Top 10 Reasons to Use a Toddler Pillow (plus one extra for mom)...

Top 10 Reasons to Use Toddler Pillows (including one for mom)...

In my previous post, I discussed how to choose a toddler pillow and when to start using one. I hear lots of input from parents so here are some of the best uses that I've heard for our toddler pillows:
  1. Use with kids (2+ years old) prone to ear infections or sinus troubles, or during cold/flu season
    Pediatricians sometimes recommend a toddler pillow for a little extra elevation of the head during sleep to help promote drainage (please check with your pediatrician first!).

  2. Send a toddler pillow to child's daycare/preschool for naptime
    Your child will feel special and have a comfort object from home. Also, the fabrics are unique so the pillow won't get lost.

  3. Use as a special pillow for overnight stays at Grandma's house;
    Purchase a special extra pillowcase just for use at Grandma’s house – your child will see it as a special treat and have fond memories. We heard from one customer whose children visit their grandparents on their farm so she purchased our farm-theme pillowcases for her children to use at the farm house.

  4. Use as a travel pillow for toddlers (or adults!)
    Our travel sized toddler pillows are a must for long rides in the car seat or airplane trips. Don't use those flimsy and dirty/germy airplane pillows - bring your own. Also great to use once you get to your destination. I don't know about you, but they never seem to have enough extra pillows in the hotel rooms.

  5. Use with our satin pillowcases to reduce tangled hair
    Using a satin pillowcase helps the hair glide easily over the fabric thus reducing tangles during sleep;

  6. Great gift idea for big brother or big sister
    Paired with a sweet goodnight book, stuffed animal or decorative nightlight. Or create a "theme" gift and give a toddler pillow with a pillowcase to match the theme, for example Pirates or Frogs.

  7. Give as a baby gift along with a matching receiving blanket or burp cloth set
    Before baby is old enough to have a baby pillow while sleeping, a toddler pillow is great for extra support when nursing or bottle feeding. Also great for padding when baby is learning to sit up.

  8. Perfect size to use as a toddler bed pillow
    Helps to make the transition to the toddler bed easier and more fun!

  9. Help soothe child at night
    We’ve even heard from parents that they used our toddler pillows to help convince their toddler that he/she is now a big boy/girl and to give up their binkys (pacifiers) at night!

  10. Okay, now for mom’s turn - Great for mommy too - even before baby arrives!
    Place toddler pillow behind mommy's lower back or neck for extra back support while rocking, feeding, driving, etc. I took one to the hospital with me for comfort during labor and delivery, and also used it in the hospital while nursing. I also use one with a satin pillowcase as my travel pillow.
