Honestly love my belly bean! Sleeping is so easy pregnant with the belly bean!
I am 20 weeks pregnant and sleeping was so uncomfortable with out the belly bean! Now just looking at the belly bean makes me happy! I can’t go to be with out it! I have taken the belly bean traveling and I just it every night! I have washed it once and the belly bean is so easy to wash and the quality of the material is really great. I would love to recommend this product to any pregnant woman! 10/10

Best pregnancy pillow ever
I used my pillow since early pregnancy as I was carrying twins, it made a whole difference in my sleeping. Loved the front and back support. I used it after giving birth too.
A pregnancy must
Highly recommend this product. This was perfect for keeping my heavy belly supported and comfortable while moving from side to side in the night. Have used for 2 pregnancies and could not sleep without it.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I am usually a back and tummy sleeper. I was getting a very sore back very early on (about 18 weeks) and struggled staying on my side while sleeping. After using the bellybean for one night my sore back disappeared and I was able to sleep without worrying about rolling onto my back. I absolutely love it! I wish I had bought it much earlier even before the bump really appeared. Worth ever dollar!

Not good for me & no return policy.
I used it for 1 night and it left me very sore the next day. The back part felt like it was putting more pressure on my tummy due to the amount of filling both sides. Very expensive for what it is. I called but they will not accept returns which isna shame.

Did not work for me at all
I bought this as an alternative to a huge maternity pillow and honestly found it to be awful. I was only 6 months when it arrived and I felt like it crushed me in between the two pillows and even when I tried using it behind my back just so I didn't roll it gave me a huge backache. Too small to use between my legs (kept slipping away). All around very expensive and didn't work for me at all.

Good nursing pillow
I didn’t find the Bellybean to be a comfortable pregnancy pillow but it’s been a great nursing pillow. I lay it across my lap when breastfeeding to support baby’s hips on one side and my elbow on the other.

Great product, highly recommend it.
I usually sleep on my back or tummy and was really struggling with sleeping on my side from about 18 weeks pregnant. I'd often wake up in a lot of pain and had restless sleeps. I didn't like any of the other maternity pillows as they are so big and take up so much space. I found belly bean while desperately googling pillow options and have been using it for 2 weeks now and it has already made a huge difference. It stops me from rolling on my back by accident and I find it really supports me and I have slept the whole night without waking up in ...pain and discomfort which is amazing. It's also really easy to roll from side to side and is very soft and high quality and I love that it's made in Australia. Thank you for such a great product, it has helped me so much. My only point of feedback that other's mentioned is not having such large writing on it. If not for that, I think I'd consider just chucking it on the couch after pregnancy to use as a cushion as I really like the colour and softness!

I am generally a back sleeper and found it hard to stay on my side when I was pregnant. The Belly Bean Maternity Pillow was amazing with helping me stay on my side, in comfort. As the months went by and I got bigger, the pillow tucked perfectly under my belly and behind my back, allowing me to be more comfortable and to sleep better. It was a lifesaver!!
Once I had my baby, I used the Belly Bean Maternity pillow for assistance with feeding and resting my little one as he fell asleep in my arms.

I was recommended the belly bean by a friend who used it in both of her pregnancies. Ive been using mine for about 2 months and I love it!
I’m usually a belly sleeper and it has definitely stopped me rolling onto both my belly and my back!
It supports my bump beautifully and is so soft and comfortable I often forget it is there.
After a solid 6 weeks of using it I stayed at my husbands parents house for the weekend and forgot to pack my belly bean - big mistake, that was the worst sleep I had in months!
It’s much smaller than the bulky pregnancy pillows so takes us barely any room in the bed.
Will recommend the belly bean to all my future pregnant friends :)

This pillow has been a game changer for me. I started out with one of those big body pillows & it was just so bulky I could never get comfortable. The bellybean is nice and small & cradles my pregnant body front and back perfectly! I love how it suppprts my back aswell. Cannot fault it.
DO NOT BUY
I bought this pillow based on the claims made online. However two specific reasons why i regret it now. Firstly their shipping rate is over the top, for a business that is selling online it is crazy that you have to pay $14 for shipping such a light item. Secondly the owner/customer service representative([Name Removed]) is so rude and gives out unsolicited medical advice when i asked if i could return the pillow. Based on the claims made on their website this was supposed to help me sleep better, but when it didn’t (in fact it gave me horrible...back pain) and I contacted customer service He went on and on about how my body was out of alignment and that there was nothing wrong with the pillow and that I should go see an osteopath etc. It’s a standard size pillow so it’s to be expected that it will not work for everyone. You think you are getting a premium product when you read the information on their website, but I can honestly say after using the pillow it didn’t help me sleep better and it can’t be used as a nursing pillow. Don’t waste your money, there are other infinity pillows out there that have much better customer service and 100% satisfaction guarantees.

Doesn't prevent rolling onto my back
33 weeks now and have been using nightly since 29 weeks. I have been lucky to not have had any pain or discomfort anywhere in my body. The only reason for purchase was to encourage side sleeping as I kept rolling onto my back. Unfortunately I still roll onto my back. I think the gap is too big so I put an extra wedge pillow in there but I still manage to roll onto my back. Also, I have to get comfy by putting a euro pillow in between my legs to keep the pelvis/knees supported. On the plus side, I do notice the support for my belly but I was ...already getting that from a basic wedge pillow. I have been known to spin and kick 90-180 degrees at night, so one big advantage is that the bellybean keeps me exclusively within the boundaries of the pillow on my side of the bed. So even though I still roll onto my back, the partner is happy to not get kicked in the legs/abdomen/head anymore and for that reason alone I would continue to use even after giving birth. I wouldn't re-purchase or recommend however, because ultimately it didn't address my specific needs.

Not what I hoped for
I like the idea of this pillow, but it just hasn't been very effective for and I am no thinking of buy another pillow. I am 26 weeks and have been using it on and off for 2 months.
Positives are it is small and I don't have to rotate it during the night. It supports my stomach and helps to prevent rolling into my back.
I have started using it every night for the above reasons but every morning I now wake up with back pain which don't get if I slept without the pillow.
I don't know if I'm not using it properly or if it is just not supportive enough for me but it's not comfortable.

Much easier to turn over
It has helped with my hip/ back pain & it is much easier to turn over in the night using this rather than the other pregnancy pillow I have but I still need to put a pillow between my knees in addition to this. It does help me to stay on my side, I do occasionally wake up half on my side/ my back but much less than when using the other pillow. I bought mine second hand for $30 & wouldn't want to spend more than that on my bellybean.

How did I live without my Bellybean before?! It made night time super comfy during pregnancy, and now my baby is 3 months old, and I still sleep with my Bellybean every single night!

Unhappy and uncomfortable
I found it to be uncomfortable asked to return it and was told to try it out for a few more nights. I have yet to hear back from the company and am disappointed with the customer service.

Could have been better
I use this pillow religiously since 13 weeks and I am used to sleeping with it. However, the gap between is quite large and I don't feel supported all the times. My main concern is that it doesn't obstruct me from rolling to my back, which is a negative for the price. It does provide support for my belly though.
Best pregnancy pillow been using since 12 weeks and now 20 weeks. No need for bulky pillows and it stays in place so when I toss and turn during the night I'm supported on both sides. Well made and definitely recommend

Doesn’t provide the support it states
Hmm I’m not 100% on this pillow. I think the gap in between is a little too big as it doesn’t support my back like it says it does. Convenient when turning around in the middle of the night and not having to stuff a pillow under my bump but i still require a heap of pillows to support between my legs and upper body. Unfortunately I’m still uncomfortable while sleeping, not the best pillow for support. Could also do with a little more padding. I would recommend unfortunately, for suckered into Facebook ads.

Questions & Answers
Henk, I think you’re doing more harm than good for your small business with these passive aggressive responses! I was considering purchasing but your tone is a little off putting.
I’d suggest you consider not being so dismissive of experiences that are not in line with your own - some women will experience things differently and that’s okay. All the best.
Agree, won't be purchasing this pillow after seeing a snippet of the type of customer support Bellybean provide. Better off buying a knock off from ebay for less than half the price.
Is it suitable for plus size women Also?
It's pretty small. I'm larger than average and I didn't really think it gave me much support at all.
