The best kid neck pillows will help your little ones zonk out even if they’re miles away from their own bed, which is a must for parents who need to get all the things done. (Is it just me, or do to-do lists get longer with age?) Whether you’re on a cross-country road trip or running errands around town, letting your kids nap in the back seat or stroller while you go about your life is one of the secrets to effective adulting (and maintaining sanity).

Air travel is a whole different beast. It’s true that keeping kids entertained on a flight with their favorite travel-friendly toys will keep those meltdowns at bay, but sooner or later, that kid is going to need a nap. But sleep is short-lived if your tot doesn’t have the right neck support. Otherwise, they’ll have to sleep on you, and you’ll be trapped, and likely have to wake them up so you can pee. We’ve all been there.

These days, there’s way more gear to make sure your kid can sleep on the go, like travel beds and nap mats. (Check out these body pillows for the best naps ever.) But we promise these kid and toddler neck pillows will take your kids’ nap game to the next level, which is really a win for you.
