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 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…

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48


There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  


About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …

On Waiting

This past weekend we went to a book party for a priest friend who had his second book Living the Beatitudes:A Journey to Life in Christ published last fall.  The party was hosted by another Catholic author.  And, after the cake was cut and people were sitting quietly, the host of the party began to speak.  He began to talk about how great this book is and how insightful so much of it is.  Then he began to share quotes from it.  And I felt as if he chose two of them for me:

"Waiting is the training ground of trust."

"Beauty is the crescendo of waiting"
Now, although we have this book and my husband has read it, I have not (sorry, Fr. B).  But that night, I sat with the book while my hubby and I sat down to attempt to watch a movie and I scoured the book for the above quotes.  Too shy to ask the host for the pages for these quotes, I skimmed page by page until I found them.  And after I found the first quote, I was confronted with line after line about waiting.  I read…
