Finding the right position for you and your baby while you feed takes a lot of practice and adjustment.

But thanks to Simplisse‘s new breastfeeding pillow, the Gia ($40), getting comfy is a lot easier.

Angled to help your baby’s digestion and to reduce reflux, the soft, quilted cushion is both anti-bacterial and stain-resistant — two pluses for harried moms.

Plus, you can use it alone or with a machine washable cotton shell that features cute, kid-friendly prints.

Looks like a Boppy. Hmmm.

It is a Boppy upgrade.

I think it’s better than the Boppy. The Boppy flattens over time and doesn’t wash up well. I had to replace my Boppy because it was flat and decided to try out the Gia not expecting much, but it has kept it’s shape and washes up fluffy. It’s shaped a little differently. One side is higher than the other, which is perfect for my 16 month old. My only complaint is it’s hard to find a cover for it.

I recommend the ‘Brest Friend’ much better than the Boppy. I hated the Boppy.

I used the Boppy for my first son and wasn’t sold on it…I just got the Brest Friend for my second baby due in December and I’m excited to try it out!

LOVED the Brest Friend (stupid name, though). I liked the Boppy too for certain situations, like nursing in the rocker because it molded better into the chair.

I’m not sure another breastfeeding/bottle feeding pillow is necessary…But if something helps a mom nurse more easily, then I’m all for it.

I liked “My Breast Friend” too – in particular, I liked being able to move around while continuing to nurse.

I very successfully breastfed my daughter (no bottles, ever) she absolutely thrived, and I never used any of these BF aids. I just held my baby in my arms, and rarely, rested my elbow on the chair-arm of my rocking chair. I had 2 other children, 4 and 15 months when #3 came along, so I was usually reading to #2 at the same time. Why does everyone think they can’t BF unless they have $150 of extra equipment? One of the reasons I loved BF was saving money; not the most important, but certainly a solid reason. With 3 kids 4 and under, every penny counted.

I love the breast friend!! I highly recommend it!
