Dennis Quaid Loves the Boppy

Supersize This: Dennis Quaid Wants an Adult Boppy

Whether nursing or bottle–feeding, it can be tough to get into a comfortable feeding position for baby. Luckily, the Boppy ($35) lessens the task.

A crescent shaped pillow that sits around mum's waist, the Boppy allows ample room for resting elbows. The lil helpers serve other purposes, too. To learn what they are and why Dennis Quaid can't get enough of them,


When your wee one is learning how to be on her belly for the first time, the Boppy gives her tummy time support under the arms allowing her to hold her head up.

As Dennis Quaid learned from his twins, the pillow also helps prop your tot on his back. A huge fan, Quaid told Regis and Kelly that they should make them for adults.

Boppys ruled with our twins. They used to lay in them and hold their bottles when they started feeding themselves. Sit in them when they were learning to sit. Sometimes they would fall asleep in them. Best photo I have from those infant days was one child asleep on the floor in a boppy and one of our dogs curled up alongside. I used them for nursing some too. Dumb name. Very helpful product.

Sounds very familiar schnappy! My family has made sure that my son has every outfit that Carter Baby makes, hahahaha. He's in different sizes too though, some days he fits in 3 months, other days he's in 3-6 months. He's so used to me taking pics of him in every outfit, that now when I get out the camera he just starts cheesin' automatically, lol :)

stina, I find that managing clothes is tough so far. I have so many (thanks to generous friends/family) and am trying to make sure he can wear them all at least once before he outgrows them. But most of the days, we are still at home, so it seems silly to dress him in something "fancier" than a sleeper or similar. Plus, they all fit him differently (he can wear NB, 0-3, and even some 3 mo depending on brand), so I find myself trying to plan ahead with his clothes, checking sizes and weights ahead of time. All while I sit in sweats or jeans. LOL. He is just now outgrowing his newborn outfits and it does make me really sad. I have taken tons of pics of every outfit!

Schnappycat, I loveeeeed that outfit. He only got to wear it twice before he grew out of it though... :( At least I got some good pics of him in it, lol

My son has the outfit in your pic, stina. Heh. But he's still too little to wear it, so it's sitting in the drawer. Good idea for sitting up, although I've heard good things about the BebePod and the new Summer Infant Seat. I'll definitely have to get some "tool" to help with that.

I got a Boppy as a present at one of my baby showers. I have never used it! It was too bulky for breastfeeding and my son doesn't like laying with it - especially with tummy time. He has a different toy that he uses for tummy time that he totally adores. I like your idea Mavs, I may just try that out when he's starting to sit up on his own...

We used to use 2 boppys to help support my niece, when she was learning how to sit up by herself. We would sit her in the opening of one boppy, then turn the other boppy in the other direction, so the opening was at her back. She ADORED it.

I have a Boppy, but haven't found it that useful since I'm not breastfeeding any longer. I think regular couch pillows have been fine (and easier) for feeding. But I saw Dennis on Regis yesterday touting it, so decided to pull it back out to see what else it would be good for. I think today I'll use it for some tummy time.

I have an Adult Boppy for sleeping....I have to wrestle it away from my husband or dog before I sleep at night.
