Can you tell us a little about the product you have entered into the awards?
Buddy is a multiple use pillow which can be used throughout the developing years. It can be used as pregnancy support, but also as a support during and after feeding the baby. When babies learn to sit, Buddy can prevent the baby from falling backward or sideward when the baby is placed between the legs of Buddy. To strengthen the baby’s back and neck muscles, Buddy can be used as a tummy time aid. While growing up, Buddy can be used as a comforter and a conventional neck rest pillow.
