They can also help ease back pain.

If you’ve ever slept with a stuffed animal, you know how comforting it can be to fall asleep while squeezing something soft. Think of a body pillow as a stuffed animal for your entire body—one that you can hug and will evenly distribute your body weight to reduce back pain and achy joints. Here are three plush options.
