Our Analysis and Test Results
Luna Lullaby uses their parenting and medical experiences combined with knowledge from baby soothing experts to create their nursing pillows. The company's goal is to help create confident parents, so parents can soothe, comfort and nurture their own babies.
Luna Lullaby provides the most arm support out of the options we reviewed. It fits larger women well unlike circle designs, and we think it would be a potential contender for nursing twins. Some smaller testers had a difficult time with this Luna as it can feel like "too much" pillow for petite users. Also, the pillow lost support as the baby grew and became more active during feeding slipping away from mom's body and requiring constant adjustments.
Ease of Use
Like the comma-shape of some competitors, this pillow can be put in place and removed in a matter of seconds because it doesn't wrap around the sides of the body. However, this shape impacts where you can comfortably feed because the sides are so long that they often push into the backs of chairs or couches or don't fit at all.
The Luna Lullaby is very plush for the baby and mom and comes with the softest cover. The cover material is perfect for cool weather nursing thanks to the synthetic fibers that almost create a fleece feel. The pillow is nicely put together for years of use through multiple children.
Ease of Cleaning
The Luna Lullaby can be challenging to clean, and it didn't perform as well as the competition in this metric. The shell repels liquid moderately but if left unattended on the shell it takes at least five minutes to fully dry, and this can make for some wet feedings.
Also, only the cover is machine washable, and the cover must be laid flat to dry. After cleaning and drying the pillow took almost 5 minutes to get back into the cover and shaped correctly. Therefore, the entire cleaning process and getting the pillow ready for use took nearly 5 hours which is an excessive amount of time for a product that you need to use every 3-4 hours.
