When baby turns into a toddler and makes the move from the cot to a toddler bed, it’s time to add one more thing to the mix – a toddler pillow.
Kids’ smaller proportions mean adult pillows are too big and can put a strain on their little necks and shoulders. In the long run, this may cause posture issues, and in the short run a grumpy, tired kid.
We’ve found the 8 toddler pillows to help little wriggle worms get a good night’s sleep.
1. Cuski Orthopaedic Toddler Pillow
A clever toddler pillow shaped to give neck support to a growing child. It can help eliminate neck and back problems and give kiddos a more restful sleep.
2. Ollie Owl Mini pillow
Made from memory foam, this toddler pillow is designed in consultation with chiropractors to create the ideal shape for sleeping tykes.
3. Bubba Blue bamboo pillow
If a traditionally shaped pillow is your style, look no further. It’s eco-friendly, super soft and natural sweat-wicking properties make it breathable for kids who run impossibly hot when they’re sleeping.
4. Madii & Dylan Teenii Tot pillow
Made from organic latex and specially designed for kids using pillows for the first time. The Teenii Tot pillow has a wave design like the Cuski, and the latex conforms to your child’s head. Plus, it’s hypoallergenic: it’s naturally resistant to dust mites, mildew and bacteria.
5. Bambi Pillow
Natural fibre pillows all seem to have the benefit of being hypoallergenic, but the Bambi pillow is endorsed by the National Asthma Council Australia for being safe for children with asthma.
6. Minijumbuk Dreamers Wool Rich pillow
This low profile toddler pillow is filled with wool blended spiral-shaped fibres that help the filling stay soft and springy. It’s encased in breathable cotton and is ideal for asthma sufferers.
7. Tontine My First Pillow
The best value of the bunch. It has a low profile and comfy soft feeling that’s important for toddlers while saving some money for all the other things toddlers need.
