I was looking at getting a nursing pillow but was wondering which one to get, I was thinking of getting the widgey nursing pillow but wanted to see what others recommend before buying.
Thanks in advance!

I bought a widgey but it was annoying and useless, too fat and it turned out to be easier to feed without one.

It has been useful for propping baby into a sitting position though.

I got a widgey, it was my mum that suggested I got one and gave it a try and thank god I did, thought it was amazing, took all the strain from your arms and back when feeding for long periods. I just used to push it around my waist and lay little one on top and feed away. I'm pregnant with baby 2 now and will def be using it again, I recommend it.

And I second that its good for helping baby to sit up as they get older. I got so much use out of mine

I got a standard V pillow (M&S, £15). I bought it whilst pregnant for sleeping on - one bit between knees, curve under bump, other end under back, to deal with the various aches and pains! Then when DS was born I could prop it with one part behind me then coming around either side and in front to support him on. He's 6mo and we still use - generally for comfort, for feeding, and for propping him up when he wants to sit with us on the chair/sofa. It came with a removable cover that washes easily. Was quite possibly one of my best buys grin
