    boppy, my breast friend, nursing pillow??? HELP!

    which would you recommend (I've been trying to read all the reviews online) and where can you buy them in hong kong (costs? delivery?)?

    just had my baby and can't get comfortable at all, my back is killing me but i really want to stick this out so need to find something suitable asap!

    any advice/recommendations much much appreciated!!!

    ps. does anyone have a my breast friend inflatable pillow and what do you think about it? it seems good to save space later and good for travelling too?

    Only ever used My BrestFriend and loved it! I initially just used a pillow, but got My BrestFriend upon SIL's recommendation and it had made all the difference.

    I've seen My BrestFriend at B2B. I can't remember how much I got mine for, though.

    I would NOT recommend one that forms to your body, like it has little foam beads in it or something. I have a Minimoto one, and though it was a great pregnancy pillow as it stretches out, it`s less comfortable for a BFing pillow.

    I LOVE the ones that form to your body with the little foam beads. I liked to shape it so that my baby fed angled a bit upright, as he had reflux.
    I used the Theraline by Grobag, bought from B2B.
    So much more versatile, and last until the baby is much bigger.
    They also make great support cushions when the baby starts to sit up.
    A friend also made a little play-station with hers by sitting her baby in a bumbo and wrapping the pillow around in a circle and placing different toys on it.

    Like Matty, we used our Bobby pillows after I finished nursing our son as well. It was both a feeding pillow and provided support for his back. He would hold his own bottle lying down in the middle of it it as it provided the best angle and then when he needed more support sitting up, we wrapped it around him which was perfect.

    i swear by My Brest Friend (only sold at Bumps to Babes). I find that for the Boppy, the baby always slip in between me & the Boppy. But for My brest friend, baby lies comfortably on it. Would not have survived nursing my first child without it. I think you can go to bumps to babes & ask to try them out.

    but for trying, if you're pregnant now, you can't really try on the brest friend cos your tummy will be in the way, but you can have an idea.
