Re: my brest friend or boppy?

Boppy. I used it a lot for nursing DD1 but now with DD2 it's a great backrest, a place to prop the baby, and DD1 LOOOOVES to snuggle it.

Re: my brest friend or boppy?

The boppy was useless for me, I loved MBF. I had the original and it worked great. I wonder if the preference may have something to do with breast size? I'm more on the small side.

DH thought it was a waste of money because I only used it for the first two months (I guess he thought I would use it the whole time I was breastfeeding), but I thought it was a lifesaver during that time. I would get sore anytime I tried to feed him without it, and the soreness would go away as soon as I used it for a couple feedings again.

Re: my brest friend or boppy?

I used both -- the boppy with my first and the My Breast Friend for 2nd and 3rd -- definately like My Breast Friend better. It fit better and supported better. I was having trouble nursing my 2nd (he was a big 10 pounder and was having latch issues) and my LC suggest My breast Friend and it helped!

The MBF felt too stiff to me. I feel may more comfy with my Boppy. We got tons of use out of it!
