This may sound silly, but I’m not joking when I say that Charley LOVES pillows. He started taking off the pillows from our couch and laying his head on them. My husband and I would laugh and say, “aww pillows!!!” and he would smile and burrow his head into the pillow even more. It kinda became his thing. And it kinda melted our hearts.
How he keeps doing that, I have no idea. Parenthood, I tell ya!!! Gives you all the feels.
When Zack & Ali reached out to me to review their organic toddler pillow and pillow case, I was thrilled because I knew how much my little guy would love it. Because I’ve become more aware of potential environmental toxins, I’ve chosen organic bedding for Charley. I even opted for an organic mattress since, even though it may not feel like it, he spends much of his time sleeping. I love that Zack & Ali have used organic cotton for their pillows and pillowcases. We chose the safari print because Charley loves animals and I inadvertently created a safari/elephant theme in his bedroom. I was just looking around his room the other day and realized how many elephants were in there: his lamp base is an elephant, he has two framed and matted pictures of an elephant and a giraffe, he has a huge animal print on the wall from Oilo, and his WubbaNub pacifier is even an elephant. And of course he has a big stuffed elephant courtesy of one of his grandmas. So as you can see, this pillowcase fits right in!
As you can see, he loves his pillow! I think toddlers appreciate having something for themselves. I can already see how Charley wants to be like mama or daddy in different ways. He likes to wear a hat like daddy, he likes to drink out of his own straw like mama, and I think having his very own pillow makes him feel special and grown up!
