I knew that most people purchase the Boppy Pillow when they want a pillow to aid in Breastfeeding. I figured I would just go with that one as well, until I came across a sale on Amazon. I picked up the pillow for half price, so I gave it a shot. At first I found "My Brest Friend" to be difficult to use, so I set it aside for awhile. Now I realize that I was just so inexperienced at Breastfeeding that everything I tried was difficult for me ;) I later tried the pillow again and now I LOVE it. The pillow is raised in some places to help support the baby's head. And unlike the Boppy, this pillow stay strapped around you. This gives you more freedom, and you don't have to keep adjusting it like you do with others. Sometimes, I even stand up with it on to change the baby's diaper...when we sit back down he loves to lounge on it and be close to me (of Course I hold on to him the whole time, but this allows a bigger base than just my lap :) The Brest Friend pillow also has a storage pocket to put things like pens, remote, etc. I havent' actually used that yet, but I'm sure some people will find it very handy. I really recommend this pillow for those who want to Breastfeed without their pillow going everywhere.
