User Reviews and Usage Guidelines
Users agree that this maternity pillow has been a lifesaver during their third trimester of pregnancy especially in the relief of back pain, hip pain and tummy pain. Most also agree that it is even perfect to use after pregnancy as the woman nurses his infant and recovers from delivery.
The Leachco Snoogle Total Body Pillow is used in a variety of manner. The pregnant woman may place the upper end of the pillow on her head and the long part on her back and the end part in between her legs. The pillow may also become a cradle with the upper part at the back and the lower part underneath her thighs. The mother lies on her side as she feeds her infant. The mother should avoid falling asleep as she cares for her baby while lying on the bed with or without the pillow since this could lead to suffocation and even death.
