I'm just getting the last bits and bobs for Olivers arrival and I was wondering if it was worth getting a breastfeeding pillow? Do they help with postioning etc? Are they comfy for baby? They seem to look ok but never really asked anyone how they are to use x
I just bought a v-shaped pillow (£9.99 from Dunelm plus cover £2.99 - uk), and found this so useful for sitting up in bed to do night feeds in the early days. I found after a while at night, nursing while lying down worked best for me and lo, it means we sort of accidentally started co-sleeping! But this works well for us. I never used the pillow for daytime feeds but only because I never got around to it! Other than that I never used any special bf pillows xx
I have a boppy too. It's great! Perfect for feeding, and I also use it to prop her up to just hang out. When she gets a bit bigger it can also be used for tummy time. Boppy is a multiple use pillow! Love it!
