A kids body pillow might be the answer to getting your child the good night’s sleep they’ve been missing. When it comes to sleep, it all begins with the right pillow, whether it’s ones for tiny toddler noggins or even one for you. We all experience some form of discomfort when trying to sleep, even our kiddos. It doesn’t matter if they sleep on their sides, backs, or tummies, bodies can get very picky about which position they need to be in.

So to avoid a restless night of trying to keep kids’ backs and hips comfortable, it’s worth introducing a body pillow.

What are body pillows used for?

Body pillows for kids and toddlers can help with a lot of things. Here’s one example: Back pain can be caused by the positioning of your kids’ knees while they’re sleeping — especially if they like to sleep tucked up in a ball. According to Healthline, placing a pillow between the knees can help relieve discomfort in that area. This is because the spacing from the pillow aligns the hips, pelvis, and spine. This can be done with individual pillows or it can be done with the help of a body pillow. The full-length body pillow spans the length of the body so it can also provide support to their chest and stomach as they “hug” it while they sleep.

Now to help decorate that new bed your kid just got, we found some of the best kids body pillows and fun, washable covers. The styles range from your standard-looking pillows to giant stuffed animals that can double as a pillow or a cuddly friend. Sweet dreams!
