Pregnancy pillows

Want to buy a pillow to make it more comfortable to sleep on my side and make me less likely to roll onto my back when I'm sleeping.

Is I worth me spending the extra money on something like this [http://www.mothercare.com/Dreamgenii-Pregnancy-And-Feeding-Support-Pillow/933928,default,pd.html?cm_sp=ProductFeatures-_-Category%2520landing-_-Dreamgenii%2520Pregnancy%2520And%2520Feeding%2520Support%2520Pillow&q=Pillow]

Or will something cheaper like this do [http://www.duvetandpillowwarehouse.co.uk/product/Body-Pillow-With-Pillowcase/pc/PP6--B]

Go for the more expensive option, you will find the wrap around feature useful now but also if u decide to breastfeed. I use mine all the time!

I have a dream genii, and I do like it very much. It stops you rolling onto your back which other pregnancy pillows don't.

I did get it much cheaper than that though (about 3 years ago) so I can see why you'd be loathe to shell out so much.

You can actually get the same effect as a dream genii if you have a soft thin feather pillow which you can sort of flatten in the middle, to support your back and bump. Then use another between your knees. Also saves on buying silly fiddly pillowcases.

Thanks for the replies! Decided to splash out on the Dreamgenii as looks like if I breast feed (as I hope to) it will be useful then too. Went into the new Kiddicare store in Nottingham to pick one up this afternoon and it looks great so looking forward to bed tonight! Bit shocked after my first ever visit to Kiddicare though - that place is crazy grin
