  • Breastfeeding pillow basics

    What you need to know

    A breastfeeding pillow can be an essential tool for your nursing journey. It can be a challenge to help your baby latch on and to find the best position for breastfeeding, especially in the beginning. Pillows can help by positioning your baby higher and closer to your breasts. When neither of you are struggling to get into place, it becomes much easier to focus on the task at hand: feeding and bonding.

    A nursing pillow can help you avoid straining your arms, back, and neck when breastfeeding, especially during those extra-long nursing sessions or the repetitive cycle of cluster feedings. And, once your baby is comfortable and securely situated, he may latch more easily and eat longer. A pillow can also lessen your baby's reflux or GERD by elevating her during feedings.

    While nursing pillows may seem similar at first glance, there are distinct differences among various brands. Weight, size, firmness, and portability are all factors to consider when choosing the right pillow for you.

    As far as shape, some pillows will encircle your waist entirely, U-shaped pillows will hug the front of your body, and arm pillows wrap around your arm. Some pillows are easier to tote around than others. Size and weight vary, so if you plan to travel with your breastfeeding pillow take that into consideration.

    Some pillows are washable or have washable covers. And some have extra features like storage pockets and latches.

    Some breastfeeding pillows work equally well for bottle feeding. And some breastfeeding pillows are multipurpose: They can be used just as easily for propping babies up on the floor, supporting babies during tummy time, and helping babies to balance while sitting up.

  • Boppy Original Nursing Pillow

    Our site Parents' Pick

    If the Boppy is a nursing pillow that does it all, the My Brest Friend is a nursing pillow that does one thing very well. It's very supportive for breastfeeding moms, with a unique design that wraps entirely around the waist and securely latches in place. The backrest helps to promote good posture while nursing, preventing neck and shoulder strain. The pillow is essentially a firm, flat shelf that keeps your baby in place, and it has a handy side pocket for storage.

    Heads up

    The cover is a snug fit to begin with, so be sure to let it air dry after washings to prevent shrinkage.

    Parents say

    "When it comes to nursing, I prefer My Brest Friend, hands down! Other pillows never fit quite right around me, especially in the early days with a large postpartum belly."

    "The My Brest Friend pillow is like a soft shelf. You can have it strapped to you and walk around to grab something without having to readjust, which I find especially helpful."

    "I like that it's so much firmer and sturdier, plus it straps right onto your waist. The strap gave me confidence that my baby was safe while I was nursing."

    Specs

    • Wraparound design adjusts to fit most people and can latch in the back
    • Specialized back support to encourage good posture
    • 100 percent cotton with a washable cover
    • Side pocket to store mom and baby items

    Available at Amazon starting at $39.79

  • Brolex Stretchy Nursing Pillow Covers

    Our site Parents' Pick

    These aren't nursing pillows but covers that will transform your nursing pillow into a soft haven for your baby. The soft, stretchy fabric is a perfect fit for most conventional nursing pillows, and the vibrant colors and designs are an added perk. These covers come in a two-pack and are machine washable to withstand any mess.

    Heads up

    These covers don't come with the pillow insert. Confirm that these will fit your pillow before ordering.

    Parents say

    "I bought a set of these covers for my nursing pillow. They make cleanups so easy, and they're thick enough that when my son had a blowout while nursing the contents didn't leak through to the actual pillow insert itself. Also, the material is so soft and comfy, I absolutely love it."

    "These were some of the most affordable covers I could find, and I love their texture. My baby spits up often, and they're easy to clean. This is well worth the money. Plus, there's two in the pack!"

    Specs

    • Two-pack nursing pillow covers
    • Ultra-soft jersey knit
    • Machine washable
    • Multiple designs to choose from

    Available at Amazon starting at $10.39

  • My Brest Friend Deluxe Nursing Pillow

    Our site Parents' Pick

    The My Brest Friend Deluxe has all the same, supportive features as the brand's original version, plus some additional benefits. The cover is made of extra-plush fabric and the pillow has a strap that combines Velcro and a silent-release buckle for easy on and offs that won't wake a sleeping baby. The pillow is adjustable and supports babies up to 20 pounds.

    Heads up

    Some moms say that things get stuck to the Velcro and they prefer the original Brest Friend, which doesn't have it.

    Parents say

    "The My Brest Friend Deluxe helped me hold the baby more easily in a comfortable position, and it's really plush and soft."

    "I have the Deluxe. You can use the Velcro to make it the correct size for you. I needed it bigger right after I had my baby, and now I need it smaller, so I adjusted the Velcro. Simple."

    "I'm plus-size, and it worked great for me. I literally used it every day, even until my baby was past 6 months old. The Deluxe is really plush and soft."

    Specs

    • Strap has Velcro and a silent-release buckle
    • 100 percent polyester cover is removable and machine-washable

    Available at Amazon starting at $38.95

  • Infantino Elevate Adjustable Nursing Pillow

    Our site Parents' Pick

    As you can see, this is not the typical nursing pillow. The Infantino Elevate is a layered pillow that raises your baby with three elevation levels, making it easier to try different breastfeeding positions. The pillow can be folded up for storage or travel, and it's machine washable.

    Heads up

    Some moms say the fabric isn't soft enough and irritated their baby's skin (or theirs).

    Parents say

    "Finally someone came up with a functional breastfeeding pillow! I love that it has many levels depending on how I'm sitting or lying. A newborn body fits perfectly across the pillow. It's easy for me to do work while I'm feeding my baby because there's a small barrier that prevents her from slipping off. I also love that it folds up and ties. I definitely recommend it!"

    "This pillow is absolutely perfect for me. I'm 6 foot 2 and I don't have a big chest. I needed something that would help raise my little one high enough so that I wasn't slumping over to nurse. Regular nursing pillows just aren't thick enough for my body type."

    "I have a preemie and this has been a lifesaver. I almost gave up breastfeeding, but now, because she's comfortable – and so am I – she's nursing like a champ and taking bottles comfortably. She's gaining weight! Yay to this pillow!"

    Specs

    • Three elevation levels to complement a variety of holds
    • Machine washable
    • Folds for storage and travel

    Available at Amazon starting at $38.93

  • The Nesting Pillow

    Our site Editors' Choice

    What makes the Nesting Pillow unique is that it's not filled with the usual pillow insert but with organic buckwheat hulls that conform to your baby's body. This makes it stable and flexible. You can use the Nesting Pillow for nursing or tummy time. The organic covers have simple, beautiful designs and are machine washable.

    Heads up

    This pillow is relatively heavy (6 pounds), and is the most expensive one on our list.

    Editors say

    "It's like having multiple pillows in one because you can shape and mold it to your needs. It's organic, nonallergenic, handmade in the USA, and even ships in recycled packaging. This pillow isn't just for babies, it's great for moms – and anyone – from pregnancy to beyond."

    Specs

    • Filled with organic buckwheat hulls
    • 100 percent organic and nonallergenic
    • Cover is machine washable, inside pillow can be spot-cleaned and sanitized in a dryer

    Available at Amazon starting at $94

  • Lansinoh Nursie Nursing Pillow

    Our site Editors' Choice

    A unique design, the Lansinoh Nursie slides around your arm rather than your waist. It fits everyone, and because it doesn't go near your middle, it may be especially helpful if you're recovering from a c-section. The exterior is made of cotton, and the inside liner is silky soft. The pillow is strong enough to cushion your baby's head and relieve pressure on your arms. It's also lightweight and portable.

    Heads up

    This pillow is machine washable. However, you have to wait until it's dry before you can use it again, and it can only be air dried. So you may be waiting a while for it!

    Editors say

    "This pillow design is completely different from traditional nursing pillows, and that's what makes it great. It's lightweight and portable, perfect for travel, and tends to work even better the bigger your baby gets. Some babies quickly outgrow nursing pillows, but because this is intended for the head and not the entire body, you can use it longer."

    Specs

    • Compact and portable
    • Cotton cover, soft inside liner
    • Machine washable

    Available at Amazon starting at $21.99
