It wasn’t long before it became apparent that I needed some sort of better support for my growing belly. It’s not that I’m entirely uncomfortable, I feel pretty good for the most part but I still need the support. I had another pregnancy pillow from my previous pregnancies but it wasn’t really cutting it. It had become flat and wasn’t providing the all around support that I needed.
Enter the Comfort-U Pillow that Beth from The Gentle Nest sent me to try out!
All Moonlight Slumber bed pillows and maternity pillows contain a synthetic down. This material offers all the comfort and breathability of down, without the hassles with wear, dust mites and allergies. This air activated loft is downy soft and light, yet extremely durable. It is odorless, hypoallergenic, stays hygienically clean, offers relief from dust mites and comes with a lifetime warranty against clumping or sagging. It is warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and it feels luxurious, yet is fully machine washable and dryable.
This is the Comfort U Maternity Pillow on a full size bed. As you can see it takes up about half of the bed if not more. It takes up more room than my previous maternity pillow but for a very good reason!
It is *so* much more comfortable. Because it’s a U Shape when I roll over from side to side I don’t have to worry about taking the pillow with me. Everything I need is right there on the other side.
I also love that it supports the front of my belly and my back. For me back pain during pregnancy gets worse as my pregnancy progresses so having support for my back while sleeping is a huge plus for me. My back has been holding up really well as I’ve gotten bigger and I think a lot of that has to do with this pillow!
The pillow itself is easy to clean it comes with the white cover pictured above and you just unzip it and tax off the cover to wash.
The pillow is broken up into three different pieces making it easy to un-stuff and re-stuff for washing purposes.
We LOVE this pillow and I find it hard to believe that I’ll ever take it off the bed. I probably will when baby first gets here since we’ll want minimal pillows and blankets on the bed but I already know who’s more than willing to take it over
He sleeps in every night before I come to bed. When I come to bed I often move him out of it and if he wakes up God help me because he wants to be in it no if ands or buts about it. If I do manage to move him without waking by the time we wake up in the morning him and I are in the pillow together. Because it’s U-Shaped though it expands to fit both of us which is good for co-sleeping Mamas like myself but also growing Moms!
They actually have a Jr. version of this pillow specifically for your little one, I may have to pick one up so we can each have one!
