There are a couple problems.
First, for the price I would expect it to have a cover. Obviously, it doesn't come with a cover.
Second, the harder newborn mat on top is angled in such a way that my newborn rolls down and gets wedged in between the pillow in my tummy, and I have to continually adjust him because of the angle. It also has a higher edge around it so he doesn't fall off, however I don't think it would actually keep him from rolling off, but it does keep me from getting up close to my desk if I am nursing while working. If I try to wedge the edge of the newborn mat under my desk as I can with my generic Boppy, it makes the whole thing awkward and unstable. While perhaps this would be helpful if you're just sitting there on a couch or something, because of the way it angles downwards and encourages my newborn to flop off the pillow and onto my belly, I don't find I prefer it even on the couch.
Third, for the price I would expect the stitching and construction to be impeccable. However, as soon as I purchased it, the Velcro tab holding the little angled pillow at the very bottom started coming off. I'm finding that the Velcro tabs which hold the three pillows together are sewn on very poorly, and are all coming loose, even though my baby is only six weeks old and we haven't even used this pillow as the primary nursing pillow.Read more ›
They also advertise "machine washable" but that also only applies to the larger pillow, not the newborn mat. The newborn mat can only be wiped clean. Newborns tend to have a lot of diaper accidents and spit up that wouldn't wipe clean from an off white fabric. Plus, don't you want to be able to wash it if they do poop on it? Well you can if you buy the slipcover for an additional $20. The fabric itself is horrible quality. It feels rough to the touch and reminds me of the cheapest sheets you will find for sale. Check out my pictures in photo gallery to see it up close. You really have to buy the slipcover with this pillow making it an $80 investment. Yikes.
As far as positioning goes, they have claims that the pillow is "award winning" and developed with lactation consultants. I sat down, put the pillow in my lap and it was nearly touching my chin ( I am 5'6). It is absolutely enormous. Even after I squashed it down as much as I could, I still had to lift my breast onto the pillow to nurse her resulting in a horrible latch and a lot of pain. I took both the "optional" mat and small pillow off and while she was at a better height then, she still couldn't latch properly on this pillow. OUCH. Back to the Boppy and she latched perfectly and I was back to two hands free again.
Bottom line is this pillow is awkward, uncomfortable to use and toxic. Save a lot of money and invest in a different pillow.
With my last baby, I upgraded to the Bliss nursing pillow, and I love it. It's nice and tall, so baby is positioned right where she needs to be. Plus I like the firmer attachment to put on top for smaller babies. Honestly, I didn't really use the small attachment that gives an incline, but I think that's just my preference.
Let me start by saying that I'm not a small woman. I'm nearly 6' tall and have a long torso. With that said, this pillow is massive. Granted the weight of the baby sinks it down some but not nearly enough for a comfortable breastfeeding position. The pillow and right height mat stand about 11" tall off the lap. With the pillow boost it's more like 15". I'm used to using a Boppy pillow which stands about 6" tall so in comparison this thing is just massive to me. Perhaps if I hadn't already been used to the Boppy I would have been more receptive to its size but it is what it is. With the Boppy being the most popular breastfeeding pillow out there I'm sure I'm not alone in my opinion.
The product is well made and for that I give it 3 stars but the size is a deal breaker for me and I cannot recommend it. It's really a shame as it has so much potential.
