Twin breast feeding pillows?
Sun, 09-20-2009 - 2:38pm

Has anyone bought one or plan to? I'm not sure whether to get one or just use regular pillows. The twin pillows are kind of pricey. I had a boppy for my dd but I hated using it because it wouldn't fit around me! So I just used pillows for her and that worked out fine.

Interested in hearing all opinions!!!

I tried one in the hospital and HATED it. I threw it across the room in a fit. It was too flat, too rigid, too something. It just wasn't cutting it for me. In bed I used boppy pillows and regular bed pillows, downstairs just pillows and the arms of the recliner to help me prop them up. After about a month we just went with my arms and the recliner arms, and they learned to nurse laying down on their sides or across my tummy so I no longer had to sit up with them and prop pillows in bed.

My friend who had twins 2 years ago loved the My Breast Friend.

Hey Beth -

I bought one...I hope to nurse for a long time, and I was a Boppy addict with my son...but I know that a Boppy will be way too smal for two at once. Also, my doula told me that she has had lots of twin moms have great success with the tandem pillow...which was a major factor in be deciding to purchase as well. So, if I love it - great, if I hate it...well, then I guess I am SOL. ;-)
