Pregnancy Sleep | Leachco Snoogle Total Body Pillow REVIEW
In my other articles I speak a lot about the importance of getting good quality sleep and this is even more true in the case of soon to be mothers as they are living and breathing for 2 people and it is crucial for both the mother and the little baby to get as good a sleep as possible. In this article I give advice and tips for quality sleep and also make a review of Leachco Snoogle Total Body Pillow, which is really worth checking out for all future mothers.
Poor Pregnancy Sleep due to Lower Back Pain
Some pregnant women suffer from lower back pain. A good solution for this is to tuck your pillow between your legs (knees) which will give support for the lower back and allow for a very comfortable and pleasant side sleeping position.
Damaged Sleep due to Heartburn
Those who suffer from heartburn can try to find relief by elevating their head slightly higher than the rest of the body. You can do this either using a pillow or elevating the actual mattress or the bed itself. For the mattress you can place something (for example some cloths or bed sheets you rarely use) just below the top part under the mattress.
Tips to Improve Pregnancy Sleep
Keep yourself well hydrated during the day, but careful about drinking a lot near bed time as it could wake you up for the bathroom
Avoid spicy foods, acidic foods or fried foods because they increase the chances and the severity of heartburn
Stay away from caffeine (coffee, energy drinks, strong tees) and alcohol as they can cause insomnia
Do go out and get some fresh air during the day; refrain from being lazy at home all day in front of TV or the computer
Try not to worry about things out of your control or things you can not fix today, because the thoughts will keep you awake at night
Be disciplined about the time when you go to sleep because this generates a habit which makes it easier for you to sleep well every day. On the opposite side if you go to bed at different times all the time you are disrupting your natural body clock.

This body pillow really surprised me when I first saw it and started doing research about it. It has a gigantic amount of reviews written by buyers on Amazon. 659 people wrote reviews when most other products struggle to have even 20 reviews.
And what is even more surprising is that more than half – 364 people gave it a 5 star rating with another 182 people giving it a 4 star rating. So what kind of a pillow is this that the vast majority of so many buyers have given it thumbs up? Let’s look at what people said about it (3 extracts):

“purchased this pillow when I was 19 wks, currently I am 23 wks and I absolutely love SNOOGLE. I sleep all through the night now. My hip and lower back pain and knee/leg pain are gone”
“I purchased it when I was 4 months pregnant… I take it with me when we are on vacation… My back feels great!… I will be using it long after the birth of my child!”
I’m 17 weeks pregnant and was in agony every night… Last night, my first night using it, I had the best sleep I’ve had in weeks… My back didn’t hurt this morning, neither did my neck”
Naturally there are also negative comments for Leachco Snoogle Total Body Pillow. For example I found those who said that the pillow was too firm for them or that it was cumbersome, which are all valid points and I suppose a pillow is something that it can not please absolutely everyone, but what reassures me in the positive direction is the numbers. Only 26 out of 659 people rates this pillow 1 star, which makes it 4% of all the buyers compared to the 364 who rated it 5 star which is 55% of the buyers.
So from that I could conclude that while 4% of the people did not enjoy the pillow the vast majority of the people who purchased it found it very nice for their pregnancy and sleep quality (4 and 5 stars together make 83% of all the people).

I also did some research in the forums and found a partly funny discussion about the pillow. One lady who was having a hip and back pain was asking advice about what type of pillow she should get and one of the replies was favoring the Leachco Snoogle Total Body Pillow saying “and LOVED it!” and adding that her husband thought that this pillow is anti social because she was so nicely and comfortably wrapped in it that he was unable to get some quality snuggling time 🙂 Another lady also added that “it is a blessing to have! even though it is expensive”, but $45 I didn’t find to be so expensive for this.
