A great travel pillow, but if you’re having hip or leg problems, you’re better off with the full Dreamgenii Maternity Support Pillow
NOTE : No longer available so go for the more supportive, full pillow Dreamgenii Maternity Support Pillow , or the super-soft Kally Body Pillow instead.
There a quite a few support pillows that promise to offer a good night’s sleep, whilst supporting your bump, but not all live up to their billing, which is why the Dreamgenii pillows are in high demand, even though they’re a bit pricey. The alternative to paying £45 for the wholly supportive Dreamgenii Maternity Support Pillow, is to go for this, the Dreamgenii Lite, which promises bump support without the larger price tag.
Billed as a travel alternative to the full pillow, this consists of a simple hypo-allergenic pillow with a ridge at either side to offer you some bump support, whichever side you lie on. It comes in a lot cheaper than the full Dreamgenii at £24.99, and still prevents you from rolling onto your back. It’s obviously a lot smaller too, which means if you’re travelling somewhere with a smaller bed than you’re used to, it’s a good solution. It also leaves more space in your suitcase for shoes, which I found extremely helpful!
The only issue for me was that, whilst the Lite version offers really good bump support, it didn’t solve my pregnancy hip and leg issues, and I much preferred the fully supportive option. Of course if you’re just in need of some support for your bump, this is very cost effective for the support it provides.
