I didn't really believe I needed a specific "pregnancy pillow" and thought any pillow between my knees would do the job - and it did... for a while. But after around 30 weeks I couldn't do anything to stop my back pain whilst sleeping. A friend recommended the pillow. Still not really believing that it would work I ordered it and gave it ago. It was the best decision I made! I sleep so much better, the pillow supports not only my legs but also my bump as well as my back.
Some people said it's too small, but I disagree. I am average height (1.68m) and if you place the top part of the pillow just under your waist, it supports in the front your bump, in the back your back, and the pillow is long enough to support your legs wether they are completely bent or slightly stretched. Someptimes, when I feel I need a higher support between my legs I just fold the bottom part of the pillow in two.
The only difficulty is turning to the other side. In the beginning I re-arranged the whole pillow every time I turned. Now I leave it as it is and just lie on it from the other side, taking the part for the legs between my legs from the back (not sure if explained well, but it works).
Definitely recommend to any person! Also, my friends said it's great for breastfeeding!
