Did you ever use a boppy or a breastfriend type pillow? i used a boppy when DD was really small, until she was big enough to just kinda fit in my arm/lap without it. If i did not use it, i got horrible back pain!

Yes, I always use a boppy if I can. I like having my hands free and am just more comfortable that way.

I did religiously for the first 3-4 weeks... Now I do occasionally to NAK, but otherwise I don't use it.

Yep, still do at 10 months! She'll only nurse without it in the car or laying down on the bed.

Thanks to the awesome Rachel for my siggy!

I always use a boppy or side lying position. If we are on the go and I don't have the boppy I get sore

We never really used it. Grateful I'm not the one who bought it because everyone said it was a "must have" and I didn't use it but a few attempts.

I love my bf'ing pillow! When we arent laying down to nurse to sleep, we use it religiously. We take it to the movie theatre, or when we go visiting, and I use it at home all the time. He was a big baby though, and still is. My back wouldnt manage if I didnt have it!

I used my boppy, but really wanted my breast friend. I heard it was so much better than the boppy! I will get one with my next lol. I still use the boppy when I'm nursing him to sleep so if I need to help the big kids with something I have free hands.

I used my Boppy a lot more when he was smaller. Now I just use whatever pillow is closest when it's time for him to nurse.

Not in a long time. He is too "busy" to nurse at the computer so most of the time we nurse in bed, or sitting on the floor.

Thank you jaidynsmum for my siggy!

DD1 lived on the breastfeeding pillow for the first month or two. She was a slow nurser or then I had a slow letdown/small supply idk. I nursed her for hours at an end. She'd nurse and sleep and I just never bothered taking her off the pillow. I thought I'd use it again so I stuffed it up but never did use it for DD2. She didnt have the same nursing marathons and I suppose I was better at holding a baby for nursing at that point.

I really tried, but DS kept on slipping through the crack, lol. So I gave it up.

I tried a Boppy with DD and hated it. For DS I just use a regular pillow that's not very thick. I have to have something with this big boy!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!
