Feeding sessions can be a wonderful bonding experience between you and your little one. Even with the most experienced moms, sometimes breastfeeding can be less than magical.

We've scoured the market to find the top nursing pillows that combine comfort for you, support for your little one, and a quality design that’s durable, versatile, and easy to care for (hello, washable covers!). From cushy all-rounders to space-saving travel picks, we’ve listed a range of pillows to help you find your perfect match!

Best Nursing Pillows of 2024 Nominees

Bbhugme Adjustable Nursing Pillow

Terrific versatility is the hallmark of the Bbhugme® Nursing Pillow, which supports a variety of nursing positions and preferences with its flexible shape and moldable microbead filling. You can adjust the pillow's firmness by tightening or loosening the end closures and use the adjustable ties to accommodate a range of body shapes. The outer cover is machine-washable, OEKO-TEX-certified cotton.

Blessed Nest Organic Nesting

A cult favorite, this large pillow boasts natural materials, from its GOTS-certified-organic cotton outer shell to its buckwheat-hull filling. The hulls move like bean-bag filling but lock into place for more stable positioning than foam. The crescent shape requires no straps or buckles for use and proves surprisingly versatile at positioning. Fans put it to work for everything from nursing support and tummy time to back support for Mom.

Boppy Luxe Nursing Support Pillow

If you prefer a softer version of Boppy’s popular nursing pillow, this one’s for you. Stuffed with plush polyester filling, the pillow offers solid ergonomic support. And since it requires no straps or buckles, the c-shape design is as easy to arrange one-handed as ever. The kicker? The washable outer shell now sports soft and cushy fabrics for better snuggle time with your baby. 

Boppy Original Nursing Pillow

A perennial favorite, Boppy’s original pillow comes in a variety of supercute prints (and you can buy extra slipcovers for funsies). It's also touted as one of the best options out there, offering firm support, no-fuss positioning, and an easily washable pillow and slipcover. The c-shape design allows cradling, a football hold, tummy time, and more, while a seam-free inner curve is easy on c-sections and postbirth tenderness.

DockATot La Maman Wedge Nursing Pillow

Want a stylish option you can leave lying around your house? The La Maman Wedge boasts a sleek design, beautiful fabric coverings, and a luxe tassel finish. Thanks to its firm filling, it can easily double as a back support or tummy time wedge, and a covered zipper ensures your comfort. The company has also gone the extra mile to achieve REACH-compliant chemical safety.

Ergobaby Natural Curve Nursing Pillow

Developed with lactation experts to be ergonomically sound and reduce rolling, this model from Ergobaby boasts an easy strap-on design with two sides for different positioning. It’s nicely portable, thanks to its smaller size, carry handle, and lightweight materials. The foam inner pillow offers firm support for Mom and baby, and the outer cover is easily machine washable. 

Frida Mom Adjustable Nursing Pillow

This structured nursing pillow offers firm support in a variety of positions and is a wizard at adjusting to your needs. Three removable layers allow you to tailor the pillow’s height for the perfect latch position. A back cushion attached to the waist strap offers moms extra lumbar support. The removable, machine-washable cover also includes pockets for nursing accessories, your cell phone, or even heating pads to alleviate pain.

Frida Mom Perfect Latch Nursing Pillow

Humble-Bee Nurse Sling Nursing Pillow

An option that shines in on-the-go situations, this model combines the advantages of a baby sling and a nursing pillow. Its extremely lightweight design and compact build make it an easy addition to your outings, and the whole pillow converts into a sling bag if you want. You can easily adjust the cushioned back strap to achieve the proper fit and positioning for you and your baby.

Medela My Sweet Dreams Nursing Pillow

While it’s not as compact as some models, this tube-shaped pillow offers moms maximum versatility since it easily flexes to support a variety of nursing positions. In fact, fans love to use it for all sorts of purposes—as a tummy-time wedge, a lumbar prop, or sleep support for expecting moms. The lightweight, hypoallergenic, machine-washable design makes this choice a great all-rounder.

Momcozy Adjustable Nursing Pillow

With its all-around cushion shelf, Momcozy’s pillow offers incredible support for your baby and your arms during feeding or cuddling sessions. At the cushion’s front, a small pillow keeps your little one from rolling and helps with head and neck support. The pillow straps onto you with an adjustable fit that plus-size moms rate highly. Other selling points? It comes in a variety of cute prints and boasts an affordable price.

My Brest Friend Original Nursing Pillow

A true classic prized for its firm foam structure, My Brest Friend’s original pillow comes in a wraparound cushion design that’s the perfect solution for moms experiencing back pain or arm/elbow discomfort during nursing. You can adjust the straps for the right fit and stash your nursing accessories in the pockets. The soft, cotton cover is removable, washable, and comes in a variety of cute prints.

My Brest Friend Twin & Plus Nursing Pillow

This variation on the original My Brest Friend pillow includes many of the same features, such as adjustable straps, accessory pockets, and all-around cushioning. In this model, the square-shaped pillow increases the amount of cushioning in order to accommodate twins. The design also incorporates a high backrest, which reviewers say provides some of the best lumbar support on the market.

Naturepedic Nursing Pillow

Parents who love natural products will love this model, which has earned MADE SAFE® certification. The fluffy pillow is filled with PLA batting made from non-GMO sugarcane and covered in GOTS-certified-organic cotton herringbone. On a practical note, moms appreciate the waterproof, machine washable cover and strapless, unfussy design. Although the price tag is a bit high, Naturepedic includes a one-year warranty.

Snuggle Me Organic Feeding Support Pillow

Another organic option that’s a bit more affordable, the Snuggle Me pillow sports an organic cotton slipcover and hypoallergenic, polyester fiber fill that includes no added chemicals or flame retardants. The washable, wraparound design is on the plusher side, with less bulk and no straps to make one-handed use easy. 

Twin Z Nursing Pillow

Recommended by reviewers for its great back support and easy-to-use, washable design, this pillow is a favorite of many moms with multiple kids. The foam-free, hypoallergenic cushioning provides the additional support and structure needed for tandem feeding. Plus, the versatile design works for nursing time, bonding time, tummy time, toddler use, and mom's rest time.
