BB Hug Me Pillow // A Pregnancy Must Have

I am so excited to be sharing about this pillow called the BB Hug Me.  It has truly been saving my sleep this pregnancy! When I was pregnant with Hazel, I never used a body or pregnancy pillow, but this time around I was already uncomfortable sleeping by about week 10 and I knew it was something I needed! My friend told me about these pillows that were deemed magical and I started following them on Instagram, I don't know about you, but when I start following some brands on instagram it doesn't take long for me to be convinced that what they are makin', I need. The only problem was at the time, they didn't ship to Canada!

So being my crafty just do it yourself I thought, why not just make one myself? So my pregnant pal Michelle and I set out on a mission to go find supplies to just whip up these pillows! We were at the fabric store, looking at every bit of jersey and organic bamboo, pricing out and trying to figure out what we would need to make these ourselves. It was actually pretty comical. I went onto their Instagram to look at photos of it once more, and compare pricing, etc and saw their latest post that they were shipping to Canada starting THAT WEEKEND! I was like um, yup, I think we should just save our time and energy and just buy these. Leave the pregnancy pillow making to the pros, and I am so glad I did. 

Took these photos a few weeks ago and the bump has already grown so much since then! 

Honestly, it's like no pillow I've felt. It's filled with little beads so it can form to your body however you want it to. Another reason I was really drawn to it was that you can use it as a nursing pillow! Being that we live in a one bedroom apartment, and are about to have four people living in it, keeping things around that don't have much use isn't something we can't do. Hazel loves to curl up in it when she's watching her morning cartoons, and Dan and I both love it as a pillow behind our heads when we're Netflixin'. It makes a great support around baby when they're learning to sit as well!

*Just want to say, this post is not sponsored! I truly love this pillow and want to share my experience with my BB Hug Me!

I struggle with acne, so I never used face serums because I tend to be a bit greasy. This face fix works beautifully on my skin. The oils soak in and provide NEEDED moisture and have so many healing properties. It leaves your skin feeling calm, and doesn't leave an oily finish. I highly recommend you try it out.
