HELP ! Can't find a small pillow

This is silly! I saw small pillows everywhere at Christmas - NOW I can't anything anywhere?

Any good ideas?!?!? I go in tomorrow

HELP ! Can't find a small pillow

How about a travel pillow? Or you could go to a fabric store and get a pillow insert? If you have a Walmart or Target around you I know that they have a wide variety of pillows.

I used a lightweight blanket folded up. The pressure was perfect when I laid down and I could also use it to hold against my stomach.

Check out walmart. They have those squishy pillows with that slick fabric that is easy to clean. The ones with the beads in them like the bean bags have.

I found my small pillow at Bed, Bath and Beyond if you have one of those near you.

Hi!
Have you tried Target? Go in the children's bedding section. They usually have them.
I wish you all the best for tomorrow!

no targets or walmart in Santa Barbara...... Should have just bought something when I was Christmas shopping.

I did get some gifts of wine - they come in some beautiful bags. One is a lush green velvet. Maybe I'll just put in something soft and sprayed with lavendar and make my own unique tummy buddy!

Did any one sleep at all the night bbefore?

I Would Highly Recommend Buying The Tummy Pillow Tote Bag At The Hystersisters Store. I Loved Mine - It Was The Perfect Size And I Still Use The Tote Bag For Other Things. Plus, With Its Handle It Was Easy To Carry To The Car Or Where Ever Else You Were Taking It.

Hi, A friend of mine here at work just gave me a really soft,squishy teddy bear to use for tummy support. I didn't have any small pillows either and I was having a hard time finding one. That may be an alternative for you if you cannot find a pillow. Best of luck! Melanie

I still keep a stuffed animal (pretty calico cat lying down) in my car for use on trips under the seat belt. Nice and soft and long (8"X15") - and since I love cats, it makes me smile too.

Hello, the hospital gave me a small pillow each time I had any surgery done. You might want to check. Some hospitals have volunteers that make them for patients. I found it helpful since I had not thought about it before hand.
