Is it all about the material?

Due to the ever-increas­ing load on the spine and back mus­cles, already in the sec­ond trimester of preg­nan­cy, find­ing a suit­able com­fort­able posi­tion for sleep­ing is not so easy. To facil­i­tate the process of falling asleep and har­mo­nize the state, it is nec­es­sary to choose the right pil­low design. But this is not the only point that you need to pay atten­tion to when choos­ing the right mod­el.

Com­fort at night depends no less on how high-qual­i­ty and safe the fab­ric of the cov­er and the filler are, than on the shape of the cho­sen prod­uct. As a rule, thick cot­ton fab­ric is used for cov­ers, which can with­stand repeat­ed clean­ing and wash­ing, is resis­tant to abra­sion and is suf­fi­cient­ly tear-resis­tant. The main mate­r­i­al today is teak.

As a filler, it is prefer­able to choose syn­thet­ic mate­ri­als, such as holofiber, arti­fi­cial swan down, poly­styrene gran­ules. Of the nat­ur­al ones, you can and should give pref­er­ence to bam­boo fiber, it is quite elas­tic, does not accu­mu­late odors, is eas­i­ly ven­ti­lat­ed and dries quick­ly if nec­es­sary.

How to take care of a pregnancy pillow?

Prop­er care of sleep prod­ucts is not lim­it­ed to time­ly clean­ing. Even new pil­lows for preg­nant women must be shak­en reg­u­lar­ly, even­ly dis­trib­ut­ing the filler inside, ven­ti­lat­ed, dried in the open air away from direct sun­light. Can the preg­nan­cy pil­low be washed? Yes, you cer­tain­ly may. Here the algo­rithm is very sim­ple:

If the pil­low is vis­i­bly soiled, it can sim­ply be washed in the wash­ing machine on the del­i­cate cycle.

In case of slight con­t­a­m­i­na­tion, it is enough to rinse the prod­uct prop­er­ly in the bath­room.

You can dry the pil­low only by first return­ing the prod­uct to its orig­i­nal shape.

After dry­ing, the fab­ric must be ironed, pay­ing spe­cial atten­tion to the seams.

The last step: fill the washed, dried and ironed cov­er with filler and care­ful­ly fas­ten it.

Other options

If your pil­low has a non-remov­able cov­er or can­not be washed entire­ly, then you can use a mild deter­gent solu­tion that is applied to the soiled areas. Let the prod­uct work on the stain, and then remove it prop­er­ly with a clean, soft, damp cloth. After that, the pil­low must be thor­ough­ly dried. In this case, the care of pil­lows for preg­nant women should be more fre­quent.

If the sur­face has obvi­ous signs of use, sim­ply increase the con­cen­tra­tion of the deter­gent and its expo­sure time to the fab­ric.

Nev­er use aggres­sive bleach­es con­tain­ing chlo­rine! Not only will they dis­col­or the pat­tern, it will not work to wash them to the end with­out full soak­ing and rins­ing. And breath­ing chlo­rine vapor at night is not good for you or your baby.

It’s important to know!

To facil­i­tate the care of pil­lows for preg­nant women, it is nec­es­sary to use spe­cial cot­ton replace­ment pil­low­cas­es. They are much eas­i­er to put in order, in addi­tion, you can diver­si­fy the design of the pil­low for preg­nant women by choos­ing new shades and pat­terns of pil­low­cas­es. Here are a few help­ful tips to help extend the life of your pil­low:

  • Do not use the pil­low until com­plete­ly dry. Cot­ton, even heavy cot­ton, can warp in areas where the fab­ric is still damp.
  • Using cot­ton pil­low­cas­es will help keep the teak cov­er from get­ting dirty. Pil­lows are usu­al­ly washed no more than twice a year.
  • Most often, syn­thet­ic mate­r­i­al is used as a filler. Of the organ­ic options in preg­nan­cy pil­lows, only bam­boo fiber is used. It keeps its shape per­fect­ly, does not lose its prop­er­ties even after wash­ing in a wash­ing machine.
  • Buy­ing a pil­low for preg­nant women, you get a reli­able assis­tant not only for the pre­na­tal peri­od. After the baby is born, your favorite pil­low will become a com­fort­able sup­port dur­ing breast­feed­ing.

We read the instructions

Despite the fact that most of the mod­els are made exact­ly from the mate­ri­als described by us above, before buy­ing and even more so before wash­ing, be sure to read the instruc­tions for the prod­uct. The answer to the ques­tion: how to wash a pil­low for preg­nant women is right there. It is pos­si­ble that inside is a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent filler that requires dif­fer­ent care. The fab­ric is not cot­ton at all.

At the same time, you need to remem­ber that no mat­ter what mate­r­i­al your pil­low is made of, it is pos­si­ble to use only gen­tle wash­ing and spin­ning modes for it. Some fab­rics may notice­ably deform and com­plete­ly lose their shape after try­ing to straight­en the prod­uct.

If you fol­low the man­u­fac­tur­er’s rec­om­men­da­tions and use your own expe­ri­ence in car­ing for things, you can eas­i­ly save not only the appear­ance of the acces­so­ry, but also all its orig­i­nal prop­er­ties.

Prop­er care of a pil­low for preg­nant women will help extend the life of the prod­uct and a con­ve­nient thing will come in handy more than once for a young moth­er.
