The Comfort U Pillow by Moonlight Slumber cushions every angle of your aching body with soft Fusion Foss fiber. It feels soft and stays soft, but it provides support where you need it most with its classic "U" shape. This is the perfect pregnancy pillow if you want to feel like you're surrounded by a giant cloud.
Need a lift? We love the Boppy Prenatal Total Body Pillow for moms who need a little extra support to ease those tired muscles and aching joints. Firmly filled and shaped to fit your pregnant curves, this body pillow might just be your new best friend.
The Most Affordable
Let's face it, not everyone can afford a fancy pregnancy pillow, but you still have options even if you're on a budget. Sometimes you just need a little cushioning in just the right spot, and the totally affordable Boppy Pregnancy Wedge delivers. Use it to add a little extra lift while sleeping on your side, or place it between your knees to help relieve joint stress.
The Best Multipurpose
It's a maternity pillow; it's a breastfeeding pillow; it's amazing! Uniquely designed to curve completely around your body, the Leachco Back 'N Belly Contoured Body Pillow helps you lie comfortably on your side and transforms into a wraparound breastfeeding cushion after your little one arrives.
The Most Portable
Traveling while pregnant may not be the most relaxing thing in the world, but at least you can bring along a portable pregnancy pillow to make the trip a little more comfortable. While you can't stuff a full-size body pillow in your suitcase, you can fit the inflatable Pregni Pillow in your carry-on to support your body on the go.
The Most Lavish
The Cozy Comfort Pregnancy Pillow by Today's Mom gets our vote for "most lavish" because it gives you total body support. It has all the right curves, it's full, it's fluffy, and it's so comfortable to lie on that you won't even remember that you're expecting. But remember it's lavish for a reason—this large-and-in-charge pillow will totally stake its claim to your bed.
The Best for Legs
If you just need a little extra support for your knees to take the pressure off of your hips, the Boppy Cuddle Pillow and Pregnancy Bolster set is the way to go. Place the pillow just where you need it for side sleeping, then use the bolster to add additional support under your back, neck or belly. Plus, the bolster comes with a Therapearls pack that you can insert inside for added hot or cold therapy.
The Most Convertible
Tight on space? Now your pregnancy pillow can double as a co-sleeper after your baby arrives. The Family Sleeper by Humanity Organics gives you added support for your pregnant body, then turns into a mat and bumper you can attach to your bed as a co-cleeping unit. Bonus: It's made with organic cotton.
The Most Adjustable
Sometimes it feels like your belly expands overnight, doesn't it? When you need a little extra stretch in a maternity pillow, try out the Leachco Grow to Sleep Self-Adjusting Body Pillow. Not only do the stretchy elastic panels conform to your body's needs, but it's super soft and supportive at the same time.
When you're pregnant, you can feel hot even when everyone else is chilly. For the hot-blooded crew, we picked the Leachco Snoogle to keep you fully supported without making you feel like a sweaty mess. It's materials are phthalate-, latex-, lead- and BPA-free.
