Our Analysis

The new Boppy Nursing Pillow is our favorite nursing pillow. We consider it a must-have item for the early days of any nursing mom and baby duo. The Boppy is free of flame retardants (needless exposure of baby to flame retardants is a health concern for us). We double checked with Boppy just to make sure and, indeed, the Boppy Nursing Pillow (as well as all of their pillows) is absent of any flame retardant in the foam insert, representing the firm side. The softer side is made of 100% polyfill. We were also reassured by Boppy that the Nursing Pillow does not contain chemicals.
