What is up with those cushions and pillows used in laps when holding babies?

That little bastard is sharp, so the pillows help to prevent parental injuries.

I actually have 2. LOL
Emelia loves it. And, it's good for doing tummy time to improve her head holding up skills. And, it's just cozy in general. I used it for 2 weeks prior to Emelia being born when I was in my most umcomfortable period of pregnancy. I used it around my neck and propped myself up with it on the couch. COZY!
Sometimes when she makes my arm go asleep, I put her on the couch next to me inside the boppy with my legs around it.

It allows for better physical contact because baby is resting higher up on the holders torso.
You also don't have to have the baby propped up on the pillow. I sometimes put her in the circular opening so just hear little head is resting on the pillow, allowing her body to still be touching my lap/stomach...
It's a contraption I wish I had invented. Now they make body pillows for uncomfortable pregnant ladies, specific pillows for tummy time for babies (which yes, we did get one of these little pillows at our shower), and they even make travel pillows.
Big market for these things!
