When I was pregnant a couple of years ago, I had terrible acid reflux. Not only was the heartburn painful and uncomfortable, every night I woke up choking because of the reflux. It was the most miserable part of my pregnancy. One of the best baby shower gifts I received was an Acid Reflux Wedge Pillow from The Sleep Shop.
This pillow had a gentle sloping wedge design that raised my head slightly, but not so much that it was uncomfortable. I would recommend this product to anyone with acid reflux. I should say that in the latter part of my pregnancy, even the acid reflux sleep wedge pillow did not help enough. I had to resort to going on Prevacid. I would also recommend Prevacid to any pregnant woman who suffers with severe acid reflux like I did. It worked unbelievably well, and my doctor said it is considered to be safest for pregnant women. As soon as my son was born, the reflux vanished, but we still use our Acid Reflux Wedge Pillow quite often. My husband stole it from me, actually. He uses it now if he has a cold or sinus infection to relieve sinus pressure.
