first begin breastfeeding with
getting the baby positioned just right? I know this is something I have struggled with
while breastfeeding my last two children. I did not nurse Bubba at all and now regret it.
I was only able to nurse Pumpkin for about 3 months and then dried up super quick due
to working. Since I am able to stay home with Pumpkin and Sweet Pea now I am going
on 4 months of nursing Sweet Pea and loving it. When I had pumpkin I had a very hard time with getting him positioned just right to nurse. I was fearing the same problem
when I had Sweet Pea. I was so thankful to found MyBrest Friend. It has been so
helpful with the success of my breastfeeding Sweet Pea.


My Brest Friend was developed in a “laboratory” of new moms, babies, and
breastfeeding experts who set out to do what no one had done before: create a pillow whose sole purpose was to answer all the needs of breastfeeding moms and babies. Leading this cause was inventor Andrew Zenoff, a bachelor who proved that sometimes the best ideas come from those who have just enough distance from a
problem to imagine solutions that have never been considered before.

To begin Andrew and his team compiled a list of every complaint breastfeeding moms
could think of with the existing pillows that were on the market. The list ranged from
lower back pain due to improper support, to poor latch-on, to babies “rolling” inward or away during the feeding due to using U-shaped pillows. This began a lengthy cycle of design and test, followed by redesign and retest until they had built over 50 prototypes
in a single year. They poked, prodded, raised, lowered, tightened, loosened, shifted and adorned until, at last, they had a pillow that their mom testers loved so much, they couldn’t find a single way to improve upon it. Then, and only then, is when they
introduce My Brest Friend to mothers everywhere.


I was super excited when I got the chance to do a review of MyBrest Friend. Not only
did I get a pillow to review but also a nursing cover and vitamins. The vitamins I
received are Breastfeeding Essentials, Fenugreek and Omega- 3 Lemon Fish Oil. The
pillow and nursing cover are very well made and come in a variety of patterns. The
pillow is very comfortable use. I have Pars defect so not having to try to say in one position the whole feeding time helps my back a lot. The nursing cover is very large
so it makes it easy to still Sweet Pea while nursing so she doesn't feel like she is
trapped under a blanket. (which she hates she always would pull the blanket off of herself) I will definitely be holding onto my MyBrest Friend for awhile since we know we want more children! :-)


Breastfeeding Essentials - which contains 29 essential vitamins, minerals, and herbs
to help breastfeeding mothers maintain overall good health.  Breastfeeding Essentials provides the added dietary intake of critically important, optimum nutrients and health
for both the nursing mother and her baby.

  • Contains the highest quality folate and chelated minerals available to ensure the greatest absorption of nutrients.
  • 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 - The most popular herbal remedy that has been used by millions of women
around the world for increasing milk production.
  • Research suggests that diosgenin, a natural compound found in the Fenugreek seed, may
  • be responsible for stimulating milk production by up to 40%.
  • An increase in milk supply is generally noticed with 1 to 3 days after supplementation.
Omega- 3 Lemon Fish Oil - Loaded with DHA and Omega-3 fatty acids which supports heart, lung, joint, skin, brain and nerve functions.  They are especially crucial for development of
proper neurological and visual functions in infants.
  • Potent 50% EPA/DHA content: the concentrated amount of Omega-3 fatty acids is well above the EPA/DHA found in other brands.
  • Molecular distillation and advanced filtration processes remove heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cholesterol, PCB’s, pesticides and other impurities often found in fish.

How would you like to own a MyBrest Friend Pillow? Well heres your chance the wonderful
people at MyBrest Friend has offered one of my followers a MyBrest Friend!! How awesome is that...
