I received the gorgeous Baroo Ellefunk Maternity Pillow which came neatly packaged in it's own handy zip bag. Baroo describe their product as "Super versatile! Great for helping find that comfy sleep position in the latter stages of pregnancy, a huge help when breast or bottle feeding and fab for providing some extra assistance as baby masters the art of sitting up." Obviously I can only give my view on the maternity benefits since my baby isn't here yet but so far so good.

I'm really surprised by how comfortable this pillow actually is. I've been using it every night for a couple of weeks now and it's really helped improve my sleep. The pillow is soft but plump and has maintained it's shape even after all the squashing and rolling around I've been doing with it. I like to lie on my side and pop one end of the pillow between my knees and have the curve come up and under my bump and finally snuggle into the top of the pillow. It's made my nights so much more peaceful. I also find it really useful when reading etc as it supports my neck and around my back taking the pressure from my abdominal muscles.

The cost of these Baroo Maternity Pillows are £39.99 each and can be purchased directly from the Baroo website.
Overall this is a lovely pillow and has definitely been of benefit to me whilst sleeping and getting comfy. I have tried other brands of maternity pillow and this Baroo one is high up on my list of good ones. I think the price is fair since it'll last from maternity and hopefully right through to helping with breastfeeding and supporting baby when learning to sit up. I'll probably be taking this into hospital with me for when I go to have my baby so getting more usage out of it. The zip bag that it comes with is very handy as well and the pillow is easy and simple to put back into the bag. Must have taken me all of 5 seconds when I tried. The zip bag has a handle at the top too so easy to carry around and keeps the pillow clean.
