How To Use A Pregnancy Pillow


During the later stages of pregnancy, a maternity pillow, or ‘crocodile’ as many fellow women who’ve found themselves wrestling with it during the night tend to call it, is the perfect way to support your back and bump as you try to get a good night’s sleep. Pregnancy can affect sleep in various ways; an increase in strength, hormonal changes, heartburn and physical discomfort are just some of the issues that can occur. There are a range of different pregnancy pillows that to choose from – from the wedge to the U-shaped option, so today’s post will introduce to the different types, and suggest some practical tips for how to use them correctly for maximum comfort during your pregnancy and beyond.

Using a Pregnancy Pillow is Different for Every Mum


One thing to consider is that while we’ve provided you with some tips on how you can use different pregnancy pillows for your needs, every mum’s body is different and has different needs. It’s up to you which pregnancy pillow you use and how you adjust it for your needs as you know your body better than everyone else. We have a range of different articles that can support you during your pregnancy so check out our Little Extras Maternity section for more tips and guidance.  

Top Tip: When purchasing a pregnancy pillow, be sure to check if it’s washable. Many maternity pillows are machine washable without losing their shape, but others may not be! If not, get yourself a few extra pillowcases.
