Born in the USA, Baby! Leachco Baby Products Review


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 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 …

Yonanas and a yummy protein chocolate peanut butter ice cream

I have to admit, I have a sweet tooth.  A big sweet tooth.  I blame it on genetics.  My dad loves sweets and I think my grandmother, his mother, subsisted only on foods that contained sugar.  But, when you are working on eating healthy and bringing the whole family along with you, things like ice cream, cookies and cakes have to replaced by something better.

So, when Lena from JOYfilled family posted about the Yonanas she got, I wanted to try it!  Yonanas makes "ice cream" from frozen bananas.  I have heard of making "ice cream" this way before and I have tried it in our blended, but it usually came out quite liquidy.  So, when we got a gift card for Amazon, I knew exactly what I wanted to buy.

I have used the Yonanas several times and I love it!!  The consistency of the "ice cream" is very smooth, light and creamy.  My 4 year old, who is a very picky eater, loves his new "ice cream."  Now, my older boys could not be fooled . . . they immediatel…
