At six months pregnant, I’d become incredibly agitated at night. No matter how tired I was, I just couldn’t get comfortable; when I would wake up in the morning, I would have such severe back pain that I couldn’t stand up. I’d wince and almost cry just walking to the bathroom. I couldn’t imagine surviving another three months with that type of suffering. Then, something completely changed my sleeping world – the Boppy Total Body Pillow. Boppy has become a household name with their signature feeding pillows that offer moms a comfortable way to nurse their baby. They’ve utilized that knowledge and experience to design the Boppy Total Body Pillow, which provides expectant moms comfort and support at night so they can get a good night’s rest. This pillow is the perfect size and shape; unlike a conventional pillow, the Total Body Pillow allows full support for my entire body. From my head, my developing belly, and my legs, this pillow provides the utmost comfort and relief.
Both ends are firm and the middle breaks a little letting it curve in towards my body. Placing the lower part between my legs aligns my hips again and helps relieve all the added strain on my back. With a specific design for pregnant women, it provides support for my belly without the extra bulk. Since this pillow is shorter in length than most pregnancy body pillows, it is easier to change positions when I turn throughout the night. I get comfortable more quickly, fall asleep faster, and change positions less often throughout the night.
It also comes with a soft Pima Cotton slipcover that can be washed easily and the pillow case can be changed without much of a hassle.
Gone are my nights of tossing and turning, never to find relief. Gone are the mornings of crawling to the bathroom with my hands on my knees to take some of the pressure off of my back. The Total Body Pillow sells for $47.99, but it is worth its weight in gold.
