Not content to rest on its laurels (the Boppy pillow was awarded the Baby’s Best Bet ten years in a row!), Boppy has designed a brand new Nursing Pillow. The new two-sided Boppy Nursing Pillow has two distinct surfaces to maximize comfort and grow with your nursing baby.

Features of the NEW Two-Sided Boppy Nursing Pillow

  • Designed with a lactation consultant specifically for nursing
  • Two surfaces – one firm, one soft to offer mom options to use what works best for her and baby
  • Adjustable belt keeps pillow securely in place
  • Fits most waists
  • Easily cleaned – wipeable foam insert and machine washable pillow

New Boppy Nursing Pillow Review

We’ve owned a Boppy pillow since my first son was born – that’s six years, if you’re keeping track – so we were excited to get our hands on the newest version of this must-have baby product. It’s not exaggerating to say that the newest member of the Boppy family is dramatically different from the pillow we first used years ago. The new pillow, developed with a Lactation Consultant, maintains the C shape we’re familiar with and has an eye-pleasing design, but that’s where the similarities end.

The new pillow has two distinct surfaces. The firm side is created by a removable foam insert and covered in minky fabric. The insert has a raised edge that creates a contoured surface and is ideal for use with infants. The soft side is much more cushioned (even more than the original Boppy pillow) and helps maintain a comfortable nursing position as baby grows.

Another new feature is a belt that goes around mom’s back to help keep the pillow in place against your body. We aren’t as keen on this feature but can see how it might help some moms maintain a good nursing position. If you don’t like the belt, you can easily remove it.

The entire pillow is washable – a  must have for a baby feeding product! Remove the firm-side foam insert and the belt and toss it in the washing machine.

Which Boppy is Right for You?

The Boppy family now includes three distinct nursing pillows: the Original Boppy Pillow, the Boppy Travel Pillow and the New Boppy Nursing Pillow. This graphic is helpful to compare and figure which Boppy is right for you.

New Boppy Nursing Pillow vs. Original Boppy Pillow

The new Boppy Nursing Pillow is thicker than the Original Pillow and really looks quite different. Here’s a side by side photo of the two so you can get an idea of the new size.

To Buy or Not to Buy

To Buy… We think the new Boppy offers improvements we didn’t even realize the pillow needed. We love the firm-side and foam insert to help position smaller infants and babies. Remove the foam inset, and the Boppy Nursing Pillow will grow with you and baby as your nursing position changes.

Or Not to Buy… Breastfeeding purists may say this product doesn’t do anything to help achieve the correct latch – and, indeed, no product will. But, as far as we’re concerned, anything that helps mom and baby find comfort while nursing deserves a thumb’s up and we know lots of moms (including us!) like the support offered by this nursing pillow.

Shop! The new Boppy Nursing Pillow is available in two fabrics for $49.99 at Babies R Us, Target and our affiliate Amazon.

    I love the original boopy, I think the new one design would be even better because of the 2 different sides!

    I’m entering this while nursing my 7wk old on the old school boppy. =) I think the dual levels of cushioning is a great idea- I wish my pillow was firmer for the newborn stage.

    I like that they made a pillow specifically for breastfeeding. The contoured firmer side is especially nice. My sister got the infant wedge for her traditional style boppy pillow, but it had to repositioned every time as it slid around (it did get repurposed and used by itself when she nursed on her side in bed).

    I like the two different sides and the strap. I wasn’t able to nurse my son (no milk supply and a lousy nursing pillow too) — maybe it will be different when we have a second!
