Has anyone used the My Breast Friend inflatable pillow?

I am thinking about getting one for our vacation; but I'm not sure how much of a pain it is to inflate/deflate. My son is VERY hard to position and I'd love to have something portable that will allow better position on the go, but I also wouldn't like to draw attention to myself by puffing up a big/awkward pillow. I'm thinking at the pool for the summer and maybe at the theme park.
Any thoughts?

I use this as my normal pillow because it works just as well as their regular one, is easier to clean, and is soooo inexpensive.

Having said that, I don't use it for travel because it is very difficult to blow up, and takes a long time. I just keep it inflated for home use, and if I went on vacation I'd deflate it and reinflate it when we got there, but I wouldn't deflate it and re-inflate to go to the pool or park or anything. Way too much work.

Okay, I think I'll hold off on this. I already have a "car boppy" so I don't think I'll get it. I guess I'll just keep using rolled up towels or blankets or something. RATS, I was hoping it would be easy to inflate. Would it work better with a little pump, like a compact one for a bike tire or something?

Yeah that might help. I never tried that. I just know that doing it by mouth took forever and made me really out of breath. Of course that was also when it was first opened and all crushed together tightly. It might be easier once its been inflated once.

I will say that I absolutely love it as my normal pillow though--way more than the boppy, and love how cheap it is.

I bought it when we went home for Christmas. I don't remember it taking that long to inflate, but then again my memory doesn't always serve me nowadays. I inflated it again when we returned home, as I liked how it positioned Ella much better than the Boppy.
