I know, it seems everything you read says to keep everything out of the crib for baby: no blankets, no bumpers. Well madii & dyl have a Sooki Babe pillow that’s quite nice and safe. I love it because it’s nice to give my little guy some cushion, it’s just about a half-inch high pillow (30 x 21 cms), just enough soft lift for their heavy heads.
The pillow is made from 100% certified organic latex and contains no chemicals. Especially for newborns and infants, the cradle design of the Sooki prevents roll-overs and flat-heads while the contours naturally conform to the child’s head providing correct neck support and spine alignment.
The pillow is self-ventilating and offers maximum air flow, preventing moisture and heat build-up allowing the child to breathe freely in any sleep position. And it is the only pillow that can be washed and keep its shape, Ideal for those with allergies. It’s said to last for 5yrs+.
I rest my baby on his Sooki while napping during the day in his crib and bassinet (I always monitor him) and with his stroller cot.
Now I don’t know if baby’s get headaches, but I think I would with never using a pillow. It’s a sweet, soft little touch to sleep well. The Sooki Babe retails for $43. Here’s a look inside the Sooki Babe pillow, which comes in crisp, clean, white, tight zipper-fit pillowcase.
And by the way, the company makes the pillows for toddlers too: the Mini Me. My older kids use them, and I like them a lot. The pillows have an exclusive flip-wave design that tailors to the growing child with one side slightly higher than the other. It, too, is the only pillow that retains its shape after each and every wash–love that. I also use my baby on the Mini Me just after he eats, to keep his head slightly elevated (again, under supervision of course). The Mini Me retails for $64.
And some background on the concept: “Considering Dylan will be spending half his time sleeping, I had to find a product that was natural, hypoallergenic and most importantly provided the support that he needed. After months of research, the Luxe Pillow Collection was born. Made from 100% certified natural latex, it is the first range of natural and sustainable children’s pillows.” More on the pillows here.
