My Brest Friend Breastfeeding Pillow

The My Brest Friend is a contoured nursing support pillow. But you wouldn’t get that from the name. Yes, it’s My BREST Friend. B-R-E-S-T. That’s not a typo. The A in breast is missing. The name is a portmanteau of Best and Breast, two words that you often find combined. It’s a punny name but that seems to be normal in the baby breastfeeding product world.

Another product we own is called the Hooter Hider. It’s essentially a curtain to prevent strangers from seeing the goods as my wife breastfeeds. While its name is also punny it’s at least understandable. The Hooter Hider hides your hooters.

My Brest Friend? It could be the title of a travelogue detailing the coming-of-age story of two young strangers who meet while backpacking through Europe. Instead it’s the name of a plush pillow for suckling newborns. Brest is a city in France and a city in Belarus, fyi.

If they were ever to consider renaming this breastfeeding support pillow here are a few of my suggestions:

The Nipplillow

The Baby Breast Rest

Funbag Feed Cushion

The Suckle Supporter.

The Tit for Tot.

Thankfully, it’s not just a breastfeeding support pillow. After a suggestion from a friend we used it as a sitting aid for our daughter before she sat without support. It worked well and she sat comfortably in the middle of the Nipplillow. And getting some multitasking out of baby gear is always great. Uni-taskers suck. Take that Bumpo chair.

It’s difficult to fully review a product that’s really not designed for you. It’s my wife’s pillow and she uses it daily. I’ve tried to use it on occasion. Not for breastfeeding. It’s not really a breast feeding pillow when your breasts can’t do any feeding. It works well as a nice lap extension. A heaping plate of nachos fits well on the pillow and the handy pocket fits a few beers. Or you can go hands-free with a laptop on the pillow. Nothing says you’re an involved Dad like relaxing with a few beers and some internet surfing on your wife’s breastfeeding pillow.

    I like the dress but know you would seem fab in both! I cannot believe every thing in the store will probably be 1/2 off! WOW, wish I lived closer because I really like The Limited.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
