The dimensionally stable breastfeeding pillow from Barbara Österreicher
- recommended by many Austrian midwives and lactation consultants!

The breastfeeding snail differs from conventional breastfeeding pillows primarily in its shape. Thanks to the curve that resembles a snail shell, it adapts to everybody. The breastfeeding snail is dimensionally stable and the support height can be changed by the nursing mother herself.

On average, mothers breastfeed their babies for almost 40,000 minutes in the first six months. It is beautiful but also intense period. It is all the more important that both mother and child feel completely comfortable while breastfeeding.

If the child is hungry, it is important that both mother and child find a good and comfortable position for breastfeeding. A normal breastfeeding pillow can help - but few have this individual shape that fits the body perfectly. This often leads to several disadvantages of conventional breastfeeding pillows: The baby must be supported or secured with at least one hand despite the breastfeeding pillow. This leads to a stage of fatigue and much more after a short period of time. Here the suction screw is a perfectly supportive and helpful further development.

Derived from Nature

The breastfeeding snail is the ingenious further development of the traditional breastfeeding pillow and is also recommended by Austrian midwives and lactation consultants. The advantages of the suction snail, whose basic shape is taken from nature, are many: Thanks to its snail shape, it fits perfectly to the body and therefore does not slip. An adjustment of the filling is therefore not necessary. The mother always has both hands free when breastfeeding and can determine the height of the support herself. But the suction snail also helps when the baby needs to burp: Simply place the suction snail between the back and the backrest - you now have a relaxed sitting position, with the head being optimally supported to the back.

The breastfeeding snail should not be missing from your baby because it makes breastfeeding a relaxing and joyful experience for you and your child.



The breastfeeding snail is a unique breastfeeding pillow. Thanks to the patented snail shape, it hugs your body perfectly and stays exactly where you put it from the start! This means that the padding does not slip at all - and you have both hands free when breastfeeding.


Each suction auger is made in Europe and the filling is poured into the ticker by hand. The developer of the suction auger is a trained seamstress and a mother herself.


Thanks to the unique shape of the breastfeeding snail, your baby lies optimally at all times and has the best physical contact with you: your baby's ears, neck, shoulders and hips remain in a stable line. This means that the breast is reached as best as possible right from the start and the breastfeeding process is equally relaxing for you and your child.


The breastfeeding snail also helps with burping after breastfeeding: simply place the breastfeeding snail between the back and the backrest. This means that you adopt a relaxed sitting position and your head and back are optimally supported. Dads also have fun with the breastfeeding snail when they want to give the baby a bottle - and still have both hands free.


The development of the suction auger was inspired by bionics, which means that the shape comes from nature. The breastfeeding auger ensures a healthy and sustainable breastfeeding process that is equally good for you and your baby.


The breastfeeding snail has been on the market since 2012 and has been available in textile shops and selected baby speciality stores since 2020. The unique shape of the breastfeeding snail has also convinced Austrian midwives and lactation consultants and is therefore used by many pregnant women and babies in many districts in Austria. This makes it the ideal gift for all young families!


The covers are made of pure cotton and of course meet the requirements of OEKO-TEX Standard 100. They are equipped with a 45 cm long, hidden seam zipper and can be washed in the washing machine at 60 °C.






How to use the Breastfeeding pillow:

  • Breastfeeding: Take a nursing snail and place it around your waist so that its thicker part is under the breast you want to breast-feed your baby with. You only need one hand. Once placed in place, it stays there. Now you can focus on your baby and breastfeeding.
  • Burping: When the baby has finished drinking, hold the baby on your shoulder to burp and slide the pacifier between the backrest and the back with your free hand. This will support your back up to your head. When the baby falls asleep like this, you are already in a very comfortable position for a well-deserved rest.
  • Filling: If you want the suction screw to be a little flatter for the ideal breastfeeding position, you can easily remove the filling material. Add this to the material contained in the bag. During breastfeeding, the breastfeeding pillow flattens over time and can be easily refilled through the hole in the inner padding.
  • Washing the cover: The cover is removable and washable at 60 °C because the zipper is integrated into the outer seam. When dressing, it is pulled over the inner padding like tights. There is an option to purchase an additional change of coverage.
