The Boppy has been one of the best things that we could have purchased (or got for a baby shower gift for that matter). The first two weeks of being home with Kendall consisted of me taking her (and the boppy) back and forth from her room to the living room to the family room - where ever we wanted to hang out that day. Baby in one hand, boppy in the other. It was quite a sight - considering there were times that I had two burp cloths, a blanket, my cell phone, and even possibly my laptop coming along for the ride.
One night we needed some additional things for Kendall so my parents graciously volunteered to go to Babies R Us for us. I handed them quite a list of things as well as my BrUs credit card. Last minute I decided to add another Boppy to the list. I was tired of dragging it everywhere since I used it for every feeding and didn't always want to feed her in her room. Let me tell you - best purchase I have ever made! We keep one in Kendall's room and one in our family room (where we spent 90% of our time when we are awake). We always have it when we need it and now that we aren't feeding Kendall in our arms we still use it to lay her against on the floor while she drinks her bottles. There are times where we even use it as a pillow as well. It sure is comfortable and might even be our travel pillow during our drive to NC in August.
So my first piece of advice for new and expecting moms? Buy or register for 2 Boppy Pillows and plenty of covers!!
