From Bump To Baby: My Brest Friend {Review}

Disclosure Review

My Brest Friend 2

A couple of years ago, a friend of mine was pregnant. She began telling me all about how uncomfortable it is to sleep while being in her third trimester. She said that her husband was an absolute saint because he purchased her a special pillow that she could put under her belly at night. She said it was absolutely fantastic and she couldn’t imagine pregnant life without it.

Although {at the time} I did not fully understand how pregnancy could possibly be THAT uncomfortable… the conversation stuck with me. When I found out that I was pregnant, I was determined to get a really neat pillow – just like my friend had – so that I could have a more restful sleep when pregnancy started to get super uncomfortable. I found exactly what I was looking for at a company called My Brest Friend.

About the Pregnancy Wedge {as taken from the My Brest Friend Website}

The My Brest Friend Pregnancy Wedge can be placed behind your lower back for lumbar support, under your belly for sleeping support or between your legs for better hip, leg and back alignment. It is a versatile support cushion for back and belly during or after pregnancy.

  • Maximum support for your belly’s ideal comfort
  • Wedge can also be used as a back support
  • Natural core shape for easy sleeping
  • Easy to take with you on-the-go
  • Extra soft 100% cotton slipcover
  • Zip-off cover is machine washable

As I said earlier, at the beginning of my pregnancy I did not completely understand why these types of pillows are necessary in order to get a good night’s sleep. I began using this pillow at the beginning of my second trimester. However – sleeping was still relatively easy {with the exception of the multiple bathroom trips in the middle of the night}. Many nights in the very early stages of the second trimester, I would end up losing the pillow and sleeping on my back. You see, although my belly was growing each and every day — I could still easily sleep on my back and toss and turn without being uncozy.

As the second trimester of my pregnancy continued to progress, finding a cozy sleeping position started getting harder and harder. I found the Pregnancy Wedge to begin making a positive difference in my sleep.

The moment that the third trimester came along, I noticed a huge difference in my body and sleep patterns. I began to understand exactly what my friend was talking about in the conversation that we had nearly two years prior. Laying down made it hard to breathe and my belly was too heavy to find a comfortable position.

Now that I am well in to my third trimester {only 7 weeks left!!}, I can not imagine trying to sleep without the Pregnancy Wedge from My Brest Friend. It has been a life saver for my entire family. I am a happier wife and mommy-to-be because I get enough sleep each night. My husband is a happier husband because I am not grumpy.

About the Deluxe Pillow (As taken from the My Brest Friend website):

My Brest Friend was developed in a laboratory of new moms, babies, and breastfeeding experts who set out to create a pillow whose sole purpose was to answer all the needs of breastfeeding moms and babies. 50 prototypes and a global patent later, the pillow is loaded with features moms love:

  • Back rest helps you maintain good posture during feeding and prevents sore back and neck
  • 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

All the benefits of our original pillow, plus:

  • Extra soft baby-plush fabric
  • Double-featured strap with Velcro and silent-release buckle for easy, one-hand use
  • Slipcover stays fresh through dozens of washes

I have not had the opportunity to try this product out yet (only because my daughter is not here yet). However – because of the extreme success I have had with the Pregnancy Wedge, I am positive that this product will amaze me as well. I look forward to giving this product a try in a mere 7 weeks {give or take a few weeks}.

If you are pregnant or breast-feeding – you NEED to check out the products at My Brest Friend. I could not function without my Pregnancy Wedge – and I am sure I will be saying the exact same thing about the Deluxe Pillow!
