==Prince Lion heart Pregnancy Pillow==
When I was pregnant with Jack it was hell.
Both Jack and I were big and not just big I mean really big. Jack weighed nearly 9lb when he was born (ouch) and I managed to put on around 5 stone (all gone now and a little bit more). For some reason I thought I was eating for two when in actual fact I was probably eating enough for four!!!
Anyhow this caused a lot of aches and pains especially when laying down as the weight of my stomach just felt so uncomfortable and was giving me back pains. I ended up going to get a back support from the hospital to wear in the day but this wasn't something designed for comfort at night and the hospital suggested I get a pillow such as this Prince Lion heart one.
I searched on pregnant pillows and this was the one I came up with that looked like just what I needed and I didn't' hesitate to pay the £30 out to hopefully finally get a comfortable and restful nights sleep (Huh!).
So once I got the pillow it was all fairly straight forward on how to use it. The pillow itself is made from a very firm type of memory foam and is shaped in a very practical wedge shape. It is designed to fit under the bump to take the pressure off when you are lying on your side. It can also be used between the legs to even out the hips somewhat.
The first night I used it, I have to say did take a little getting used to and finding the right position but I once I had myself right I found the relief was wonderful and it did feel very comfortable compared to what it had been. I would use this pillow as the wedge placed beside me and put another regular pillow in between my legs to have the best of both worlds.
I wasn't sure how I was gong to get on with the fact that it was memory foam and whether I would sink into it too much but it was nice and firm and the wedge of it meant that if I needed to roll off of it I could do so easily.
I found I slept far better after using this pillow (but still not a lovely un-pregnant type of sleep) and I would totally recommend it and will certainly be using this again as I have kept it in preparation! Even though I was not happy at paying out the £30 at first as it is a lot of money, I feel it does the job far better than a regular pillow as it feel firmer whilst the wedge shape seems a good one making it good value for money.
The pillow breathes well and doesn't make you any hotter than you would normally be (I was always very hot whilst pregnant and very swollen) and all in all I cannot really fault it. I think maybe a four out of five star rating and the minus mark being for the price which I am sure you would be able to get a little cheaper if you shop about.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
