Best Nursing pillow

Ihave a 6 month ld and am having horrible back pain from hunching over to nurse plus wrist problems from craddling her head. I hate the boppy. Does anyone us a different brand?

Re: Best Nursing pillow

my kids always rolled of the boppy as I was nursing, lol. Try just a standard firm pillow I have found that is what I end up doing. Hope that helps!

Re: Best Nursing pillow

ooo, I have a GREAT one for you - called My Brest Friend - great great great!!! I have bigger boobs, so I never even held ds, I just held him close to me without "holding" him iykwim. Also, it is adjustable and is waaaay better IMO than a boppy! They are a little more, but believe me, it is totally worth it. Oh, and they are3 not all squishy, so they keep their shape!

Re: Best Nursing pillow

That's what a friend told me. She said My Brest Friend is totally better. I used a boppy and while i'm glad I had something, I had to keep adjusting it during nursing sessions. It was a pain. But, if I didn't use it I had horrible back spasms that would literally take me off my feet. I'm definately going to try out My Brest Friend with our next baby

Re: Best Nursing pillow

seconding, thirding...My Brest Friend. Such a great design. I am a large chested plus size mama and the boppy didn't do it for me. MBF also adjusts and works well for much smaller mamas too.

Re: Best Nursing pillow

So, did you all use the pillows as your babe got older, then, not necessarily at the beginning?

My DS is 2 months, and I haven't had a need for a pillow yet, even though he is 13 lbs now.

My DD is just 3 months now and I've needed it all along. Actually, until recently I've needed My Brest Friend and a regular pillow on top of it. My girls aren't that big and I needed the extra height when DD was itty bitty. DD's finally getting big enough now that we can get away with just MBF and occassionally we are feeling talented enough to go solo!

MBF is EXCELLENT for NAKing!
