I kept reading about how you need a Boppy once you have your baby, so I decided to put this on my registry. I'm so glad I did! I have chronic neck and back pain, so I wasn't sure if this would help me. However, it's definitely been helpful in keeping pain at bay. Even my husband likes to use it! I also bought a couple of extra covers separately. I highly suggest having at least one extra cover, as you never know if baby will dribble or spit up on the current one. This is a pricey buy, but well worth it.
