Bum. Bum. Buuuuuuummmm…..
The infamous Boppy – a curved pillow they charge you 80 bucks for…and that doesn’t even include the cover.
Before I had Clare everyone told me that I absolutely needed one of these things.
“They’re the BEST!”
Maybe they are but…I wouldn’t know.
Let me give you my honest opinion about this little lucky charm of a pillow.
I didn’t use it for breast feeding. Maybe it’s my extraordinary strength or my freakishly long torso. I didn’t need it and I felt like it was more of a hassle to get it and wrap it around my waist.
Now, Clare was good at eating but I can see how it would be a help if you had an inefficient nurser. I can’t imagine sitting there for 2 hours holding a 10 pound baby. I can understand how a larger chested woman than I might need this little item. But…couldn’t you just get a couple pillow? Honestly?
I DID on the other hand use the Boppy to hold Clare while she was new born. This helped change her position and made it possible for me to brush my hair or get dressed in the morning without me worrying about her falling off something and as a result…dying or something.
I let her nap in it sometimes. It was nice.
Then she got big and that wasn’t an option.
So I used it for about a month.
Maybe I will use our 80 dollar pillow when Clare needs to learn how to sit up on her own. But…probably not.
Do you need it? I’m gonna say, “no”.
Am I glad someone purchased this for us? Yes. Of course. How kind and thoughtful.
Could they have spent the money on something else? Probably.
On the bright side – I can use it while flying as a nice BIG neck pillow.
Do you think they’d charge me?
