TendHer nursing Pillows for Nursing Review and Giveaway

Pariday TendHer nursing pillows for your breasts are such a great invention. Pariday was founded by three women who experienced breastfeeding pain including sore nipples, plugged ducts, mastitis, cracked nipples, engorgement, a poor latch and more – and needed relief! They each came from a different background, spanning manufacturing design to brand management. But they all came to the same conclusion: the products available for soothing breastfeeding pain had immense room for improvement. TendHer Pillows was created by them to give other real moms a real solution.TendHer nursing pillows can be used hot OR cold! TendHer nursing pillows consist of pillows and pillowcases. The pillows are filled with cool on contact gel that is made with vegetarian food ingredients, safe for a nursing mom and her baby. The outside of the pillows are made of a soft, medical grade plastic film for maximum soothing. The pillowcases wick away moisture while preventing minor leaks. TendHer nursing pillows can be used warmed, cooled or at room temperature. The pillow cases are washable and reusable. TendHer pillows are the perfect size! TendHer pillows cover a large area of your nipple and breast and can be worn in your bra while in public. 


TendHer pillows should last at least 4 weeks. If you keep them in the fridge or freezer, they will last much longer. Unless the pillows are starting to yellow or dry out, you can continue to use them indefinitely. TendHer pillow cases are washable and reusable. The pillow cases are very soft and comfortable.

I first tried the TendHer pillows at room temperature. When I put them on, I noticed they were cool. You can use TendHer pillows without the pillowcases when using them at room temperature. TendHer pillows are great for providing a cooling sensation while protecting your skin from touching fabric. There is no suggested time limit when using TendHer at room temperature. Keep them on your breasts as long as you desire!

Putting something cold on your breast can help with engorgement. Cold helps to decrease inflammation. With the TendHer nursing pillows, you can put the pillows in the refrigerator or freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes before using them. Once they are cool enough, insert the pillows into the pillow cases and wear them in your bra with the red stretchy fabric against your body. It is suggested to wear them for up to 20 minutes. The TendHer pillows get cold, but not too cold. They have found the prefect level of coldness for your breasts. I used the TendHer pillows cold and put them in my bra to soothe my tender nipples. The coolness lasted for the full 20 minutes when I wore my TendHer pillows. I must admit, I have worn TendHer pillows cold on hot days just to cool myself down. You can use TendHer cold whenever you would like a cooling sensation. But always use the pillowcases!

TendHer pillows are easy to insert in the pillowcases


Using heat when nursing is great for triggering a letdown. I would take a warm shower before I nursed or I used a hot rice bag. The rice bag would get WAY too hot. I couldn’t use it for very long. TendHer nursing pillows are the perfect temperature when heated! You heat TendHer pillows just like you would heat breast milk. To heat TendHer pillows, you immerse them in a bowl of warm water for about 5 minutes. The water should not be hotter than what you would comfortably bathe in.  After 5 minutes, take the TendHer pillows out, pat them dry, and place them in their pillowcases. Then wear them in your bra with the stretchy red fabric against your skin. The recommended time to wear TendHer warm is 10-20 minutes. When I wore the TendHer pillows, they were very warm but not too warm. I was able to feel the heat for about 15 minutes. The heat was not so intense that it burned me or I felt the need to remove the pillows. I would use TendHer pillows warm when I want to soothe sore nipples, increase milk flow or letdown, or just for comfort. 
Discreet size, perfect for wearing anywhere!


To clean TendHer pillows, simply wash them in warm soapy water and pat dry or allow to air dry. TendHer pillow cases are machine washable, or you can wash them by hand. It is recommended to air dry the pillow cases. 
TendHer pillows are very comfortable and soothing. When I was wearing TendHer pillows, I forgot they were even there. I used heat before almost every nursing session in those first few weeks. TendHer nursing pillows would have been so much better than my rice bags!
