A Doula’s Top 3 Products For A Better Nights Sleep

with No Comments

Oh, the woes of pregnancy sleep.

Let’s face it. While pregnancy can be a time of excitement and joy, it can also be a time of lack of sleep. As your baby grows, often your inability to catch a good night’s sleep increases with it.

The joys of pregnancy often include night sweats, backaches, heartburn, and swollen feet. These common pregnancy complaints can often stand in the way of a full nights sleep.

Thankfully our work with pregnant families has led us to discover the most popular items to combat these common complaints.  Let’s take a look at our top 3 below!

#1 The Perfect Pregnancy Pillow

As your bump begins to grow the added weight of your uterus and your baby starts to place stress on the muscles in your lower back. Your uterine ligaments also begin to stretch and with this can come the dreaded round ligament pain. So when it comes to pregnancy pillow support, our client’s love to go 360 degrees.  The Leachco Back ‘N Belly Pregnancy/Maternity Contoured Body Pillow is one of our client’s favorite pregnancy pillows. So much so that they often bring them to the hospital to use in labor!

This pregnancy pillow allows for complete back and belly support throughout your entire pregnancy!

#2 The Best Sleep Bra Around

As your breasts grow throughout your pregnancy, it’s hard to find a sleep bra that offers both support and comfort. Our favorite is the Gilligan & O’Malley Nursing Seamless Bra which is not only super comfortable but super affordable as well. This sleep bra gives support, breathability and has a bit of stretch that allows some room to grow. Our clients recommend that you buy a size larger than usual to accommodate your breasts for nursing once your milk comes in.

#3 The Best Pregnancy Pajamas Ever

Finding comfortable pajamas for your growing bump can be a struggle. You want something super soft, ultra comfortable and most of all breathable. Look no further than the Zexxxy Women Ultra Soft Maternity and Nursing Pajama set! This ultra-comfy set comes in 7 colors and has two types of waistbands to choose from to accommodate your growing bump. The criss-cross design of the top allows for easy and discreet nursing. These tops and pants are also super comfortable for labor. We recommend black when used for birth
