These pillows are another item I wish was available when I was pregnant with my 3 children. There are so many things that have been developed in the 20 years since my youngest was born.
I have fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions. A physical therapist I saw said I would sleep better if my body was supported by pillows. What she showed me took 5 or 6 pillows to completely support everything.
I would never get to sleep if I had to keep making sure every pillow was correct. I decided to try a body pillow. I bought the 65 inch one and put the U section at my feet. I have a regular pillow that helps me sleep without getting headaches that I wanted to keep using. I have bad arthritis in my feet and having the U section at the bottom allows me to lay my feet on top of the pillow at comfortable spots which change throughout the night. Even though the pillow is not heavy, my feet hurt when they are under a sheet.
I use half the pillow to support my back and the other half to support my upper body and go between my legs. That way I don't have to use 6 pillows to support myself. I'm sleeping much better. And I don't keep my husband awake trying to keep so many pillows in place.
