Product Review - Ready2Roll Pregnancy Body Pillow

~ Posted on Monday, June 13, 2011 at 11:32 AM ~

I came across this pregnancy pillow while I was browsing through the Internet as usual and am so very happy that Alison, the owner of Ready2Roll Pregnancy Body Pillow generously agreed to send me one of her pillows to try out!

Prior to this, I have been using two of Ben's pillows (oh he has tons of it as my MIL made quite a number of small pillows and bolsters for him) to support my belly and back. And to tell you the truth, I was getting more and more annoyed with the make-shift pillows as being a pregnant woman, I tend to pee quite often especially at night and every time I got out of bed and went back, I need to readjust the pillows all over again which is quite tiring and cumbersome. Oh what would I do without this pillow! So getting to review this pillow was such a blessing and life saver!

Description from the product page:

"The Ready2Roll Pregnancy Body Pillow has two pillows. This provides better sleep as it:
* does not need to be repositioned when rolling over
* allows two sleeping positions on each side - one leaning slightly forward and the other leaning slightly back

The Ready2Roll Pregnancy Body Pillow has a flat middle section which you lie on.
* This provides better sleep as the pillow: does not move out of position
* cannot fall off the bed

The small size of the pillows:
* allows space in the bed for a partner
* makes the pillow portable

An adjustable middle section provides:
* a perfect fit
* comfort throughout the entire pregnancy

REVIEW #1: First day itself!

Pillow also doubles up as Ben's bolster!

I love that the pillow remains at the same spot and I don't have to readjust it's position when I got back to bed again!

I love that the pillow also comfortably supports my belly and back. The cushions are just nice, not too thick or thin.

REVIEW #2: Few days later...

Tummy getting bigger and pillow is still doing its job to support it! :)

REVIEW #3: Machine wash...

I have to admit at this review phase, it was quite torturing as I had to make do without the pillow for at least 2 days to test it's usability and comfortability after machine wash. It dries very fast but in our home, we usually accumulate our laundry and wash in batches, so I had to be very patient while waiting for it to be washed and dry. To wash the pillow, I just need to untie the straps at the back to separate out the pillows into 2 and throw in together with my other laundry hehehe...

After dry - same fluffiness! :)

After dry - shape remains same :)

Needless to say, the pillow went back to do its job the moment it's dry.

What I would recommend as an alternative to the pillow is to have snap buttons as well. This is because on the first day of trial, Ben actually unties the knots at the back of the pillow and I had to re-tie and readjust it again but after that (and of course, telling my toddler not to do that anymore!) the string does its job by holding the pillows together. But the thought of having snap buttons on the pillow crossed my mind on the first day but then of course with snap button system, the width adjustments would not be so flexible compared to the string tie which you can pull the pillows closer by 5cm or 2cm or even ½ a centimetre if you wish too.

Other than that, there's nothing to complain about on this pillow! Love the design and practically of it and the fact that it remains the same after machine wash - the same fluffiness and it did not go out of shape or anything. LOVE IT!!!

Gifts Ideas for Men...

~ Posted on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 10:01 AM ~

Hubby's birthday is one and a half month more to come, I have no idea what to get for him this year. When it comes to thinking of the birthday gifts for men, I'm always stuck with clothing, wallets and last year was the Star Craft 2 game.

I came across this website and saw this very cool gift idea! My hubby is crazy about war stuff, the history, the army tanks, the whatever sieges and battles and weaponry and wouldn't it be great if I can get this for my hubby's birthday this year?

A tank ride experience in this World War 2-era Centurion Tank! Whoaa! What a unique and memorable way to give your loved ones for his birthday huh?! I bet he'd go berserk with this gift! If only I have the money and the logistics to make this a reality!!

Or how about a gift in the form of an experience in race car driving? I've seen my hubby playing with car racing games on his computer and he has downloaded an app for a racing game onto my iPad as well. Wouldn't it be fun to see my hubby enjoying this?

Gotta start cracking my head soon to think of what to get him for his birthday this year... or should I just saw Spicy Baby is his birthday gift this year? Hehehe...

Now, what are the gift ideas you can recommend to give the special someone in your life?
