This generously sized multifunctional, organic body pillow checks all of the boxes for anyone who wants a supportive rejuvenating restful sleep. You may be pregnant, feeding a baby, using a laptop in bed, recovering from surgery, have back pain, trouble sleeping, or just want luxurious rest with a moon pillow made of high quality materials. 

Chances are you’ve tried a commercial body pillow, cervical, pregnancy or nursing pillow and it didn’t quite work the way you had imagined. You may have found yourself overheating, sweating, tossing and turning, precious hours of sleep lost to an uncomfortable foam & polyester pillow fight. Battle no more. 

Our Sabakawa style Moon pillow comes with all the benefits that have been recognized for centuries. In the eastern world, using a buckwheat hull support pillow is common practice, and for good reason. Revered for being ultra supportive, grounding and comforting. This pillow is mindfully designed to be versatile, durable, and helpful for a multitude of positions. Adding a unique style to any room, they can and will be enjoyed by the whole family for years to come. These are the “slow fashion” of pillows, responsibly and consciously handcrafted to be renewable and compostable.

Naturally sensory weighted, soothing and supportive. The triangular structure of these tiny hulls fit together in a perfect geometric pattern, this allows for constant ventilation and temperature regulation. They form to your body and have low compression which means it won’t flatten out or slide away from you. Similarly to being in the womb, just the right temp, surrounded in comfort.

The Moon pillow can be beneficial for anyone, especially mothers. Deigned to be a versatile pillow that will relieve your growing belly and pelvis pressure. Because of the low compression, it takes the weight off of your hips, pelvis and spine. You will find that this minimalistic design is much more comfortable and functional than the bulky pregnancy pillows found in large retailers. It is a must have pillow for sex while pregnant. You can use it under your tailbone to support your body and maintain comfort. On days where you just want to lay on your tummy, you can shape the pillow into a circle and lie down with your belly in the center. The hulls hold a lot of weight without compressing so you can enjoy some time to rest your back. During birth your moon pillow will also help you with lowering baby into the birth canal. Sitting on the middle of the moon with the sides pulled into the center, rest your legs gently over the sides, the opening in the middle will allow your pelvis to sink and open allowing baby to transition lower. It is also a wonderful resting space for laboring because it takes the weight off of your arms. If you are on all fours, lay into childspose with your chest hitting mid moon, similar to the belly relief position. This will give you a nice break from supporting yourself through contractions.

When baby arrives it will provide stable comforting support, protecting your tender womb. Keeping baby close, properly supported, at the perfect height and angle to you, assisting in obtaining a natural and proper latch. It is important to be relaxed during this time, having the sensory weighted moon pillow will reduce your anxiety and in turn reduce babies stress levels. The filling is move-able yet stable, holds shape and form while being incredibly flexible. You may adjust the firmness at any time by removing or adding hulls. Spending anywhere from 12-16 hours a day feeding your little babe during the first 6 months can be tough on your shoulders neck and back. While breastfeeding or bottle feeding, the Moon pillow takes the weight and strain off of you. While still being close, the breathable naturally temperature regulating pillow will minimize any sweating or discomfort. To transfer baby from feeding to sleeping, the moon pillow holds the weight of your baby and limits the startle reflex. Oftentimes we try to lay our sleeping one down and they immediately wake up. Using the moon pillow to make this transition is much more successful. Generously sized so that you will not be hunching or leaning over to reach your babies mouth. Supports and encourages many breastfeeding positions from cradle to football to nursing twins, even side-lying. The moon pillow Is also an excellent pillow for sitting, developing motor skills and tummy time. Other commonly used pillow functions are yoga practice, meditations, reading, stretching, using for a laptop or device rest which also has emf blocking aspects, used by massage therapists, chiropractic care, prenatal sessions, sound therapy and tuning fork sessions, used as a barrier to prevent rolling and many more.
