Sleepy Time Headrest to the Rescue!

The Sleepy Time Headrest arrived in time for our 4-week expedition across several states. We were equipped with all we needed (or so I hoped) as we embarked on our 4,000 mile road trip.   Knowing that it would be a long time for my kiddos to be strapped into their car seats I had a wide array of things to keep them busy, happy and cozy.   From our drive to Florida earlier this summer, I learned that a grouchy and tired kid means a miserable experience for everyone.  Luckily the Sleepy Time Headrest allowed them to rest peacefully during our good old-fashioned road trip.

Here’s what you need to know about the Sleepy Time Headrest:

  • Kid tested, parent approved and meets the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard
  • Comfortable and easy to use!  My four year old learned how to do this without help.DSC_3349
  • Keeps your child’s head properly aligned to prevent their head from falling forward or jerking from side to side.  It’s not a real medical term but I call it “crooked head syndrome”.  I’m referring to that terribly awful position where your little one has their head tilted forward, cocked to the side they look so uncomfortable.DSC_3352
  • Fun Designs– comes in 8 different exciting patterns. Our pillow is the Zebra pattern. Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.10.51 AM
  • Different sizes: infant, child and adult available.  (Child size shown below.)Sleepy Time Headrest
  • Multiple uses– my daughter used it as a blanket to cover her cold legs when she was awake during our car trip. Children with special needs are using it in wheel chairs. I haven’t brought this with us on a plane yet but we want to try it out! If you need tips for traveling on a plane with kids click here: Plane Tips For Traveling with Kids
