Pain and discomfort is no fun and having a seat belt pressing on a sore body part is even less fun. I have been there and that is why I make these pillows soft and fluffy!

My abdominal pillow’s work great for someone that has Endometriosis, just had a hysterectomy, C-section, mastectomy or Heart surgery. It cushions the seat belt from your G-tube and works with just about any post-op surgeries. Can be worn during pregnancies as well!

My Abdominal Pillows are about 3″s deep of soft poly-fill fluff. I fill them with just the right amount of fluff to make them protect your ouch and soft enough to cushion you from the presser of the belt. Making the perfect Ouch-less pillow to wear during any time you are in the car. Soft enough to be flipped over and used to sleep on when attached to the upper belt.

On my pillows with pockets, there is a large 5″ x 13″ pocket allows for a hot or cold pack to be inserted. The top is closed by two plastic snaps (the kind used on baby diapers) to hold the pack in, but with some packs (like the one shown) you can add and remove without opening the snaps.

My pillows with pockets are great for hot flashes too!

New fabric for my pillows

My new mini mouse collection! Abdominal, comfort and port pillows!!!
 
The Abdominal is used to relieve abdominal pressure caused by using a safety belt when driving. It can be used by any motorist but is especially helpful to pregnant women and those who may be suffering from abdominal injuries, wounds, recent surgery, or pain. When properly used, the pillow is placed between your abdomen and the seat belt. Additionally, this product can be used by almost anyone who simply wants a more comfortable ride. It may also be used in conjunction with seat belt usage on an aircraft. 

And others who would use a abdominal pillow: Pregnant women, Hysterectomy, Hernia, Appendix, Gallbladder, Bypass Surgery (using the smaller pillow vertically while being transported), Children who have had abdominal surgery or just find the seatbelt uncomfortable (the 16” pillow is the appropriate size for children), people who spend lengthy amounts of time in a car (Sales Reps, long commuters, frequent flyers, etc.) as well as airplanes the pillow can be used with the seatbelt, or as lumbar support, or for taking a nap when placed upon your shoulder.

Abdominal pillow is made of 100% cotton fabric, poly-fil and hook N Loop tape. Size:
Approximate size Abdominal pillow 7″ wide x 13”long

Comfort pillow is made of 100% cotton fabric and poly-fil.  Approximate size 9” x 7”

Port pillow is made with 100% cotton fabric, poly-fil and hook & loop tape. Approximate size port pillow 6” x 3”

These are two mighty little Ouch-less pillows, they help ease your ouch!

This is for a set of 1 post op/comfort pillow and 1 port pillow.

How it works:
The *porta pillow raised design of the Ouch-less pillow takes the pressure of the seat belt off your port or pacemaker which helps ease your ouch. Wear it where you need it the most; over the port/pacemaker or on the port/pacemaker. It depends on how your seat belt fits you.

The Comfort/ post-Op pillow:

The comfort pillow can be used 10 different ways to bring you comfort. A little softness go a long ways!

1. Placed under your arm to ease the presser off your sore area from surgery.

2. Placed on chest between you and the seat belt.

3. Arm rest pillow, place under forearm, comfort from hard surfaces.

4. Breast support pillow, place under your breast when they are tender.

5. Between the breast.

6. Knee pillow, place between the knees while sleeping.

7. Lower Back pillow, place in the small of your back to aid back support.

8. Neck pillow, place at the back of the neck while resting.

9. IV tubes support, place under tubes to keep the weight off your body.

10. Butt pillow for tail bone spares.

I am sure there are many more ways one can use a cute comfort pillow!

How to use it:
Wrap the hook and loop tape around your upper seat belt with the Ouch-less pillow against your chest. The hook & loop tape snugs around the seat belt. Loosen the grip if you need it to slide with your movement or snug it up to hold its spot. If it moves around too much, try a piece of drawer liner between the seat belt and hook & loop tape. If the hook & loop tape is too long you can trim it down with scissors.

Options:
Hook and loop tape can be closed on either side of the Ouch-less pillow.
They work great even if you don’t have a port by keeping the seat belt off your shoulder bone!

Material:
Port pillow is made with 100% cotton fabric, poly-fil and hook & loop tape.
Post-op pillow is made of 100% cotton fabric and poly-fil.

I have been asked for larger and longer pillows ( 7′ x 13′) add comfort for one’s Abdominal or across the chest! The abdominal pillow has three Hook N Loops to hold it in place.

The other new sizes is the chest pillow that is 5.5″ x 8″ offers more coverage on your port or pacemaker. It can also be used on the chest for heart surgery comfort.

I have a few sewn up and making more as time allows. If you would like on of the new sizes in a fabric you don’t see it in ask.

If you find a port pillow that you like the fabric and would like it in one of the new sizes please ask, most of the fabric I have more of, but there are a few that what you see is all I have.
