Merry Pregnant Christmas - Boppy Total Body Pillow Review and Giveaway



When I sat down and thought about products that would really be useful to a pregnant woman, the first item that came to mind was a pregnancy pillow. I don't know WHY I never thought to get one with my other two children, but I was a fool. Boppy sent me their Total Body Pillow to review, and it has changed my pregnant life for the better!

I know we have all heard of the standard Boppy Pillow. I think that is a common name in most households and a favorite nursing product must have among moms. I had NO idea they carried different types of pillows and wedges for pregnancy. Let me show you the mom items they offer and then I will gush about the Total Body Pillow!

First item up to bat is the Cuddle Pillow:



A body pillow for the growing and changing shape of mom-to-be that won’t take over the bed. This smaller-sized body pillow keeps the back properly aligned by supporting the belly and legs. The soft Pima Cotton slipcover is easily removable for washing.



Cuddle Pillow
I can see how this would be helpful if you didn't have a huge bed. If you still want support, but cant fit a huge pillow, then opt for this adorable pillow. Destination Maternity sells this for $39.99.


Next we have the Pregnancy Wedge:

Pregnancy WedgeThe Pregnancy Wedge is a versatile support cushion for back and belly support during or after pregnancy. The compact size allows for easy positioning and is perfect for travel. Soft Pima Cotton slipcover is easy to wash.

This can also be purchased from Destination Maternity for $14.99. This probably offers the least support, but if perfect if you just want to prop your belly or put it behind your back to help keep you from rolling off your side. This is also the most wallet friendly.


Last but certainly not least, we have the Total Body Pillow!



The Total Body Pillow provides total body support before, during and after pregnancy. The unique design follows the body line to offer support and realignment for neck, belly, back and hips. The soft Pima Cotton slipcover makes washing easy.

Additional slipcovers sold separately.




Total Body Pillow
Like I said above, this pillow has saved me during my current pregnancy. I had always managed to get along fine using five or six pillows with my past pregnancies, and it ended up being okay. A little bit annoying, but doable. This pregnancy has been a whole different story. From about 16 weeks until now(19 weeks 3 days), I have had excruciating hip pain in my right hip. I am convinced it is not sciatica and plan on talking to my OB, but in the meantime, the Boppy Total Body Pillow has been my savior! Getting into bed and putting the lower part of the pillow between my legs helps keep my hips aligned and takes the pressure off. The middle section helps support my growing belly and the top part is perfect for wrapping my arms around and snuggling in. I have always been a pillow hugger though!

You can pick up one of these life saving pillows from Destination Maternity for $54.99. I know the price tag seems hefty, but I literally use this every single night and will continue to until I deliver. I know I can use it with future pregnancies as well! The relief it gives me from my hip pain is worth any price tag in my opinion. I highly recommend this if you are having trouble sleeping or are experiencing similar hip or pelvic problems!
