Every women’s pregnancy is different but the main thing that is similar between everyone is an excessive amount of back pain. By the time you’re four to five months pregnant, your stomach has grown enough to offset your balance and create back pain.
Many pillows are designed to help sleep on your side like recommended by doctors but some are specially designed to also brace your back and decrease back pain due to pregnancy.
One of the best pillows I’ve found that specializes in back support is the Khomo Extra Light Maternity Pillow.
The Khomo Extra Light Materity Pillow is specially designed to address back pain. It has a cushion to support your back which can be adjusted and also has a removable back.
This will remove the fatigue that is present on your back due to the extra weight on your stomach.
The lightweight pillow is easy to maneuver and forms perfectly between your legs for firm leg support.
The entire weight of the full body pillow is only 2.7 pounds which is much lighter than many other maternity pillows.
The material that the Khomo Extra Light Maternity Pillow is made out of is thinner and lighter which will prevent you from overheating during the night. There is also a zipper on the pillow case which allows easy removal for washing.
The unique shape and design of this pillow also helped me to sleep on my left side along with giving me something to cuddle with. The “L” shape of the pillow hugged around me while I could also cuddle with it. It adapts to my new body curves and provides maximum comfort.
I would highly recommend this pillow to virtually any pregnant women. The amount of pain that has been alleviated due to this pillow is unbelievable.
I don’t feel any fatigue in my shoulders or upper back and the swelling on my feet isn’t even half as bad as during my first pregnancy. You will experience great relief from stress due to your large stomach.
Even if you aren’t experiencing crippling back pain, this pillow is easy to maneuver and helps to comfortably sleep on your side during pregnancy. Another big bonus is that it isn’t nearly as bulky as other pillows. If you only have a queen or even a full size bed, this pillow will comfortably fit with you and your significant other.
- Size makes it easy to fit in a queen bed
- Zipper cover can be removed very easily.
- Thinner and lighter material
- Gives form shoulder support.
- You can hug the pillow in a comfortable position and have great relaxing hours
- Its light weight makes it easy to mover around
- Non-organic materials
