    Default Recommend a breastfeeding pillow

    Im looking for a breastfeeding pillow - regular pillows just arent cutting it

    I havent discounted the my brest friend but it looks big & cumbersome & awkward & it might be too wide for the arms on my glider chair. Interested to hear what people think of it

    Im kind of tossing up between the boppy & the milkbar at the moment. Are they thick enough to not need another pillow underneath? Do they provide support for your elbow/arm?

    I have the milkbar (I have 2 - one upstairs & one downstairs, both were gifts) and I really like it. The height is perfect for me and it's wide enough for good support without being too bulky. I haven't tried any others though so don't know how it compares.

    I had the mombo deluxe which was amazing until DD was 9 months then I moved to the breast friend twin pillow so it was big enough for her.

    I have a Hush Hush feeding pillow and like it. I still use sometimes it for bottle feeding.

    Cue, how long do you think you can use the milkbar for before they get too big for it?

    I only breastfed for 3 months with DD so it's hard to say. I think it would be fine up to 1yo but DD was a small baby so not totally sure.

    I have a mombo. My DD is still using it at 16 mths. She isn't a tiny thing either!

    I am suffering from back pain and cannot sit for long without support so using feeding pillow for breastfeeding my twins. My pillow has a perfect height and width to fit in my babies.

    I've got one of these 'booby bird' pillows and absolutely love it. It's the perfect hight/firmness and curls snuggly around your body. You can choose your own material before its made.
