How do I inflate Feeding Friend?
Feeding Friend is really simple and easy to inflate, all you have to do is:
- Loosen the drawstring to open the storage bag
- Remove the deflated pillow
- Open the valve by twisting it to the left
- Unroll the Feeding Friend with your hands and allow the pillow to inflate and take it's shape (this may take up to 30 seconds)
- Once you are happy with firmness, close the valve by pushing down on it slightly whilst and turning it to the right. This will tighten the valve
- When the valve can no longer be turned to the right, your pillow is ready to be used
*Please Note: INITIAL INFLATION may take longer. Please pre-inflate Pillow prior to use. This can be done by twisting the valve open and allowing the pillow to inflate over a period of time. Alternatively, cool air can be blown into the valve to allow the pillow to take its complete shape. The pillow will inflate faster with regular use. If valve is not closed, air can escape once pressure is placed onto the pillow, which will affect firmness.

What material is Feeding Friend?
We've designed Feeding Friend with two materials: the interior is made from PVC & foam. While the exterior is made from 100% Polyester. The foam density has been carefully selected for it's level of firmness. The best part is that you can control the firmness so if you prefer a softer pillow, you can adjust this by simply closing the valve prior to complete inflation. Alternatively, allow Feeding Friend to take it's full shape to benefit from it's cushioned support. We've also developed the overall design with hygiene in mind. Feeding Friend is simple to clean in the event of any spills. The cover can be easily removed for washing and the interior PVC lining can be wiped down with a sponge or cloth.
What are the dimensions of Feeding Friend?
When Feeding Friend is inflated it's nice and compact with a length of 48cm and a height of 15cm (L: 48 cm or 18.9", H: 15 cm or 5.9"). We found this to be the most ideal size for feeding on the go. When Feeding Friend is deflated it's only 28cm long with a height of 24 cm (L: 28cm or 7.9", H: 24 cm or 9.5"). This small size is perfect for travel. Feeding Friend conveniently fits under a stroller and can be easily stored away in cupboards and out of sight.
What is the weight of Feeding Friend?
We understand first hand what it is like to travel with babies! Weighing only 349 grams (0.769 lb/ 12.31 oz), it is very light weight, making it practical and super portable for you to take whilst out and about. Relax at a park, BBQ or family gathering and enjoy the company of others without experiencing the aches and pains associated with feeding. Our goal is to help parents feel less anxious and more comfortable and confident whilst feeding at any time and place. We believe a parent/care givers health is just as important, so we've made sure our pillow is super light to encourage parents to take it with them for support when feeding outside of home.
