The Skinny

The Luna Lullaby Lil Something is a perfect solution for a compact, travel-friendly nursing pillow. The cover is super soft, with a fleece-like material, that mom and baby alike will enjoy snuggling into. The L-shape design makes it a good choice for moms (and dads) of different shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, this option can be a bit too soft for younger infants, as they tend to roll towards mom. As the baby grows and gains more head and neck control, this issue resolves itself but the first few months can be a struggle. It is also on the small side and may not meet the needs of some users for an everyday pillow. Overall, this is an affordable and comfortable choice you can use after your nursing days are over.

Nursing Comfort


The Lil Something has soft, minky material that is comfortable against the skin and a nice compact shape that makes it easy to nurse in chairs, beds, and almost anywhere. However, the pillow is so soft that feeding younger infants can be an issue. The soft nature of the pillow can result in babies rolling into you. This issue can create a need for multiple repositionings during a single feed. This issue usually gets better as the baby gets older and has more head and neck control.

Ease of Use


The compact L-shape design makes the Lil Something more compatible for parents with different shaped bodies, compared to the Luna Lullaby Bosom Baby. The sides of the Bosom Baby extend so far that it can be cumbersome instead fo comfortable. This problem is avoided with the Lil Something thanks to a lightweight, effective design. The smaller size makes it perfect for nursing in a variety of chairs and to bring along on outings, as it can easily fit in the bottom of your stroller or keep in the back of the car. It is also perfect for tummy time, or as a comfortable pillow to rest your head in the car.

The plush cover of the Luna Lullaby Lil Something is so cozy you may want to snuggle with it  even when you are finished nursing.

Materials Used


The cover on the Lil Something is a super soft synthetic material that almost feels fleece-like. It's cozy against mom and baby's skin, but the downside is the material can get hot and make everyone a bit sweaty if you utilize it in warmer weather.

With no hardware to deal with  the cover of the Luna Lullaby Lil Something has an extra fold that opens easily when it needs to be washed.

Ease of Cleaning


Removing the cover of the Lil Something is easy with no zippers or fasteners. The cover folds over itself, making it simple to open and slip the pillow out. The cover is machine washable, but the pillow itself is not, so you'll want to remove the cover as quickly as possible after any mess to avoid it hitting the pillow. The cover needs to be line dried which is a bummer and means you'll need to use the pillow without the cover if your little one needs to feed while the cover dries. Once the cover is dry, it only takes a minute to reassemble.

Other Versions


Also included in our review, is the Luna Lullaby Bosom Baby. Depending on your needs or goals, this larger pillow could be a better choice for everyday feedings in your home.
