I fall asleep the moment my head hits the pillow. I wake at 5am and drop at 10pm. If I am living it up, I am up until 11pm! My husband considers sleeping a talent for me. I can sleep any time of day, with noise, and after drinking coffee. My son, on the other hand, was a different story. As with many kids, once he started teething, he became a terrible sleeper. He hated his crib and ended up sleeping with me in my bed for months. Therefore, my husband and I slept very little for months! I am so happy to say that he has moved into his little racecar bed and sleeps like a champ now.
My son was very excited to receive his racecar bed and never asked to come in with us again. However, we still had one issue. We didn’t have a pillow that was appropriate for him. He loves to sleep on his stomach and all the puffy pillows we have seem as though they consume his little head. I was pleased to be introduced to Savvy Rest, a business that provides organic mattresses, pillows, and bedding.
Savvy Rest developed their products due to the concern that conventional mattresses contained toxic chemicals. I have to admit that I was never aware of this. It makes me wonder what is in my own mattress because I know it is not a natural mattress. As stated on Savvy Rest’s website – “In conventional mattresses, flame retardants have been identified as the biggest health threat to individuals. Conventional cotton culture is toxic to the planet, accounting for 30% of pesticide and herbicide use and a huge negative effect on ecosystems. Conventional wool processing releases harsh chemicals and solvents into the environment. And petroleum-based foams are common in furniture items, including many mattresses”. Why haven’t we heard about this before?? Savvy Rest’s products are all organic, including organic latex, cotton, and wool.
I chose to review Savvy Rest’s Soap Shape Pillow. I was really curious about each of their pillows; however, the concern about my son’s sleep was at the forefront of my mind. I was drawn to the Soap Shape Pillow because it is a low pillow and a good choice for young children who sleep on their stomachs. Also, “the Soft Dunlop molded latex design has hollow channels throughout to promote air flow”.
My first impression about the pillow when I received it was that it is heavier than what I am accustomed to. This makes sense considering my pillows are so fluffy. I tried the pillow out for myself prior to giving it to my son. I was pleasantly surprised that this low pillow provided so much support and comfort. I felt so relaxed! My son has been sleeping peacefully with his new pillow and I am resting easily as well knowing that it is organic!
