"I had a bean filled v-shaped pillow which was very…"
I had a bean filled v-shaped pillow which was very long and could be squashed into different shapes. Very useful for propping me up in bed when sleeping got more uncomfortable.
After the baby was born, the beanbag pillow was really useful for breastfeeding. I would recommend these for women with bigger breasts as you can use thinner bits to put under the baby so as not to squash them!Read moreLess

"Absolutely invaluable - I bought one from Argos 11 years…"
Absolutely invaluable - I bought one from Argos 11 years ago when pg with dd1, it was still going strong when I had dd2 4 years ago and will be coming into service again soon for no.3. As a aid to comfortable sleep when pregnant, as a breastfeeding pillow and also just to support back and shoulders when sitting up in bed, this is probably one of the most used items in the house!Read moreLess
"Best gift and value for money as not only used…"
Best gift and value for money as not only used during your pregnancy but, for breast feeding and to this day, my almost 3 years old son is using it a pillow (feels a bit like a nest to him) so, yes, it is a gift that stays with you for a while:-)Read moreLess

"Lots of people say the pillows are pointless, but I…"
Lots of people say the pillows are pointless, but I love them! Fab during pregnancy for helping get to sleep in a decent position, fab breastfeeding for propping up when your nipples are sore and you need just the right angle (rugby hold is amazing with a pillow), great for wedging up newly sitting babies.
My only issue is you either have side fastening covers which unpopper all the time, or end ones which are hell to fight on.Read moreLess
"An absolute god send during pregnancy, it was the only…"
An absolute god send during pregnancy, it was the only thing that could make me sleep as it supports your bump when lying on your side. Not exactly an obvious gift but it would be well used and appreciatedRead moreLess
"These are very useful, first for supporting your bump in…"
These are very useful, first for supporting your bump in bed during pregnancy and making you generally more comfortable, then helped me get baby in a better position for breast feeding and finally was used to help support baby when first sitting up. A very useful item that doesnt cost too much.Read moreLess
"This was the best present I was bought after DD…"
This was the best present I was bought after DD was born, and I wished I'd had it while pregnant to help me sit/lie more comfortably with my dodgy pelvis and heavy belly. It would have avoided the multi-cushion mountain that I needed to stay comfy. In fact, that same mountain was in use to try to breastfeed in semi-comfort after a caesarean and I loved my new V cushion for alleviating me of the need for all of them. I think mine was an Argos one, and it could have done with more filling as I did need to prop it up for feeding with an extra cushion when DD was very small. It came everywhere with me...
(Great for using as a lap tray too for dinner in front of the TV!)Read moreLess

I got mine from Mothercare as a birthday present while I was pregnant with my first and I'm still using it now (to read my book in bed!) and that's 6yrs on! A very versatile pillow, good present!Read moreLess
"This was the gift I got the most use from…"
This was the gift I got the most use from during both pregnancy and breast feeding. I used it in the last stage of pregnancy between my legs and around my bump in bed and while breastfeeding afterwards. I also used it for the first few weeks after birth in bed to get comfortable.
I highly recommend buying one.Read moreLess

"I wouldn't be without mine, I used it to help…"
I wouldn't be without mine, I used it to help me sleep more comfortably whilst pregnant and then as a breastfeeding cushion later on. I got a cheap one from argos and made some extra covers for it. They're great for when babies can sit by themselves but are still a bit wobbly, pop them inside the V and you are virtually guaranteed a soft landing!Read moreLess

"Having used these myself, I bought one for a pregnant…"
Having used these myself, I bought one for a pregnant friend. she says it was the best thing anyone bought her as she used it all through her pregnancy to support her bump in bed, and then for breastfeeding afterwards; for the baby to lie on when small and as a back support in bed when older. They can also be used to prop the baby up when they are old enough.Read moreLess

Absolutely brilliant. My sister-in-law lent me hers. It was a great boon for early breast feeding and I used it to lie my baby on. If you push the V together you get a a divet shape to hold a new born securely on the sofa.Read moreLess

"I got a cheap one from argos which came with…"
I got a cheap one from argos which came with a washable cover a few years ago when i was pregnant with my first child and found it very useful. I used it in late pregnancy to support my bump whilst i was asleep. I found it great for breastfeeding and its good to use to prop yourself up in bed to read a book. I also use it along the edge of my bed to stop my baby rolling about too much as i co-sleep with him. Im still using it now after my 2nd child, it was a great buy.Read moreLess
"Tchibo 'breastfeeding' pillow. The packaging shows a bottle feeding mum…"
Tchibo 'breastfeeding' pillow. The packaging shows a bottle feeding mum feeding her baby while resting on this breastfeeding pillow. It's got polystyrene beads inside which allegedly provide good support to the baby.
It's utterly rubbish, the beads move away from the baby so your baby just sags in a hole. It's only redeeming feature is the nice blue cover with little flowers on.Read moreLess

Fantastic gift for pregnant mums - makes it so much easier to get a good nights sleep and its so comfy we kept in in bed after the birth as well!Read moreLess
"I love mine! I used it during pregnancy to prop…"
I love mine! I used it during pregnancy to prop me up on the sofa, or in bed while relaxing (no chance of getting to loll in bed now my daughter's here though!), and found it gave just enough support to make things more comfortable. Although breastfeeding didn't work out for us, my husband used the pillow to support and raise her head and body when bottlefeeding her, and found it really helpful. We also used it as a support when our daughter was learning to sit up on her own. If you're not sure what to get a pregnant friend, you can't go wrong with one of these!Read moreLess

Best gift I was given ! I used it towards the end of my pregnancy a lot and it helped when I was sitting watching tv or relaxing with a book ! Would highly recommend buying this as a gift for mum-to-be !Read moreLess
"Absolutely essential during pregnancy, breastfeeding and beyond - especially if…"
Absolutely essential during pregnancy, breastfeeding and beyond - especially if you have got spd - you can sleep with it between your legs, use it to feed on, put it in the middle of the bed to stop you rolling onto co-sleeping baby and then when they're sitting up you can plonk it behind the baby in case they fall backwards.
You can buy them from most of the usual online shops - and get lots of different covers - my los have loved the fleecy covers when newborn.Read moreLess

The one essential above all else! When pregnant it's great for propping yourself up in bed - then when the baby's born it's brilliant for breastfeeding, and later helping the baby to sit up.Read moreLess
"What can I say except beg, borrow or steal to…"
What can I say except beg, borrow or steal to get yourself one of these. At first I was sceptical as I have many, many pillows but a big V shaped one will become your new best friend (and practically your boyfriend from the positions you will get it in!). I had bad SPD to the extent that being in bed was unbearable but it was made so much better by my new friend Pillow. Once ds was here, it was practically attatched to my lap as I used it to give my arms a rest from the constant feeding, and I also used it to shove down the gap between the bed and the wall to stop ds falling out (sorry Pillow). Now I use it to prop him up when he is playing. They can be expensive, and I'd recommend buying a beanbag type one rather than one filled with fluff but you can pick them up cheap (a friend got one at an NCT sale for a quid) and if any of my friends get pregnant this is what I will buy them, as it is useful for such a long time.Read moreLess
"I could not live without it. To breastfeed, it was…"
I could not live without it. To breastfeed, it was vital; to prop her up when learning to sit up, it would have been impossible without the pillow. To tuck her in on my lap near my breasts in those hard nights when she would not let me put her in the cot to sleep...she is now 2 and I still use it for my lower back ache and to rock her at night in the rocking chair whilst reading her a story. Very useful piece of kit. Get yourself one.Read moreLess

Great value for money making an excellent gift. Useful both during pregnancy and after the birth.Read moreLess
"So useful both before and after the birth. In later…"
So useful both before and after the birth. In later pregnancy Mum can sleep curled around it to ease pressures on her tum. After it's perfect for positioning baby to breast feed easily. when baby begins to sit up, you can put her in the angle of the v and the sides will protect her precious head when she wobbles over.Read moreLess

One of the best gifts that I have been given. It has so many uses and made me feel comfy wherever I was. Perfect for the 'sleepy' phase of pregnancy as it helps you to get comfortable anywhere. It it also very useful as a support whilst breastfeeding and supports baby when they are starting to sit up. My four year old often asks for the 'cuddle me' pillow to have a rest.Read moreLess

I bought a pillow from a quality market stall and made my own covers from children's material. I found the pillow so useful both during pregnancy and afterwards for breastfeeding. It was then used to prop the baby up when they were attempting to sit up by themselves. It was a small outlay but a real useful item to have.Read moreLess

I got one from Argos for £5 which is excellent value for money. The pillow is large enough to also use alongside your body in bed to cushion your legs. comes complete with cover. The quality is not as good as more expensive branded ones but it fits the purpose.Read moreLess
