Ok - my daughter is now 5 months old. I have used this pillow at EVERY feeding since the day she was born. It is larger than the actual boppy so it's a lot more comfortable. The middle seat part is great for when baby is older too. I have thrown it into the washing machine countless times and it still holds strong. This is a fantastic product. If Cuddle-U ever needs a spokesperson, I'm there. Seriously, love love love this pillow!

I had a c-section with my daughter and i took this pillow with me to the hospital. i dont know what i would have done if i didnt have it. i wasnt able to lift my baby for a long time while i was recovering and when i was breast feeding this came in VERY handy. my daughter is a week old now and she sleeps in the pillow all the time. she loves it and i love it. It was an awesome investment and im super happy i bought it. I rave about how much i love it when people come to visit and i know im just gonna love it more as she grows becuz it will allow her tummy time that she will enjoy and it will help her sit up as well. I dont know how i got along without it with my first child. i love it sooo much that i could wait to share my opinion on here.
Great 4 Newborns
I had a problem with my newborn not wanting to sleep in a bassinet... This is how I attempted to solve it. Now she falls fast asleep and I dont have to worry about her rolling over due to the little holders that velcrow on the sides... I tried to use it to breast feed which would have worked perfectly except the fact that the hospital gave her a bottle and now thats all she will take. I take this with us also so I can just lay her on it when she wants to sleep. I love it... Very worth the price and use is the same as a boppy just cheaper... Only problem is no cover for it and you cant wash it in an accident... I machined washed mine it turned out fine but they tell you not to...
BABY USES 24/7
This pillow was helpful breasfeeding but even more so for my baby to sleep on. She uses it 24/7 for bottle feedings as well. The only problem I have is since it does not come with a cover, how to get it away from baby long enough to wash and air dry? Just can't do it, so I just cover it with a blanket. If I had known that this item would be this useful, I would have purchased covers for it. My baby sleeps in bed with me in her pillow (until she is able to roll over- I have not used the straps yet) & during the day, I move it downstairs to the couch for feedings and naps.
Our comfy pillow~
I believe the concept of this product is great. My 2 month old loves to lay in it. The pillow is thicker than the Boppy which she really prefers because she gets a better view of the world around her. I also had a c-section and the comfort of holdign her on the pillow really helped with my incision pain. BUT -- my complaints with this... as many have mentioned, a cover is not sold with it. Having a baby that seems to spit up at least an ounce with every bottle has already started to take its toll on this. I was using Tide wipes and washing it as best as I could, now I have just resulted in covering it with a receiving blanket that I tuck behind her, and quickly change out when we have spitup issues. Also -- more specific to my pillow, I ordered it online and when I got it one ofthe seems was already split open. Since our local Walmart doesn't carry these pillows I was afraid to send it back because who knows how long before I could get another one and I really needed it after the c-section. All in all I would recomend it over the Boppy.. much more cushion and better features (with the security strap)
Right Pillow, Wrong Model. See Below.
Why is this the wrong model? Leachco makes what appears to be a decent line of infant support pillows. Their product is very similar to the popular one sold in baby specialty stores, except theirs is about $25 and the popular brand is $40 or more. Walmart carries several models of the better priced Cuddle-U brand on line, and one particular cover design in the store. If you look at the online write-ups, the pictures seem identical except for the color and designs of the cover on the pillow, all are priced about the same. The descriptions upon quick reading all are about the same, but here's where the confusion and problem creeps in. Thinking all are the same except for the cover design, buyers will graviatate to the design that best suits their nursery colors or typical boy/girl blue/pink combos. However, SOME PILLOW DESIGNS COME WITH A REMOVABLE AND TOTALLY WASHABLE OUTSIDE COVER, WHILE OTHERS HAVE A PERMANENTLY ATTACHED COVER THAT CANNOT BE WASHED, ONLY SPOT CLEANED. One only has to be around a newborn for a short time to know that spills and drips from every end are part of the daily routine. Unless you want to throw the pillow away after a short time, good hygiene and baby care requires regular washing of all of baby's things. Spot cleaning will result in an unacceptably funky looking and possibly smelly pillow in a short time. THIS PINK MODEL IS VERY PRETTY BUT HAS A PERMANENT COVER. I didn't realize it until I ordered it on line and got it, and then called the manufacturer to verify it. For this reason, I gave it only a fair rating. However, you can buy the animal print sold in the stores and online for the exact same price and it does come with a removable, washable cover. If you order a spare cover at the time of pillow purchase ( which I recommend) to put on it while you're washing the original, Walmart will discount the second cover to a bundle price of under $10. This pillow with changeable covers would get a much higher rating and be recommended to others. And you're still paying less than you would for the famous brand sold in specialty stores.
