Sleeping Like A Baby

I've never really understood the expression "sleeping like a baby" because babies don't seem to sleep much. Sure, they sleep often-- but not soundly or for many consecutive hours.

By that definition, I've been "sleeping like a baby" lately-- I'm finding it hard to get comfortable, my back is sore and I'm waking up often during the night. So yesterday, I bought a Boppy Cuddle Pillow.

I'm loving it. The pillow between my knees really seems to alleviate some of my back pressure, the shape encourages me to sleep on my side and I even found that it took some pressure off my bladder. I think I only got up once last night!

That, in itself, is a miracle worth $40.


  1. That looks SO comfy. And I'm not even pregnant!

  2. Oooh that one looks much more comfortable than the one I am using. A friend let me borrow her pillow so I didn't have to spend the money on my own, but hers is gigantic, and wraps from the head all the way down to the toes. Being 5'2", the thing just about eats me alive! It's nice to prop my knees up (ok, necessary at this point) but I am not so sure about the neck part. Yours looks like an excellent choice!

  3. Wow - that looks wonderful! I'm going to have to bookmark that for future use (hopefully soon!)

  4. Ditto Katie's comment! :) Glad you are getting some better Zzzs.

  5. I am glad I came across your blog, because I was looking into purchasing one of these and couldn't find any positive recommendations on it and now I have. Thanks.
