Secondhand maternity pillow


I went to Once Upon a Child today (Secondhand store for baby gear/furniture/clothes etc plus children's clothes) and found a boppy pregnancy pillow for 30.00 (it was in the original bag as well). These usually retail for 80.00 or more, but dh said it would be weird to buy it secondhand. This store is very good about inspecting all of their items because they pay you for the stuff you bring in. They don't take ripped/broken/heavily stained stuff.
Does anyone else think it would be worth It? I'd be saving like 50.00 or more! Or is it too strange to buy a maternity pillow secondhand?

I personally wouldn't. I get a bit icky about hotel pillows and such like, but I guess most pillows can be laundered?

I wouldn't have a problem with it so long as it can be put in the washer. The previous owner of the pillow may sleep naked and I can only imagine what might be on a pillow that gets puts between a person's knees/legs.....

Lol hadn't thought of sleeping naked, ew. I figured I would wash it a few times, and you can buy covers for them on amazon.

OUAC is pretty good about that. I would definitely give it a good, hot wash!

Personally, if you wanted one, I would just spring for a new one. I managed fine last time just using normal pillows. I would be cautious though about washing it because washing can cause the fibres in pillows to shrink sometimes and then it's just a lumpy, misshapen mess. I think if you want a pillow, get yourself a new one.

How about getting a brand new bolster pillow the type you would find that are thinner than a normal pillow but double the length of a single pillow, I have one it's pretty much the same as a maternity pillow - I have mine to cuddle and rest my bump on and then I tuck it between my legs, so comfy and as it's not marketing as a maternity pillow but a bolster one it's cheap, you can get one of eBay or amazon for under £10
