We’ve all been there--uncomfortable in bed or on the couch, trying to get stuff done but just can’t get the pillows and blankets in the right position. Then when you finally find something comfortable you have to get up to go to the bathroom or feed the cat or answer the door, and have to struggle all over again to find the right comfortable position when you get back. No matter what you’re trying to do in bed or on the couch, reclining is hard, and short of buying an adjustable bed, you don’t have a lot of options.

Bed Rest Pillow

There’s nothing easy or comfortable about being required to stay in bed for a long period of time. Whether you’ve put yourself there to kick an illness, or you have a doctor’s orders due to pregnancy, injury, or chronic illness, you want and NEED to take care of your body. With your standard bedding this can be a tall task, especially if you must remain in bed for weeks or months.

The Husband Pillow is the perfect bed rest pillow for remaining comfortable while on bed rest. It helps you stay upright when you need to, keeps you from tossing and turning, and generally helps you relax. You don’t have to struggle to get up into a sitting position--you’re already there, cozy and comfortable to easily eat your healing food without making a mess, or to enjoy a book or a television program. And if, heaven forbid, you’ve broken a bone or are recovering from surgery, you can elevate that knee or ankle or arm while you’re still sitting up and trying to get things done.

Watching TV

This is considered the Golden Age of television, and with so many streaming services we can’t even count, lounging in bed, on the couch, or even on the floor in front of the tv becomes much easier with a quality, comfortable backrest pillow. The Husband Pillow is a perfect way to ease back and get lost in your favorite comedy or drama.
