Boppy vs My Breast Friend

Hello, I am due with my first in 3 weeks and trying to decide which is better. I know both have there ups and down, but which do you like better? Or is there a different one that you found worked better yet? Thanks

Only tried the boppy, and I didn't like it at all. I felt like I had to be hunched over while using it.

Re: Boppy vs My Breast Friend

I used a Boppy for a while. I hated how huge it felt and was constantly cramming it any myself into a chair, didn't like how huge it was. Went to a bf support clinic at a hospital at 1 month and they introduced me to this one:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

LOVE LOVE LOVED it. It's firmer so baby doesn't sink down. Fits in smaller chairs. Takes up less space in general. Super light-weight I used it for 9 months and aside from the cover getting worn (should have purchased an extra), it worked good as new and would have for lots longer. When baby was tiny, I'd put a small couch pillow under it so it sat higher. As he grew I didn't need to do that.

I would say that the Kushies pillow is like a shrunken version of My Breast Friend as far as what the pillow portion is made of. It's only about 14-16" long.

I have only ever used the Boppy and I loved it. Especially with the c-sections it helped keep weight off of the tender abdomen.

My breast friend was the better of the two in my opinion. Being able to tighten it around your waist rather than propping it up like the boppy was great.

Re: Boppy vs My Breast Friend

I have only used the boppy. I didn't like it at all. I am short with large breasts. Thus meant baby was pushed up to high for me to feed my baby. Very impractical for me. I think mine got all of 5 minutes use.

I have used both and liked both. In the beginning we liked the breast friend because it is firmer baby was less likely to fall asleep. As dd got older say 4 ish months we would go with the boppy and still use it at nap and bed time for support. Love it!!

I have used both and really did not like the bobby at all. When I just had the bobby I actually started using the travel pillows instead.

I liked the boppy better because of this as well!
