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
