Boppy Pillow Reviews and Giveaway!

As a mama of two boys, I’ve bought and tried so many different types of baby products, toys, and gear. By the time our second little man was born, I felt like I had a good handle on what worked for us and what didn’t.

One of my favorite things to use as a first time mama was the Boppy Pillow, hands down! We actually had three of them that we bought or received from friends: one to keep in B’s nursery, one in the living room and one in the car for travel. It was so much easier to have more than one instead of carrying it from room to room because I used it eight or more times a day for feeding and for play.

As a nursing mama, I feel the Boppy has some added benefits, but this versatile pillow is great for mamas that formula feed their little ones too.

The Boppy Pillow Company was kind enough to contribute three different pillows for Mama Say What?! to review and also to giveaway to three lucky readers! I have been using all three pillows since my younger son, K was born and there are definite highlights and benefits to each pillow.

Boppy® Feeding and Infant Support Pillow

This is the “original” Boppy Pillow and the one that we used the most often when B was born (all three that we had were this original kind). We’ve used it almost daily with K too.

Some of the highlights of this one are:
• It’s great for tummy time, even if your little one is only a couple of days old.
• It provides good support for nursing so that a mama doesn’t strain her back by hunching over, especially as the little ones get heavier to hold. You can also lay your kiddo in this pillow when you bottle feed.
• Though we’re not there yet with K, this pillow is also great for kiddos that are ready to start sitting up on their own. It can be used all throughout your little one’s first year. 

Boppy® Nursing Pillow (NEW!)

This is Boppy’s newest pillow and it’s designed with the help of a lactation consultant to be specifically for nursing mamas. I use it often in K’s nursery, especially during middle-of-the-night feedings when my eyes and arms are tired!

Some highlights of this pillow are:
• The adjustable belt that you can fit around your waist for a more secure position while nursing. I’ve used this a few times and it’s convenient if you need to walk around or get up and get something while nursing. I still make sure I always hold on to K, though, even if I’m using the buckle.
• There are two sides to choose from – one firm side and one soft. You can use whichever side is most comfortable for you. The firm side is very comfortable, but offers more support than the soft side.

Boppy® Travel Pillow

This Boppy is new to me and I love it! It’s designed for “mamas on the go” and is the perfect pillow to take with you in the car, on vacation, while doing errands, or visiting relatives. It’s a smaller version of the original Boppy, though not much smaller, and it’s much easier to carry around than the original.

The only problem I had with this pillow was that it was a little difficult to zip up when I wanted to carry the included tote with me. It took me two hands and some muscle!

Some highlights of this pillow are:
• It zips into a cute black bag with a shoulder strap that makes it look like a regular purse or tote. You’d never know (and neither would other people) that you were carrying around a Boppy!
• The Boppy folds out from the cover, but doesn’t separate, so you’ll never lose the bag part of it.
• There is a zipper for storage of smaller items, like a burp cloth, pacifier, diaper or change of clothes.

All of the Boppy pillows have the added benefit of having a removable, machine washable cover. As mamas know too well, diaper blowouts and spit up happen often with little ones, so this is an important feature to have. All of the Boppy pillows are also super soft and comfortable, both for mama and baby.

Our giveaway has ended - thank you so much to all who entered! Jessica K, Crystal M and Samantha S have been chosen to receive a new Boppy pillow! Our winners will be contacted via email.

  1. I would love the original Boppy. I have a mombo that I love, but remembering to bring it everywhere can be a pain. It would be awesome to have another nursing pillow around!

  2. Having read your review I’m looking for ways to increase my comfort while trying to feed the little girl I’m expecting in August. I’d be interested in either the original Boppy, or the nursing pillow.

  3. I would love to win the Boppy nursing pillow!

  4. I loved my Original Boppy pillow when my son was a newborn. After having read about all three pillows, I think I’d like one of the travel pillows for the next baby. I love the way it zips into a bag for easy travel. Thanks Mary Ellen!

  5. I LOVE my Boppy. I am a c-section Mama and I don’t know what I would have done during the healing process without it and a 10lb baby! It’s helped with nursing, with letting him chill on the floor and watch tv, got him to finally like tummy time, was a soft surface behind him while he was learning to sit up [in case he fell back], and so much more. The only time I can clip his nails is when he’s nursing, so it frees up the hand I would otherwise use to hold him. I can’t say how much I love the Boppy. I’d LOVE a travel pillow, it would make it so much easier than having his big sister cart it on top of her stuff around when we travel!

  6. I would love to win the original boppy - the monkey pattern is so cute! It would be interesting to try the travel boppy too though.
