Nursing Pillow With a Buckle
Like many other baby products on the market, the concept of a breastfeeding pillow is rather simple—but the options seem to be endless. As you compare breastfeeding pillows, you may notice differences in design, material, functionality, and so on. And as you explore your options, you may wonder if a breastfeeding pillow with a buckle is the best choice for you. While it really comes down to preference, a breastfeeding pillow with a buckle can be more secure, and some (like Tushbaby) can be used for more than just feeding.
At Tushbaby, we design products to simplify life with a baby—plain and simple. With safety and functionality at the forefront of every design, you’re bound to love our best-selling hip seat carrier that features a feeding position and buckle too. Safe and secure, just how we like it.

Do nursing pillows come with a buckle?
Not all nursing pillows come with a buckle, but those that do can help keep your nursing pillow snapped securely or properly fitted. Breastfeeding pillows are intended to provide posture support for breastfeeding for both mom and baby, thus promoting a positive feeding experience for both. Here are just a few of the popular nursing support brands that come with a buckle:
- Tushbaby Carrier
- My Brest Friend Deluxe Nursing Pillow
- FridaMom Adjustable Nursing Pillow
With a little research, you’ll see that even with those few options listed above, they all have unique designs and can serve varying functions. But before you choose, let’s look at some of the benefits of a nursing pillow with a buckle before we dive into the specifics.
Benefits of a nursing pillow with buckle
As we’ve mentioned, there are many reasons (aside from personal preference) that parents seek a nursing pillow with a buckle. The benefits of a nursing pillow with a buckle include:
- Keeps the nursing pillow secure around the body: If a nursing pillow shifts around while you’re feeding, it can be incredibly disruptive for both baby and mom—and no one wants to disrupt a baby who is peacefully feeding. Trust us. A buckle can help keep the shape of a nursing pillow in its intended positioning with minimal movement.
- Allows the nursing pillow to be adjusted: For some nursing pillows with a buckle, there is also the capability to adjust the pillow to fit more snugly around your body. This helps keep the baby close to your body, avoiding the need to lean forward and cause added stress on your back and neck. Remember, with good breastfeeding posture, it’s best to bring your baby to your breast rather than reach forward to bring your breast to the baby. An adjustable nursing pillow also makes life easier for those with larger breasts or plus-size moms.
With the Tushbaby Carrier that features a feeding position, the benefits go beyond just those listed above. With the adjustable waistband buckled high and tight around the waist, mothers and caregivers can get back and upper body support, while the baby’s weight is evenly distributed across the wearer’s body. Plus, the ability to stand up and convert to baby-wearing in stride makes you almost unstoppable.
Who needs a nursing pillow with a buckle?
We’d argue that any parent can benefit from a nursing pillow with a buckle. If used for bottle feeding, an adjustable nursing pillow with a buckle can be a great way to get Dad or others involved in feeding time, which can be a much-welcomed break for mom. As we’ve mentioned, caregivers of all sizes can benefit from the ability to keep a nursing pillow secure and adjust the pillow to fit close to the body.
Is the nursing pillow buckle on the Tushbaby adjustable?
Yes! The Tushbaby was designed to fit parents and caregivers of many sizes. The Tushbaby alone fits 23-44 inch waists, meaning you can loosen it as needed or get it snug so it fits juuuuust right! The Tushbaby is intended to sit high and tight above your waist, providing you ample lumbar support. The adjustable waistband and buckle allow you to achieve that supportive fit to save your back whether you’re nursing, bottle feeding, or carrying your kid.
Can the buckle on a nursing pillow be extended?
The Tushbaby can be purchased with the addition of a Waistband Extender, making it a great nursing pillow for plus size moms when used in the feeding position. With the ability to use the Tushbaby in four carrying positions, plus-size moms and caregivers that might not fit in a traditional nursing pillow can also use their Tushbaby as a baby carrier once their baby can hold their head up on their own.
For larger parents or caregivers, finding a carrier or nursing pillow that fits comfortably can be frustrating, to say the least. While baby products on the market tend to focus on age and appropriate sizing for babies, they can lack size inclusion for parents who aren’t considered ‘average’ size.
At Tushbaby, we embrace that human bodies are all different shapes and sizes, which is why we’ve created a non-restrictive open carrier that can fit most caregivers and parents. Plus, we offer a Waistband Extender: with the Waistband Extender, you can add up to 23 inches around the waist for a total of 70 inches.
Aside from the ability to buckle your Tushbaby carrier and use it in the feeding position, the Tushbaby makes a great option for the parents that do it all. With five functional storage pockets, you can also store your nursing necessities at your side to be ready for anything. This can include burping rags, baby wipes, diapers, and even your portable Diaper Changing Pad.
Let’s face it, life with children is unpredictable. While you can’t anticipate when the next blowout will be or when your baby will spit up next, you CAN stay prepared for most everything with your Tushbaby at your side, stocked with some necessities. Take it one step further by enlisting ‘The Pod’ to keep a clean paci in arm’s reach; it’s a sleek and durable pouch that can strap on to just about anything, including your Tushbaby.
At Tushbaby, we know babies, and we are parents, so we’ve created an entire selection of best-selling parent-friendly products for caregivers just like us—and you.
