Can I wash my Widgey pillow?
Both the Widgey Plus pregnancy and sleep pillow and the Widgey Classic feeding pillow can be washed. Our pregnancy pillows are unique in that both the inner pillow and the outer cushion cover can be washed as we offer the best quality feeding and nursing pillows.
We recommend washing on a delicate or wool cycle before hanging out to air dry when the weather permits or in an airing cupboard or near a radiator in colder months.
Our pillowcases are removable and machine washable on a warm wash, no hotter than 40 degrees.
We offer spare covers for your pillows, so you can always have a cover on your pillow!
How does the Widgey compare to other pillows?
Many people ask us why our pillows are more expensive than some of the cheaper alternatives available. The image below is probably the easiest way to see the main differences.
Widgey Pillows are stuffed with one large piece of filling that is moulded to fit the shape of both the pregnancy pillow and the feeding pillow. This keeps the pillows firmer and allows them to retain their shape for longer by preventing ‘clumping’.
The Widgey Classic pillow is also wider than most of the pillows you will find on the market. This offers greater support where you need it most. By providing more room for you to place your forearm and elbow you are less likely to hunch your shoulders while feeding your baby, and therefore, will suffer less neck and shoulder aches. For the best quality pillows to comfort you when you need it most; prices are very reasonable.
Can I use your nursing pillows for bottlefeeding?
Widgey pillows can be used for both bottle feeding and breastfeeding as we offer specially breastfeeding pillows. As a brand we reserve judgment when it comes to feeding and recognise that it is down to personal choice and individual circumstances. We have developed both of our maternity and nursing pillows so that they can be used by mums that bottle feed or breast feed. Of course, it also means that dads, partners and other care givers can use the feeding cushion to feed baby too!
Do the pillows come with spare covers?
The pregnancy pillows come only with their original cover. Spare covers have to be purchased separately.
We offer a range of spare covers for both the Widgey Plus Pregnancy Body Pillow and the Widgey Classic Feeding Pillow. These are particularly handy for keeping your pillow clean and hygienic. There will be inevitable spills during feeding time and that’s’ why we always recommend having at least one additional pillowcase for you nursing or feeding pillow so that you can protect your pillow while you wash the other. Our pillowcases are made from super soft cotton jersey so that they are gentle and kind to baby’s delicate skin. We stock a range of pillowcases in our signature star print in a number of colourways as well as a plain grey marl, grey stripe and on-trend monochrome pineapple print. We also have a very cute cow character print.
Our spare pregnancy and feeding pillowcases are also useful for parents who like to match their baby products to their nurseries or interior decoration; so we offer you both comfort, high-quality and large variety to choose from to fit to your personal taste.
Do the pillows come in different colours?
Each pillow comes in one design and one colour (star design). However we a variety of pillows to choose from with different colours and patterns.
Our variety of pillow covers allows you more of an option when it comes to colour and design. Our cover pillows come in star prints, cow prints, pineapple prints and plain colours.
We have recently started to offer a personalisation service that allows you to add baby’s initials or their date of birth to our pregnancy and nursing pillows. We can also customise our spare covers with embroidered baby names or monogrammed initials. We are currently configuring our website to make this an automatic option at the point of checkout but for now you can contact us on email@example.com, quoting your order reference.
Is the pillow heavy enough and does it keep it's shape over a long period time?
We pride ourselves in the high quality of our pillows. They are firm but very comfortable and can be used daily without the shape changing or going soft.
Which pregnancy pillow is better for me?
Both of our best-selling pregnancy pillows are multi-use which means they share some similar functionality.
Our Widgey Plus sleep and pregnancy pillow tends to be favoured by women that are struggling to get comfortable in bed at night and are finding their sleep is compromised. Though troubled sleep can be a common symptom in pregnancy, many women find that a long body pillow can help to align the hips and spine, helping to keep you in an optimum position for sleep. What’s more, a pregnancy sleep pillow encourages you to adopt a safe sleeping position by preventing you from rolling onto your back or front.
The Widgey Classic pillow (the one that is shaped like a horseshoe) has a firmer composition and it is this pillow that is recommended time and time again by midwives and other obstetric professionals for feeding. Similarly, it is the firmness of this pillow which makes it the preferred choice for women suffering with pregnancy backache.
Many women buy both of the pillows to cover all of their pregnancy and feeding needs as we offer nursing pillows, baby pillows, pregnancy pillows, breastfeeding pillows and many more. If you do decide to buy both pillows you will find a bundle deal here.
