Has proven convenient!
May 20, 2015
My son is only 3 weeks old and we have used this quite a bit since birth. It is very convenient for putting him down when I'm up and doing things like laundry or cooking. To be honest, I keep the Boppy on the table and just watch him intently(it is suggested to only use the Boppy on the floor). I have small dogs so I don't feel too comfortable putting him in the Boppy on the floor(without me lying with him, of course), also I like to keep him in eye-sight! As soon as he is more 'able', and moving around more, I won't be able to use this on the table anymore for fear of him rolling(albeit I do keep him on the center of the table). At 3 weeks, he's just a little squirmy.
The buttox indent is perfect to keep him upright, but I actually wish there was also a head indent on the upper part. His head and upper body tends to sink down slightly sideways, especially if he is napping in it. Again, they don't suggest infants to sleep in this(I think they mainly mean overnight, but I'm always overly cautious). That is why you must watch your child while this Boppy is in use, this isn't something I would stick him in and leave the room lest someone else was watching him.
I had hoped I could use this to aid in breastfeeding but it is a little bit too odd of a shape and too large to be of much use in that aspect, so buy a nursing pillow if that is what you're looking for! This is exactly what the title states: a newborn lounger! It's also very nice looking(even cuter with him in it). It's a niche market because there aren't many things you can allow your newborn to "chill" in that don't have a wacky amount of tools(vibrations/swings) and sounds! Also, most other loungers are not easily moved around. This is literally a pillow with a handle! Super lightweight and perfect for anywhere. This is simple and convenient, and does it's job, plus it's a great price! When he's a little older and keeping his head upright, this might be a fun tool to play with him in on the floor! I'm hoping this will be of use for quite a few more months :)
This Boppy is super worth it for the convenience of having it around! Although not heavily used, occasionally this is perfect for my daily life!
Pros:good looking, convenient, lightweight, he seems content in it!
Cons:wish there was a head indent.
Best Uses:newborn lounger!
