TMC Review: Bbhugme, the ultimate pregnancy pillow
Whether it's your first, third, or fifteenth pregnancy, the one piece of advice you will hear from just about EVERYONE is 'Sleep', 'Get as much sleep as you can, because when that baby is here...' etc. And, most pregnant women will know that this is just about the most annoying piece of advice to receive. Mainly because despite us being whole heartily aware that it is correct we do need to sleep whilst we can, before the all nighters, doing it whilst pregnant is really really difficult. As you grow you become more and more uncomfortable and pillows is your only saving grace. Pillows in their hundreds. Between us we have clocked up the number, trying every pregnancy pillow possible to purchase. Which brings us onto bbhugme.
The pregnancy pillow of choice or 'The boyfriend' as we have come to know it as, provides support everywhere that is needed for a better night sleep.
The creators of the bbhugme spared no expense when it came to research on their high tech design, and it shows. It has been developed by three female Norwegian chiropractors, their aim was to create a product that would help prevent back or pelvic pain during pregnancy, and neck and shoulder strain when nursing. It uses natural, antibacterial ESP pebbles, a bit like a bean-bag, to mould around your body and avoid overheating. Incredibly light and cool, we really like how adaptable this pillow is. It’s a good size and easy to shape and adjust the firmness to your preference by tightening or loosening the outer cover with the pebbles provided.
Then once the pregnancy journey is over, and we have our bodies back, the pillow becomes a fab nursing pillow and a sleep and resting place for babies, or even us tired mummies.
Jess on her current twin pregnancy :
'Since being pregnant with twins I has found a whole new array of pains and strains that never caused much damage in my past one baby pregnancies, my back takes more strain, my hips are constantly causing me grief and thats just the beginning. Either side I lie there is a baby selfishly taking up all the room, if I lie on my back I will probably vomit, so what is left? Being propped up by four thousand pillows only to readjust all said pillows every time I roll over. I have tried cheap pillows, expensive pillows, fat pillows and thin pillows and I have yet to be blown away by any, ..until the bbhugme. Its bigger than most I have tried, the bean bag style is perfect to mould around your growing body and unlike normal pillows you never get the thinning worn areas. I also love the fact it doesn't become completely useless once babies arrive. So many people have got in touch to let me know a feeding pillow is really handy when it comes to feeding both twins myself. The BBHugme can work as a feeding pillow by changing the pebble clips, meaning I don't have to fork out another small fortune once babies arrive for more pillows. '
The bbhugme gets our vote!
