Proper Positioning Post-Pregnancy

Among the many priorities and concerns that accompany the notion of becoming a new mother, proper posture pre and post pregnancy should not be an issue in daily occurrences, as becoming a new parent has enough responsibility without constantly worrying about a straight spine. With the help of a ergonomically crafted specialty pillow, any new mother can rest, breast-feed, relax and sleep soundly knowing their upper and lower back are being properly supported, not only for themselves but for their newborns as well.
Full-body pillows, such as the Snoozer available at ContourLiving is designed to achieve proper spinal alignment and healthier circulation throughout all stages of maternity and nursing. Designed to follow the natural  position and contours of the body, the 3-pillow-in-one design accommodates the semi-fetal position, the top doctor-recommended sleep and rest position for pre and post-pregnancy. The semi-fetal position reduces tossing and turning as well as muscle cramping for the new mother so maintaining this position as often as possible is crucial for optimal comfort. “Many women who prefer to sleep on their back are bothered by pain during the later stages of pregnancy. Unlike the traditional back position, where you are laying flat against the bed, with the use of this pillow, you can prop your body up at an angle and will help to take the weight of the uterus, abdominal nerves and surrounding blood vessels.”
What is also ideal for pregnancy is this full body pillow provides ideal nursing support whether you choose to nurse in a rocking chair or while laying down, as the contoured pillow cradles the lower back and abdomen as well as the neck and spine so both mother and baby are comfortably positioned.
ContourLiving understands just how important the health of your muscular and skeletal system is. Their full line of body support cushions and pillows will provide the ergonomic support at all times. Other wonderful full body pillow options to be recommended are the Back Max wedge cushions, featuring full body support as well as massage option and the Mattress Genie inflatable wedge, a wedge design allowing any bed surface to instantly become that of a luxury adjustable mattress. A must-have for any new mother.

Comfort Your Kabooti at the Football Game

We are fast approaching that time again; football season time, that is. The familiar smell of draught beer, greasy hot dogs and cheesy doughy pretzels is right around the corner. Serious football fans are already buying season tickets, claiming prime seating in those stadium steps. A true example of tailgating at its best, but what would enhance this all-American experience that much more would be a comfortable seat wedge cushion for all four quarters. 

Originally designed to soften and comfort the lower region of the body per and post surgery, the Kabooti Cushion has far greater use than its donut-ring shape may inspire. Not only does it aide in the relief of hemorrhoids and tailbone injury, it also doubles as the perfect accessory for any game. The ribbed and winged design cradles the coccyx bone and aligns the hips properly for long periods of sitting. Start by sitting on the cushion in your car on the way to the game and keep the comfort and support the whole way through.

Sitting endlessly on hard, firm stadium seats is not only uncomfortable, but promotes poor posture causing head, neck and shoulders to slouch. With this ergonomic design, total support and alignment are present along with general padding where you need it most! Order the Kabooti Cushion along with those pre-season tickets - it's a long season, so might as well get comfy!
