COMPANY ORIGIN

It all started from a vision when the owner, Pamela C. Yap-Magallon, just gave birth and was breastfeeding her first born son in March of 2000. Pam thought of designing and producing special breastfeeding chairs. At home she improvised by taping baby bolsters on the arm rests of her monoblock chair, placing a pillow on the sit, a pillow on the back, a pillow on her lap, pillows under her legs as she stretched her legs on the bed or on a table. But she still experienced discomfort and bodyaches. Nevertheless, she stuck it through for 3-1/2 years.

About 3 years ago when Pam was pregnant with her daughter, she bought a breastfeeding pillow from Gentle Hands, where she reviewed Natural Childbirth in the hope to do water-birthing. She used it to breastfeed and the pillow was a perfect fit, size, shape, thickness, firmness – comfortable for breastfeeding.

Two months after she has given birth, she helped a mother breastfeed directly her 4lb. small infant and she let the mother use her breastfeeding pillow. The mother was able to breastfeed and requested Pam to order a breastfeeding pillow for her.

Upon ordering, Pam found-out that the manufacturer, Ms. Bolen de Ramos, a Pastor’s wife, has just closed shop, in order to help her husband with their ministries. Just over the phone, without even seeing each other, Ms. Bolen suddenly threw Pam an offer, “What if you just continue the business?”

So it made Pam think and Pam has always wanted to take on this challenge for the past 2 years now. The only thing that stopped her was the absence of a blessing from her husband.

In the meantime, Pam extended help to other breastfeeding mothers by contributing articles to Baby magazine, entertaining telephone counselling, conducting lectures at preschools, hosting baby showers and donating her healthy breast milk to nurture premature infants and to heal skin diseases and sore eyes of children and adults.

In June 2006, Pam’s youngest sister-in-law gave birth to her first child. Pam helped her breastfeed amidst hospital’s and pedia’s violations to Breastfeeding and Rooming-in Acts. For the first time Pam attempted to make breastfeeding pillows for her and for another sister-in-law, and she succeeded! And her husband finally consented to pursue this.

So from July to early August 2006, Pam registered the name “BOSOM BUDDY” with DTI, processed the necessary business permits with the municipality and BIR, registered the trademark and breastfeeding pillow with IPO, bought machines and materials, started producing the products and marketing tools, and launched “BOSOM BUDDY”.

  • Pam went on a 360 degrees turnaround overnight from unhealthy diet to becoming vegan and avoiding sugar for the sake of her first born son whom she breastfed
  • Despite many possible obstacles to breastfeeding working at a fast-paced advertising agency, she was able to breastfeed her son for 3-1/2 years without a single drop of milk formula
  • Due to deepening principle, she left her 8 year career in advertising and put-up her own events company, RED LETTER DAYS, where she strictly did not handle any food, beverage and drug companies as clients
  • Even with a Caesarean delivery on her second child, she never felt any pain after the anaesthesia has worn-off, she was able to breastfeed in a lying-on-back position as soon as she and baby were roomed-in, and she had a very quick recovery that she was out of the hospital on the second day
  • Son Iezer was healed of hernia through prayers, nutrition and massage
  • The family avoids getting sick by being very careful in every food they eat. But when anyone gets sick, healing is done using natural methods like steam, sponge bath, massage, home-made herbal teas and healing foods. They don’t go to doctors, don’t buy or take Western Vitamins nor Medicines.
  • Pam was able to help three (3) sisters-in-law breastfeed their children
