The Boppy pillow may look funny, but as a new mom you will find it indispensable. You simply slip it around you waist and it supports baby while you are feeding (breast or bottle) baby. It is designed to help take the stress off of your arms and your neck as your hold your child.
It is also used to help baby sit up (place baby in the center) and is a great tool for tummy time. Pictured is the Boppy Bare Naked Pillow with Pismo Stripe Slipcover ($34.99) from BabiesRUs.com.
