A good, long sleep is one of the things you’ll miss once your new baby is out. You may not be able to get as much sleep as you want because your little one would need a lot of your attention. Babies truly sleep best in their mother’s arms too, feeling the warmth of your skin and surrounded by your comforting scent, so you can’t really just put them down as soon as they nod off. Breastfeeding also clocks in its demands on your sleeping time throughout the night, adding to the strain on your tired muscles and achy bones from cradling your little one all day. It’s quite a challenge finding a comfortable position to accommodate what both your body and your baby needs.
That’s why it’s a good idea to have a reliable support system in place before the baby comes out, to anticipate the first few weeks that you’re recovering and finding your feet as a new mom.
Finding good, physical support for your body, especially if you’re a new mom, is one fantastic way to help enjoy motherhood. When you’re relaxed, you put yourself in a calm state of mind and you automatically focus better on caring for your baby. Special pillows like Snug-A-Hug are designed to help mothers find comfortable nursing, sleeping, and relaxing positions. It’s also a godsend to expectant moms who need that special kind of pillow to cradle bellies, backs, and legs all at the same time! Post-operative patients, Daddies, and even the babies themselves will also find this pillow useful.
