Therapeutic Positioning Body Pillow

Discover Total Body Comfort

Imagine waking up the same position that you went to sleep in 8 hours before. There is no need for tossing and turning if you are properly supported by the Sleeping Bean.

The Original Sleeping Bean Body pillow is the first and finest body pillow made. Its extra long (5.5 ft.) cylindrical shape was designed to conform naturally to the human body to allow sleeping in the healthiest possible position - the semi-fetal curl. Soft and huggable, the cylindrical Bean is made from 100% cotton and filled with premium recycled poly-fiber, Organic kapok fiber, that molds to support your body. As you sleep, it effortlessly aligns your spine, reduces pain and muscle stress, and encourages healthy sleep positions.

Recommended by Parenting Magazine - Jan 1997, the Sleeping Bean is a life saver for pregnant women trying to find a comfortable sleep position and can even help in the delivery room for labor positioning. And after delivery, the Sleeping Bean is a great aid to a nursing mother as she holds and feeds her baby. 

Recommended by doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists whenever proper support can be beneficial for back problems, sleep disorders, post-operative recovery, geriatric care, pregnancy and nursing, and relief of both physical and emotional stress.

Children and Teens love the smaller Teen Bean (4.5 ft.) The Bean provides emotional comfort which can ward off the Boogie Man and make sleep easier.

Available separately in the following colors: White, Natural (unbleached), Light Blue, Hunter Green, Burgundy, and Granny Stripe (blue ticking stripe).

  • A few words about Kapok: 
    Raising and harvesting kapok has the lowest environmental impact compared to any other fiber materials in use today, including plastic and cotton except for perhaps hemp. The trees are not cut down and do not require irrigation or any chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides. Not only is the kapok tree an important part of rainforest ecology, but it also plays a pivotal role in forest preservation efforts.

    The emerging industry is beginning to stimulate local economies improving the lives of women and their families in rural areas (helping to stem migration to more densely populated urban areas).

    Kapok plant is very important for biological survival.
  • Fluid-proof, medical grade Staph-Check - Microvent soft vinyl ticking is fluid proof, fire proof, anti-microbial, and easily wiped down with a moist sponge. This special positioning Sleeping Bean is designed for home health care, long term care, and for people with disabilities and has helped thousands of patients find therapeutic comfort during difficult times.

The extremely comfortable pillow has been put through a month of laying, sitting, bending, molding etc. and has been an obvious success as a Christmas present! My girlfriend loves it a lot (not as much as she loves me or I'd have to have a pillow fight and the pillow would lose). Now no one dares try pry her fingers off of it. It's nice to have more ways for her to think of me when I can't see her. Everything is great. You have most excellent and understanding service! - Melynda

In order to wash the body pillow, simply take the filling out, wash the cover, and replace the filling. If it is filled with kapok, be sure to remove the filling outdoors as kapok is very light and fluffy and will cause a mess indoors.
