Perfect Back Support
I am still fairly early in pregnancy (15 weeks) however this pillow has been a lifesaver for my back as I am not use to sleeping on my side and wanted to train myself early!
Versatile and so comfy!
At only 18 weeks I am loving the versatility of sleeping with the butterfly between legs and the support of growing breasts and bump! I use it to prop myself up too. Love it!
So helpful. Unbelievably comfortable. Provides so much support. I kept rolling on to my back when sleeping in pregnancy which was a worry, but this pillow made me stay on my side which is great
This pillow is very comfortable. I no longer get a sore back or ribs while sleeping and have been having much better sleeps. So glad I made the decision to purchase.
Amazing maternity pillow!
I started getting rib pain at 16 weeks and sleep was very uncomfortable. Since using the butterfly maternity pillow I’ve been able to sleep through the night and my rib pain has eased significantly. I’m usually a tummy and back sleeper so this pillow helps me stay on my sides without feeling trapped which has been great. I love that it takes up hardly any space, my fiancé has also been happy he still fits in the bed!
The gift of comfort
The pillow was a gift for my daughter-in-law, she is delighted and it's already made a difference to her sleeping pattern. My son is quite jealous of her having this lovely pillow.
Love the design but not suited for me
Love the concept of back + belly support design however, Not comfortable at all. Would be more suitable if it was wider where you lay between considering its not a one size fits all since body shapes and bump sizes vary.Some people require more width, being supportive is one thing it’s uncomfortable for me to be comfortable/rolling over to change sides im sleeping on due to not being wide enough so in this case it really isnt comfortable for my bump & disappointment i wasted the $$
Luxurious and Perfect
Early in my pregnancy I was suffering so bad with backaches I purchased the pillow and I finally got reduced backaches and a decent nights sleep! The benefit I found also is that as I’m on top of the pillow it doesn’t slip away at all during the night like a previous pillow I was using allowing for me to have longer lengths of sleep.
Supportive and comfortable
The butterfly maternity pillow is supportive and comfortable. I don't have to worry about falling onto my back during my sleep throughout the night. I can comfortably move from side to side. Customer service was great as well.
Comfy and ease of mind!
Wonderful addition to my pillow fortress! Eases my mind knowing I can switch sides from left to right.
Belly is supported at all times as well. Thank you Butterfly Maternity Pillow.
Good for bump support
This maternity pillow provides decent support for my baby bump whilst sleeping, and I like that it’s double sided to make rolling over easier. Petite women may find the two halves are a little far apart initially. I’m 5 months pregnant (with a pretty sizeable bump as it’s my third pregnancy) but I do have to push the two halves in closer throughout the night to get continued support. This pillow also has not helped my hip pain. I thought the fact this pillow raises your torso slightly from the mattress may relieve some pressure, but it hasn’t h...elped and I’m on the look out for a different option to address that, as a pillow between the knees is also not sufficient. I’ll still use this pillow for travel, as it’s nice and small. I’d recommend it for women just looking for some bump support and something to discourage them from rolling on their backs, however if you’re experiencing pregnancy aches and pains, a larger pillow may be more supportive and helpful.
This is the perfect pillow! Can’t sleep without it
Before having the butterfly pillow I was waking up multiple times a night from being uncomfortable. Since having the butterfly I don’t wake up, I’m well supported and hip pain has ceased.
Worth it! Use it every night
I was getting a lot of back pain at the beginning of my second trimester and the butterfly pillow has been a game changer.
I wasn’t sure whether it was worth to buy it or not but I’m glad I did! It gives me a lot of support around my back and belly which really makes a difference on getting a good night sleep. I would highly recommend it!
Perfect maternity pillow!
Comfortable and compact, this maternity pillow allows me to sleep really well as it provides support to my growing bump while preventing me from sleeping on my back. So no more worry in the middle of the night. My husband also loves it as it doesn’t take up the entire bed and we can still snuggle.
It’s okay. I expected more for the price
It’s okay but it’s just very firm and kind of high/thick so I struggle to find a comfortable position.
The service was excellent though and delivery super quick! It’s just not that comfy
Questions & Answers
I bought the pillow recently and have tried it for over a week now. However I'm still finding it difficult to get a good position. I toss and turn a lot during my sleep and the pillow hasn't prevented me from doing so, so far. I still wake up with back aches and it's just been uncomfortable. I really like the quality and materials and I think it supports my belly well so I'm trying to persevere with it for my back. I'm 16 weeks pregnant and petite/short, and my main areas of soreness are my mid back. I've reached out to customer service but haven't gotten a reply yet. Was wondering if you could help me out?
I have found the past few weeks I’m better without the pillow. When I do need it, I place it behind my back only as support and this helps. Move the pillow to suit your bodies need. You don’t always have to support back and belly as such. Eventually I know I’ll need it for my belly again though. (16w3d)
Thanks for sharing your experience Anna :) How do you position it behind your back in a way that supports it?
Hi there! Thanks so much for reaching out. Sorry that you haven't had the best experience with your Butterfly so far. I have messaged your Product Review account privately to go through the steps on how to best position yourself and ways we can help better your experience using your pillow.
Thanks so much
Hi, I just wanted to know does this pillow give support to plus size women? I’m 19weeks and I’m plus size, I will be gaining more weight as time goes so just wanted to make sure that I will have that support.
I am plus size and yes! It's definitely big enough!
Thanks for reaching out. We have mums of all sizes using them from 20 weeks all the way to full-term and even after for breastfeeding support. Our pillows are a one size fits most, however, we do offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee so if you do buy one, try it out and see how it goes, if it’s not right just message me and I’ll be happy to issue a full refund!
Can this be used as a feeding pillow also?
Hey Tamara! Yep, the Butterfly pillow can also be used for feeding.
It is folded in half to elevate bub up to your breast height so your shoulders and arms don't do the work!
We are in the process of getting photos done to show this on the website. Hope this helps!
