Nope, this post will have nothing to do with cloth diapers. It’s all about the mama this time.
A week ago my husband and I were watching The Back-up Plan (tons of “s” words, terribly stereotypically and a hilariously inaccurate portrayal of homebirth). If you’ve seen it you know that the body pillow is a small focus in the movie. I just happened to have been sleeping terribly and my midwife had told me to buy a body pillow.
As soon as the credits rolled I grabbed Michael’s phone and ordered me a DELUXE body pillow. No simple tube pillow for this mama!
I read all the reviews and I was seriously stalking my mailbox for it to arrive. I couldn’t wait. Sure it would take up more than 1/2 our king size bed. Sure it would add a barrier between my husband and I. Sure it would look ugly on my bed. BUT, REALLY! I just wanted a good night’s rest.
I was delighted that it arrived much quicker than I expected and I eagerly tore open the box. It is big for sure.
I really can’t describe to you how lovely this thing cradles my body. It’s amazing. I can sleep comfortably in any position (well not on your belly ;) )and I don’t have the pains in my hips that I was having. No doubt, most of y’all have already figured out the joys of the body pillow but just in case you haven’t — YOU MUST HAVE A BODY PILLOW!
So which one did I buy? The Leachco All Nighter – Total Body Pillow. I can’t imagine someone not feeling pampered in this pillow.
Some of the reviews said the cover was itchy. I did worry about this as I have sensitive skin that seems to want to break out into a rash whenever possible. I have not had any problems. The cover isn’t “soft” but I wouldn’t call it itchy or rough.
And for the record, although I call this my #1 it’s really my #2. #1 is a husband that will give you a foot massage whenever you ask for one :)
