Just wondering if any of you had something like this:
Was it useful? Is it something that I'll really need/want?
Just trying to decide whether to order one with some other things I'm ordering....it's only £12 so for that price should I just get one anyway?
Any advice appreciated, TIA x

I have a V shaped pillow which has been great through pregnancy when sleeping but also great as a breastfeeding pillow after my sections previously. It's a similar to the one you've posted but I've not tried the U shaped ones!

I bought one. It was great when she was very tiny as it helps lift them up, but then I'd forget to carry it from room to room etc. so TBH it got very little use. I've started to use it again as a support behind her now she sits unaided, so they are dual purpose. Mine was a lot more than £12 though - that is a bargain!

My SIL had one which she used for her first. I don't remember her using it for her second, but perhaps her arms were stronger by then! Other people used it when holding the baby, including H, who was really terrified of breaking a tiny baby, so it made him a bit more comfortable to have that extra bit of support.

I have that one and tbh not really used it as it is quite hard and a bit too high for bf (I have big bbobs though so that may be why!) Will probably use it as a support later on though.

Thanks for the advice, it's not actually this one but I've ordered one similar as thought not much of a loss at £12!

My SIL swore by hers. She says they're great, so i'm going to get one. Where are you getting yours from?

I bought an inflatable one from Mothercare this time around that was about £6. I had a section last time, but didn't breastfeed, and found it quite difficult feeding her as she was sitting against my scar which is why i have got one this time around
