The Little One’s Pillow is a popular choice on Amazonand it’s easy to see why. They really seemed to think of everything when making this toddler pillow! I normally buy everything with natural, organic fabrics so the polyester (man-made) filling put me off at first glance so I contacted the company to inquire about their material. They quickly got back to me explaining that, while the filling is mad-made, it is made diligently and without the use of latex, phthalates, formaldehyde, BPA, lead, flame retardants, or any other chemicals other companies put in their fibers. A claim like this is pretty impressive in my book! The outer shell of the pillow is actually 100% organic cotton, and is woven tightly to protect the pillows contents more. When I took it out of the box and didn’t smell ANY chemical smells I was a believer (I have an extreme chemical sensitivity).
The pillow is made well, no obvious flaws, seams constructed tightly. Every mom will appreciate that it’s machine washable and can even go in the dryer – in fact it gets fluffier after a wash and dry! Mine has shown almost no signs of wear after laundering it almost weekly. I do like to keep a toddler pillow cover on it but it’s not necessary according to the company (because of the high quality lining).
My little guy loves this pillow. It’s not too flat or too fluffy for him and just the right size. I like that there’s very little filling, it’s an easier transition into having a pillow and better for his alignment. Some kids may want a fluffier pillow, especially older kids. There is no way to add more stuffing but I noticed some reviews that said the company will add more for free if you contact them! My toddler likes to bring it when vacationing as a travel pillow, it fits perfectly by his head in the carseat. The Little One’s Pillow gives him just enough lift at night to sleep more comfortably and he’s experienced no allergy symptoms with this so I believe their claim to be a hypoallergenic toddler pillow.
