  • Ive washed the boppy before and it never got disfigured, but i mean its worth buying another one becasue my daughter just turned 3 and still uses the boppy as her pillow

  • Look on your local craiglist, I see them posted on there all the time for like $5 bucks. You can always get a cover for it too, but at least you won't be spending so much on one again.

  • If you are going to buy a new one, also buy a boppy cover, so you can just pull the boppy cover off and wash it. I ended up using both a boppy and a pillow. Try the pillow and see if it works for you, if not then get a new boppy!

  • I love my boppy, too! I've also washed it but It didn't become disfigured after washing. I also suggest buying 2 slipcovers so you can have a second one clean and ready for when you need to wash the first one.

  • I would say that it is worth buying a new one. I love my boppy!! Its the only way that I can get anything done. The little one sleeps in the boppy and the bigger one plays in his walker. The two best inventions ever!!

  • I would get a new one if you can push the stuff around to reshape it as best as you can. I couldnt live without mine!!!
