The GoPillow is a hands-free, wearable pillow that is ideal for breastfeeding moms on the go or at home. The pillow is worn on the arm to simultaneously provide a cushion for baby’s head and support for mom while breastfeeding. The attached blanket/cover provides privacy when used as a nursing cover and warmth for baby when used as a blanket or wrap. The GoPillow is ideal on the go because it’s lightweight and small enough to take with you. It’s not just a breastfeeding aid, it also moonlights as a pillow and swaddling wrap, a toddler pillow and blanket, a portable diaper changing surface and slides into the arm rest on planes to become a pillow for small children. Made of 100% buttery soft bamboo, the GoPillow is great for mom and easy on the environment too.
Tangela Walker-Craft had the idea for the GoPillow after giving birth and deciding to stay at home with her daughter full-time. Due to her two years of breastfeeding she was inspired to create the patented GoPillow! She needed a breastfeeding pillow that was portable AND that provided breastfeeding privacy in public places.
It was then that an idea that she had for a portable breastfeeding pillow was improved to include a built-in nursing cover-up. The GoPillow solved several problems that mothers often run into when away from home with a baby or toddler. As a result, she patented the BEST travel product that a family could ever use on an airplane, bus, car, or train trip. The GoPillow can be used with babies and by children. After several years on her own, Tangela contacted Kushies and licensed out the GoPillow and a second generation of products was produced.
The GoPillow has been featured on Tampa Bay’s 10 News, Bay News 9, Home Keepers, Celebrity Baby Blog, The Montel Williams Show and more. It was named as a “Mom Must Have” in Pregnancy Magazine and included on the Baby Gift Hot List. Steve Greenberg (author of Gadget Nation) included the GoPillow in his “8 Must-Have Gadgets for Your Next Road Trip” segment on the Today Show.
