Pregnancy wedge that has multiple usesMar 05, 2011
I got this wedge to support my tummy when sleeping on my side while pregnant. I already had the Boppy full support body pillow which I loved, but still did not get the adequate support for my baby belly when using the body pillow alone. The wedge is small and worked well with my body pillow. I would tuck this wedge in under my belly and it did make a difference, making me more comfortable. The slipcover zips off, washes nicely, and easily zips back on. The wedge is made of a firm foam. The only nuisance was when I had to switch sides due to my hips going numb, I would have to readjust my wedge every time, but it only took a few seconds as it is a good compact size.
I continued to use this wedge after my baby was born for a few different uses. We used it in his bassinet, underneath the top part of the mattress to raise my baby's head as the rounded part of the wedge fit perfectly in it. My baby could not lay flat due to spit up and acid reflux issues, so the wedge provided the perfect rise. I also used it during nursing to provide an added boost to baby's head. I placed it underneath my baby's head, on top of the regular Boppy pillow to raise his head closer for nursing. We also used it to raise my baby's head when he was lying down next to us. We monitored him at all times whenever we used it this way.
Overall this wedge has been used a lot, more than we originally thought when purchasing it. I would recommend it.

My Miracle PillowJul 20, 2011
I call this my "miracle pillow" and I take it with me anytime I have to sleep away from home.
When I was not even into my second trimester yet, I began having pain in my hips that would wake me up several times a night. I tried putting a regular pillow between my legs, and also purchased a body pillow thinking that would help, neither helped, AT ALL! Then one day I ran across this product on Amazon and since it was such a good price, decided to give it a try. I didn't think it would help me until my belly got larger, but I tried it the first night I had it anyway. Now it doesn't CURE the pain entirely, but it certainly helped a great deal! I have been sleeping much better now that I have this pillow, and now that I'm well into my second trimester I have found other increasingly helpful uses for it, such as back support while sitting on the couch. I also use it to sleep on my back in the night when side sleeping is no longer working by propping it under my right side so that I am not "flat" on my back.
I HIGHLY recommend this product!

Worth it!Jun 19, 2011
I read a lot of reviews for this pregnancy wedge and many women felt that once you pass a certain point in pregnancy (aka get to big) this is worthless. I do not feel the same way. I got this wedge at 7 months pregnant, now almost 8 and I use it every night and just love it. It give me the extra support needed in the belly area to feel completely comfortable. Plus it is easy to flip with you because of it's size when you need to flip over. If you are not looking for the full body pregnancy pillow and just something to help support your belly I highly recommend this product.

seems comfortable but has overpowering chemical odor so never usedMar 31, 2012
The pillow seems like it would be comfortable, but I wouldn't know because I never used it. Once I took it out of the package, I noticed an overpowering chemically odor. I realize my sense of smell is heightened with pregnancy, but the odor reminded me of the smell of just-varnished floors, a smell I came across pre-pregnancy as I looked for low-VOC hardwood stain and topcoat products. This makes sense, because the tag on the pillow lists the foam insert as being made of 100% polyurethane. Yes, polyurethane is also used as the clear topcoat on floors and is known to emit toxic fumes in both its liquid and foam forms.
While I didn't have time to look extensively into the science of PU emissions, a quick search came up with this statement from a seemingly reliable source: "the levels of PBDEs in polyurethane foam pillows are among the highest in your house and the direct exposure can lead to liver damage and affect thyroid function." Further investigation wasn't necessary to decide that the pillow had to go back - the odor was repellant enough.
Also, the cotton cover is low quality, fairly flimsy and rough. The weave definitely didn't contain the odor/fumes.

Life (or sleep, that is) Saver!!Aug 18, 2011
By Jandy Salguero

I don't usually go online for the express purpose of writing a review, but have for this item. I'm in my 2nd pregnancy, 38 weeks now, and had to start using something like this by 18 weeks. So, I've been using this for 20 weeks now and it has been awesome. The only thing I regret is not buying 2 of them for when I flip over at night. It does lose some shape and firmness over time, but I actuallly found this convenient with the growing belly getting bigger and not needing as big a wedge under my belly. When I turn over at night, this also feels so good to lay on under my back. Sometimes I adjust where it hits my body, upper or lower back/torso, depending on what's hurting me that night. I'm 5'5" and it's really the perfect size. Not too big like all the other pillows I saw.
All-in-all, I really believe this has saved me many hours of sleeplessness. It's a great buy and worth trying out. I also plan to use it to prop the baby up after he's born if needed for sleep.
