When I was pregnant with my first baby, the only breastfeeding pillow I was aware of was the Boppy pillow. It is in all of the pregnancy magazines and baby magazines. I ended up buying one and then I bought a slipcover for it as well. For one thing, if you have a bigger waist, it ends up not covering much of the sides of you. One item that I've done is that I turn the pillow sideways like a "C" in order to nurse the baby on one side. It does support the baby so that the baby is closer to the level of the breast for breastfeeding in the football hold for me. My baby does not like the football hold on one side and it seems like the baby keeps slipping off of the pillow even in the "C" shape. This may or may not have anything to do with the pillow, but it seems that if there is a pillow for breastfeeding, it should work for both sides. The pillow is good for propping the baby up so there are others uses for it. It just seems that as a breastfeeding pillow, especially if you are larger waisted, I would go with a pillow like My Brest Friend instead. Ease of Cleaning Buy the Boppy cover and it's easy to take off the cover and wash it because many babies spit up.
