I got this Boppy pillow as a gift at my baby shower. One look and I thought yeah right what am i going to need this for. Well you need it if you are going to breastfeed.
My sons were both very large and heavy babies and it would kill me to have to hold them to feed them. Solution=boppy, place it around your stomach on your lap and place the baby on it. It holds the baby in the perfect position to feed and you don't have to hold them.
By the time my second son was born I knew that the Boppy was something I could not possibly live without.
And later on after breastfeeding is over, it is a comfortable pillow for them to lay on and be propped up. Perfect for watching Tv or keeping an eye on Mommy while she folds laundry or makes the bed or any such chore.
So after thinking it a silly gift I felt horrible because it soon became my favorite gift.
