Feeding your baby is a daily occurrence —rather, can occur 8 to 12 times a day. The effort put into feeding can lead to strain on your shoulders, neck, wrist, and back. While breast-feeding or bottle-feeding, comfort and efficiency is a top priority, which makes a nursing pillow a must-have tool. This list curates multiuse products for all types of parents and babies.
Boppy Classic: $40
Many parents swear by this nursing pillow for its unending support while breast-feeding. Best of all, it grows with your baby because the C-shaped pillow is great for propping, tummy time, and sitting!
My Brest Friend: $41.95
My Brest Friend has back support that encourages better posture and less discomfort. The firm pillow stays in place once you strap in, which means your baby won’t roll into the crevice between your stomach and pillow.
Blessed Nest Organic Nesting Pillow: $98
The Blessed Nest is completely organic so you won’t have to worry about your baby coming in contact with new over processed materials. The cotton canvas cover is filled with buckwheat hulls, making it extremely moldable.
Leachco Cuddle-U Nursing Pillow: $34.57
The Leachco Cuddle-U is designed to keep wiggly ones in place! Of course, the U-shaped pillow is great for feedings and gives that much-needed support. However, the seat wrap allows you to tuck your baby into the pillow while lounging, so you feel more confident!
Daddy-O Pillow $45.99
Daddy-O was created for fathers. When it is their turn to bottle-feed, the classic nursing pillows do not always fit comfortably. This company set out to solve that problem by making a foam pillow that lays flat across a larger lap with a slight elevation built in at one end.
Nook Sleep Niche Organic Nursing Pillow: $119
The Nook Sleep Niche follows a more classic-shaped nursing pillow but is completely organic as well. It is made of organic cotton and filled with organic kapok. Plus it grows with your baby, since the pillow can be used for lounging, tummy time, and sitting support.
Twin Z Pillow: $99.99
The Twin Z was designed for twins, which means it is a must-have if you have twins on the way and want to do double breastfeeding. It is a large pillow, but it comes with straps to tighten the spaces for smaller babies.
Lansinoh Nursie Breastfeeding Pillow: $22.49
The Lansinoh Nursie is designed as an arm cuff that sits on the side rather than a pillow that sits across your body. If you had a C-section done, the Lansinoh avoids your stomach but still provides enough support for your baby.
Luna Lullaby Nursing Pillow: $59.95
The Luna Lullaby is a large, V-shaped pillow. This unique design makes the Luna Lullaby great for plus-sized moms, but works for moms of any size or even twins! If you are a small mom it can double as a pregnancy pillow.
Infantino Elvate Adjustable Nursing Pillow: $39.99
The Infantino Elevate is a unique nursing pillow that lets parents pick the best height for feedings. If you are a tall mom you can add an extra layer, because there are three elevation levels.
