Born in the USA, Baby! Leachco Baby Products Review

TCBOTB

Several years ago when I was pregnant with my first son, a friend of mine shared some pregnancy advice . . She said that the one thing she could not live without while pregnant was a body pillow.S o my wonderful hubby gave me one from Christmas. Fast forward to my third pregnancy .. . . The body pillow that I had during my first pregnancy was worn out . . . I realized that I loved using it ALL the TIME!!!! Pregnant or not, I used a body pillow. Well, I was lucky enough to be given a Leachco Snoogle body pillow. It is amazing. The pillow is, of course made in the USA. It is long and curves at each end. The top end curves in such a way (like an L shape), so that you can use the top part of the pillow as the pillow for your head. The bottom part of the pillow curves in a c shape. It curves that way so that you can lay with you legs cuddling the length of pillow and the "c" portion of the pillow loops around and supports your lower leg while sleeping. It is also designed this way so that you could sleep with the long portion of the pillow in the front of you and you cuddle the pillow, or with the pillow behind you to support your back, while still supporting your legs, which is so important while pregnant. I still love sleeping with this pillow. I turn a lot at night and it is nice to have a body pillow that I do not have to move with me. I can leave this in one place and can use it to support my back, or if I turn, I can use it for front support.



This pillow is very versatile too. The pillow comes with a sheet to show you several uses for the pillow, including support of c sections and back support while sitting. Another unique design is that the pillow comes with a 2 piece or one piece pillow case that washable.




I m very impressed with this pillow. I have had several other body pillows and this, by far, is the best one. I still use it, even though I am not pregnant.






Leachco also makes nursing pillows, shopping cart covers, other body pillows for maternity and beyond, and baby bath accessories. All Lechoco products are made in the USA.

  1. Ah! That is so Funny! someone on babychitchat.com was talking about this the other day and since then, I've heard so much about these pillows! I need to find one of these.

    Are they comfortable?

  2. Yes, they are super comfy! It is, by far, the best body pillow I have tried. They are pricey, but I think worth it. The only thing I forgot to mention in the review is to get the one with the 1 piece pillow case. I have the one with the 2 piece pillow case and the case does slip a bit, which can be annoying.

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

Hope's Birth Story

When it comes to birth stories, most women do not write up, nor do I think they want to read about, scheduled c-sections. But, I want to remember the day and if I do not write it here to publish, it is unlikely that I will sit down for my own sake, and write, so bear with me as I recount the day.

As with most scheduled, repeat c-sections, the date was scheduled months in advanced.  I knew that Hope would arrive on May 3 unless she decided to surprise us and my body would decide to go into labor for the first time ever.  Although I am older and anything is possible, I thought it highly unlikely, so I was not too worried that she would be born any sooner that May 3rd.

The hospital that I deliver at has started something called the "Family Centered C-Section."  If you are having a scheduled, routine, c-section, you can elect to have a family centered c-section.  Basically, they allow you to have some of the experiences that you miss in a c-section that you have in a natural birt…
