8 of the best breastfeeding and bottle feeding pillows for parents

Posted in Parenting Essentials.

Breastfeeding and bottle feeding pillows are kind of like your best buddy when you are snuggling up and tending to your bub.

They support your back, neck and arms while also keeping your baby comfortable and correctly attached. For babies with reflux, these pillows can make feeding easier by optimising their position. And if you’re breastfeeding, these sorts of pillows can stop ‘drag’ on the nipple and prevent your boobs from getting cracks and scrapes.

Here’s 8 of the best breastfeeding and bottle-feeding pillows for babies

What do parents say?

“Absolutely love this pillow! It’s super firm, the fabric is gorgeously soft and well stitched, and the curve is perfection! The slight angle means no more middle of the night burping is necessary… which means baby is right back to sleep and mama is happy!”
