Our Story

The Story of the Little Pillow that Created a Mighty Brand

It all began when a mom-inventor 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 Original Boppy® Pillow was born!

Nearly three decades later, the Boppy® Feeding and Infant Support 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.

Encouraged by happy moms, dads and babies, we have expanded our family to include prenatal and postnatal support 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.
