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.
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!
However, I am now in the eighth month, and my belly is large enough that most of it rests on the mattress when I sleep on my sides. The wedge is now too thick and firm for comfort and I have not used it in the past few weeks. Something that might make it better would be if there were 2 wedges inside the cover to make the thickness adjustable.
Overall a great pregnancy pillow for the early stages of pregnancy and when I had a smaller belly bump, but not so great once my belly grew larger.
Wow. What a difference it has made to both my wife and baby to be. My wife now finds that her back is better aligned and that the baby no longer 'drops' towards the mattress. Also, not only does she sleep better at night, but she also uses the wedge when lying on the sofa. She doean't go anywhere in the house without it now!
It has a removable outer cover so it can be washed. I'm not so keen on the color scheme but hey it's going to be used in bed - it's not meant to be a fashion accessory! It also comes in a stiff plastic bag that can be used for other things (store baby's bath toys etc).
Such a simple idea yet an effective one. Do your wife (or yourself) a favor and get this wedge.
--Inexpensive. Many other maternity pillows cost several times more, but this is inexpensive enough to try as an experiment. If you don't like it, you're not out much.
--Easily rearranged in bed. When I flip from side to side half-asleep, it's easy to grab the wedge and move it, too.
--Not too big. Our king-size is getting crowded with my huge belly, so having a small pillow is certainly an advantage for leaving my husband some room to sleep.
--Works also as a bit of lumbar support when I'm sitting up reading in bed.
--It's a little hard, so it doesn't always conform quite right to my belly when side-sleeping. This is especially true now with two large babies who love to kick & rearrange their bodies at night. There are some positions that our twins get into where the Boppy Wedge actually makes things feel worse by adding unnecessary pressure.
--Hard to fit a pillow case to it (unless you want to sew something yourself), but at least the outer case is removable/washable.
--Sometimes, the height of the wedge is just a bit too much, causing me to want to roll onto my back.
Overall, if you're having a hard time sleeping, the Boppy Wedge is worth trying. It isn't perfect, but I still use it every night. And, I can imagine it may come in handy even after our twins are born.
