    I'd recommend not getting one!!! I paid $100 for a my breast friend pillow used it twice and it now collects dust. They aren't practical as you can't take them with you when you go out and your bf style changes where you don't need one after a few weeks as you gain confidence. Well mine did anyway?!

    I used a boomerang or v shaped pillow, it was perfect and much cheaper than a breastfeeding pillow

    Agreed! Just use a normal pillow. I actually used a pregnancy pillow as it was longer and softer than my other pillows but after a few months you end up just using whatever is handy - a rolled up blanket or towel, a cushion, your knee, your arm etc. like pp said, your feeding style will change so much. I has a few months of just lying in bed every time I wanted to feed..

    I found the milk bar a bit uncomfortable actually as DD was too high up. But everyone is different

    I had a bf pillow for home and a longish pillow from ikea for when I was out and about. the ikea pillow was about $9 and perfect. At home whilst I mostly used the bf pillow, I usually just grabbed whatever I could reach
