Thank You!! I was wondering when someone was going to say this...We are supposed to HOLD our babies, not have them propped...

this thread is pretty old, but my carpal tunnel didn't go away until about 6 weeks pp and I COULDN"T hold my baby Seriously. My arm was so tingly and numb, I definitely couldn't do a 45 minute nursing session.

That said, I gave up the boppy pretty quick after that. It became more cumbersumb than necessary.

And I didn't master side lying until about six weeks either. The boppy (or some sort of "prop") was practically necessary for my tingly and numb arms and wrists.

Somehow I had it in my head that symptom would disappear immediately at delivery. DANG!

the boppy is great for moms with sore bottoms,easing pressure to the perineum without cutting off circulation like. the old hemorrhoid pillows.I was a F cup when i had my dd and needed 3 hands in the beginning to nurse,for those moms i like the my breast friend.
