I loved my Boppy! I used it to BF dd. I used it to sit on, as it was VERY comfortable. I also used it to help dd sit up when she got older. She enjoyed it, too.

I didn't care for the boppy. I preferred "my brest friend" the one with the velcro strap. I was too chunky and the boppy tended to drift forward, plus it was more dense and heavier than "my brest friend. "

I Click here to enlarge our Boppy! I never thought I would, though. I am not a slim person by ANY stretch of the imagination. Never did I think it would fit around me. I bought one at a great discount ($14.99!!) and it really works great! I use it to nurse, for tummy time, to help her sit up and look around, and as an extra cushion for under my feet on my recliner!

4 thumbs up here! (me and the baby! Click here to enlarge)

I did not love my boppy for breastfeeding, it felt weird, and was too small. I think they make them bigger now than they did 4 years ago though. I do love my boppy for the almost sitting up baby. You know the stage, when you get to catch the tilting baby again and again...

I didn't have the boppy for the first month or so, and my back was always hurting.

I got the boppy and I couldn't believe how much better it felt!


LOVE the boppy!

I did not like the Boppy for nursing, I was much better with a couple of pillows from the couch under my arm.

We laid dd in ours though, and slept with her up high between our heads (and away from the covers!) in bed, and she slept in it all the time on the couch for naps. Until she started rolling, it was a doGsend...I'm not sure I could have been as comfortable cosleeping without it.

Well, I am a slim person and found the Boppy annoying. If I wanted to sit with my back up against the cushions on the couch/chair whatever, the Boppy would slide foward and there would be this nice gap b/w myself and the Boppy. DS would slip right through and the whole point of the Boppy for BF was lost. I would have to shove blankets or towels in the gap to keep DS at BFeeding level.

Maybe this time around I'll have try differents positions Click here to enlarge

The boppy was totally annoying and I didn't use it. But it worked great for tummy time for ds...I would lay him over it and he loved it!

I loved my Boppy. I think I cried the day I realized my son had outgrown it. He still uses it for a pillow and it was also great when he was first learning how to sit up. I also used it for tummy time because he hated being directly on the floor.

Just wanted to add that in addition to using the Boppy for nursing, sitting, and tummy time - everyone in my family asks for it when they hold the baby - it is so much more comfortable.

I hated using the Boppy for nursing. I bought another made by Medela at a home health store that I loved.

I did like it to use to elevate the babies when they were stuffy. I also used it for tummy time and when they began to sit. It also nice to use as a pillow when my neck is sore.

Harrison is starting to hang off the Boppy and I was just wondering this morning what I'll do when he is way too big for it. Click here to enlarge

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

I'll buck the trend, I don't think her kids are all that in the cute department. not all kids are cute. they have other attributes that make up for that, but look at tweedle's aiden, that is a cute kid. and your kids mel, those are adorable kids. Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

I bought one while I was preg. with dd thinking it was a must have for a breastfeeding mom. Well, I hated it. It made her come to far up to nurse her. I prefered to just rest my arm on a pillow. It did come inhandy when she was learning to sit independently.

I used my boppy for:

a comfy seat cushion after a zillion stitches down THERE.

a laptop desk while stuck in bed.

tummy time without grunts of complaint about being faceplanted into the carpet.

a "trainer" for almost-sitting-up people.

oh yeah, and also its stated purpose.

HOWEVER, I seriously doubt that the Ofishel Boppy (tm) is any better than the numerous other pillows of similar shape. I could be wrong, as I never tried any other brands, but I can't imagine that there's much difference between them.

I still use mine for nursing Claudia (now 17mo) to sleep in the armless rocker in her room.

DH loves to use it as a face pillow for when I rub his back (using it so that his face is in the hole when lying on his stomach).

Gabrielle and I love to use it as a snuggly pillow while watching tv.
