Which pregnancy pillow is best?
Which pregnancy pillow is best?
I was using two king sized pillows while Darling Husband was away on business…when he got home he wasn’t really able to fit comfortably in our bed so I got the snoogle. Its ok. The thing I don’t like about it is you kind of have to untangle your leg to turn over. With the king sized pillows I just unslip my leg from under the pillow and turn over. Since the snoogle goes under your leg and loops around you, it gets a little complicated. I really wanted to get the Leachco Belly and Back Pillow but I didn’t want to fork out the money (plus I had a 20% off coupon for BB&B and they didn’t have any in stock!). So the snoogle does what its supposed to, but for me its a little bit of a pain. My dogs seem to LOVE it though when Im not using it 😉

I plan on getting the Leachco Back N Belly Chic pillow
I just use a body pillow and find it much easier to flip around in bed with it 🙂
I also use a body pillow and love it. I bought the snoogle and it didn’t work for me. Too complicated for someone who turns over throughout the night. I would say that if you generally stay in one position, it would work well. But that’s definitely not me.
I have the Leachco back and body pillow, and I love it. But your poll will probably end up skewed since most of us haven’t tried all of them to say which is actually best. I will say the biggest drawback of the Leachco is the size- if we didn’t have a king size bed, I probably wouldn’t have gotten in. But we’re not tiny people and we both like to have our space in bed, which is why we have a king size in the first place. When I flip over, the only adjusting I have to do is to unhook my bottom arm from under the pillow, flip, and hook the new bottom arm under. It’s not too much work to do while sleeping.
newbabybee: I’m 26 weeks & used the Bump Nest for about a week, but it was too much pillow for me. I now use a sturdy king sized pillow between my knees and under my belly then use another softer pillow for my head and upper back.
I may break out the Bump Nest again if I start feeling more uncomfortable, but I’ve been sleeping pretty well.
I just use a regular body pillow – I got the Snoogle initially, and I didn’t like it. It was too firm for me so I found it to be uncomfortable. For most of my pregnancy, I’ve just hugged the body pillow. Now that I’m getting bigger, I’m more comfortable also having a regular pillow behind me to give a little more back support.
I’m using the Boppy cuddle pillow and I love it. It’s not too big and gives me a perfectly comfortbale sleeping position.
I used a $10 body pillow the whole time, it’s less heavy than the pregnancy pillows and I had to flip from side to side so often made it much easier to move around.
I have a Snoogle. I really liked it at first, but now that I’m 25 weeks, I don’t love it. I actually ditched it for a while and have been using a king size pillow. When my husband was gone I had two of them and it was great.
My issue with the Snoogle is 1) it got beat down, and the head part just wasn’t enough support. I much prefer my own pillow, but it’s really hard to use them together. And 2) it is a lot to wrestle with at night. I tend to flip back and forth from left to right side, and you either have to wrestle the whole thing over, or deal with it in a different position. I think I might try to re-engineer it a little myself, since I do really like it once I get “in it.”
I loved my boppy total body pillow! It was the perfect fit and I really loved the cute case that it could be folded up and stored in!
I just got a body pillow from target this past weekend and love it. It’s the perfect size and since I flip flop between sides during the night it’s easy to roll with it under the covers.
I have a body pillow similar to the lech and a snoogle mix. I love it! Also, I am not pregnant I just have back problems and my so got it for me as a gift. It’s amazing!! However, there is no room for so on the bed when I use it.
I used a $10 body pillow from WalMart and it worked great. I didn’t see a need to spend extra money on a fancy pillow.
