what nursing pillow do you recommend?

I got a my brest friend pillow when DD was born but have never used it because I didn't like how hard it was. I'm wondering if I'm missing out by not having a nursing pillow and wondering if I should get one to use when baby #2 is born. Is there a nursing pillow that you would recommend? or should I just not bother?

I used a boppy until DD was about 10m old. It made my life so much easier.

Re: what nursing pillow do you recommend?

I got the blessed nest on the recommendation of a friend and it was AMAZING! It's kind of pricey, but was totally worth it for the amount of use it got and how versatile it was--it's stuffed with buckwheat hulls, so you can make it any shape you need it to be. I could double it up and use it under my arm while reclining in bed so I knew the baby wouldn't go anywhere if I fell asleep while nursing. Loved it and recommend it to everyone.

I liked the My Breast Friend for when LO was small, especially while she still didn't have good control of her neck (we had both that and the Boppy available). Now that she's got more control, the Boppy is our usual go-to.

I love using the boppy pillow. I used it with my 1st son and am using it for the new lo.

Me too I love my My Breast Friend pillow, esp whenshe was just home from the hospital. It relieved a lot of pressure from my back too.

Same! Way better/easier for newborns! But, if you didn't like it before.... I'd go with whatever you did last time... We had the breast friend til Ds was a little older and had more neck control then moved to the boppy and now use nada

I have a pillow from Thyme. Its floppier than the Boppy, which I think I will like. I didn't like how the boppy was so stiff and thick. Maybe since you didnt like the brest friend, these would suit you.
