Toddler Pillow To Help Children Sleep Better

I have partnered with Sleep ZZZ Pillow for feature

Toddler Pillow To Help Children Sleep Better

You may have seen Twin Z Pillow on ABC’s show Shark Tank! The Sleep Zzz Pillow is their popular kids sleep pillow (ages 3 and up) that surrounds your child with the snuggly softness and security of their very own body pillow sized perfectly for them! This pillow helps kids fall asleep faster and most importantly STAY asleep providing a more restful nights sleep for your child and you! Everyone wins! See more in the video below….

Right out of the package you can feel the softness of the pillow and immediately you want one in an adult size (yet they have an adult pillow)! I plan to give mine to my nephew for his 4th birthday (maybe my brother and SIL can have their bed back to themselves if E likes it), but my almost 10 year old saw it and would not let go of it.

There is an adult pillow and several color and design options for the kids pillows as well as extra cover options available to choose from.

Keeping the pillow clean is as easy as removing the cover and using your washing machine.

Bedding Gifts for Kids and Adults from Protect-A-Bed

I have partnered with Protect-A-Bed for this feature in the #HolidayGiftGuide and received product

Bedding Gifts for Kids and Adults from Protect-A-Bed

Bedding Gifts for Kids and Adults from Protect-A-Bed

Here we are again. Another holiday season and lists of loved ones to shop for. Let me share some bedding gifts for kids and adults from Protect-A-Bed.

The 4 Box Gift Limit

This year we changed our holiday shopping up for our youngest-the last one left at home. I am following in my brother and SIL footsteps in the way they shop for their 3 boys. 4 boxes with a gift in each: something they want, something they need, something that teaches and something to read. Three of those boxes are self-explanatory but in the box of something they need is sometimes a few things. Underwear, jacket or room decor/new bedding.

I have not decided yet on what I will put in Anthony’s ‘need’ box this season but had I not updated his bedding for back to school I would have been doing it for the holidays.

Better Bedding = Better Sleep 

Anthony has always been a child that requires very little sleep so it is a priority of mine to make sure the sleep he does get is quality and comfortable. I cannot emphasize enough the difference in his sleep when last spring we bought him a new mattress and kids quality pillow. I did this after investing in quality bedding and a Sleep Number bed for my husband and I and instantly had better sleep. Bedding was the key and if it helped my husband and I we knew it would help our son with his own quality sleep.

Since the start of this school year as he entered grade 4, he began sleeping in the Crisp Hypoallergenic Tencel® Lyocell Sheets. What a fancy name for a child! But because we also started using this sheet set on our own bed it made sense to offer him the same new comfort.

These sheets come with a fitted, flat sheets and 2 pillow cases and in ivory, white, grey and blue in different sizes to fit your bed. On the Protect-A-Bed website I learned that 100% Tencel lyocell fabric has natural origins with soft, smooth fibers for sensitive skin, and is hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, and inhibits bacteria growth. What does this mean? My son does not overheat in summer and body heat stays under control for warmth in the winter. Plus I trust that the little boy body residue is not creating a bacteria pool within the sheets. These sheets are easy to clean and will last him a long time. Anything to inhibit bacteria in a growing boy is essential after raising 2 older stepsons, trust me!

My new pillow 

Oh and I have my own new fun besides these same quality sheets. I have a pillow that has proven a blessing in getting me through a sleep with less neck pain from my slipped discs and shoulder nerve pain I get. The Protect-A-Bed Snow Cooling Pillow with Shredded Memory Foam Fill.

Poor pillows and position is the number one cause of my neck and shoulder pain. I have had constant relief of pain with this pillow. I am so grateful for that it was sent to me and if you need a gift idea this season for someone you know cold use a quality pillow (which is just about everyone at any age), I can highly recommend this pillow. It truly performs. Visit Protect-A-Bed for more great gift ideas for the entire family.

Relax Home Life Shredded Down Alternative Poly Fill Pillow

Sample sent for feature

bamboo relax pillow

I am almost done with my shopping and still need only a few gifts to get. I needed one more for my dad so I talked to my Mom for ideas. She says that every year I had always bought him a new pillow and last year I did not buy him one. I didn’t continue the tradition because I honestly wondered if he really needed a new one each year and perhaps I was being too redundant. My Mom had told me that my Dad already hinted wanting to know if he might get a pillow this year from me. Turns out he loved his new pillows and wasn’t just saying that to be nice.

The Cotton Knit zzZipMe Sack is an easy transition for baby from a swaddle. Baby stays warm during diaper changes because you can unzip from the bottom.
