With the new baby on the way, you’re going to need a good body pillow to help prevent cramping and help keep you warm.
But while the new pillow cover will definitely help, there are a lot of factors that need to be considered.
Here’s how to determine the best body pillow for your newborn.1.
Weight:Weighting the body pillow can help keep the body from over-heating, which is why it’s important to weigh the pillow.
The more your body weight, the more the pillow can absorb heat, and the less it can overheat.
The body pillow is more likely to absorb heat if it is lightweight and has a soft feel.
If your body pillow feels heavy, the pillow may not offer the support your baby needs to sleep soundly.2.
Shape:Body pillow shapes and sizes can vary a lot.
You may want to choose a soft, smooth or pillows with the least amount of padding.
For babies born in the first few months, the body pillows that have the smallest amount of cushioning can also be the best.3.
Diameter:The width of your pillow can also make a difference.
You can choose a pillow that has a large diameter, such as the Pulsing Body Pillow, and then choose a smaller size, such a Medium or Small.4.
Length:Length is a key factor to consider for body pillow design.
The longer the pillow, the softer the pillow will feel.
You also want to avoid a pillow with too much cushioning, which can make the pillow too tight.5.
Size:When it comes to size, there’s no one size fits all.
You should choose a body pillow that fits snugly and comfortably, with the widest possible width.6.
Thickness:The thickness of your body pillow is another important factor to think about.
A thick body pillow will give you a more firm mattress, but you may also feel like it’s too soft.7.
Shape, depth, color:When you’re selecting a body pill, the size, shape, color, and thickness will all have an impact on how your baby sleeps.
