Baby item #2
The baby item of the day is the Boppy pillow. I bought one with my first daughter in hopes that it would aid in breastfeeding. I took it to the hospital so the nurses could help me when I was figuring out how to breastfeed. I only made it six months. For my second daughter, we used the Boppy to prop her up while her sister fed her a bottle. I only made it six weeks due to a terrible yeast infection in my breasts that caused immense pain and bleeding, the baby developed thrush, and we were both miserable. In order to clear up the infection I had to use a pump and sterilize it after every use. I cried a lot during that six weeks. Third time around I still don't know what I am doing. I can't say for sure if I will get the hang of breastfeeding, but I won't be disappointed if I can't. I am going to need all the help I can get and I am bringing out the Boppy.
