Can I let my baby sleep on the Boppy Newborn Lounger?
The Boppy Pillows and Boppy Newborn Loungers are products that should only be enjoyed for awake time only. The reason we stress the importance of this is to prevent positional asphyxia. This will help keep baby’s airway open at all times. For proper breathing when using the pillow for propping, do not allow baby to be curled up in the center of the pillow area or be propped up too high on the pillow. The Newborn Lounger is designed as a safe place to put Baby while he or she is supervised. The angle of the Newborn Lounger provides Baby with a view of the world from a slightly elevated position, rather than lying flat. Babies are full of surprises and if sleeping on the Newborn Lounger, might scrunch down, roll over, or roll off. The Newborn Lounger is great for times when parents need both hands free and makes for a great spot to snap some cute photos!
The Boppy Company strictly adheres to the guidelines set forth by The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the CPSC and several other organizations regarding these safe sleep points:
Place your baby on a firm sleep surface, such as on a safety-approved crib mattress, covered by a fitted sheet.
Never place your baby to sleep on pillows, quilts, sheepskins, or other soft surfaces.
Do not use in crib, cradle, bassinet, playpen, play yard or bed. Do not leave baby unattended – adult supervision is required. Improper use of this product could result in serious injury or death. Check out our Safe Sleep page under Product Info for more information.

How do I clean my Boppy® Pillow?
Most Boppy products are machine washable and dryable. Wash your Boppy Pillow in cold water on the delicate cycle by itself. Dry your Boppy Pillow on low heat. We also recommend throwing a sneaker or tennis ball (wrapped in a pillow case) in the dryer to help the Boppy Pillow keep its shape.

The washing instructions are located on the long silky tag.
For best results use a front load washing machines use Hand Wash Cycles. For top load machine wash, Delicate Cycle, 30°C/85°F. Tumble dry low on delicate cycle 30°C/85°F. While drying pillow throw in a clean tennis ball (three is best) which will beat and separate the clumps of fiber filling which may form in washing. Do not iron. Do not dry clean. For quick clean up, may be wiped clean.

Does the Boppy® Feeding and Infant Support pillow contain flame retardants?
We take great care in the quality of our products. The fabric and filling in the Boppy® Feeding and Infant Support pillow (and slipcovers for those pillows) are exempt from California Bureau of Home Furnishings flammability standards and have never contained harmful flame retardant chemicals.
The Boppy® Pillow is filled with virgin polyester fiberfill and is upholstered in white fabric that is 90% polyester and 10% cotton. What the Boppy Pillow wears on the outside is up to you! Its wardrobe consists of slipcovers made from soft cotton blends, to minky plush or organic cotton.
NOTE: You may see a tag on Boppy Feeding & Infant Support Pillows and Boppy Slipcovers stating that this product meets the “flammability requirements of California Bureau of Home Furnishing Technical Bulletin 117. Care should be exercised near open flame or with burning cigarettes.” As we noted previously, we meet these requirements WITHOUT the use of flame retardants. The note on this tag does NOT necessarily mean flame retardant chemicals have been added to the product.
Do you have a Boppy® Twins Pillow?
At this time, we don’t offer a Boppy® Feeding and Infant Support Pillow specifically for twins. The Boppy® Pillow may be used to feed both newborn babies at once in the ‘football hold’ until they outgrow it. In addition, the Boppy® Pillow provides versatility beyond nursing and feeding. The pillow can be used for feeding, propping, tummy time and sitting.
The Boppy® Newborn Lounger is also a helpful pillow for parents of multiples, providing the perfect nest for baby!

Are there different sizes Boppy® Baby Carriers?
What is the weight limit for Boppy® Baby Carriers?
Should I carry my child facing in or facing out?
Front Facing- In: Ideal for newborns of at least 8lbs (3.5kg) up to babies of 35 lbs. (15 kg). Ensure the head support is folded up if your baby cannot hold up his head on his own. Adjust the fabric to fully support your baby’s thighs in “M” position. Your baby should be in the front facing-in position until 6 months of age.
Front Facing-Out: Your baby should be at least 6 months of age. Face-out should only be used if your baby can hold his head up on his own. Be aware and listen to your baby’s cues in case they become overstimulated or tired. One way to be proactive in this regard is to limit the time your baby spends in the forward facing-out position. When wearing your baby front facing-out, be sure the integrated head support is folded and snapped down to ensure your baby’s nose and mouth are free from obstructions.
