When I was a little girl I remember hearing an account from someone that claims to have seen heaven. In their narration they described a couch/bed thingy that moved around you instead of requiring you to change positions to get comfortable. This was way before memory foam and sleep number beds. Back then, water beds were high tech.
The idea of an intuitive bed was simply charming. It belonged perfectly in my imaginary bedroom, which was an enchanted forest with tiny fairies, sprites and a pebble-lined brook running through it.
Fast forward a few decades. Pregnant with my second child, I am sitting in my chiropractor Dr. Cindy’s office discussing my miserable experience with what was once called “sleep.” I can not get comfortable . . . my hips feel like they are in two different zip codes and my neck feels like I am in some kind of torturous traction device.
During my first pregnancy I pushed myself too hard, reasoning that once the baby was born I would rest. I thought all that was required in caring for a newborn is to lay around and nurse. Somehow the fact that I was going to have to wake up and feed, rock and burp my baby every 2-4 hours for months on end did not register.
This time around, I view these precious last months of sleep before Babypotamus’ birth as something akin to the last watering hole before attempting to cross the Gobi Desert. So when Dr. Cindy recommended that I try the Boppy Total Body Pillow I headed directly to my local Target and picked it up.
I am a pretty frugal person so it was not easy to shell out $55 bucks, but after one night with my boppy I knew it was worth. every. single. penny.
It may not move on it’s own, but this thing is the closest thing I have ever found to that heavenly bed. It’s so intuitive I can almost imagine the blueprints falling straight from the Almighty into Boppy’s headquarters.
The last few weeks have been great with my new Boppy. I get comfortable more quickly, fall asleep faster and change positions less often throughout the night. If this pillow could only extend the amount of time I get to sleep it would likely be the most perfect device ever created.
Want one now? Good! Because I just happen to have one to give away! Thank you Boppy!
