Maternity pillows, worth it?


Probably could have posted in third tri for this but as this is the group Iím in I will stick and Iím sure many of you have other children as well...

DH has offered to buy me a maternity pillow but wondering whether to take him up on the offer or just ask for the money

I was planning to get a nursing pillow when baby is born anyway, so thinking of getting one that doubles up.

Anyone got any views or experience? Any recommendations? Or are they a waste of money?

I have a giant preggo pillow and couldn't cope without it. It's sort of like a bean bag so can make it thicker and thinner when and where its needed.

Yes best thing ever. I have the Snoogle C-shaped one, it’s awesome. I know they’re a bit pricey but I use it every night and even during the day because it can be folded into a bunch of different positions for back support etc while sitting.

Following, I've been researching a bit trying to decide if I should get one!

For me, no, I found that two normal pillows between my legs was much more comfortable and versatile. Also, when feeding baby, especially if you plan to bf, you often need to adjust the height of any pillows you use, so having something a bit more adjustable than a maternity pillow will be beneficial. I found that 1-2 normal pillows again worked much better. You won't use pillows for feeding for long though, only really in the early weeks and then you just get on with it. I'd save that money and put it towards something you might enjoy more, like a spa day or massage or something for you.

I found normal pillows useful. I never tried a maternity one.
