Mothercare Sleep Body Pillow
Advantages: Comfortable, good quality
Disadvantages: High price tag and quite bulky making it difficult to change position
Pregnancy is one of the most rewarding times but also one of the most challenging times for the woman and I found that from my 2nd Trimester (14 weeks onwards) I was struggling to sleep, at first we blamed the bed which we had not been comfortable with for a while but then I realised it was more my protruding bump which was causing the aches and pains.
To try and combat this I used a spare pillow but just still could not get comfortable and after another nights bad sleep my husband returned home with the Mothercare Sleep Body Pillow in the hope that this would help me.
The pillow comes in 2 options, the original Mothercare Sleep Body Pillow at £29.99 and the Lavender Sleep Body Pillow at £34.99.
The difference between the Lavender Pillow is that is comes with a Lavender Heat pack which slips into the pouch on the pillow to help soothe aches and pains.
When hubby came home with this I was so pleased until I opened the box and realised just how big it was!!
The box was about half of the size of the pillow and when I opended the box the pillow was stuffed tightly inside in a clear plastic wrapper.
The Pillow is about 4.5ft long and very padded and contains its own pillowcase which can be removed and washed and I have to say I was very excited about the thought of a good nights sleep with this wonderful invention!
My normal sleeping position used to be on my belly, how this has changed as being pregnant this is one of the most uncomfortable positions and sleeping on your back is a no no once you have a prominent bump. It is recommended that you sleep on your left which if I have to sleep on my side this is the side I use.
The pillow itself is a bit difficult to manage when getting into the position due to its size but once you have it where you want it and relax it is soooooooo comfortable.
I sleep with the pillow inbetween my legs which I then pull up to my tummyand rest my tummy on the pillow which is just what I needed something to support the bump.
This pillow is ideal during pregnancy and also afterwards to support you and hubby and I use it when in bed as an extra pillow between us and also to support when breastfeeding the baby so it can be used afterwards.
If you are struggling to sleep I do recommend this pillow although it may seem fairly costly it is comfortable and will last much longer than your pregnancy.
Summary: A must have for later on in pregnanacy
