My LO is having some trouble dealing with my overproduction/fast letdown, and I also happen to have a very long torso. The amount of pillows, towels, and such that we're having to use to get him up to my breast and positioned with his head above his stomach is becoming truly ridiculous and unmanageable for both of us. I'd like to buy a foam wedge that could help position him better for breastfeeding, but haven't been able to find one anywhere without flame retardants. Does anyone know of a company that makes them without FRs? Or a product I could use?


Thank you so much!  LO is one month old and I'm still sleep deprived and recovering from birth. Having trouble spending much time online to research.

I had a piece of foam custom cut for me at a local foam store. You could find one and call to see if they sell foam that isn't treated with flame retardants and then they could cut a piece for you to your specifications.
