Ordered for daughter-in-law, who recently gave birth to a beautiful little girl.
LOVE THIS MUST HAVE IF YOUR SERIOUS ABOUT BREAST FEEDING YOUR BABY OR EVEN BOTTLE FEEDING TOO. VERY USEFULL BUT I DID HAVE FRIENDS WHO NEVER USED THERES. ITS GOOD FOR BABY TO USE TO LAY ONE N WHEN I WAS PREG I LOVED IT SOO MUCH!WOULD RECOMMEND!
These are the best inventions ever! They were created for Mom but really my sons and husband have used it more. My kids are very nervous with head holding. My husband and I feel better when they hold him that they have the pillow under their arms just incase. My husband loves this thing because he can keep the baby right by him. (he lays a blanket over the boppy and puts the baby laying across it.
I love it because you can use it for tummy time. Also, to relieve belly pressure or just lay on his belly and practice neck strength. This came with a slipcover and coupons to shutter fly.
Baby is 6 months old now and we are still using this pillow. It is super versatile. I also have "my brest friend", and arguably that pillow is the best for feeding support, but the Boppy wins for versatility. I'm currently using it to put behind the baby when she is sitting and playing. Sometimes she leans over too much to the side or to the back, and she falls right onto the pillow. Other uses include a donut for perineal post partum pain, and propping during tummy time. You can also use it across your lap to prop your arms when browsing the cell phone. It's one of my favorite products so far.
To any breastfeeding mother, I recommend the boppy. When my son was very young, I still had to hold him while I fed him, and use the boppy to rest my arm on. When I didn't use it my arm would frequently fall asleep, moving your baby when you can't feel your arm is nearly impossible. At 2 months he was big enough for me to be sitting with the boppy on my lap and I could feed him hands free, which allowed me to be able to feed myself (something that I had found little time to do since my husband is out of the home for extended periods of time) or rub his back and hold his hand while he eats without having the other arm fall asleep. I love this. He also likes to sit in it when I am not feeding him and he even spends some tummy time with the boppy. I love this product and it has made my top five baby purchases, which are (in no particular order):
1. nursing cover
2. a nice breast pump- makes all the difference in the world!
3. muslin swaddling wraps, perfect for summer babies.
4. quality baby swing- mine has a mobile with a mirror on the bottom, 5 speeds, it can operate on batteries but it also into the wall so we have saved a fortune on batteries, it plays 5 different sounds and several different songs, it has 3 different swinging positions, and it is perfect for newborns. It was a little expensive but needless to say some of the best baby money we have spent.
5. boppy- of course.
I'd recommend this to all of my friends or family.
