The Leachco Snoogle Total Body pillow is the #1 best-selling pregnancy pillow with more than 2,000 reviews and a rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars. Affordably priced, this is one of the first maternity products that moms should consider.
The unique design allows for added support for the hips, neck, back and belly. The design was patented and developed by a registered nurse and mom, so you know that it was definitely designed with mom’s needs in mind.
The Snoogle offers excellent back support and can be tucked between your knees to offer lower back pain relief. The pillow also helps keep your head propped up so you can breathe easy at night and avoid having to deal with pregnancy heartburn.
The best part? Snoogle’s cover can be removed and washed in the washing machine. This is a maternity product that every mom-to-be should have.
The product features a soft white exterior and 100% polyester filling. The oversized pillow is 20” wide and 130” long. This is a long straight one that you can bend into a U-shape, or any other shape that feels comfortable for you.
The ability to bend and contort it any which way you please allows you to find a comfortable position that works for your own body type and shape.
The second Leachco product on our list, the mini side sleeper is a compact version of the Snoogle total body pillow. It offers targeted support during pregnancy and can also be used post-pregnancy as a nursing pillow.
By design, the product naturally conforms to your body’s own unique shape, aligning your hips and keeping a neutral position while you sleep.
The compact Snoogle side sleeper comes in two colors: Sage/white dot and brown. Its cover is washable and removable, so you can keep your Snoogle in good condition throughout several pregnancies.
The unique c-shaped design provides that extra support you need for your hips, tummy and back. It also allows you to use it in a variety of positions.
The Chic total body pillow features a 60% cotton/40% polyester zippered knit cover that’s machine washable and easily removed. This is a great product for moms that need a versatile pillow and extra hip support.
It features a unique U-shape that conforms to mom’s shape and provides extra support in key areas, like the back and belly. The “legs” of the pillow can be positioned any which way you please for the utmost in comfort.
This is a large product, but it does provide the full body support that pregnant moms need to enjoy a restful night’s sleep. Although this one is priced higher than others on the list, its superior comfort and curved design make it one of our top picks.
At 60” long and 35” wide, this is a large product that offers complete support for your entire body. If you’re on the short side, you may find yourself completely enveloped in this one.
The U-shaped design offers superior support for your back, hips and belly. The design also elevates the head, alleviating heartburn and nasal congestion.
As one of the most affordable products on our list, this is a product that’s hard to pass up.
Many maternity pillows are bulky and heavy, making it difficult or impossible to switch positions at night. This issue is all but eliminated with the KHOMO product.
The reason why this one didn’t come up higher on our list is because some customers wound up with flat pillows. This wasn’t a common complaint, but still something to be aware of before buying. This one is available in both white and brown colors.
Moonlight Slumber’s Comfort U Total Body Support Pillow is the most expensive product on our list, but it’s also one of the most comfortable. This is a product that you can use long after your pregnancy and can be contorted into just about any shape you can imagine.
It offers full body support and molds to your body’s own unique shape. Use it for added support when watching TV, or cuddle it at night for complete side support.
This one is filled with Fusion Fiber, which is completely hypoallergenic. In total, it is 68” long, 15” wide and a 16” diameter. The extended size allows for complete support for your back, hips, neck and shoulders.
Although with a higher price, this is a quality product that will provide you with comfort throughout your entire pregnancy.
The Boppy Custom Fit Total Body Pillow was created by a physical therapist. It features a three-piece design that provides you with support in the areas you need it most, including the neck, back, tummy, hip, legs and ankles.
The product is machine washable, which is definitely a plus for moms.
While we love the design and comfort level of this product, the fact that it’s separated into three pieces was a concern. So many moms love this one, but we thought the separate pieces were a little inconvenient.
On the other hand, having separate pieces allows you to truly customize the pillow’s support. We recommend this one for moms who need extra support in certain areas.
It’s a compact and portable pillow that allows you to gain extra support where you need it most.
After pregnancy, the pillow can still be used. The contoured sides help prevent your baby from rolling off it, and the quilted vinyl is water-resistant. This is a great maternity wedge for moms on a budget.
