A Mom Invented Nursing Pillow That Actually Grows With Your Child -- My Feeding Friend (Review and Giveaway)

My Feeding Friend 

Slide 1

With this review, I am going to let the photos speak for themselves (scroll to the bottom to see Arabella and Savannah with their new grow-with-me pillow).  I was recently sent a new product, My Feeding Friend! to review with my youngest daughter, Arabella.  Though she is no longer breastfeeding, but drinking from the bottle, she took to her new feeding pillow instantly.  When she wasn't propped up against it to feed, she would cuddle and crawl all over it.  And, when she wasn't using this cute and huggable pillow, Savannah (who is 2 yrs. old now) got in on the fun and cozied up next to the tiger pillow.

As a mom entrepreneur and supporter of other mom entrepreneurs, I love how this product was created by a mom, who like the rest of us had an idea after seeing a need for a functional nursing pillow.  Julie Kollar-Menconi hated that the current products on the market had a short life span and lacked the ability to be more than just a nursing below. She created this pillow, which will last a child through the years.  Just look at what the My Feeding Friend Pillow can offer during the different grow-with-me stages of your child's development:

Stage 1:

Acts as a cozy, cute and intimate nursing pillow.

Stage 2:

Becomes a cuddly tummy time friend

Stage 3:

Supportive and soft for infants learning how to sit up

Stage 4:

A bedtime buddy that provides the comfort and support every child seeks and every mother needs.

This mother of four really did her research and created a must-have product for all moms (expectant, new, etc.).  I wish I knew about this breastfeeding support pillow when I was breastfeeding the girls, as I would have loved to have how well it worked.  Other nursing pillows I bought and used were so uncomfortable for both the girls and I.  This was really comfy cozy. :-)  And, I love that it has multiple uses, so that I can save money on buying other products that don't really work, or only last a short time.  Brilliant idea, Julie!!
