My Brest Friend - Deluxe Nursing Pillow Green (27"x22"x6")
Breastfeeding two babies can seem like something that is both wonderful and daunting, yet armed with some helpful tips and tools like the My Brest Friend Twins Plus feeding pillow, you will soon find yourself feeding two babies simultaneously like a pro.
There are many reasons to consider breastfeeding your twins simultaneously including:
Breastfeeding two babies at a time is usually faster than breastfeeding one baby after the other. Time saving strategies are crucial when feeding two babies the typical 8-12 times a day.
Research has demonstrated that mothers of twins who breastfeed simultaneously, have a higher prolactin level. Prolactin is the key hormone responsible for signaling milk production.
It can also be difficult to bottle feed two babies at a time but with the help of the My Brest Friend Twins Plus Feeding pillow, both babies can receive your attention at once.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between your regular and deluxe pillow?
Both models have all the same supportive, patented My Brest Friend features. The deluxe model offers baby-plush soft fabric and a double-featured strap that combines Velcro for easy-on and the silent-release buckle for a quiet removal that won’t wake a sleeping baby.
Will your new slipcovers fit my old My Brest Friend pillow? Yes!
Where can I buy slipcovers? You can buy them on their site. Go to the Products page and click on Slipcovers.
What fabrics are used to make My Best Friend pillows? The pillow is made of a recyclable foam, covered by a removable, 100% cotton for the original, 100% polyester for the deluxe, machine-washable cover.
What should I do with my pillow when I am done breastfeeding? Because of the personal nature of this product, they recommend not passing it along to other mothers. You can place your My Brest Friend pillow with your other recyclables. Some moms use My Brest Friend as a support for their own activities like sewing, etc., and some use it as a play pillow for their baby learning to sit up.
Can I use My Brest Friend to nurse twins? Yes! Many mothers use My Brest Friend to nurse twins. As long as the babies are small enough to fit onto the pillow, this should work well for all three of you. You can also use their My Brest Friend Twins plus Pillow.
What are the two bumps on one side of the pillow surface? These are called feeding risers and they raise the baby’s head just a bit, aiding ingestion and digestion. They incorporated this feature into their design based upon the recommendations of lactation consultants.
I just gave birth and My Brest Friend doesn’t seem to fit – why? Within the first week of giving birth, a woman’s uterus continues to be enlarged. As your uterus begins to shrink over the course of the first week postpartum, the pillow should begin to fit more comfortably.
What sizes does the pillow fit? My Brest Friend fits up to a 44-inch waist, making it a good choice for breastfeeding moms and even many bottle-feeding Dads.
What is the weight limit for my baby with My Brest Friend? The pillow supports babies up to 18 months and about 20 pounds. More importantly is that you and your baby are comfortable.
Wrap the pillow around your body with the zippered side facing down. Adjust lumbar cushion to the location and thickness that feels most comfortable for your back. Let the pillow rest naturally on your lap.
Hold the baby so that he/she is facing you. Support the baby’s head, neck and shoulders with your hand, placing your thumb behind and below one ear, your index finger behind and below the other.
Using the hand behind your baby’s head, tip his/her head back slightly so that the chin is closer to the breast you are offering than the nose is.
Support the breast with your hand. Your thumb should be about an inch or two behind the nipple, and your index finger should be directly across from your thumb and index finger together slightly, compressing the breast right in front of the baby’s nose and just below the chin. This will shape the breast to match your baby’s mouth.
Continuing to compress the breast with your thumb and index finger, align the baby’s nose with your nipple and touch the baby’s upper lip with the nipple. When the baby opens his/her mouth very wide, quickly pull the baby onto the breast, chin first. The baby should take more of the tissue below the nipple than above. Keep your fingers in place compressing the breast, until the baby is actively sucking.
About The Pillow
Safety The pillow was invented 16 years ago and they have helped millions of moms breastfeed their babies in more than 30 countries around the world. In 16years, they have never had any issue with safety or health with the use of their pillows. They stopped using fire retardants with their foam some years ago. They test all of their foam and products using Intertek laboratories, considered to be one of the leading independent testing laboratories in the world. All of their tests have passed the legal and strictest safety regulations. They continue to test all residuals for safety, and the results show that they are either nonexistent or at a level that is considered to be “non-detectable” by the laboratory, and therefore considered safest. Members of my family and the My Brest Friend staff would not use their products, nor would they sell the My Brest Friend if they did not believe them to be totally safe, regardless of the legal compliance. – Andrew Zenoff, CEO and Inventor of the My Brest Friend

Zenoff Products History Imagine the year is 1994 and you have a new baby. Together, you and your newborn will clock over 1,000 hours together at the breast. You look around for something to help you and your baby get positioned comfortably for this special time of togetherness, but find very limited options. You try a:
a bed pillow
a large teddy bear
a rolled-up towel
a sofa cushion
Amazing as it seems, these were the choices available to new moms just 16 years ago. None of these choices stayed in place, and when Moms moved, babies often lost their feeding latch. So mothers would try to stay frozen in place for the whole feeding, which left them sore and uncomfortable.
They know because that’s where they came in.
The first pillow specifically designed for breastfeeding 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. Spearheading the effort 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.
First, Andrew and his team compiled a list of every complaint breastfeeding moms could think of with the existing pillows. 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, did they introduce My Brest Friend to mothers everywhere.
16 years later: the pillow loved around the world Today My Brest Friend’s patented wrap-around design has made fans in over 30 countries where it is sold, as well as being used in hundreds of NIC units and birthing hospitals. It is the #1 choice of lactation consultants and consistently earns raves among nursing mothers, many of whom tell them their pillow has helped them achieve longer holding and feeding cycles with their babies. My Brest Friend has helped millions of moms breastfeed their babies. Their stylish new prints and fabrics make My Brest Friend the perfect item to register for or give as a gift.
Step one: Position My Brest Friend at your waist with the clasp on your right side and the backrest behind you.
Step two: After placing pillow at optimal breastfeeding height, close the clasp or fasten the Velcro to secure My Brest Friend to your body
Step three: Adjust the strap or Velcro so that My Brest Friend fits snugly to your body. Pick up baby and sit down, resting baby’s head directly on the pillow and helping baby latch on. When baby is done feeding, squeeze the buckle and silently release the clasp.
How to breastfeed twins at the same time Many women, especially first time mothers, find it helpful to learn how to breastfeed one baby at a time until they feel comfortable with how to latch the babies well. This may take a few days or a week but once you feel skilled at bringing one baby to the breast, you are ready to try tandem feeding.
There are many possible positions for simultaneous twin breastfeeding but here are the most popular three positions:
Double football/clutch This is the most popular position, especially for small and young babies. Both babies are at your sides with their legs under your arms and their heads supported by your hands.
Double cradle with overlapping legs Position the first baby in a cradle hold, with his head in the crook of your elbow. Bring the second baby up to your other breast, cradling him in the crook of your other elbow. Cross their legs over each other so they both rest comfortably on the pillow.
Combination of football and cradle hold Some women find feeding one baby in the football hold and the other in cradle helpful, especially if one baby prefers one position or the other. Position the baby in football hold first, and then bring the second baby up in a cradle hold.
Which baby goes on first? Most moms find it easiest to latch the baby that needs the most help first. This strategy allows you to use both hands to help the less vigorous nurser latch deeply. Once latched, the twin pillow will support the first baby so you can reach over, pick up, and latch the second baby onto the second breast.
Which baby feeds on which breast? Most experts recommend alternating each baby on each breast every other feed or at least every other day. Alternating breasts encourages equal stimulation of milk production, especially if you have one baby who is a more vigorous nurser than the other.
How long should the twins feed? What about burping? Most twins nurse anywhere from 20-45 minutes for each feed. Depending on their weight and age, the feeding may be shorter or longer. It is usually helpful to take each baby off halfway through the feeding and sit them up on the pillow to burp. Once burped, return him to the same breast he was on and burp his sibling.
