Peanut & Piglet
Twin Breastfeeding Pillow
The U shaped cushion for your babies to lie on. It has supports at the rear to keep the cushion horizontal and keep your babies in place (with a little cuddle).
The back support sits you comfortably in an upright position. You will find that this is an essential part of tandem feeding twins. The back support also enables your piglets to grow. At about 5 months, it can be turned side ways. This will create support whilst sitting you forward and ensuring your babies are not kicking the sofa back.
Our pillow is made from 100% brushed cotton. It is very soft and comfortable for both mum and babies. It is machine washable and spare covers can also be purchased to ensure your pillow is never out of action.
Not just for twins! Many singleton mums who have had C section deliveries have found the pillow has allowed them to overcome their breastfeeding problems and comfortably feed their Piglet whilst recovering from their operation. It goes without saying that our cushion is perfect for breastfeeding twins after a c section.
Breastfeeding twin mums will find that the pillow supports their babies in the perfect latch position. However, our nursing pillow can also be used to bottle feed babies when required.
Breastfeeding twins in tandem
- The Piglet Nursing Pillow is perfect for breastfeeding twins. It has been designed to enable the best breastfeeding position possible; for both mother and babies.
- The height of the cushion will ensure your babies achieve the perfect latch position.
- The back support enables you to be supported lean back without disturbing your Piglets feed.
- With unique rear supports the U shape cushion will keep your babies horizontal. Without these your piglets will slide backwards!
How do you breastfeed twins?
Feeding newborn twins is not easy, but it is possible with our cushion, some patience and by not putting pressure on yourself. Remember that fed is best.
- Gather all items required. Water, nipple cream, IPad, biscuits...
- Place your Piglets on opposite sides of the sofa / bed (not too near the edge!).
- Place the back support in position.
- Sit down & get comfortable, leaning against the back support. Bottom right up against the base so you are sitting up straight.
- Place the U shaped cushion closely around you. If you are lucky enough to have a small tummy, turn the back support side ways so that you are leaning on the skinny edge, this will close the gap.
- Now you are set. Pick up and load on your first Piglet into the rugby ball position. This is where the babies feet point towards the sofa back (please see image). Get baby one latched on and drinking. The Piglet Pillow is very stable and so said Piglet won't wobble off easliy.
- Next, pick up Piglet two and get him settled and latched. If Piglet one becomes unlatched during the process, then continue with Piglet 2 and get him settled. Once Piglet 2 is latched then go back and re latch your first Piglet.
- You are now all in place, cuddled, comfortable and tandem breastfeeding.

The pillow is stable and the babies are laying fine while feeding. Mother arms are free/can be usede while the babies are being fed. The pillow seems to be the best on the market for twins. But we had to Google hos to use it a few times, before we found the best way for us. The delivery was fast (from UK to Denmark)
Too expensive for what it is. Smelly when you receive it. I had to stitch part of the cover as it arrived with a hole. When you use it it opens too both sides so the babies fall / roll on you into the gap. Missing something to close the pillow in the back, a scratch or elastic to close.
What I like is the extra pillow for the back.
However to pricy for all the defaults.
This pillow is the right size to position the twins right under my breasts. They are lying on it and I have my hands free to stroke them. The cushion in the back prevents me from hurting myself by leaning forward.
I got this pillow for my wife and she absolutely loves it and it really helps her to breastfeed our twins. It helps her keep one hand free at least and it helps her keep her back relaxed. The more you can do to help mum and Twins feel safe and relaxed and do things in an easier and easier way for tandem feeding the better life will be.
Very pleased with my pillow
