Boppy? mal[]function♥jj 1 child; 2 angel babies; Albuquerque, NM, United States 1699 posts

Is a boppy worth it? I've looked at them on amazon and what not and I just cant tell if they're worth buying. And if I do end up getting one, how long would I or could I use it? Sorry if these are dumb questions, I'm new at this baby shit :)
Post and run. I'm at work.

I had one, but I never used it.

Rolling up a regular pillow always worked a lot better. :)

Well I've had mine for over 5 yrs. used it with dd1 and now with dd2. Honestly I wouldn't pay full price. I bought mine with a cover NIP on ebay for like $20 shipped I think :?

Absolutely worth it. You can use it as long as you like. Some people also use them to help baby learn to sit and as a support and as a pillow to lounge around.

I loved my boppy, hated using pillows. I used it for like 8 months maybe?
You can find them used at "once upon a child" or stores like that, maybe even craigslist.

I couldn't live without a boppy. Its the only way my kids would relax without being held when they were little. Now that they're older they still use their boppys as pillows. And I don't blame them, those things are super comfy.

If you don't want to spend so much you can get a Cuddle-U pillow from Walmart for $20, sometime $15 on sale. It's pretty much exactly the same. DS and I loved it before he could sit up on his own. My 2.5 yr old uses it as a pillow when she plays on the floor and stuff :P

Never had one and I've been nursing for 13 months. Never needed it, just used a pillow.

No it's not worth it. I had one with DS and I never used it. But now I refuse to buy anything from their company anyway.
