Snoogle – it had better save the world.

So I’ve been havin problems sleeping lately and Ben finally convinced me to go to the dreaded Mega-Mart of all things infant – Babies R Us – to try to find something to help.  Derek, the guy who is in my weekly Team Weight Loss class and works at BRU, recommended something called the Snoogle.  I’m pretty frugal when it comes to purchases like this and didn’t really want to spend money when I thought I could do the same with pillows but to make Ben happy I went and promised to have an open mind. 

I’m a member of the genus Shoppus Reclusivis, noted most for its need to not have salespeople bother them.  Ben and I were perusing the entire support pillow area (there are more than you could imagine) trying to figure out the difference between the Boppy, the Amy Coe, the pregnancy wedge, and other assorted covers for those items.   I picked up the Amy Coe thingamajiggie and was trying to decipher what it would do for me, when the woman who was working at the registry desk leapt up and immediately started extolling the virtues of the Snoogle.

Apparently she’s having twins and swears that the Snoogle has saved her life and she can’t imagine her life without it.  She also let us know that she will continue to use it even after she has the babies because it’s so comfortable AND that she bought the extra cover (an additional $19.99) so that she can throw one in the washer and put the other one immediately on.  One testimonial is enough for Ben who convinces me to put down the Amy Coe device and get the Snoogle.  I made him carry it.

Next we headed to the baby furniture area because we need to let Mom know which furniture that we want.  I’m guessing we need to know by mid January and then we have to do our registry… oi yoi yoi.  Luckily, we quickly agreed on a crib style, changing table/dresser, and the bedding  – *whew*!

While we were checking out with the Snoogle Ben realized that the one we had picked out had already been opened and returned because there was hair all in the inside of the package!  Gross.  As he went to get another one from the shelf the lady behind us pipes up with HER experience with the Snoogle and how she just luuuuuuuvs it.  We managed to get it into the car without any further comments; I’m surprised that I didn’t have people ambush me while I was out doing the rest of my shopping with their experiences after catching just a slight glimpse of the Snoogle in the back of the Explorer. 

So tonight I begin the Great Snoogle Escapade.  I had best sleep like the dead, not wake up at 4 or 5 AM, and wake up to find that world peace is rampant.  I’ll let you know tomorrow.

    I Snoogle’d. Worked well for me 🙂 Being kind of stuck in one position was kind of annoying but I would have rather been stuck in one comfy position than not be comfortable. I was up every hour to pee anyway.

    that’s what i have —- you totally could’ve borrowed it — and my boppy wedge pillow. washed, clean, just sitting in a closet… 🙂 I hope you like it. I know you’re supposed to sleep on your left side when you’re prego, but half the time i woke up sleeping in my “snoogle” like it was a raft with my feet dangling over one edge, and my feet on the other. Ha! just listen to your body and add more pillows as needed….good luck and sweet dreams!

    So what did you decide on for furniture?? Your fans want to know!

    And did the pillow help at all? Probably have to get used to it, I would imagine. Might take a few days.

    Just an FYI, sleep will not get much better – you’ll be getting up every 5 min to go potty, and it won’t even feel like it’s worth the trip. But at least you can be comfy for the sleep you do get. 🙂
