This is simply THE BEST THING known to a parent. You can use it for so many things, most of all when handling your baby. I cannot fathom not having this around when feeding or just holding my baby. Oh and most of all: buy it before you give birth and take it with you to the hospital. Trust me on this one, you will need it from the first day. I ordered the Monkey design and it's so soft and cuddly! It's big enough that I've even used it for when my back hurts. I love the design as well, you don't have to mess with belts or super wide pillows like the Brest Friend. This goes in front of you, or you can turn it to the side a bit and bingo, your baby will be comfy from any angle.
