Testing the DockATot Cosset body pillow
The DockATot Cosset body pillow was used by mum-of-one, and pregnant with baby number two, Sifa Modina. "I have used this pillow to aid a more comfortable sleep position in the later stages of my pregnancy," explains Sifa.
"I used it every night for one month since receiving the item at bedtime. I placed the body pillow vertically next to me so I can lay on my left side and hug the pillow - I keep a section between my thighs or rest my top thigh on the pillow.
"The Cosset helps me sleep more comfortably, especially as I've been using it in my second and third trimester. At these stages sleeping positions become difficult, so it made it easier to get comfortable.
"The body pillow can be used solely placed between your thighs whilst laying on the side. However, my most comfortable position at bedtime was when I hugged the pillow, with a left hand under, a right hand over and resting my top thigh on the pillow itself.
"Another useful position when you're not sleeping but looking to get comfortable is that the DockATot Cosset can be used to support the lower back whilst seated and under the belly for bump support."
DockATot Cosset body pillow final verdict
"I thought the design was definitely very attractive despite the tassels, which get in the way when I'm trying to get prepared and comfortable for sleep. It certainly looks nice when my bed is made up and doesn’t look like a bulky pregnancy pillow. I like that it can just be kept on the bed post-pregnancy, sitting looking pretty, and I know will aid lumbar support during night feeds when my baby is here.
"Personally I prefer the softer and warmer velvet material as the cotton used here feels rough and cold to touch. I could do without the tassels for usage, but I like the aesthetic of them, so I'm slightly torn on this part. My experience has been positive with the Cosset body pillow and I have continued using it throughout the last few months of my pregnancy. I definitely recommend it during pregnancy and postpartum.

Is a body pillow necessary during pregnancy?
A body pillow will support pretty much everything. These large pillow designs are suitable for all heights and are most ideal from the second trimester of pregnancy onwards. They will support your back and aim to reduce any back or hip pain.
How to choose a body pillow in pregnancy?
Look out for the size and shape of the body pillow. Pregnancy pillows can range from straight, U-shaped and wedge shaped. Some pillows curve so you can tuck your head underneath them, as well as simultaneously running down your body and between your knees.
