I always wondered how I was going to be able to help my wife sleep better during pregnancy. Fortunately, my family owns a chain of mattress stores, Blissful Sleep, which has given me the knowledge and access to the best products to help her throughout her pregnancy. Here are the top 3 products that are really working well for my wife.
1. Adjustable Base. The adjustable bed delivers so many benefits prior to birth and after. Prior you can elevate your feet relieving lower back pain, sore legs and swelling. You can also sit up comfortably to read and watch TV without the issues of propping up tons of pillows causing neck pain. More importantly, my wife also has terrible acid reflux and some nights has to sleep with her head elevated and having the adjustable base is a life saver. After birth, it will be easier for my wife to feed our son at night without having to get out of bed or prop pillows. It can also just help all moms simply get out of bed after delivery especially if you've had a c-section. It is also a lifesaver for middle of the night feedings for your newborn!
2. A Quality Mattress. The mattress I chose is the leading organic mattress on the market by Blissful Sleep. There is no other mattress I would want my family to sleep on because this is a natural, non-toxic and no toxic off gassing mattress. It keeps not only my wife safe but my son as well.
3. Body Pillow. The Body Pillow, which is a 100% organic wool filled and covered with organic cotton with no synthetic material or chemicals, is a must. My wife hugs that pillow all night, resting her growing belly on top for support. I must admit I'm a little jealous of that pillow.
The first night I brought all of these products home for her she slept like a baby. She told me her hip and back pain instantly went away and she woke up refreshed.
I really recommend an Organic Mattress by Blissful Sleep for the mattresses and body pillows. It is so important to stay away from petroleum synthetic products that may off gas volatile compounds as it can be absorbed through the skin. Not only is it the safest but it’s the best sleep available that there is!
