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.
Purchased in April 2020 at Bellybean.com.au for $90.00.
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.
Purchased in February 2020 for $80.00.
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.
Purchased in November 2019 for $72.00.
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.
Purchased in July 2019 for $85.00.
Not worth for money
I spent 89$ for something worth $10 really disappointed. I used this for second pregnancy and went out of shape after 8 weeks the pillow material you find it in any cheaper 2$ shop... only the pillow case is different.. anyway it’s helpful the way they have designed the pillow...but way tooooooooo expensive... don’t waste your money especially when your pregnant and there’s million stuff to buy in future...
Not for me
The pillow was well manufactured etc, but it didn't suit my body shape and was a complete waste of money. I used it for 1-2 nights from mid-pregnancy. As my pregnancy progressed I tried it again, but still no good. I found it useless as a feeding pillow and think most people would find it useless, so that bit of marketing is a big stretch.
Price too high for what it is
Pretty similar to a review below - the product is just 2 small round cheap cushion inserts inside a cover, which you can only use one way due to the opening on one side. Was kind of comfortable to lay on but definitely not worth the high price, and it became misshapen pretty quickly too. I can't really understand all the really good reviews. I would have given the product an "ok" rating but it got poor because of the poor value for money. Even if you are paying for the "idea", it's far too high.
Does not live up to the hype, at all!
I had high hopes for this feeding pillow, going by all the positive reviews on the Bellybean website, I bought this pillow initially to use whilst I was pregnant & to use it in bed as my heavy bump would hurt my back in some positions & I wasn't getting good sleep...this pillow didn't help at all! It wasn't shaped right, the whole point of the two joined circles is that the shape is meant to be beneficial (somehow!), no matter how you position it, whether you use one or both of the circles, in any position. It didn't work, i could never get com...fortable using it in bed for my bump. Then after our daughter was born, I tried to use it to feed her....again, no matter how I positioned it, it just simply wasn't shaped right, I tried lots of different positions, both the baby & the pillow under her, but nothing worked, she didn't look comfortable & she wasn't balanced securely enough on the pillow. I was very disappointed in this pillow, I'd heard so many positive reviews about it on other websites, I feel completely cheated out of my money. Shape is not right, is meant to be innovative & highly usable but it really isn't, is not comfortable to use no matter what angle/different positions you use, not comfortable/safe to use when trying to breastfeed your baby, it's just the wrong shape.
didn't live up to hopes
unfortunately I was hoping for a somewhat larger pillow that provided more support. I found it quite ineffective. I bought the bellybean pillow as it was a good price and seemed to look like what I wanted. However for my second pregnancy I bought another much larger pillow and felt that it was more supportive.
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.
