What are the materials in Belly Bandit Pregnancy Pillows?
Our S.O.S. Side Sleeper Pregnancy Pillow is covered with ultra-soft jersey, which is machine washable to make life a little easier. The inner pillows are made from 100% polyurethane foam, which is ergonomically designed to keep you from rolling over onto your back.
When should you start using a pregnancy pillow?
Most doctors recommend that pregnant women start sleeping on their side around week 20 and continue through the end of their pregnancy. But if you find that you’re more comfortable on your side before your 20th week (or you want to start getting into the habit sooner), you can start using a pregnancy pillow as early as you want!
How do I know which type of pregnancy pillow I need?
The best pregnancy pillow for you will depend on a few things: how you tend to sleep, the size of your bed, and how much support you need to feel comfortable, for starters. If you’re a side sleeper, look for a pillow that supports the weight of your belly; expecting moms love the wedge component of our S.O.S. Side Sleeper Pregnancy Pillow because it fits nicely under the belly and is easy to adjust. If you’re a stomach sleeper, you’ll want to start training yourself to sleep on your side, which is where our three-part system comes in handy. While the wedge gently supports your belly, the triangle pillow sits against your back to prevent you from rolling backwards during the night. If you experience pain during the night, you might want to add a small pillow between your knees, in addition to the S.O.S. Side Sleeper Pregnancy Pillow.
How should you sleep with a pillow when pregnant?
Typically, expecting moms use maternity body pillows for three main reasons: supporting a growing belly; keeping them on their side for optimal blood flow and oxygen to the uterus; and easing back pain and pressure on the joints. When it comes down to how to sleep with a pregnancy pillow, you’ll want an option that supports your belly and your back and keeps you on your side—like our doctor-designed S.O.S. Side Sleeper Pregnancy Pillow.
Will a Belly Bandit pregnancy pillow help reduce back pain?
A wedge pillow positioned under your belly may help reduce back pain. You may also want to consider supplementing with a small pillow between your knees to keep your hips and legs parallel, which may also give you some relief from back pain caused by pregnancy.
Which is better: U-shaped or C-shaped pregnancy pillow?
While U-shaped pregnancy pillows and C-shaped pregnancy pillows both have their benefits, they fall a bit short when it comes to adjustability, convenience, and design. You can adjust each component of our S.O.S. Side Sleeper Pregnancy Pillow and velcro it securely in place so it fits you comfortably all night, and all through your pregnancy. It’s easy to clean, with machine-washable covers—no more struggling to fit an awkward pillow back into its pillowcase! It’s also great for travel, and we’ve found that moms (and their partners!) love how little space it takes up in the bed.
Are pregnancy pillows worth the money?
A good night’s sleep—especially when you’re dealing with back pain or other issues during pregnancy—is priceless! Our S.O.S. Side Sleeper Pregnancy Pillow is a cost-effective way to get better sleep while you’re pregnant, and give you the peace of mind that your baby is getting optimal blood flow and oxygen during the night.
Where can I buy pregnancy pillows?
You can buy the S.O.S. Side Sleeper Pregnancy Pillow right here on the Belly Bandit website, as well as on select retailer sites.
Which pregnancy pillow is best?
The best pregnancy pillow for you will depend a lot on your personal preferences, but thousands of moms have deemed our S.O.S. Side Sleeper Pregnancy Pillow to be the best maternity body pillow for its compact size, superior adjustability, and easy-to-clean design. It’s also great for travel and keeps you cool during the night, as opposed to the bigger U-shaped and C-shaped pregnancy pillows.
Do I really need a pregnancy pillow?
Because doctors recommend that pregnant women sleep on their side starting in the second trimester, sleeping with a pregnancy pillow is a good idea for many expecting mamas. (Sleeping on your side, particularly your left side, promotes healthy blood flow and oxygen to the uterus.) The best pregnancy pillow will keep you securely on your side all night, so you don’t have to worry about waking up on your back and you can enjoy some quality zzz’s before baby comes.
