Pregnancy Pillow

Since before I was even pregnant, we had a V pillow in the house. So I started using this when I became pregnant to try and sleep a bit more comfortably.

I have always been such a good sleeper but with certain comforts that disappear with pregnancy along with the pressure of trying to sleep on your left hand side (after 16 - 20 weeks) I was struggling to sleep.

So I did a bit of research and found this Theraline original pillow had great reviews and was super excited to try it.

When it came - I took it out the box and I think I pretty much lay on the sofa with it and had an awesome nap.

It's much longer than the v pillow and the inside is like the filling of a beanbag and can only be described as so 'touchy feely'. It's SO easy to move the filling to where you want it, you might want more or less under your head or between your knees.

You kind of just sink in to it too - it's seriously like the pillow is giving you a hug ! It's described as feeling like sand - but as light as a feather - which it is !

My favourite way to use the pillow is in front of me, with the top bit under my head and the bottom bit between my knees. I also use it to sit up in bed behind me and read - it's really supportive and I think it will be really great for when it comes to feeding.

I have also been putting it behind me to stop me rolling on to my back and there is still enough of it to come through my knees and up in front of my belly.

I can really recommend this pillow to anyone who is struggling to get comfy at night when pregnant and I hope that you love it as much as I do.

You can buy it from John Lewis or Theraline and find out much more about the benefits.

Let me know if you buy one or have one yourself and what you think ! Every mama to be should have one !

Here's to a cosy nights sleep :)

This is not a sponsored post, but I was sent a pillow to see if I liked it and I LOVE it and would totally buy it myself and will recommend to any friends in their future pregnancies.
