I struggled with weaning my 2.5 yr old for months. He would only fall asleep at night if he was in my arms. Then there was this pillow. He loved the boys sports/balls design & loves how “so soft!” it is. From the very first night we tried it he has fallen asleep on his own & has every night since (over a month later). It perfectly cradles his body which is a huge plus because he is quite the little mover in his sleep. He still has plenty of room to wiggle around but stays nestled all night. Completely and totally recommend – especially for co-sleepers! This is the perfect transition to being able to sleep on his own.
