If you are an expecting mother or a breastfeeding mother and you’re looking for a suitable nursing pillow, look no further as we have compiled 5 of the best to fit your needs.
- Chicco Boppy Nursing Pillow
Chicco Boppy’s nursing pillows are made with a great ergonomic shape to ensure the right amount of support is given to the baby’s head during breastfeeding. It has a 4-in-1 function where it can be used for feeding, propping, tummy time and even sitting. This saves you the need to get various different things to aid the baby safely.

The Chicco Boppy nursing pillow comes in 12 different designs with its size being 47cm x 40cm x 14cm. You can purchase a pillow of your own at one of their official stores across Malaysia or on Lazada.

- My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow
A smart pun that makes them stand out, My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow is an innovatively designed wrap-around pillow with adjustable straps that gives the mother proper and stable back support during breastfeeding.

What makes this pillow unique is that it has compartments on the outside where you can easily store the milk bottle as you gently adjust your baby to be comfortable on the pillow.
With this pillow, you can easily remove the covers to give it a good wash, ensuring the pillow stays clean and the sponge and shape of the pillow is not compromised. You can purchase one of the 9 designs that they have on both Shopee and Mothercare Malaysia
