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.
