AbstractA support pillow that is generally horseshoe or U-shaped with a generally pear shaped cavity in the center and a means of fastening. When used in a horizontal position, the cavity is large enough to fit around the midsection of a normal adult thus allowing for a back support with arm rests, a pregnancy pillow, a floor pillow for reading, sleeping or watching TV, or a nursing pillow. When the fastener is employed, the two tubular arms overlap at the ends forming a closed oval or donut shape. In this position, the pillow can support a small child in a sitting or reclining position. The pillow can also be used in a vertical position supporting both upper and lower back of the user. The pillow is filled with a soft pliable material making it extremely comfortable for all ages and because of the fastener it is easy to carry.
