Being pregnant is a wonderful thing, but there’s no question that those months can be very uncomfortable. Personally, I found sleeping very difficult because I am a tummy sleeper and that’s a no-go in the later months. I had always wanted a maternity pillow to help me get those much-needed Zzzz’s I had been missing, but I never did invest in one. (I actually won one, but never received it. Boo.)
It’s hard to invest the money in a large maternity pillow when you think you’ll only use it for a short time. Had I known them what I know now, I would have slept easier with the 3-in-1 Maternity Pillow from Inspired Mother, which can be used long after baby is born!
“Designed by a “mum to be,” this full length body pillow is non-allergenic ideal for asthma and allergy sufferers, 100% cotton for a soft and natural finish, with a hand stuffed filling which ensures support for your body and baby during pregnancy. The pillow comes with one 100% cotton pillow case and with a travel bag with handles to make carrying the pillow easier.” ~InspiredMother.net
If you’re a tummy sleeper like me, you can just lay the pillow in front of you and lean forward to get that familiar comfy position without disturbing baby. If you sleep on your back, you can position it behind you for back support. Again, it enables you to sleep safely in a position closer to the one you’re used to.
And then, once baby arrives, you can use it as a nursing pillow! I’ve always used a traditional U-shaped pillow, but I honestly think I like this type of support better. You can wrap it around you, supporting your back, arm, shoulder, and baby. I only wish I had known that I could do this 4 years ago when I began breastfeeding!
The pillow comes with a cotton case, but I put another case over it (little kids around, you know…) Mine was a standard body pillow size and it fit perfectly.
Inspired Mother also offers other colors in a pretty waffle knit fabric on their website, along with lots of other items like nursing camis, belly bands and even muslin loveys.
