A short post to introduce my ultimate pregnancy purchase …
When I was about 12 weeks pregnant, at the recommendation of a friend, I made my first pregnancy purchase: my pregnancy pillow.
This simple, squishy, mouldable, u-shaped sack of beans is a revelation. As a serial sleep-fidget, known to completely traverse a bed while snoozing, being comfortably tucked into one place is a very good thing. The bigger I get, the better the benefit.
The only downside? My love for my new best friend is making my husband jealous. Probably doesn’t help that I’ve named the pillow Philip.
My pillow, from prenatal in Amsterdam, is technically a doomoo ‘voedingskussen’ (baby feeding pillow), but it serves dual purposes. Handy, as it’s not cheap. Final note. If you browse for pillows online, you can find monster-size body engulfing ones. I’ve only tried this smaller version, but it’s plenty big enough.
What’s your ultimate pregnancy purchase? Or are you a man who has also been replaced by a pillow?
