My Brest Friend

For over 20 years, My Brest Friend Breastfeeding pillows have supported millions of mums around the world successfully breastfeeding their babies with nursing pillows.

My Brest Friend Nursing pillow was created by Andrew Zenoff after identifying that mother's often used regular household items ie. bed pillows, sofa cushions etc. that couldn't stay in place for long to help with breastfeeding comfortably and at ease.

After extensive market research consulting with breastfeeding mums and over 50 prototypes _ My Brest Friend was finally launched. 20 years later the nursing pillow is loved around the world.

Today My Brest Friend's patented wrap-around design has supported mothers in over 35 countries where it is now sold. It is also used in hundreds of birthing hospitals across the country. It is the #1 choice of lactation consultants and consistently earns raves from nursing mothers, many of whom tell us our pillow has helped them achieve longer holding sessions and more comfortable feeding cycles than they ever believed possible.

Disclaimer: A pillow is not required for successful breastfeeding but many mothers find it really useful.

Ardo - proudly distributed by JB Medical Supplies

Bonding Partner - Endorsed by the Australian Breastfeeding Association

We are delighted to introduce our major bonding partner, Ardo, distributed by JB Medical Supplies. This partnership includes endorsement of the Ardo Carum hospital-grade pump and Calypso personal pump

Rigorously Tested by the Australian Breastfeeding Association

An expert working group, including Breast Pump Working Group members, ABA Director, the Manager Breastfeeding Information & Research, and the Senior Manager Income Development & Marketing was established and developed the evaluation process and survey. A group of breastfeeding women were asked to trial the Ardo personal (Calypso) and hospital-grade (Carum) breast pumps to express breastmilk either in hospital or at home. Their babies ranged in age from 1 day to 6 months. The women used the pumps for a variety of reasons: to stimulate a supply for a premature baby or a baby in NICU; to increase their supply; to allow others to care for baby; or to build stash for when they returned to work. 

100% of women considered the quality of the pump either good or excellent

•100% of women found the pump easy to use

•89% of women strongly agreed or agreed that they would you recommend this pump to other mothers

Ardo is in compliance with the WHO Code and strongly promotes breastfeeding. 

The WHO Code on the marketing of mother's milk substitutes protects and supports breastfeeding. The Code determines how mother's milk substitutes may be marketed without endangering the practice of breastfeeding. The International Code makes reference to each product which is marketed as a partial or total replacement for mother’s milk, including feeding bottles and teats. Ardo is completely committed to observing absolutely each and every WHO Code.

Vacuum Seal Closed System

All Ardo breastpumps include pumpsets that have a Closed System (Vacuum Seal Technology). This technology ensures that there is a total barrier between the breastmilk and any pathogenic agents. “Vacuum Seal” guarantees protection of the breast, breast milk and the breastpump against contamination. There is no danger of cross contamination, even when Ardo breastpumps are being used by several mums, for example when being shared in a hospital environment.

Award Winning

Over the years, we've collected a number of awards for our breast pumps, including Mumii, Gentle Parenting and Made for Mums. We are particularly proud of our Mumsnet awards, the Calypso has been a ‘Mumsnet Best’ for five years and is currently breastpump of the year, all voted for by parents.

Recommended by Midwives

As part of a large-scale Ardo midwife test we asked 1,000 midwives to put our Calypso Double Plus to the test. We then asked the experts for their opinion by means of a comprehensive questionnaire. After 8 weeks, we had received detailed feedback from 815 testers. The result confirms the quality of the double breast pump: 97% of midwives recommend the Calypso Double Plus.
