I have many products from the Boppy® company, maker of the Boppy® Best Latch™ Breastfeeding Pillow; Support for all Momkind® so I was more than happy to get a chance to try another one and write about it.
I have an extremely well loved original Boppy feeding and infant support pillow. I also happen to have a travel pillow, a pregnancy pillow, and two newborn loungers all from the same company. I guess you could also say I am a fan of pillows? When it comes to breastfeeding I love having support. While I might call myself a pro now (nursing my third here) it took a long time to get comfortable and get my positioning right when breastfeeding was brand new to me.
I am still using my first Boppy feeding pillow with my third baby, but I was excited to try a (new to me) pillow; the Boppy Best Latch Breastfeeding Pillow.
About the Boppy® Best Latch™ Breastfeeding Pillow:
This breastfeedding pillow was developed with a lactation consultant to make it one of the best breastfeeding solutions for nursing moms.
The first thing I noticed about this pillow is the shape and feel. It is a little different from the original and feels more structured. One side has a firm surface with a minky soft fabric and the other side is softer and has more give.
The firmer side is wonderful for nursing a newborn. I’ve always had to add additional support under my nursing pillows when nursing a brand new baby. I believe this firmer side will take care of this issue. The firm side has a foam insert which helps position baby towards you, and get a comfortable latch position. And, despite the firmness it is super comfortable on my lap because the bottom side is so soft.
This soft side can be flipped over and used on top with a bit bigger baby. My baby is three months now so she felt comfortable to me on both sides, I can see us using the softer side more as she grows.
The pillow is widely shaped and has a strap with a buckle to keep the nursing pillow against you while using. This is also a wonderful feature because it can be tricky to keep a breastfeeding pillow in place while trying to position a baby.
Again, I had the most trouble with positioning when I had my first baby and had never experienced breastfeeding before. Having support like this can truly help. I believe this pillow is a wonderful solution for all breastfeeding mothers, whether on your first or third baby (like me!). The strap can also be removed if you have no need for it, making it a simple and stylish nursing pillow.
This pillow is also machine washable. Not only the cover like some but the whole thing.
The Boppy Best Latch Breastfeeding Pillow comes in a Gray color and Navy. I have the Gray and love it. I find it neutral and it blends into my living room decor nicely, which is where this pillow is staying.
By the way, I also received a stylish nursing scarf from Boppy to try as well. My first nursing cover I ever bought was from the Boppy company and it was the more traditional nursing cover. Now, I don’t actually cover my baby to nurse anymore, I did when I was a first time mom but I am much more comfortable nursing uncovered now. I do however, like to cover up large areas of skin at the top of my shirt depending on my outfit. This scarf works perfectly for this because it can be worn as an infinity scarf and then used as a cover, burp cloth, whatever! I love it and it will be great to wear going into fall.
Where to purchase the Boppy Best Latch Breastfeeding Pillow:
This pillow can be found at most well known baby stores for $45 including:
It’s money well spent to me. I’ve been using my first Boppy pillow for over four years and it’s still in perfect shape. I have also used my pregnancy pillow through three pregnancies and it has maintained it’s shape.
If you like the nursing scarf I am wearing you can find it at many of the same stores:
