DH isn't so great for me as labor support, he doesn't handle it too well. He's the dedicated childcare person, and stays in another room. It's so reassuring for me to know the kids are close by, but...

I got mine and sent it back a few days later. Just too big for me, and not enough give to hold the babies on. I went back to using pillows and blankets for propping.
