What to Look for in an Organic Nursing Pillow

The main things you’ll want to look for are:

  • Safe materials (like organic cotton, latex, wool, and kapok)
  • No toxic finishes (no “water-resistant” or “stain-resistant” PFAS!)
  • Personal preferences (size/shape, firmness, versatility, washability)

If you want to dive deeper into what to look for, we have a comprehensive guide to picking out your organic nursing pillow right here!

Do You Really Need a Nursing Pillow?

Are nursing pillows worth it? I lay out the potential benefits to help you decide. Plus, I’ll tell you what to look for in a non-toxic & organic nursing pillow.

Best Organic Pregnancy Pillow Brands for Maternity, Nursing, & Beyond

Okay, now that you know what you’re looking for, let’s get to it! Here are our favorite brands for safe and healthy body and nursing pillows for pregnancy and beyond:

1. Hiamom

organic pregnancy body pillow from hiamom

Hiamom’s two body pillows are made out of 100% wool for the stuffing and 100% cotton for the outer covers. (The covers come in several different colors, including cream, peach, and blue.

To source their natural materials, the Hiamom team works with local farmers and non-profit manufacturing facilities “to craft not only the best product but also to contribute back to the community.”

Their Full Body Pillow is meant to provide 6-pint support to help relieve stress and pain around the neck, arms, lower belly, pelvis, knees, and ankles.

You can definitely use either one for nursing, but the Bubble Puff™ Cuddle Pillow will work better since it’s smaller. The full-body one is just a lot of pillows to wrap around yourself!

My take: I’ve been using the Full Body Pillow for several months and it is comfy! 

The first thing I noticed was how soft the cover fabric is. The pillow is pretty firm, providing the support my body wants. But I like that you can unzip the inner pillow to customize the filling based on your liking. You can either take some of the wool out to make it more plush, add more to make it firmer, or even stuff it with a different material if you want to!

It’s really easy to clean, too. The cover zips right off, so I can throw that right in the washing machine with my other gentles. You could wash the fabric that the actual pillow is made out of too, but it’s not going to be quite as easy (because you’ll have to take the stuffing out).

You can definitely continue using either pillow after pregnancy as well, just as a normal body pillow. (I’m not actually pregnant or nursing; I’ve just been using it as a regular organic pillow at night!)

It’s made in the U.S.A., too!

organic body pillow for pregnancy from obasan

This organic pillow is the real deal for pregnant and nursing moms!

First of all, it was designed by osteopath and perinatal orthopedic therapist, Shauna Ironside. It comes with twin crescent-shaped full-body pillows, which are detachable so that you can use it in different ways throughout different phases of pregnancy (and beyond!).

The front pillow supports your arms, belly, pelvis, hips, and legs to ease pelvic girdle pain, SI joint pain, sciatica, and lower back pain. The back pillow offers support, and pain relief and can help prevent back sleeping, which is not recommended during pregnancy.

Then after baby comes, you can unzip it and use the two separate pillows as regular body pillows, for nursing, or whatever works for you!

What About Boppy?

Boppy is one of the most well-known brands for nursing pillows… So, do they use organic and/or non-toxic materials? Although Boppy does offer a few pillow covers made with GOTS-certified organic cotton, they do not offer any pillows made with natural or organic material on the inside. All of their pillows are filled with synthetic polyester, so I don’t recommend them.

Final Thoughts on Organic Nursing Pillows & Non-Toxic Pregnancy Pillows

In summary: when looking for an ideal breastfeeding pillow and/or a supportive pillow for pregnancy, you’ll want to avoid polyurethane foam and other harmful chemicals and instead choose one with natural materials such as cotton, wool, kapok, or organic buckwheat hulls. Consider the different shapes and sizes to decide what is most important to you based on space, budget, and preferences. (Or just put multiple pillows on your baby registry!)
