boppy vs. my brest friend pillow

I had a Boppy last time around and liked it. Only issues were that I needed to boost it a bit (I'm 6ft) and when DS was bigger (15lbs+) I found he kind of rolled off of it.

Thinking about getting a my brest friend pillow this time around to see if I like it better.

Any comments or recommendations? Has anyone tried both and do you have a preference?

  • I love my Brest friend! I do have to prop it a bit but nothing compared to the boopy

  • I use boppy upstairs with rocker but my breast friend in the living room all during day and on trips. I love that it has a pocket because I keep my shield in there without fear of losing it

  • I have both. I haven't used either in 4+ months...I only really find a nursing pillow useful for the newborn phase.I used the MBF all of once...with how it fastens behind you, I couldn't sit comfortably with it on. I must preferred my boppy - plus the boppy has other uses.

  • I have both and much prefer MBF.  I find it more sturdy and provide better support.  W/the boppy, I constantly worry about LO rolling off it.

  • I have 2 boppys and like it as it also plays other roles. When ds was a newborn, I had to use a folded towel to prop him up a bit more to be at nipple level.

  • I have both. Much much prefer my Brest friend to boppy. It is firm and provides really good support. My baby is 3 weeks old , so that's based on my experience so far.
