I am a stomach sleeper, so pregnancy makes sleeping very difficult for me. I swore after my first pregnancy I would have to do something different as most nights I would end up on the couch after not being able to find a comfortable position. I bought this pillow 10 weeks into my second pregnancy and have slept in my bed every night! (I am now 20 weeks along). I usually don�t like sleeping on my side, but this pillow supports my back and stomach and I like to put it in between my legs. I am able to sleep through the night! It does get a little warm, as the fabric is kind of fuzzy, but it makes such a difference in helping me sleep that it�s not too big a deal to be a little warm. I also had to remove a little of the stuffing as it was too firm for my liking. I would also note that it is very large! I have a king size bed, so my husband still has plenty of room, but I�m not sure how much room there would be on a queen. I say it�s worth it, a girl needs her beauty sleep, no? We will have to see how well it helps me sleep as I get bigger, but so far I have no regrets. I would buy this pillow again!
I love this product. As my pregnant belly was growing bigger, the harder it became for me to sleep. I�m currently 5 1/2 months pregnant and bought this pillow a couple weeks ago. It has made all the difference in the world. Before, I could barely sleep at all and now I�m experiencing more comfortable rest. I switch which side I sleep on and sometimes use it to put my feet up while I sleep. I�m just really glad to have this pillow. I went from getting 5-6 hours of sleep a night to 9.
I seriously don�t know how I got along without this pillow. I bought it reluctantly late in my second trimester thinking it would not be worth the money I spent on it. Man, was I wrong!!! I had a very painful pregnancy with weak joints and severe pelvic misalignment. Using this pillow was the only way I got any sleep at all. It was also great for propping up on for those nauseous days. I still used this pillow postpartum too, and sometimes when I am nursing in place of a boppy. When I am not using it, my boyfriend sometimes borrows it because IT REALLY IS THAT COMFORTABLE! You won�t regret this purchase!
I bought this for my pregnant wife after a friend gave her a smaller C-shaped pregnancy pillow. WE LOVE THIS PILLOW. I steal this whenever I get the chance. The material is soft to touch and the pillow gives her the support she needs for a great night sleep. The pillow has not flattened and she has been using it every night for a few months now. I recommend this pillow to all my friends when their wife is pregnant! Happy wife happy life!
I am a man using this pillow, I love this pillow so much, I�ve been using this pillow for about three years. It has held up, I have never seen a pillow that held up better than this. Extremely strong material, does not stain easily. Very well put together, this is the pillow that I sleep on every night, it�s just the right stiffness and you have support if you want to lay on your side. Amazing. Just to clarify, I am a straight male., This pillow is definitely not only for females.
I am not pregnant, but I bought this to be used postoperatively. I was told I had to become a back sleeper for a while, so I bought this pillow along with a wedge pillow and it is so comfortable. I fold the bottoms under my knees and its perfect.
This pillow is a must when you're in your second and third trimester. I have been able to sleep comfortably thanks to this pillow. I wish I could take it everywhere with me! From sleeping to sitting down and reading, this provides great support to belly and back. Plus adding a pillow on top has helped me battle the not so fun heartburn. Super soft cover material and easily washable. The pillow is sturdy but also very comfortable. Has maintained it's shape for over 3 months.
Best pillow. Have had it for 3 months now. I don't know if I'll be able to go back to a normal pillow. I was worried might be hot, but as other reviews have mentioned that isn't an issue. Even though I'm a furnace and constantly hot during the day, when I'm in bed with the pillow I'm extremely comfortable. Helps to make sure I don't roll on my back at night, and allows me to lean comfortably back and front. I even took it when we did a baby moon, and so glad I did! With so much walking, it helped with the minor back aches caused by walking, and helped me take a nap during the day.
This pillow has significantly improved my sleep! I was tossing and turning a lot coming into my second trimester of pregnancy and I was having a difficult time sleeping at night. My body was getting bigger and it was difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep in. This pillow has changed it all! My husband told me that I knocked out within 60 seconds of settling into this pillow! I love that I can position the pillow so that one end tucks between my legs while the other side supports my back while I sleep. I sleep on my left side and slide my left arm under the pillow and I never wake up with a sore arm or shoulder. LOVE THIS PILLOW and I'll definitely be gifting this to my future pregnant friends!
I am obsessed! Soon as it came out of the package that kept it flat, it poofed right up. And the cover is so soft. You can fluff it up for more support and it�s very versatile. Recommend this to anyone!
I bought this pillow for my pregnant wife after reading tons of reviews on all different types of pillows. She'd been having difficulty sleeping and pain in her back and hips. She started using this pillow and immediately got a better nights sleep. She is 19 weeks pregnant now and has been using it for about 5 weeks. I will say though, we have a queen bed and it takes up more than half the bed. I'm OK with the sacrifice because she sleeps better.
I tried a smaller pregnancy body pillow and after 28 weeks I was incredibly uncomfortable. I ordered this pillow and it has made sleeping so much better. I don't have to rearrange everything when I turn over. My belly, back, neck, and legs are all supported. This pillow is wonderfully soft but has enough firmness to keep it's shape and keep me comfortable. I was worried that it would be too big for my husband and myself in our queen sized bed but it fits perfectly fine on "my side" of the bed. I would recommend it and buy it again if needed!
My entire first trimester I STRUGGLED getting a full 5 hours of sleep. I was so uncomfortable, always tossing and turning. By the time my second trimester hit I said no more. After some research, I went with this pillow. I didn't think a pillow could be this life-changing but man was I wrong! I'm now getting a full 8 hours a sleep (with a bathroom break here or there), but I'm finally comfortable and have the support I need. As a stomach sleeper, it's been hard to transition to my side, but this pillow allows me to stay on either of my sides all night. It's perfect for both stomach and back support and it's not so big that it overpowers or crowds the entire bed. I laugh now because in the middle of the night I find my husband cuddling with the side I'm not using! I may just have to buy him his own. Don't hesitate - this is seriously the best purchase ever.
Im 10 weeks and decided it was time I gave something a try. It wasn't that my belly was so big but more that I slept so much better with something behind my back. The first night I slept with this I got 10 hours of sleep, same the next night, then 12 the next. This was THE BEST PURCHASE. I haven't washed the case yet as there was no smell upon opening. It is so soft and I haven't noticed that the fill moves all that much. I recommend this!
I struggle with back pain from a work injury and this pillow helps so much. It can be used with your head on the cross part or by your ankles. I use a temperpedic pillow so I put the top/cross piece between my ankles. I can�t stand for my knees or ankles to rub at night. It helps with lower back support and is just plump enough to be comfortable without being too firm or to large to comfortably use without your neck or shoulders sitting at odd angles. My 4 year old stole it to use in her bed because it makes her feel �safe� because she won�t roll out of bed. She never has and has rails on her bed but it takes away a fear she has and she likes to snuggle in the i shape. We had to buy another one because she loved it so much too.
This pillow is by far the most amazing pillow I have ever used. Of all the products I have bought during my pregnancy to make myself more comfortable, this one takes the cake! I suffer from hormone related insomnia so sleeping has pretty much always been an issue for me, but with this pillow, I am so relaxed and comfortable that I've have been sleeping almost normally. I had a C-shaped body pillow before I found this one and only used it once because of how much I toss and turn at night. With the U-shaped pillow, I can turn over and don't have to worry about trying to flip the pillow with me. I honestly look forward to coming home and laying down now which has never been the case. I would recommend this pillow to anyone and everyone!
This pillow is the best thing I have ever purchased in my life! It�s so comfortable I feel like I�m sleeping in a cloud. It feels like I�m being cuddled on both sides. I�m 29 weeks pregnant at the moment and I have yet to be uncomfortable because of my belly. This pillow is a miracle. I can�t even lay on it without sleeping. I do, however have to buy more filling from the pillow losing a little firmness. Also in the picture it looks longer, but that doesn�t bother me. I will definitely be using this even after I�ve had my baby. I 100% recommend this buy. No regrets.
I am a young college student and not pregnant but I loved this pillow enough to write a review on it, which I rarely do. EXTREMELY COMFY with good support and the material stays cool pretty well. Imagine pushing an m&m onto a soft bed of frosting on a cupcake or pushing your feet down on the wet sand at the beach. As the frosting and sand engulf the m&m and feet, I write this review laying on the pregnancy pillow engulfed by its comfort. May take up a lot of bedspace but I'm small so it didn't matter much to me. If you do have small pets or young children I sometimes accidentally whack my dog with the arms which can be kind of heavy. Pregnant or not everyone should have one of these things.
I would let the pillow expand back to full shape when you open it. It may take a day as it was compressed for shipping. Almost 3 months along and I stopped being able to sleep. No position was comfortable. I got this pillow and I was able to sleep more than a couple of hours at time. The pillow is very comfortable to sleep on/in. I would highly recommend it for anyone that is having sleeping issues. I used a body pillow before I got pregnant and that wasn't enough, I needed a longer one on both sides of me.
I love my pillow. It could be a bit more supportive and have better shape in the head and neck area. But this pillow has helped so much with my pregnancy. I have had it for 5 months now. It is just starting to go semi-flat in the head area, but I am almost at the end of my pregnancy so it lasted fine. My only complaint is that the cover is super hard to take on and off for cleaning and it is very thin. Mine did not rip (Thank God), but I was scared it would when removing and replacing it. I am glad I purchased this specific pillow and I would buy the same one again.
Super comfortable and makes laying down while pregnant so much easier. It is very large and takes up about half of our queen sized bed and has a tendency to "eat" the blankets. Super easy to clean though and found it works well when sitting on a couch or in a recliner and you just need the lower back support. Cross the arms of the pillow into your lap and you can easily set a laptop or notebook on it without causing a strain on your body. Switching positions in the pillow can be a hassle sometimes depending on if youre under blankets or not but overall im extremely happy with the product! I will probably continue use after pregnancy.
I never write reviews. Like ever. But I did want to express my appreciation for this pillow. I was having really bad back pain in my pregnancy (I'm 28 weeks) and was using regular pillows to try and mimic this concept so I didn't have to throw down 50 bucks. But I finally decided enough was enough and tried out this pillow. I'm super happy with it, I think it has significantly improved my back issues. I do wish the head part of the pillow was a little comfier (synthetic is just no comparison to down pillows), but the firmness of the leg portion is on point. Anyway, I hope this helps some of you mamas out there who are having back issues and are on the fence on this pillow. It helped for me. :)
In trying to find a suitable alternative to my CPAP machine, I had a hunch this pillow could help. It keeps me comfortably on either side, and creates such a deep and restful sleep, that the danger is that I don't change position often enough, and wake up with a temporary stiff area. Realizing this, I make a mental note--before I hop into my nest--to turn to the other side a couple of times during the night. Interestingly enough, on this pillow, my mouth wants to stay closed, so I am even less likely to snore with an open mouth. I will soon take a sleep test with it, to make sure I don't have any sleep apnea while using it. My husband is thrilled that I am not snoring, as he is a light sleeper and was constantly asking me to turn on my side when I wasn't wearing the machine. I am hoping to not have to go back to the CPAP machine.
This pillow is AMAZING! I had the Leachco Snoogle pillow for my last pregnancy and hated it. The design is terrible and in a �C� shape that doesn�t support your belly when the long part is supporting your back. If you flip it and the long part is supporting your belly in the front, then there is a big gap where your back is and you have to put an extra pillow there. Anyway, I was so glad to find something else out there that actually worked and was comfy. The part where you lay your head is also not too fluffy/full (like the Leachco one) and won�t give you a neck ache. I am going to recommend this pillow to all my pregnant friends in the future. :)
This item shipped very fast. I ordered it and received in within about a week time which is fantastic cause I live overseas and most items take 2-4weeks to get delivered. It was packaged vacuum sealed and expanded once opened which I thought was cool.
I don't know how I would have managed this pregnancy without this darn pillow. It is the only thing that gets me comfortable in bed. I cannot sleep without it. Its absolutely wonderful and I have suggested this product to others and they are also in love with it. The material is super soft, not that jersey knit type of material so it doesn't make me hot. Its massive though so it does take up ALOT of space, but its so worth it :)
I love this pillow. I had back pain starting very early on in my pregnancy. My cousin just had a baby earlier in the year and said she wished she had gotten a maternity body pillow so I went ahead and got this one. This thing is great. You can move it around to best fit your needs which is nice because I sleep differently every night. I was a stomach sleeper before pregnancy so this was great to help me transition to side sleeping. I�ve only had it just over a month and it�s still just as good. I got white so I could bleach it. The cover is a bit hard to get back on, but it�s mainly because the zipper is short to not bug you in your sleep. I just have my hubby put it on :)
Love that I am able to lay down comfortably without hip or lower back pain. The cover is of microvelvet texture and is super soft and easy to clean. The pillow itself is firm but not overly firm and isn't too tall like you're hiking up your leg to piss. I will definitely buy another in the near future as a backup.
Have not been writing any reviews for a while but I really like this pillow. I was worried that it may be not fluffy or supportive. But it came in nicely. I have neck and back pain for many years and now I'm pregnant. Almost restless at night. But with this pillow, things get better. My neck pain went away. I still do have back pain but I can sleep for at least 2-3 hours before waking up and making turns.
I have really enjoyed this pillow throughout my pregnancy. I had originally purchased a pregnancy pillow that was more of a �J� shape, and it just did not work for me. I tend to toss and turn throughout the night, and with the �J� shaped pillow you have to move the pillow everytime you switch sides. With this pillow, it isn�t an issue! You are surrounded on both sides, so it makes changing positions a non-issue. My only complaint is that since you are completely surrounded, it tends to keep you pretty warm (sometimes a little too warm). I wake up (fairly often) a bit damp & sweaty around my neck/shoulders where the pillow just keeps you so warm. I have shoulder length hair, and I�ve found that keeping it in a ponytail overnight helps with this a bit. Overall I highly recommend this pillow! It really does make a huge difference, especially in those later months of pregnancy where it is sooo difficult to get comfortable.
This pillow is incredible. I am in my 5th month of pregnancy and even though my tummy isn't huge yet I was having a lot of trouble sleeping. I would toss and turn. My back and hips would hurt throughout the day, I would wake up with headaches, and always be exhausted (and cranky)! This pillow has changed all of that! No joke the first night I slept with this thing I got better sleep than I had in two months. I woke up feeling rested and ready for the day. My back and hips no longer hurt. I didn't wake up nearly as much at night and frankly I am just in a better mood overall because I finally got some sleep! I put off buying this pillow and now I wish I would have had it all the time!
I am NOT pregnant. I bought this pillow due to a recommendation of a SI joint issue. I call it the octopus because my husband and I both share the "arms" to prop up for tv. This has been great for not having to wrestle pillows all not. I can adjust the shape for the nights needs. I bought this on a lightening deal; worth every penny.
I bought this pillow when I found out I was pregnant and idk how I loved without it. It is soo comfortable, you feel as if you are being hugged by a fluffy teddy bear. I already had my baby and I still use it to help me breastfeed or nap with my baby. It has a cover so you can take it off and wash it and it�s easy to put back on. I definitely recommend this pillow.
I was very skeptical about buying a pillow just for my pregnancy and resisted for a long time, instead arranging several regular pillows around me every night. But when sleeping started getting more uncomfortable around six months I broke down and bought this based on all the great reviews, and it was the best decision I could have made!
I was 5 months pregnant when my boyfriend ordered this for me. At the time, my sciatica caused by the pregnancy was getting worse and my arms would also start to go numb after laying on my side for short periods of time. Let's just say that I was beginning to sleep very uncomfortable! This pillow has been an amazing addition and it helps support my growing belly. Since receiving the pillow and using it for about a month, I can say that my arm no longer goes numb when I sleep on my side, that is, only when I do put my arm underneath the pillow. It's very big and does take up half of our king sized bed but it's been an amazing addition for my pregnancy journey. I didn't get one my first pregnancy due to the cost and because at the time, I would rather the money go to baby clothes/items but it was a must this pregnancy! I recommend it & will definitely repurchase for a future pregnancy.
Haven�t had a backache for my whole pregnancy and started using this pillow around 18 weeks! Love that I can turn from one side to the other without having to readjust the pillow. It has enough support for my neck and head and does not need to be used with another pillow. I also like that I can prop one arm behind my back for extra support. Will probably be good for nursing as well. I have the jersey cover in blue and it was not too hard to take on and off to wash.
This just arrived and after giving it a few minutes to fluff up, this is already my favorite pillow and I�m wondering how I ever survived a pregnancy without it. So many options for sleep positions... soft to the touch, just the right firmness. Great shape. I love it. Only thing I could ask for is that they hide the zipper. It�s unsightly and feels uncomfortable if your arm or hand touches it. Otherwise great!
Back and neck pain has been 75% better with this. I am 37, 5'11', with arthritis and some deteriorating discs, brand new high end mattress wasn't completely cutting it, this has helped so much!
I absolutely love this product. It is so comfortable and really helped with my back pain that I started to experience during my 2nd trimester of pregnancy. It forms perfectly to my body and since purchasing this pillow I have been getting some really good sleep. This pillow is so nice that I have come in my room on numerous occasions and my 15-year old son was using it:) He asked me to order him one which I thought was cute as it is for pregnant women. Great pillow and I highly recommend it.
I use this pillow for reading at bed before falling asleep. I place the large section behind my head and then place the two �arms� next to me or sometimes across my middle to hold the book in place. When I�m ready to sleep, I actually turn the pillow upside down so that my head is on my own pillow while the �arms� snuggle against my back and stomach, since I�m a side sleeper. Very comfortable pillow and quite large! We have a Queen sized bed and it takes up my entire half of the bed - with me sandwiched in the middle of the cushions - which is fine with me. Couldn�t be happier with it.
This thing has been perfect for the last couple months so far. Comfortable in many positions. One or two positions can attribute to neck pain but this thing has been so great overall it still deserves 5 stars. only other con is the wife will enjoy cuddling this while you're on an island of your own haha. I've seriously considered buying one for myself! We'll see how much longer I can deal with just getting the "leg"/edge of the pillow to snuggle with.
This maternity pillow is the best, I've already tried out three other maternity pillows before this one and now I am getting rid of the other three because this one is amazing. It supports me where I need the support the most which is my head, shoulders, back and front. I was able to sleep through the night with little turning from side to side and when I woke up in the morning I felt well rested and had plenty of energy to get through the day. This pillow is sssooo comfortable that I definitely give it five stars and would recommend this product to other expectant mothers. I wish I would have seen this pillow first on amazon before I purchased the other pillows because I wasted money on the other ones. If you want to save money and get a good nights rest, then buy this pillow.
I am not pregnant, but I bought this pillow because I�m a side sleeper with hip and back pain. It has helped me to stabilize my spine while I sleep. It also helps me do things more comfortably in bed, like read, use my tablet, write, etc. because I can fold the legs over onto my lap. The only downside to this pillow is that the head part doesn�t offer enough support and I find myself needing an extra pillow, which ends up being too high for my neck and causing neck pain. My solution has been to not use the head part and reverse the pillow so that I only use the legs and then use my own pillow for my head. I definitely recommend this pillow for side sleepers.
Love this full body pregnancy pillow. I'm currently on my 29th week of pregnancy and have slept with this pillow every night since purchasing it. I normally sleep on my left side with the lower part of the pillow between my legs and the other side of the pillow supporting my back. And when I do feel like switching sides for a little while I just turn over and have the same comfort and support. I'm so glad I tried this pillow out!! Love this pillow and can't sleep without it!!
I sleep on my side and for months I was miserable. I have a firm foam mattress and thought about buying a new one but then I thought of this... I decided to give this a try and BAM jackpot! I sleep on my side and have support on both my back and legs... I love that it's just the right amount of firmness... The covers come out and are washable. It is perfect. I sleep better with this, my cool ocean nightlight and nature sounds in the background. My life is complete and I am not pregnant.
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my 88 year old Mother who has severe arthritis. She has used it every night since Dec. 25 & she said she loves it. It gives her good neck & head support plus her back. Since she is a widow & sleeps alone, she tends to get cold. But this pillow cradles her & keeps her warm also. She loves it! She wondered why I was giving her a "pregnancy" pillow!!! LOL! She had a good laugh but I explained how I had read that it might help her. She agrees now! I highly recommend this for other reasons besides "pregnancy"! Thank you!
