Any good breastfeeding pillows for...

Larger moms? The Boppy I used for my daughter (and the new one I got for my son) got a pretty bad crease in the middle and it started to affect the way they laid on the pillow to nurse. It went kinda flat, only right in the middle where the crease was. Is that normal for Boppy? I am a bigger mom. About 200 pounds. When I have this new baby in May/June I want a good nursing pillow again, but if there is a better one than Boppy and accommodates moms with bigger waists I would love to give it a try!



Thanks in advance!

I used the My Breast Friend pillow. It has an adjustable strap that wraps around your lower back with a cushion for back support, too. The one I have is made of memory foam and was helpful in aiding me with tricky positions when dd fractured her collar bone in the birth canal I really only used it for the first few weeks, and just found it was quicker to grab a pillow off of the bed. It was great to have when I was in the hospital after delivery.

I'm not a big girl, but one of my friends is and she ordered a big one off of Etsy. It easily went around her belly (where she carries most of her weight) and didn't bunch up at all.

A big what? Was it a Boppy or a different brand? Thanks.

Etsy is a site for hand made items. It was custom made.
