You need a nursing pillow so which one do you buy? There are a few different ones out there but the 2 most popular ones are the Boppy and My Brest Friend. From Metropolitan Mama, here is a great side by side comparison:

Hobo Mama gives another perspective on the Boppy vs My Brest Friend debate. She also has a description of the lesser known nursing pillows on the market.
Any one out there want to weigh in on this debate?
