Organic Toddler Pillow for Optimum Sleep [Review]

Clean eating and clean living not only involves eating whole and organic foods, but it also involves removes toxins from our whole environment - body products, beauty products, clothes, furniture, bedding, etc. One of my goals as a stay at home mom is to provide the least toxic environment for my son. For the past several years, I have spent a lot of time researching the most natural and organics products to purchase. Babies spend a lot of time sleeping, so choosing organic bedding is of utmost importance. Snugg Organic "My Little Big" organic toddler pillow is a premium natural shredded latex pillow with an organic pillow case.

Rating: total green check marks out of 5.

The Good
The Not So Good
Made with natural latex
Initial latex smell (non-toxic, temporary)
Organic cotton blend pillow case

Durable and long lasting (up to 20 years)

Hidden zipper

Snugg Organic toddler pillow is made from premium shredded latex that is covered with an organic cotton blend. The case is hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant and durable. Each pillow comes with a lifelong guarantee and could last up to 20 years with proper care and use. The pillow size is meant for toddlers and children age 2+. The size is a little larger, so it will last the toddler through childhood. Pillow size: 20" x 14" x 3".

Let's talk about the latex. Latex is made from the rubber tree. My Little Big Pillow is made with organic 100% pure shredded latex filling, which is chemical-free and healthier for a child. Synthetic pillows, and even natural down pillows, can be treated with pesticides and chemicals. The company representative said that there are no other chemicals used during the latex manufacturing process. The latex is 100% organic.

There is a latex smell and it is temporary. The smell is non-toxic and goes away with time. The pillow is 100% chemical-free, so the smell is not from any chemicals, but just the natural rubber latex. When I took the pillow from the plastic packaging, I noticed the smell. It was not too strong, but I would not put the pillow out for use immediately upon receiving it. I kept the pillow out in the house and in the breezeway (on warmer days) to let it air out and within about 1-2 weeks, the smell mostly seemed to go away.

The pillow cover is very soft. The inner cover is made from 100% polyester and the outer cover is made from 40% cotton and 60% polyester. No flame retardants or other chemicals are used. The organic cotton fabric blend has a quilted look to it and is very thick. The zipper on the side is hidden. The only part that can be felt is the little zipper pull. My husband and I were both impressed with how soft the pillow case is. The pillow cover is machine washable.


The latex filling is shredded pretty small. It is hard to tell it's even shredded latex from feeling it on the outside. The pillow is about medium firmness.

My Thoughts: I love this pillow because it is made from organic and natural materials, it is very durable and will last a long time, and it is the perfect size for my toddler and will last him for years to come. I would like to see the company use 100% organic cotton, especially for the outer cover, which would touch a child's skin. I asked the company representative why 100% organic cotton is noted used and she mentioned that the cotton blended with the polyester makes the cover softer and washes better.

I would purchase this pillow and would recommend it. Aside from needing to let the latex smell wear off, this toddler pillow is eco-friendly and non-toxic.

Disclosure: I received the product to facilitate this review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own and are honest.

Tips for Eating at a Nice Restaurant with a Toddler

I love good, gourmet food. When I first gave birth to our son, I was hesitant to take him to nice restaurants. What would people think if I brought a baby? Would he cry and cause a scene? Well, yes, babies and toddler crying and causing scenes can happen anywhere. I prefer to dine in local establishments, so I had to figure out how to take my child to nice restaurants.

Here are my tips for eating a nice restaurant with a toddler.
  1. Ask if they have high chairs/boosters (or bring your own - we have a Prince Lionheart Pod that straps on to any chair).
  2. Dine early and allow 30 minutes for food to arrive at the table. 
  3. Request a booth or a table close to the door (in case you have to quickly sneak out with a screaming child). 
  4. Bring a bag of activities, books, toys, and let your toddler pick one item out at a time. 
  5. Bring snacks and/or dinner (in case your child does not want the ordered meal).
My 2 year old son currently doesn't sit in the high chair for more than 15 minutes, so we get him out and sit him in a chair or a lap with activities. If my parents are with us (on the rare occasion), then my mom usually takes our son out to walk around.

We use some or all of these tips depending on which restaurants we are going to and how long we will be there. Every child is different, so customizing to your child will set you up for a successful dining experience. Don't give up your favorite restaurant, bring a few extra items and adjust your expectations a little.
