There seems to be so many pillows / cushions for breastfeeding around these days, I wondered if anyone could recommend a particular one that they have found has done the job?

Oh yes!

My favourite one was a boots pillow. It was yellowy and bent like a banana. The best thing was its removable cover and slightly felt-like/fluffy material which stayed put even on my slipiest trousers. Also it is air filled so you blow it up and make it as hard or soft as you want.

this one

I have problems wth my arms are realied heavily on this pillow.

i bought 'my brest friend' pillow costing £45 which has really great reviews but so far havent used it all -- just been breast feeding without one (in 5th week now) they are not essential

I think I got one from Mothercare, own brand job. I used it in the first few weeks (5 i think) when I was getting used to bfing, and I needed help getting my son in the right position etc. I haven't really used it since though, and it's sitting in a lump behind the sofa.

I keep thinking it would be good to use for support for me at night whilst I feed in bed, but haven't rememered to try it so far (my brain not quite switched on at 2am... or 3 or even 4 am)
