Be Your Own Advocate

Being pregnant is hard. It’s just hard. 

Through a year of IVF, a loss, and now, 35.5 weeks pregnant I have one big piece of advice. I won’t tell you what to eat or how to live. I will tell you, however, and I cannot stress this enough:

Be your own advocate.

My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow/Products Review & $150 Giveaway (CLOSED 1/10)

My Brest Friend 1 package

My Brest Friend has tons of fabulous products, but they are probably most well known for their original nursing pillow. If you have ever watched a certain TLC show about a mega-sized family, you have probably seen one! 🙂 (Do note that My Brest Friend does not recommend using the pillow while walking around like you will see on this show!) Anyhoo, My Brest Friend sent me a ton of fabulous products to try, and you have the chance to win some too.

3-in-1-body 3-in-1-body-2

The 3-in-1 body pillow ($55.95 retail) is a streamlined pregnancy body pillow designed to provide maximum support without hogging all the bed space!

My Brest Friend 2 body pillow My Brest Friend 3 length

It has a built in wedge for your belly and a comfy spot to rest your head.

It also has a removable cover so you can keep the pillow clean!

My Brest Friend 6 cover

The pillow will help keep your head, belly and knees/hips supported and keep you comfy all night!

pregnancy-wedge My Brest Friend 7 pregnancy wedge

If you don’t want the whole body pillow, consider the pregnancy wedge instead!

My Brest Friend 8 side My Brest Friend 9 cover

The pregnancy wedge can be used behind your lower back for lumbar support, or at bedtime under your belly for or between your legs for better hip, leg and back alignment at night. The 100% cotton cover zips off for easy cleaning. The wedge retails for $15.95.

mixed-burp-cloths My Brest Friend 10 burp cloths

The extra large burp cloths sell for $19.95/3 pack, and are available in pink, blue and mixed colors.

My Brest Friend 11 size My Brest Friend 12 much larger than others

They are super absorbent, 100% cotton and are far larger than the leading burp cloths!


The original nursing pillow is perfect for pretending you are swimming, tee-hee!

My Brest Friend 28 original My Brest Friend 29 open

The pillow is available in loads of different slipcover colors/patterns, and retails for $44. The pillow is firm and flat, and adjust to fit any mom or Dad. The “big name” u-shaped nursing pillow doesn’t work for me because the ends hit the couch back and leave a huge gap between by belly and the pillow. That, combined with the squishy, lumpi-ness of the pillow leads to the baby rolling into the gap! Not so with the My Brest Friend. My husband and even my 6 1/2 year old daughter can use it.

My Brest Friend 30 pocket My Brest Friend 31 removable cover

The wrap around design gives you back support and ensures the pillow supports you and baby without shifting. The buckle is a quiet release, and the pillow even has a pocket (for the remote, your phone, a bottle of water etc.) and removable cover!

Even at 9 months pregnant, I was able to get the pillow to fit with plenty of room!

My Brest Friend 35 cream My Brest Friend 36 cream pjg

My Brest Friend’s All Natural Nipple Cream is a brand new product made with all natural and organic ingredients, with no preservatives or additives!

It is lanolin free, non-greasy, and doesn’t need to be removed prior to feeding.

The MSRP of a tube of the nipple cream is $14.95.

The above products are what is up for grabs in the giveaway! My Brest Friend is SO AWESOME, that they sent me a Twins Plus Pillow for my BFF, who is expecting twins in May (baby #3 was a surprise which turned out to be double the surprise. 😉 ) I asked on my Facebook page what twin moms suggested I could do/get for her, and the My Brest Friend twins plus pillow was mentioned more than once. I chatted with MBF about it and they sent one for her! She was really excited since she didn’t know how the “other pillow” could possibly work with twins. You will see a real review in June-ish (whenever she gets the time!) but I played with it myself so I could show you a bit about it now!

Twin-mom-2 features_and_benefits

I just want to say that this pillow is super awesome, whether or not you have twins. Don’t let the name make you think it’s not for you. Though it’s a little pricey at $78, and only available in 2 colors, it is really nice, and I honestly don’t think it would be overkill for a singleton if you want maximum support & comfort!

The Twins Pillow has a lot of the same features as the original like the quiet buckle and storage pocket.

It also has customizable back support.

You can also adjust both sides of the Twins Plus Pillow.

I was amazed by how darn comfy it was. I was able to “nurse twins” and still have support for my arms!

There’s simply no contest between the Twins Plus and “the other pillow.”

This is absolutely the best pillow for twins!!
