Getting a Good Night’s Sleep While You are Expecting

8349

Let’s face it, a good night’s sleep is crucial to getting through a tough day.  One of the cruelest ironies of my pregnancies is that just when my body is craving more and better sleep, I have such a difficult time getting comfortable enough to fall or stay asleep. Knowing that studies show that getting more sleep and really restful sleep helps moms have healthier pregnancies, have easier deliveries and healthy babies adds to the pressure. It’s like the Princess and the Pea if I’m not comfortable all I can do is think about what body part hurts.

Knowing all of that, I’m sure it isn’t a surprise for you to know how excited I was when I was asked to try out products from the Boppy® Prenatal Comfort Collection. I loved trying out a bunch of different products designed for expecting moms and ditch folding and twisting my regular pillows and throws. I like using them in bed and around my house so I can be comfortable even when I’m just relaxing (or maybe even sneaking in a nap).

There are four different Boppy® Pregnancy pillows in four different shapes and price points so you can find the right solution for you. I especially liked the ability to customize my setup depending on where I was. Some options were perfect for my bed while others were perfect for the living room. Other pillows worked best while I was trying to sit comfortably and others worked best for me when I was flat out.

My kitty-cat loved testing out Boppy’s pregnancy pillows too!

The Boppy® Bump & Back Support Pillow was my go to when I was reclining on the couch in the evening and reading to by toddler at bedtime. It followed me from the living room right into his bedroom.

 

 

At night the Boppy® Multi-use Slipcovered Total Body Pillow offers full body support. It supports me at all my key points without taking up the whole bed. In the video below you can see how its contours help support my head, neck, back, bump and feet.

 

My problems with sleep aren’t just when I’m gigantic and in the final home stretch, my lower back issues start just as I start to show. Boppy® Pregnancy Support Pillow is not too big and not too small. It’s just right size works perfectly for me as my belly grows. It’s the perfect combo of supportive yet soft and squishy in all the right ways I use it while I’m relaxing on the couch too.

The Boppy Multi-use Slipcovered Total Body Pillow is comfy on the couch too!

Boppy® Pregnancy Wedge (with Jersey Slipcover) is firm and compact which makes it super portable. I actually like to bring it with me to work and also use it when I’m sitting at the dining table. Because it is out and about with me I love knowing that the Slipcover is removable and machine washable.
