Feeding Friend - Self Inflating Nursing Pillow
A new baby means newly organizing your home and how you do just about everything.
Whether you decide to breast feed or bottle feed it will require a lot of organization several times daily. Do you have all that you may need handy? Do you have a tissue? A glass of water? The TV remote? Snacks? A book? Your phone? and a pillow?
The Feeding Friend is a self inflating nursing pillow that can help you rest your arm comfortably while feeding your baby.
The wedge shape of the pillow ensures that it can accommodate your growing baby and give angle options as your baby grows. After all, feeding a newborn requires a different technique and angles as does feeding a six month old!
Holding your arm at a comfortable angle and reducing stain on your body are important if strain across the shoulders, neck, back and hands is to be avoided.
Designed to be easily taken out and about, Feeding Friend is quick and easy to inflate and quick and easy to deflate.
To inflate, simply open the valve by turning it anti-clockwise and close it when the pillow reaches the desired firmness and size for optimum comfort. You choose how much air to allow the pillow to take in before you twist the valve shut. You can place a rug over it or smooth it out with your hand, if you wish.
Feeding Friend will support your arms so that you can relax and feed baby at the correct height for you without having to hold baby in an awkward position.
At the end of the feed, deflate Feeding Friend by re-opening the valve, turning it anti-clockwise, and begin rolling the pillow up.
Lightweight and compact it can fit under most prams and into nappy bags when not being used.
Feeding Friend can be used by multiple caregivers and is suitable for breast feeding and bottle feeding.
Feeding Friend allows baby to be fed with maximum comfort whether you are at home, at the café with friends or visiting. It provides comfort instantly and conveniently no matter where you go.
Feeding Friend has a removable zip off washable cover allowing maintenance of hygiene. The cover is easily removed and being made form 100% polyester, washes and dries quickly with little staining. Just ensure that your Feeding Friend is fully deflated before removing the cover.
The pillow itself is made from PVC and repeated use will soften the material and make inflation and deflation easier as time goes on.
Feeding Friend also comes with a handy drawstring travel and storage bag. Use the bag while your Feeding Friend is under the pram. This will help to protect it and stop it from inflating should you forget to twist the valve shut! The bag keeps Feeding Friend compact and the drawstring closure can be used to tie it to the pram or nappy bag.

How to Use:
- Open storage bag by loosening drawstring to remove deflated pillow
- Inflate pillow by turning valve in an anti-clockwise direction
- Pillow will start to inflate
- PLEASE NOTE: PVC has certain elasticity & softens with heat. When pillow is deflated/ rolled up, the PVC is creased. After initial inflation, the pillow must stand for a period of time so the PVC can soften, smooth and eliminate creases. If PVC has never been inflated before, it will need this time to expand and take shape. Feeding Friend will quickly inflate thereafter but only after the first initial inflation & deflation. This is due to the nature of PVC. Cold weather can also affect inflation times.
- If preferred, you can smooth the pillow with your hands whilst inflating to encourage pillow to take shape
- Once happy with the desired size of Feeding Friend, tighten the valve by turning it in a clockwise direction
- Relax and rest your arm in a comfortable position and use Feeding Friend to support under your arm and or wrist whilst cradling your baby
- To store, open the valve in an anti-clockwise direction and roll up pillow starting from the tip of the wedge
- Once rolled, tighten the valve so it is closed and secure inside storage bag
- Tighten drawstring to prevent expansion and to maintain compact & neat shape of deflated pillow.
