Our Story

The Story of the Little Pillow that Created a Mighty Brand

It all began when a mom-inventor named Susan received a request from her daughter’s daycare. The daycare asked parents to make pillows that could support babies when they were not being held. After a few prototypes, the Boppy® Pillow was born!

In 1989, The Boppy Company established the feeding and infant support pillow product category with the Boppy® Pillow. One mom told another and she told another and so on and so on. Decades later, the Boppy® Pillow is still supporting moms, dads, grandparents and babies.

The Boppy® Pillow has become the essential must-have item for every mom because of its comfort and versatility. As a leader in the industry, this mighty brand has gained mom’s trust and confidence (and this is no small task). The connection that moms have with the Boppy brand is unparalleled. It’s no wonder why moms tell us the Boppy® Pillow is the one baby product they just couldn’t live without.

Encouraged by our happy moms and babies, we have expanded our family to include prenatal and postnatal support, clothing, toys and travel accessories. Stay tuned as we continue to support mom in her new stage of life.

We are: Makers. Dreamers. Inventors. Comfort Enthusiasts. Supporters of all Moms & Dads. Baby Lovers. We are just like you.
