This is one of my favorite baby items. It truly helps baby feel supported and also helps her rest. Its great for her naps because it gives her a slight incline to help keep her from choking on spitup. I actually put her in it to sleep at night and she slept all night at 8 days old. It seems much more comfy than a bouncy seat. I did use it for breast feeding some too. Its great to use the football hold with the baby and the boppy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This is great for allowing baby to "sit" with/in and take pictures; however, I found that it doesn't reach close enough to my tummy to be truly comfortable while breastfeeding. (Mom =5'7"/150lbs & baby was 8lbs now 10lbs) If youre trying to save money
