Ok but I find myself wanting more...
Pre-purchase in my head this pillow would save my back from my terrible posture - and it definitely has helped my slouching. However now my baby is older, heavier and longer at two months old, I feel she has already outgrown it and I find myself wanting a firmer pillow to cope with her weight and one that straps around my back to cope with her size in general as I am constantly pulling it in towards me and holding her to prevent her from rolling back off it. I'm flying internationally in two weeks and am considering taking it as the baby can th...en sleep on it on me on the plane, but the strap is small so I am trying to figure out how to make it easier to carry, e.g. By adding a strap. All up it definitely helps having this pillow and I miss it when I'm out and don't have it, but I do find myself online alot looking for the next step up. Good size for a newborn, provides coverage for discrete feeding, is comfy for baby to rest on or against Baby feels like she is going to roll off, has outgrown it at 2 months, needs a better strap
Good for travel
I bought the milkbar pillow as I found my little boy was sinking into the softer horseshoe cushion I was using. I found it good for chest to chest hold but on one side I use the football hold to feed, and I find he kind of slips off the back of the pillow and I don't feel he's that secure. It is nice and firm though and its compact so great for when I go to other peoples houses. I ended up going back to my horseshoe cushion as I feel he's more secure and it gives my arms more to rest on. I leave the milkbar in the plastic case it comes in and ...leave it in the car so I can use it when we're out - good to rest on if feeding in the car or at the in-laws house etc. Compact, firm, carry case makes it convenient to take with you A bit small, feels like baby falling off it
No good for me...
Ok product, but the thickness was no good for me as I am an E-F cup and it simply meant my baby would be swamped under the breast and not be able to drink properly. So I would not recommend it for large breasted women. I did like the quality though.
Well manufactured, quality matches price.
Not suitable for larger breasted women

Not a bad feeding pillow
This was not a bad feeding pillow - it was recommended from a friend. It's quite compact and easy to store compared to others on the market. It is also easy to get the cover off to wash, (you'll need this function!!) The only thing is you'll need to ensure your legs are at right angles and your back straight (which they should be anyway!) because it's too high otherwise. I found it long enough as I really only needed it while I was learning to feed.
Compact, good looking, easy to wash
I would recommend trying a friends if you can. I really liked the idea of this pillow, as I suffered from sore wrists whilst holding my newborn baby during feeds. However the combination of my torso length and the couch where I fed, meant that baby and I never really got the hang of this pillow. I wasn't able to sit in a way that kept her on the pillow. So it was really awkward and a strain on my body, which is the opposite of what the pillow is meant for. However a friend of mine finds this pillow amazing - so I really think it depends on your shape and sitting position.
Modern looking shape and nice colours. Good re-sale value.
Foam so firm that I could never get a grip on it to adjust the pillows' position during a feed.
