Protect-A-Bed Luxury Pillow System- review and giveaway!

To start this post off, I just want to say I have had a few posts up and I guess they have not been showing up. One or two have but since I made a few changes to my blog, Only a few of my posts have been up. I would like to say how sorry I am to the sponsors and to my followers. I am doing everything in my power to make sure that NEVER happens again. I want all of you to know that I am an Honest, Hardworking Mother. That being said, Let the giveaway begin, Again!

I love to sleep. What person doesn't? However, us moms don't get to sleep as much as we would like. I have a 7 month old and a 4 year old. Now the 4 year old has been the best sleeper but my 7 month old, not so much. He sleeps about as much as a new puppy. Yeah, with the whining, and the waking up around 4 to 5 times a night. He has no teeth yet so no chewing on the furniture yet. LOL! So when I get the chance to go back to sleep, I want to be as comfy as possible. 

I have all kinds of pillows in my bed. (My poor husband) Oh how I love my Pillows! 

I had the chance to review the Luxury Pillow System  by Protect-a-Bed. When it came I was thrilled! My daughter who loves to steal my pillows quickly decided that it was for her. Sorry sister This one is for Mommy! 

Protect-A-Bed is a great company that started in South Africa under the name
SNUGFIT™. (That name was already taken in the U.S. so that's how they came up with Protect-A-Bed)
Protect-A-Bed is actually a Health product. It helps protect your bed from all kinds of things that make us sick like Bed Bugs and allergens that can Get in our mattress or pillow. They have tons of items to help, well Protect your bed! Items from regular mattress covers, crib protectors and yes you guessed it, Pillows! You can browse all the Items  Here. 

I am the type of person that when I find a good pillow, I stick to it. Yes, my pillows tend to be on the ragged side. Nope, I'm not going to throw them out. Or so I thought! I have to say one of my main pillows has now been replaced.  No, Pigs are not flying around although they should be. Ha! I really love this pillow. I mean L.O.V.E. this thing! It is large but not to large. Its soft but not too soft. It even came with extra stuffing that I can add to it if I need to make the pillow a little more firm. 

The first time I used the pillow, I was having one of those nights that my hands and legs hurt, my back hurt and i kept having to shake my hands and feet for some reason. I just couldn't get comfy! (I wound up on the couch that night.) But a few nights later, I decided to give it another go. It was like I was sleeping on a freaking cloud! I did  not need the extra stuffing. I made a very small pillow for my daughters dolls and stuffed that with the extra stuffing. I slept so good for the 2 hours at a time my baby lets me sleep. (ahhh the early years....) But those where the most restful 2 hours of sleep I've had in a long time!

So the pillow was a WINNER and the fact that it helps keep us safe and help keep us healthy all while helping this down right tired momma sleep is an amazing combination! 

Here is a bit of info on the pillow direct from the sponsor! 

"Protect-A-Bed’s Luxury Pillow System includes Protect-A-Bed’s new Luxury Pillow with a waterproof pillow protector. The Luxury Pillow features a microfiber filling, with the same comfort and feel of down, and a unique zipper closure that allows users to adjust the amount of filling to achieve exactly the right balance of height and firmness or softness to suit individual comfort levels.

At the original time of this post, My son was 7 months old and has now turned 8 months old and has 2 bottom teeth in. No chewing on the Furniture yet but everything else is subject to be chewed on at this time. He really likes to get a hold of sissies toys. But that is another post all together.
