Kids / Child Travel Pillows
or Neck Pillow!
Power Naps on the road!
In addition to having plenty
of activities to keep your children busy in the car on long trips, it's
also important to make sure everyone is well rested. Traveling can be very
tiresome, especially for children and toddlers. Nap time is extremely important
for everyone on your trip -- including the parents!
One way to make sure your
child is well rested is to make sure they are comfortable and can actually
sleep while they are buckled into their car seat. There are several types
of child travel pillows that are available depending on the age of your
child. One of the biggest problems that travelers of any age have
is trying to sleep upright.
There are car seat travel
pillows that work well for toddlers. Also, just a general child travel
neck pillow. Finally, there is a nice travel pillow option for older children.
These are my top picks
for child travel pillows:
|Look how cute these are!
This is another very popular child's travel neck pillow.
We have several of them and
my children love them! I personally give this one two thumbs up, and I've
had many readers tell me how much their children love these. Neck pillows
are great for older kids. They are perfect for adding a little extra
comfort in the car, whether just riding and reading, or for resting.
They have several different
animal pillows to choose from. The fabric is really soft and the cute characters
make them extra cuddly
This car pillow is designed
for children who have moved out of their car seat. It attaches with velcro
to the shoulder belt and is very easy to use. The Travel Rest pillow stays
firmly in place. It cradles your child's head for a comfortable and safe
snooze while their seatbelt remains securely buckled.
|Or, try the Sunshine
This works on the same premise
as the one above, but with a slightly simpler design. It doesn't have the
behind-the-neck-suport shown above which can sometimes plop that head too
far forward on some children.
|Here's a seat pillow that
my neice and nephew LOVE. It will definitely keep yoru little monkey happy
and is super comfortable. It even has a pocket in the back to store
things, and it can be carried like a backback when you get where you're
|Unfortunately, this item
doesn't seem to be currently available at amazon right now. I will let
you know when I have found a substitute supplier!
It stops that head from flopping
forward in the car seat, and it's adjustable to the height of your child,
which makes it great for children of various ages.
There are dozens of positive
reviews on this travel pillow from parents whose children love this thing.
An occasional parent had a child that didn't take to it, but overwhelmingly
most of them love it. This childs travel pillow is fantastic on a long
trip. It comes as a pink upright pillow or other colors.
Kids love to "hug" it and
plop their head forward for a snooze. Zzzzzzz!
Road Trip Mom also recommends:
Adjustable Car seat Pillow
This is a set of pillows
made especially for your toddler or infant car seat. It helps them keep
their head from flopping over so that their neck is more comfortable.
Works best when your child is still in a rear facing car seat.
Child travel pillows help
make your child more comfortable for long journeys. It can be a place to
rest their head, or even their feet! Remember -- More comfort
equals less whining!
