Nursing Favorites: Boppy Best Latch Breastfeeding Pillow

This new pillow design is the glorious trifecta of soft, supportive, and easy to clean. A literal GIFT to the back of a nursing mom!

When I was pregnant with my daughter eight years ago, my first purchase at the baby store was a Boppy Pillow. It had a pink slip cover, and all anyone could tell me was how much I was going to use that pillow. And they were right, I used that pillow all the time.

Here's the truth. Breastfeeding is full of baby bonding and baby nutrition magic. But it also does one magical number on your back. Nursing a regular size baby can kill your back without additional support, but I tend to create babies who look like they're ready to try out for the rugby team. Let's just say I need all of the breastfeeding support that I can get.

The original Boppy pillow was created 28 years ago. Think how many backs they've saved! My oldest daughter's pillow took us through her and my middle son, but when Boppy generously offered me a test model of their Boppy Best Latch Breastfeeding Pillow to try for my new little guy, I jumped on the opportunity. Being number three shouldn't necessarily mean that all of your equipment has been covered in spit-up by your older siblings.

With number three, I haven't exactly been nursing in the peaceful rocking chair tucked into the corner of his perfectly orderly nursery. He spends a lot of time being nursed in a car while we wait for swim practice to end or on a floor while I sit criss-cross applesauce and make complimentary statements about Lego creations. Bottom line is, my back has not been feeling good.

But then my new Boppy® Best Latch™ Breastfeeding Pillow showed up, and I no longer feel like a crumpled piece of paper. My back feels better, I'm not hunching over, and my future rugby player looks much more comfortable while he dines directly from the tap.

The Boppy pillow was designed by a Lactation Consultant specifically for nursing moms. It comes with two surfaces to choose from. The firm side offers a solid platform and is covered with the the softest fabric imaginable. It also includes a contoured foam edge that helps turn the baby for an effective latch. The softer fiberfill side is the perfect snuggly surface as your baby starts to grow. The most thrilling news of all is that the pillow is washable.

Remove the foam insert and belt and toss the pillow into the wash. Which I essentially do every single day. We're volcanic over here.

The pillow retails for $45 on Amazon, at BuyBuyBaby.com, Target.com, and Babies"R"Us.com. My back is worth a lot more than $45, and yours is too. While Boppy generously provided the pillow for my family to try, they're also giving one away to a lucky reader.
