Does anyone have a nursing pillow that they just love? I have always hated the Boppy for nursing. (It did make it possible for my grandma to hold Anna, so we have pics of that, so for this reason, it was worth every penny. But without my grandparents now, the thing is totally worthless.) It is too low and I still have to hunch over. My back is killing me bc Lena wants to nurse all. day. long. I went on Amazon and looked at a few, but all of them had mixed reviews and I am not sure what to make of them. I really don't want to waste money. We can't afford to since I am taking the whole summer off work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I like the My Brest Friend pillow. You can strap it on, it's much firmer, and it has a handy pocket for lanolin/nursing pads/etc

This is going to sound ghetto, but I actually just shoved two cheap walmart pillows into one pillow case making it firm and tall. I change the pillow case as needed andit works better than the boppy.

It is referred to as "The boob pillow"

I also hate the Boppy for nursing, although it is great to prop DD up. The hospital had the My Brest Friend pillow, which was okay but kind of cumbersome. Honestly, I have a big blanket that I stuff around me and it works perfectly because it conforms to however I happen to be sitting.

I've been having the same issue with our Bobby and I just ordered My Brest Friend from Amazon. I used one at my breastfeeding support group and loved it. MUCH less hunching over! And it stays snug against my body because it straps in place, which prevents baby from slipping between the pillow and my body (as she's been doing with the Bobby).

The new boppy with the strap and firm side is nice but I think the brest friend one is the one my lc has and that is very nice.

I use my boppy mostly as a prop for a sleeping baby on the floor. Which is where he is now, lol.

'Scuse the bad typing, please. 'Breast is Best' but not when browsing the internet!

I don't really like my twin my brest friend pillow. The boppy is ok but I actually just use a combination between the boppy and pillows/blankets that are around. My favorite place is the puffy chair in their room and I sort of shove each baby down in the corner pocket on each side of me with blakets supporting them.
