I'm wondering if anyone knows of a pattern to make your own nursing pillow (like a Boppy pillow). My four month old is starting to sit up by herself, but needs a bit of help. The Boppy worked great with my older daughter for this purpose, but it's way past repair and I'm thinking she won't want to share with her baby sister (my oldest still sleeps with her Boppy). Any suggestions or advice would be great. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I used the one that Jeggie posted and it worked great. I used an old clean shower curtain and then made a couple of covers from old receiving blankets since my daughter has reflux and spits up a lot. This works wonderfully.
Simplicity has a pattern for a cover for a Boppy, but I think one could make the pillow itself from the pattern for the cover. (07/30/2006)
