Pregnancy pillow recommendations please :)

I just do not have it in me to read all the comparison articles and decide which pillow might be best Blush My last pregnancy I got a Precious Little Ones pregnancy pillow, just a long straight one, and it was way too soft/flat, had to double it over.

Any recommendations for a nice, firm, cocoon-like pillow? I was looking at the DreamGenii one because I like the pretty covers , but apparently it's very soft.

Mine is from Amazon (Lancashire Textiles is the make I believe). It's so comfortable! I don't think I can go back to life without it

I had a dream genii with dd1 but this time I'm using a soak and sleep full body pillow which is just bliss - like sleeping/cuddling a giant marshmallow. It's very supportive for bump and spd I'm 33 weeks now and had it all way through.

I have one from mamas and papas that I really like used it for about 10 weeks or so.. but also liked the look of the DreamGenii it went on offer so I got it.
I hate it!
I find it really annoying to get up to use the loo in the middle of the night, then to get back into the the middle of it when getting back into bed.
I went back to old one and love it still. Think I like that it comes up higher and I kinda hug it.
But I know some people love the DreamGenii but it wasn't for me at all.

I loved my dream genii, and it seems to be on offer quite often!

Kit for Kids Cloud Cuddle Me Pillow

I bought this as I didn't want to spend a fortune in case it was crap! It's pretty good though, enough to support the bump at 25 weeks, between the legs and can go under the head if you want as well.

The Boppy wedge pillow is fantastic for putting under your bump or between your legs in mid to late pregnancy. I also bought a Leachco compact sleeper (can also buy a regular size) which is a bit like a dream genii pillow buy cheaper and more versatile. This has been fantastic for me as use it in a doughnut shape for sitting up in bed and under my bump/between knees for sleeping. Can't do without it now at 33 weeks!

I love my Dream Genii Smile

I had a dream genii which I nicknamed Phillip. He was a delightful snuggle buddy.

I've got dodgy hips and knees (hypermobile) so I bought a decent bolster pillow pre-pregnancy and have just moulded it around the bump or under the bump as my shape has changed. The one below is now about two years old and still provides great support.

I found the Dream Genii to be too small - I like a proper pillow to hug and to support my knees and hips. DH isn't as keen Grin

Oh fab, thanks for the recommendations! I think realistically I'll have to actually go to a shop and have a feel of a few. I'm wide of hip so maybe that's why I feel the need for a fatter pillow. Going to check out all the links you provided now :)

I'm not keen on the Dream Genii. I start off the night using it but jettison it after a couple of hours.

I've got this one off Amazon (not sure how to upload link but if you search pregnancy pillow it comes up) it's so comfy and has helped me a lot. Highly recommend it, costs around £22.
