I am thoroughly confused on whether or not to order a Boppy. In my breastfeeding class, our teacher said not to get one because it encourages the baby to position himself more on his back than on his side, which prevents a good latch, leading to all those awful symptoms of breastfeeding. Then I was reading some articles on breastfeeding on FitPregnancy.com last night and it said one of the best ways to combat back pain postpartum was to use a breastfeeding pillow so that you don't arch over to feed the baby and to position him at the correct height. I'm already dealing with previous back injuries and I really don't want to exacerbate them more than they already are, but I also don't want to create more problems with breastfeeding than I need to. I'm also thinking that, if I have some discomfort from labor (something that I worry about more and more every day I am overdue), it might be nice to have to sit on.
Has anyone used a Boppy or breastfeeding pillow, and would you recommend it or not? What has worked best for you?
