Newborn baby feeding pillow

6 Best Nursing Pillows of 2022

If you’re breastfeeding, the process can be exciting as well as a bit tricky. Having a nursing pillow by your side can make the experience easier.

What is a Nursing Pillow?

For most people, there’s a learning curve when it comes to breastfeeding. There will be lots of little things to get the hang of, including getting your little one into a good nursing position that’s comfortable for both of you.

A nursing pillow helps with this by propping your baby up next to your breast. Nursing pillows sit in your lap and wrap around your body, providing a stable and comfy surface to position your newborn at the breast. They also reduce neck, arm and back strain for you, which can help make nursing easier and more enjoyable for both you and your little one.

Do You Need a Nursing Pillow?

It’s definitely not required to have a nursing pillow—you can breastfeed effectively using just a regular pillow. But many new moms find the special design and bonuses of nursing pillows to be super useful during the first months. If you don’t plan to breastfeed, a nursing pillow can still be great for making bottle feeding more comfortable too.

When Do You Need a Nursing Pillow?

You’ll most likely use a nursing pillow every time you breastfeed, which can be a dozen times a day (or more!). After the first four to six months, your baby will have more head and neck control and you may no longer need the pillow. Plus, you may have gotten the hang of nursing comfortably on your own by then.

However, nursing pillows can still be used for supervised tummy time or as a spot to cradle babies who can’t yet sit up on their own. Many babies fuss a lot on the floor for tummy time in the beginning, so a nursing pillow can be used in transition to help prop them up. It also gives them a better view and more interaction with you and their toys.

Most Versatile Nursing Pillow

Boppy is the original, U-shaped nursing pillow (it was first introduced 25 years ago), and it remains the most popular nursing pillow on the market. It’s fully machine washable for the inevitable spit up or unfortunate diaper explosion. The best part is its versatility: it can be used to help cushion babies working on sitting, cradle a lounging baby or as a tummy time prop.

This print is exclusive to Babylist.

What Babylist Parents Say

“I’ve used it for every stage of development and baby care from newborn to present (7 months). Breastfeeding, propping him up, tummy time, learning to sit up, a pillow to catch him when he falls over while sitting up/playing…used almost everyday.” -Emily S.

Best Pillow for Breastfeeding

This pillow isn’t a multi-tasker, but it’s an excellent nursing pillow with helpful features other pillows lack. Designed solely for breastfeeding support, My Brest Friend wraps around you, has a back support cushion and attaches to itself to prevent it from moving out of place. The genius front pocket is great for holding your water bottle, nipple cream, protein bar or other goodies you might need while nursing. My Brest Friend provides a flatter surface than the Boppy so baby is stable and won’t roll into the space between pillow and parent.

What Babylist Parents Say

“I have both this and a Boppy, and this wins hands down. It’s firm to support even the tiniest of babies. It has a seat belt, which sounds weird, but it really helps keep the pillow in place. And it even has little cushion bumps where their head rests. Breastfeeding can be hard in the beginning and anything that can help is a godsend. I still use this at every feeding, and my daughter is 5 months old.” -Nicole O.

Adjustable, Custom Fit

Known for their innovative products that geniusly tackle some of parenthood’s most frustrating problems (we heart you, Nosefrida Snotsucker) FridaMom’s new nursing pillow doesn’t disappoint. Customization is the standout feature here; the adjustable pillow has three interchangeable layers to help you find the right height for your size plus three different cushioning levels depending on how much support your baby needs. There are other smart features like storage pockets for your phone and water, pockets for heat packs to relieve postpartum pain and a t-shirt soft cover that’s machine washable.

What Babylist Parents Say

“This FridaMom pillow is a total game charger. It has to be the best out there. It has removable layers so you can continue to use as baby grows. It makes nursing much more comfortable and my baby always seems comfortable and happy when I use it. I feel like no matter what chest size you are this will work for all nursing moms. The size of the waist strap goes from XS-XL so it will really work for a wide variety of women.” -CL

Most Stylish Nursing Pillow

This breastfeeding pillow from DockATot is stylish and functional. The ergonomic shape curves around your body for feeding support. The plush velvet cover is soft and comfy (just keep in mind it’s spot clean only) and lots of parents appreciate how it’s not as oversized and cumbersome as some other nursing pillows on the market, making it especially ideal for c-section parents. The best part? The chic design means you won’t mind leaving it out in any room.

What Babylist Parents Say

“So beautiful, and super comfortable. Great size and shape for breast feeding, and adds gorgeous moon shaped glamorous touch to the living room. Returning my other ‘traditional’ nursing pillow and buying another one for the nursery. 5 stars.” -Yael

The Organic Pick

This unique nursing pillow has a funky, square design but functions the same as other nursing pillows for feeding and as a prop and lounger. The difference here is in the materials; the filling is made from Organic Kapok (a soft, natural fiber) and the naturally water- and stain-resistant cover is made from soft organic cotton and organic eucalyptus. The pebble design maximizes airflow for baby’s comfort and safety.

What Babylist Parents Say

“I have used EVERY SINGLE nursing pillow out there. Not only is this an all-organic pillow both inside and out (hard to find!), it is hands down the absolute best on the market and worth every penny. This pillow doesn’t allow the baby to slip downwards, it keeps it shape, the pillow covering is thick and comfortable and it washes wonderfully and doesn’t shrink!” -Jenna O.

Best Breastfeeding Pillow for Twins

This nursing pillow for twins has all the benefits of the regular My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow but is designed to breastfeed two babies at once. It’s roomy on both sides so it has space for each baby, and the flat cushion keeps them from rolling around. Parents of multiples also appreciate the firm back support and being able to throw the plush cover in the washing machine.

What Babylist Parents Say

“It is so convenient for tandem feeding! I love it and would not be able to feed my twin girls at the same time without it. Must have.” -Kambri

What Is a Nursing Pillow?

A nursing pillow isn’t just any household pillow. Bed pillows are generally so soft that your child will sink down too low, and throw pillows aren’t always comfy against the skin. Both types, which are generally rectangular or circular, are also the wrong shape. The best nursing pillow is rounded just enough to snuggle against your abs; it’s also firm enough to keep baby positioned up where they need to nurse. And it’s not just for nursing moms—any parent can attest to how tiring it can be to hold baby up in the proper position while they feed, even from the bottle, and a great feeding pillow will maximize your and your child’s comfort.

How to Use a Nursing Pillow

Most feeding pillows are designed to curve around your waist while supporting baby at the right height to reach the breast or bottle. That said, there are many different nursing positions you can try, so definitely experiment and move baby and the pillow around to find a spot that works for both of you. Ideally, baby will be tilted toward you, slightly on their side (not flat on their back), and the pillow should be as close to your body as possible to avoid slipping out. You can also use the pillow to give baby a boost when trying upright breastfeeding positions, like the koala hold. Once you’ve found the sweet spot, your elbows should be comfortably supported, your back straight (remember, slouch = ouch!) and baby’s mouth should be level with your nipple.

But don’t stop there: The best nursing pillows can be used for more than just feeding. If you’re still pregnant, try using it as support while you’re sleeping. And after baby arrives, some pillow shapes are good for propping baby up during tummy time or helping a young child hold baby for the first time.

How to Choose the Best Nursing Pillow

You can nestle baby in your arms while you breastfeed (or bottle feed), but the weight of even an 8-pound baby, held for hours a day, begins to drag on your shoulders and cause you to hunch your back. The beauty of a good nursing pillow is that it effortlessly lifts baby up to the right height for feeding so you don’t have to throw your posture off. You can trust the pillow to do its work and concentrate on other things, like perfecting baby’s latch, breathing deeply to help letdown and chilling out while you breastfeed. When shopping for the best nursing pillow, you’ll want to consider:

  • Size. Some moms prefer a sizable nursing pillow so baby has a wide spot to lie on while feeding. Others want a more compact, travel nursing pillow that’s easy to carry from one nursing spot to another and just as easy to pack for trips. Then there’s the twin nursing pillow designed specifically for moms of multiples.

  • Price. The average breastfeeding pillow costs between $25 to $50. For about $70, you can upgrade to a plush, monogrammed slipcover. Looking for an organic nursing pillow or a twin nursing pillow designed to accommodate multiples? Then you’re looking at closer to $100.

  • Washability. Will you wipe the pillow down, or does it come with a removable slipcover that can be tossed into the washer? While the former is less expensive, if baby is prone to spit-up or reflux, you may want to opt for the latter.

  • Design and style. Nursing pillows are fabric-covered, so there are plenty of looks to choose from: solid colors, prints and even two-sided pillows featuring different patterns on either side. The variety makes shopping for one more fun!

Breastfeeding Tips Every Nursing Mom Should Know

Why do you need a nursing pillow

  • Buy a nursing pillow

For many mothers, a nursing pillow is just a nice accessory, for others it is an essential item that is bought during pregnancy and used for many years.

Let's see if this pillow is really needed, what it should be like and how it differs from a pregnancy pillow.

The nursing pillow, like many mum and baby products today, is designed to make life easier for mother and baby. In this case, the process of breastfeeding.

When breastfeeding, which takes a lot of time in the first months of a baby's life, it is very important to learn how to properly attach the baby , and for this it is necessary to lift the baby to breast level, and not reach for it . You can lift your baby to the right height with a couple of cushions, a rolled-up blanket, or your own knees, but using one special pillow allows mom to stay mobile and saves the headache of finding additional devices of the right shape, size and softness. In addition, your back and chest skin will thank you very much for the absence of pain in the spine and stretch marks on the skin.
Simple arithmetic, with an average time at the breast - 15-30 minutes per application, will tell us that during the day, a mother can take about 4 hours a day, but usually even more, for breastfeeding. Naturally, I would like to spend some time out of these 4 hours with benefit not only for the baby, but also for the mother herself :) for feeding.

During feeding, the pillow unloads the muscles of the mother's arms, neck and back, and you just need to hold the baby with your hand, and not lean towards him and raise one leg higher.

And if you free your hands, then you can: read :), knit :), embroider :), draw :), play with an older child :), check mail at the computer :), drink tea ... and do a lot of other useful things tasks that do not require you to move, but require at least one hand to carry out the process. Especially true for those mothers whose child eats a lot and slowly. After all, such kids can spend 30 and 40 minutes at a meal.

In addition, babies themselves like to be fed on a pillow , and not on weight, because it is more convenient to lie on a pillow, you can relax and feel support under you.

Nursing pillow — a real "must have" when feeding twins , because feeding twins takes a lot of time, and it is never superfluous for a mother of two children to relax at once. Therefore, such a pillow is an essential item for successful breastfeeding.

What should a nursing pillow look like in order to perform its functions as efficiently as possible?

There are many nursing pillows on the market today in different shapes, fillings and pillow cases. Not all of them are convenient and well thought out.

First of all, the nursing pillow must be high enough so that the baby, lying on it, can reach the chest normally. This should be paid attention especially to women with small breasts. Also, this pillow should be dense so that the child does not drown in it under its own weight, but also does not roll off it.

It is very convenient when the nursing pillow has a special fastener , which fixes it well on the mother's waist.

And the ability to quickly change the pillowcase ( zip cover ) is also a very valuable addition with a small child.

Is a pregnancy pillow different from a nursing pillow?

Most companies make pillows for use during pregnancy and after childbirth. Many mothers continue to use one pillow throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding with great comfort, without noticing any drawbacks.

For other mums, it's better to get two different pillows, because, in fact, they perform different functions.

Pregnancy pillow necessary for comfortable sleep and relaxation , as well as for optimal support of the growing belly of the expectant mother . It is very comfortable to sleep with a pillow, putting one end of it between the legs or under the back, and the other under the head. With it, you can sit with your back leaning on a pillow or use it as armrests. She is also a great helper for massage, when you can comfortably arrange a pillow around the pregnant belly. It is nice to put your feet on it to relieve puffiness and reduce fatigue.

Based on the functions of the pregnancy pillow, the optimal shape is Boomerangs , Bananas or Bagels so that you can get in the most comfortable position. It is better that the maternity pillow be soft , the filler can easily move inside it to form the desired thickness for the curves of the body. For many mothers, the ties on nursing pillows are not comfortable during pregnancy, especially when sleeping. Well, if the pillow for pregnant women is long enough so that you can lie down on it with your whole body.

Can maternity and nursing pillows also be used after breastfeeding?

Of course! Pillows for pregnant and lactating women are multifunctional: they can lay the baby on the stomach , which is very useful for the back and arms + the child opens up a good and interesting view. babies love to lie on the pillow like in the nest, and if you have a stuffy nose and a runny nose, the nursing and maternity pillow will make it easier for your baby to fall asleep. These pillows work well "limiters" , they are convenient to wrap around the baby so that he does not roll off the bed or, when sleeping together, put a pillow between the newborn and dad. Yes, and grown-up children and other family members love to play, roll on such pillows and fall asleep comfortably in an embrace.

So, the benefits of nursing and pregnancy pillows:

The pillow frees up the mother's hands, relieves the strain on the muscles of the back and arms during breastfeeding.

  • pillow allows you to change breasts and alternate attachment of the baby at different angles to the chest, including those difficult to reach with normal support of the baby with your hands. The alternation of attachments allows better emptying of different lobes of the breast and thus reduces the likelihood of lactostasis.

  • pillow creates conditions for comfortable sleep and relaxation, and is also convenient for optimal support for the growing belly of the expectant mother.

  • Also:

    Caution: Be sure to hold your baby with your arms when you stand up or bend over! The Velcro of the pillow, fastened at the waist, can only support the weight of the pillow itself, not the weight of the child!

    Nursing pillows - how to choose?

    A nursing pillow is often not considered by expectant mothers as an essential item after the birth of a child - and for good reason! The first months after birth, the baby (with on-demand feeding recommended by experts) can literally spend hours on the chest. Many babies refuse to sleep in the crib at all and sleep only at the breast. In this situation, a sling can help, as well as a properly fitted nursing pillow .

    Do I need a breastfeeding pillow?

    Definitely yes! And here's why:

    1. Learn to latch on properly

    In the first few months it's very important to learn how to latch on properly to your breast. You can use sofa cushions, a rolled up blanket or just your knees to raise your child to the right height, but it is the use of a special pillow that is most comfortable and has many other advantages.

    2. Relax your back and arms

    On average, it takes about 15-30 minutes for a baby to breastfeed per application, and during the day you can breastfeed about 4 hours a day , and often much more more. Without the use of ergonomic devices, pain in the spine, arms, and neck muscles very quickly occurs. A good nursing pillow will save you from all these problems.

    3. Free your hands while feeding and sleeping at the breast

    In an ideal world, newborns sleep soundly and for a long time in the crib immediately after feeding. But in the real world, as a rule, this never happens! Babies sleep well in their mother's arms, at the breast, but as soon as they are moved, they wake up immediately. A sling can be used to do chores around the house, and a pillow with a flat surface is perfect for tasks that can be done while sitting. The child will sleep perfectly on it, without rolling anywhere.

    Nursing pillow is not a luxury! This is one of the most necessary and important devices for a nursing mother.

    Types of nursing pillows

    All nursing pillows can be divided into 2 types: universal (for pregnancy and nursing) and specialized (for nursing only).

    1. Universal pillows (pregnancy + breastfeeding)

    Most pillows on the market are universal. Their main advantage is budget savings, because You don't have to buy two different pillows. But that's where the benefits end. It is impossible to create a device that will equally ideally serve both purposes - supporting the growing belly of the expectant mother for her comfortable sleep and rest (at the pregnancy pillow) and breastfeeding, convenient for both mother and baby (at the feeding pillow).

    However, let's take a look at the different maternity pillows that can also be used for breastfeeding.

    Reversible pillows: U shape, G

    Reversible maternity pillows support both the belly and the back of the expectant mother.

    When breastfeeding, these pillows are placed around the mother and baby. As you can see from the photo, such a pillow performs the function of lifting the baby to the chest, however, cannot provide good support to the child, has to be supported, it easily slides down the pillow, the goal of "relieving stress from the mother's back and arms" is not fulfilled. In addition, such pillows take up a huge amount of space and are not suitable for small apartments.

    One-sided pillows: C, D, I

    These pillows take up much less space, their advantage is that such products can also be used for other purposes - as a limiter and a nest for the baby, a knee roll .

    However, we see the same shortcomings as other universal pillows - too soft surface, so that the child rolls off of it towards the mother; lack of support for the mother's back, lack of fixation of the pillow on the mother's body.

    The most famous brands of these pillows are: Theraline, Trelax, Red Castle and many Chinese and Turkish copies No Name

    They are usually

    smaller than any maternity pillows, . does not require the support of the entire body of an adult.

    There are now a huge number of brands and designs of specialized pillows. Let's look at the different options and evaluate their comfort, as well as list the factors that you need to pay attention to when choosing a pillow.

    Types and brands of special nursing pillows

    1. Non-ergonomic round pillows

    The cheapest and most common option is horseshoe-shaped round pillow.

    Variations possible - add to the pillow:

    • tie or Velcro at the back to fasten it around the mother's waist;
    • additional pillow for baby's head (puts on the pillow, so you can change sides)

    Pillows with these variations are better than pillows without them, but in any case, this design has only one advantage - the price. They are easy to manufacture and therefore cheap for buyers. However, the cons of are the same as for pregnancy pillows:

    • soft round surface that the baby rolls off;
    • lack of support for the mother's back and arms;
    • lack of a strong fastening around the waist, the pillow slips;
    • very often the cover of the cheapest pillows is not removable and you have to wash it together with the pillow.

    This pillow is better than nothing, but there are other, more comfortable and ergonomic options. The most famous brands of : Chicco, Boppy and many Chinese and Turkish copies No Name

    both. As a rule, they have a flat dense surface.

    Ergobaby pillow

    The pillow from a well-known manufacturer of ergo-backpacks has a semi-circular shape, a flat dense surface slightly at an angle to the mother. It provides comfort for the mother's hands and helps to position the baby high against the chest. The disadvantages of this pillow is that the baby needs to be supported (surface at an angle), there is no back support.

    Bebe Au Lait Pillow

    Has a dense, even surface on which it is convenient to place the child; belt fastening around the waist. It is quite high, has a small pocket for small things. The disadvantage of of this pillow is the lack of support for the mother's back.

    My Brest Friend Pillow and similar

    My Brest Friend Pillow was developed almost 20 years ago in the USA. It is rightfully considered the best pillow for nursing mothers, thanks to:

    • an even elastic surface, so that the baby does not roll down to the mother;
    • special back support mom;
    • tight around the waist on a carbine;
    • bumps on the cushion surface;
    • handy pocket for small items;
    • removable cover, easy to wash.

    This pillow not only lifts the baby to the breast, but also relieves tension from the mother's back, neck and arms, and also frees her hands for other things if the baby falls asleep at the breast. Unlike all other pillow options, the filler of this one is not holofiber or polystyrene foam balls, but foam.

    The My Brest Friend pillow has only one big drawback - the price. That is why several of its analogues are produced in Russia and the CIS, we will briefly talk about them.

    Pillow Milk Rivers

    The Russian brand of clothing and accessories for nursing has been producing pillows for several years. They have the same construction as My Brest Friend, but have a smooth surface without bulges and use one type of foam rubber, rather than two, like the original and other analogues. The used fabric of a cover - jersey. This is a good, inexpensive analogue of a well-known brand. It looks very simple, does not have packaging, the pillow itself may not be completely flat, but this is the cheapest option.

    Ergofeed pillow

    Pillow brand is a complete copy of My Brest Friend, pillows are made in Russia. The company appeared at the end of 2019, but after a couple of months the Internet was littered with a huge number of the same type of reviews (obviously fake), forum discussions and comments praising this pillow. This is a good product, but the business ethics of this company raises big questions. Therefore, we cannot recommend this brand for purchase.

    Loona Baby Pillow

    Pillow brand has the same pillow shape as My Brest Friend but has a few improvements: "Memory Foam" upper part of the pillow, microfiber plush for the cover, much better stitched cover, silent transparent fastener.

    Benefits of an ergonomic cushion

    In our store we offer several different types of nursing pillows, in different price categories, universal and specialized. But is the pillows of ergonomic design, with back support and a smooth elastic surface, which we consider the best and recommend for purchase.

    1. Back support: hard back means close to mum; it provides comfortable support and relieves back and neck pain. The breastfeeding woman does not get numb hands, neck and back. The child lies on a pillow at the level of the mother's chest - and rightly so. It does not matter what position you take (if you need to suck the breast from different sides) - in any position the baby will be held correctly.

    2. Smooth surface with "knolls": thanks to the even flat surface, the baby does not roll off the pillow, while the rounded edges of other pillows can cause the baby to roll and have to be constantly held and controlled. At the same time, soft bulges on the surface of support his head and your hand.

    3. "Memory Foam" filling: soft, but elastic surface of two-layer hypoallergenic PU foam ensures the correct position of the baby and its comfort, and also retains its shape, unlike all other fillers (styrofoam balls or holofiber).

    4. Removable cover made of the softest microfiber plush, easy to remove and machine wash. Minky plush is a soft, velvety material most commonly used for newborn blankets and bedding.

    5. Adjustable Silent Closure: easy to fasten with fastex, adjustable in length, suitable for any waist (45-115cm).
