The Serenity Star Pillow Transitional Body Maternity Pillow is made by Moonlight Slumber. This pillow comes in three different sections to provide maximum comfort and support.
In addition to this, the three-part pillow is designed to be used from pregnancy through preschool, so moms find it useful far after baby is born.
When using the pillow as a sleep aid during pregnancy all three pieces of the pillow are designed to fit together simply by using a custom-made pillowcase. The pillowcase then comes off so the pillow can be used with baby even as baby grows.
During pregnancy the pillow is the perfect sleeping aid because it allows mom to sleep on her side, which is the position most recommended by gynecologists.
Sleeping on the side, preferably the left side is recommended for the baby’s health, but side sleeping also helps keep mom cool at night while she is sleeping, as well as comfortable.
Once baby is born, the pillow can be used to support baby while nursing, but can also be taken apart to help baby develop. For example, the curved section of the pillow is perfect for helping baby sit up.
Pros of Serenity Star Pillow:
Provides great support. Getting comfortable at night is the hardest task when pregnant. As a Certified Nurse Midwife, I highly recommend using the Serenity Star Pillow for the entire pregnancy.
The U-shaped pillow contours to the body to provide maximum support, but is also very comfortable. The U-shaped design ensures support on both sides, which is helpful for expectant mothers who like to switch sides.
Using the pillow ensures that mom wakes up each morning feeling refreshed, as well as pain free.
Pillow grows with the expanding family. Pregnancy pillows are quite expensive when compared to other pillows; so many women have a hard time spending the money on them.
The Serenity Star Pillow is worth the extra money because it can be used long after baby is born. The pillow starts off as the perfect sleeping aid for expectant mothers, and then turns into a nursing pillow as soon as baby is born.
As baby continues to grow, the pillow comes apart to form bolstering pillows. The curved section of the pillow can be used to help support baby as they are learning to sit up, while the two longer sides can be used to help prevent baby from rolling too far.
Can be custom ordered. One problem that women have with a pregnancy pillow is the pillow being either too long or too short; this is especially cumbersome if they are looking for a pillow that supports their feet.
Most women I work with find it uncomfortable to have their feet hanging off the end of the pillow; they would rather have them supported by the pillow.
The Serenity Star Pillow can be custom ordered so it is the perfect length for supporting the feet.
Feels like one solid pillow. Once the cover is taken off the pillow, it breaks down into three different parts, which I thought would be noticeable when it was all put together.
However, when the pillowcase is put on the pillow so it forms the u-shaped pregnancy pillow there is no noticeable difference, one cannot tell that the pillow has three separate parts.
This is perhaps due to the superior design of the pillowcase, which ensures that all parts remain snug to each other so that they don’t separate during use.
No choice of pillowcase covers. Perhaps the biggest drawback to this pillow is the lack of pillowcases; there are two other choices aside from white.
However, this problem can easily be resolved by making or having a friend make an extra pillowcase with fabric that matches your bedroom. Three separate cases can be made or one full body case, depending on current use.
The Serenity Star Pillow Transitional Body Maternity Pillow is one of the pricier pregnancy pillows, but so worth the extra money.
The pillow is designed to provide expectant mothers with a good night’s sleep, as well as help alleviate any hip pain by keeping the body properly aligned.
The higher price is also validated by how long the pillow can be used, which is well into baby’s toddler years.
