To ensure the proper flow of blood within the body, pregnant women often choose to sleep on their side. But they find it as a difficult task to do without any assistance from a body pillow. A body pillow like the Boppy Custom Fit Total Body Pillow comes into play. It can help pregnant women to experience a healthy and comfortable sleep during the night. As a result, the Boppy maternity pillows are extremely popular among expectant mothers who live in every corner of the world.
This pregnancy pillow differ a lot from the other maternity pillows that you can find in the market. That’s because it is a three piece small pillows that you can attached together into a big one. In addition to its unique feature, the Boppy maternity pillow is thicker in one end and thinner on the other end. This offers a wide range of options for the expectant mother and she can easily determine the side that gives a better feel during sleep.
This pillow has been created with the help of professional physical therapists. The main objective of this pillow is to offer customized support throughout the pregnancy. Back to the three-piece flexible design, the design has even got the patent license due to its uniqueness. In fact, the three-piece design offers more flexibility to the expectant mothers and you can choose from hip/leg/ankle support, belly/back support and head/neck support. The extended length design on this maternity pillow will support all the way to your ankles as well.
The pillow will come in handy even after the childbirth. You can use this pillow the nurse by baby and you don’t need to hold your baby in the hands. It can also be a funny toy for your toddlers. This pillow has the ability to cater all your comfort requirements and you can even use it as a comfortable pillow.
What I like
- This body pillow comes along with a unique, patented design
- It can help expectant mothers to have a comfortable and relaxing sleep at night
- Like other body pillows, it lessens or prevents body aches
- The three-piece design adds more flexibility to the comfort, there are 10 combinations that you can mix and match to suit your needs
- You can even use this pillow after childbirth.
- It is machine washable. You can use it even without a pillow cover
What I didn’t like
- Not enough stuffing. Other users reported that the pillow goes flat after a month so if you’re planning to use it for a long time, you should think twice
- The fabric is somewhat cheaply made and it feels itchy
- The velcro! It comes apart when you needed it most
The Boppy Custom Fit Total Body pillow seems good on paper. It is actually a comfortable pillow and offers support to your whole body. I really loved the unique three-piece design and I am sure many other women find it really attractive. The only problem is they didn’t stay together! Might as well, just stitched them together right? Additionally, it can become flat after several weeks or months of using it although I didn’t experienced it while testing this pillow. Overall, I will not recommend it as I found better alternative pillows out in the market.
