I’ve never been a pregnancy pillow person. I just didn’t see the point in using one for such a short amount of time. For my past 2 pregnancies I always just added additional pillows. It worked for at least the first part of the night, but time and again I would always end up kicking a pillow or 2 onto the floor. Or rolling away from them.
Then something life changing happened. This Pregnancy Pillow entered my life:

I was contacted to review a pregnancy pillow and found the Butterfly Pregnancy Pillow made by Ultimate Mum. It’s the size of a normal pillow, but butterfly shaped and designed to help support your bump and back. Here’s some details from their website:
“This Pregnancy Pillow With Beautiful Butterfly Wing Design prevents rolling and discomfort for a guaranteed good night’s rest and ensures extra comfort and supports the side sleeping position, giving you optimal blood flow, as doctors recommend.
Are you longing for great comfort and support for your baby bump and for your back during your pregnancy? Look no further! This is the best transportable maternity pillow, body pillow, side sleeper pillow to have while you are pregnant, or when you are nursing your newborn baby. It offers fantastic comfort and support for your baby bump, your back, your hips and your knees – ensuring that you are comfortable throughout your pregnancy.”
You may remember I mentioned this pillow back in March. I took it with us for a weekend away and then accidentally left it at the hotel and had to spend 2 nights without it. It was terrible! I honestly love it and hate sleeping without it now. I love that it has no filling in the middle where your hip goes, yet there is pillow on your belly side and your back side. Which means when you flip over in the night, you don’t have to adjust the pillow! And because it goes under you, you can’t accidentally kick it to the floor. It is honestly so comfortable…and made in CANADA. It never bunches up and the cover material is so comfortable. It is cashmere cotton on one side and soft flannel on the other. I used the flannel side in the winter and now that it’s hot out, I’m using the cotton side. This pillow is also bacteria, dust mite, mould and mildew resistant! It’s even on sale for 15% off right now!
But that’s not all. Ultimate mum is so kind that they are going to give one of you a free Ultimate Pregnancy Pillow! This pillow supports your bump and opens your pelvic bones which reduces hip pain during pregnancy. And it can be used as a nursing pillow after your baby is born.
