    I wasn’t a huge fan of this boppy pillow. I felt I hardly used it and it was kind of uncomfortable. Maybe if I went with the original one, I would have loved it more. But this one was not for me. Oct 04, 2020

  • I couldn’t have breastfed without this! We used the former side and it was amazing, I have lower sides on my rocker, and large breasts, and even at 1 year we use it every time we nurse! May 12, 2020

  • By far my favorite nursing/baby holding pillow (minus the useless strap). I have used this pillow every day through 3 kids. Washes great and saves my back/neck/shoulders Apr 03, 2020

  • I love love this thing! It took a minute to figure out how it worked best for me, but after 2 babies it was a lifesaver. I could be more hands free with baby laying on the pillow Feb 06, 2020

  • Easy to wash/dry, belt, quality fabric. Enjoy the foam side for newborn and soft side as my baby grew. One of the best purchases. I had the brest friend and quality was terrible. Boppy wins for sure! Nov 25, 2019

  • I absolutely love the double sided features of this pillow. It has a soft and hard side to offer the perfect amount of support needed for breast feeding infants and growing babies! And easy to clean! Oct 07, 2019

  • Way too bulky. I have a short torso and baby was too high up and it didn’t work. A regular pillow worked much better and was a lot cheaper. Sep 18, 2019

  • I definitely prefer this one to the traditional Boppy. The base is supportive for the baby’s poster while feeding. The belt straps around your body to provide support for your back. Aug 02, 2019

  • Too bulky even when remove the bottom, was hoping to be able to use as a tummy time pillow also but will not work till time he can hold his head up by himself. Feb 24, 2019

  • Ideal for c section mom's and small babies the firm side is great for position baby just right Jan 16, 2019

  • I personally did not use this product very much. Due to being short I felt that whenever I laid my baby on it my baby was too high to breastfeed comfortably. Mar 27, 2018

  • The hard side helped tremendously with proper positioning! I will be using this again with #2 and will be packing it to bring to the hospital. Feb 19, 2018

  • LOVE! Had original but always had to shove a pillow under it to get it to the right height for baby to bf. This solved that problem when we bought for baby #2 and I was so thrilled with it. Nov 27, 2017

  • I do not use this at all! Most of the time I don't use anything to support my baby while nursing. If I do need support, I grab whatever is near. Oct 27, 2017

  • I love nursing with this pillow. My guy had a bad latch, so the firmer side worked the best for us. I also use the softer side for tummy time. Oct 08, 2017

  • lifesaver. I use them whenever I am on the couch with my little one. I am not sure how useful it will be as she grows, but for now its a great support. Jun 08, 2017

    Love this better than the boppy pillow. It has a hard side and a soft side and the buckle really helps the pillow stay in place. I feel I get a better latch with this pillow and use it to bottle feed. May 20, 2017

    I registered for this after reading the reviews on Baby Lab. I am tall, with a long torso. The shape of this just didn't work for me. I passed it on. Sep 17, 2016

  • This pillow is okay. The strap isn't comfortable and I prefer the my breast friend nursing pillow for support. This one is easy to wash which I love. Jul 06, 2016

  • Will be using this with my newborn, I'll repost my review after i've tried it out. May 19, 2016

  • Like the design but too much padding. Couldn't use the hard side - baby couldn't get close enough. Needs a washable cover - why don't they have one for this?! Strap was very handy. Mar 29, 2016

  • I never used this. maybe because i had such a small baby, but it just sits in the corner of our nursery. May 31, 2015

    I nurse my baby sitting in my lap now that she is a weeks old due to her reflux. Don't use it much but I see how it could be helpful, especially with heavier newborns, to save your back and arms. Feb 21, 2015

  • Love this! Made nursing so much easier! I love how you can make it stay in place! Nov 07, 2014

  • I used it for the first month that is all Oct 28, 2014

  • great nursing pillow! Loved using the firm side while nursing, then baby would fall asleep and I'd be able to keep her there with little effort. Love that it straps around your body, too. Oct 10, 2014

    It's been alright. I do like the firm side more than the soft side. I do find that I still have to use other pillows to prop her up. Sep 25, 2014

  • I started out with this pillow and it's OK, though I never bothered with the strap. Switched to My Brest Friend, but we kept it so my H could feed her a bottle in comfort & we'll keep it for sitting. Aug 25, 2014

  • The pillow is reallllllly nice. However our wee one had reflux so we couldn't lay her flat. Jul 28, 2014

  • I used the firmer side to lay my son on and it was nice to rest my arms on when he fell asleep at some feedings. Jul 24, 2014

  • This is for the Boppy Thimbleberry- not the original boppy. This is GREAT for nursing. Jul 07, 2014

  • I really like this pillow. I have the original Boppy, the Brestfriend, and this one. This is the one I use most. I like that one side is firm; baby stays on it good. Jun 21, 2014

  • Love this! This has made nursing positing super easy and I love the clips to hold it in place. After my csection I could hold her on the hard surface and she loves to nap on it In my lap on too! Jun 20, 2014

  • I was first given the Boppy Original by a friend, but I'm a much bigger fan of the two sided version with a firm side and a soft side. We've used it everyday since she was born and she's 8 months! Jun 17, 2014

  • I LOVED this it helped me out a lot of times I don't see and wrong or bad in this! Apr 17, 2014

  • is NOT Eco-friendly or hypo-allergenic Apr 08, 2014

  • I had a c-section and could not use it. Apr 03, 2014

  • These pillows are so great for nursing and we can't wait to try them out and let you all know what we think! Mar 28, 2014

  • The firmer newborn side isn't really effective unless you have very large breasts. That said, I use it every day but probably not in the way it was truly designed for). Feb 13, 2014

  • I use it every day! Perfect for supporting baby while nursing! Feb 01, 2014

    • Brooke B.
    • Bainbridge Island, Washington

    we use it for multiple things: breastfeeding, dad uses it to hold the baby so he can rest his arms on something soft, our 2 year old uses it to sit against while he reads...the list goes on Nov 29, 2013

  • comfort while nursing is essential, especially considering how much of your time it takes up Nov 29, 2013

  • Used this all the time when baby was small, worked great especially on firmer side to give your arms a break. Oct 19, 2013

    Why weeLove Milkflow Lactation Cookies:

    In case you need a valid excuse to eat cookies, here’s a really good one: boosting milk supply. Nursing moms need to fuel their bodies to keep up with the demands of milk production and new parenthood. (If you’ve been wearing the same pants for three days—we get it, girl!) While lactation teas, capsules and powders aren’t for everybody, cookies most certainly are.

    Milkflow™ from UpSpring created the first ever lactation cookies made with the dream team of ingredients: Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle. These two essentials work together to help naturally promote breast milk supply in those early days, during your baby’s growth spurts (when you’re glued to the glider for feedings!), and pumping sessions.

    Available in Oatmeal Raisin and Double Chocolate Chip, cookies are non-GMO and made in the USA with all natural ingredients. These tasty treats come in packs of two—perfect for tossing in your diaper bag for a healthy snack on the go. Each box comes with 10 packs (20 cookies total), so you’ll be able to keep your milk production going strong while keeping “Hangry Mom Running Errands” at bay. It’s a win-win.

  • Milkflow Lactation Coffee Pods
  • weeThink

    Moms are all about multi-tasking (just ask anyone who can fold laundry, while doing an Amazon Prime order, while playing peek-a-boo with the baby.) Luckily, here's a way to get multiple things done at once, with a lot less juggling...

    UpSpring Milkflow Coffee Pods give nursing women a much-needed caffeine fix—along with milk-boosting duo fenugreek and blessed thistle—in just one cup of joe. A lactation supplement in easy-to-brew coffee? Yes, please!

    Compatible with most Keurig K-Cup coffee makers, each pod serves 55mg of caffeine and 450mg of Fenugreek to help establish or increase a healthy milk supply (hello, growth spurts!). All ingredients are natural, gluten-free, and non-GMO. And don't worry—the pods themselves are made with mother (earth) in mind, too. They're 100% compostable, 100% plant-based, and BPA-free.

    Ready to pop in a pod and get back to that master multi-tasking? Because there's a diaper bag to be packed + car keys to be found.
