Unlike other types of pillows, a pregnancy support pillow is a necessity not a source of luxury. They come in different designs and as such meet different needs.
While the full-length and bean-shaped pregnancy pillows are amongst the most popular options, they take too much space in the bed. It’s also somehow hard to personalize the comfort they offer where it’s needed much.
That’s where the wedged pillows come in. These ‘triangular-shaped’ pillows are versatile and give customized support where the user needs it. They can be positioned to support the belly and prevent it from pulling down or at the back to alleviate back pains. In addition, they ease hip pain and numbness when placed between the legs. Moreover, they can be used to raise the regular head pillow to reduce acid refluxes.
These pointers will guide you when purchasing a pregnancy wedge;
Here, you’ll have to choose between hypoallergenic and memory foam. Hypoallergenic-filled pillows are ideal for allergic users since they resist dust mites and bacteria. Memory foam pillows give customized comforts by conforming to the contours of your body.
Ease of cleaning
This goes without saying. You need a pillow that you can keep clean. One with a removable and easily washable cover is more preferable.
If you need a wedge you can use in the living room, patio, in the car, and even in the office, then you need to consider its size.
With that, allow us to take you through the best-selling wedge pillows in our market today.
