I have always needed several pillows in order to get a good night’s sleep, but when pregnant the need becomes even bigger. As I am entering into the last stretch of my fourth pregnancy, I am especially feeling the need for extra pillows, and this is the first time that I have tried using a maternity pillow.

My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow

Initially, I was surprised at how small the My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow – the 3-in-1 Body Pillow, seemed, but as I unpacked and unfolded it, it started making sense.

My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow

The My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow is meant to support a pregnant woman’s body in the spots that need support, and it does just that. The bottom part goes in between the thighs, the middle part goes under the belly, and the top part of the My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow goes under your head.

The My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow has not eliminated my need for many pillows in the bed, as I am still using the double pillows under my head, and a pillow in between my legs to keep me from leaning down too much on the side. However, the My Brest Friend 3-in-1 body pillow has fulfilled a need that I had a hard time solving.

As I have entered the last stage of the pregnancy, the pillow in between my legs has not been enough support, and I  have begun needing extra support under the side of my belly as well. I tried using a regular pillow, but it seemed to be too big, which made sleeping uncomfortable.

The My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow has been the perfect match. Now I have a little extra support in between my legs, and the belly support part of the pillow is the perfect size for keeping me from rolling over too much on my belly. It has made sleeping much more comfortable, and I no longer wake up the baby from pushing on her during my sleep.

My three-year-old son is a big snuggler, and at first he felt that the 3-in-1 body pillow came in between him and his mother, when it was time to snuggle. After a little adjusting he is now getting used to the My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow, and he gets to borrow the head part of it, so that he can still snuggle close.

The one big question I had was whether or not the My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow would make me sleep better. The answer is simple, because it has improved my sleep, especially during this final part of my pregnancy. I switch sides constantly, and the My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow easily changes sides with me in the middle of the night. My only regret….is that I did not have a maternity pillow during my first, second and third pregnancy.
