I never did...i used rolled up towels under the mattress and when she co-slept with me i used a flat firm pillow which she still sleeps on.....personally i think they're a waste of money and i think towels under the mattress work better as you can add more or less depending on how high you need bub to be elevated to be comfortable...but i do know mums that found them useful

Generally the SIDS guidelines are not to use them. I personally only used one once and felt really uncomfortable with it.
I did sleep bubs propped on her left side and it helped marginally. The part where the oesophagus connects to the stomach is at the back and right so sleeping on the left can help reduce how much is coming up. But its something you should only do in consultation with a doctor and in severe cases.
SIDS advice is strictly no sleep aids at all. (I'm sure you know that but I've gotta be careful as a RISA rep). Just wanted to share my personal experience coz I was one of the rare ones where the docs did say it was probably best to prop her.
