Often, the picture that comes to mind when you hear of body pillows is those huge C-shape pillows pregnant women use. While those count, body pillows come in other forms as well, and their job is to help you achieve better sleep.
The key ingredient to fast and good quality sleep is comfort. This means body alignment, proper sleeping posture, support where you need it, and joint pressure relief. Nothing can accomplish this better than a good body pillow.
But body pillows come in many sizes, shapes, materials, prices, and other features, making it really hard to choose just one. If you have a king-size bed and are looking for a good pillow to snuggle with, we have just the recommendations for you.
Tips for Better Sleep During Pregnancy
In order to sleep better during pregnancy, you should practice good sleep hygiene, take supplements, and sleep in a comfortable position.
- Set up a bedtime routine that includes yoga or meditation, a bath, a book, dimmed lights, a lavender diffuser, and a white noise machine.
- It is possible to relieve the symptoms of restless leg syndrome and leg cramps by taking mineral supplements prescribed by your doctor.
- Don’t eat heavy meals or spicy foods just before bedtime. Allow your body to digest the last meal of the day easily, and avoid heartburn.
- When pregnant, it is recommended to sleep on your side, which is not natural for many women. Therefore, use a pregnancy pillow to position yourself comfortably during the night.
