Product Review– Utterly Yours Breast Pillow and Pregnancy Pillow

Bookmark and Share

This fall I spoke at the Lamaze International annual conference in Kentucky. It was an amazing opportunity to meet people from all over the country who devote their lives to helping women and babies. While I was there, I meet a mom who invented the Utterly Yours Breast Pillow and the Utterly Yours Pregnancy Pillow.

The breast pillow was designed for larger breasted women (or anyone fighting the pull of gravity) who sometimes feel like they have to hold their breast up in order for their baby to feed. You position the pillow under your breast for a little boost. It comes in different sizes.
As for the pregnancy pillow, what woman doesn’t experience some discomfort trying to sleep when she’s pregnant? Personally, I found the pain in my hips excruciating. Well, this pillow gives support to both your back and your stomach, and it folds up into a nice neat box when you aren’t using it. This, too, comes in multiple sizes.
Since my baby days are over, I didn’t have a chance to test these pillows. But my gut tells me they may be worth a try. To see how these products work, watch this video.

The breast pillow would be useless to me (my breasts are so small they have nowhere to go but up) but I can see how it would help larger breasted women. I would definitely consider buying the pregnancy support pillow though. I had such a hard time staying on my side, because my husband would move in the night and I’d shift and wake up on my back. It was an awful feeling, especially as I got bigger, and I know it wasn’t good for the baby. And how cute that it folds into a little decorative cube!

My breasts aren’t large enough to warrant the nursing pillow, but the pregnancy pillow sounds heavenly. I love that you can fold it up and take it with you on trips and it doesn’t have to clutter up your bed in the daytime. Smart!

Oh, those pillows sound great! The portability is a big plus, too. My huge snoogle pillow was indispensable during late pregnancy, but it was a huge pain to bring it with me whenever we went away for the night.

I just used my hand to support my breast :) but I could see how having another hand free would have been nice!
But the pregnancy pillow — I so want to give it a try next time around! My back and hips still haven’t recovered, 17 months later, and I can only sleep comfortably on my side with three pillows tucked around for support. Never mind — apparently I should get it now! Thanks for the heads-up.

That sounds so nice! I’m going to look at the descriptions and video now. Thank you for sharing!

I have just mentioned this pillow in my recently posted article “What you need to know when you are 13 to 16 weeks pregnant”! Read my article at: http://fromwomb2birth.blogspot.com/2010/06/what-you-need-to-know-when-you-are-13.html
