I absolutely love the Boppy Slipcovered Pillow. I purchased my first boppy pillow in August 2007 for my first daughter, she was a month old. It made breastfeeding so much easier and comfortable for both of us. Not only did I use it as a breastfeeding aid, I used it as a tummy time aide, and to provide a comfortable pillow to prop my baby up with so she can see the world (safely from the floor of course) and toys with some independence. I got the same uses out of the boppy pillow again in 2009, 2010, and again in 2014. The pillow and slipcover have been through the washer and dryer and still look as bright and as colorful as the day I bought it. It's still just as fluffy and comfortable as new. I've used the boppy at home, in the car, during outings where I knew I could sit down. I highly recommend buying one for a first time mom, regardless of breastfeeding or bottle feeding, the Boppy Slipcovered Pillow will help mom and baby bond.
