As we set up her new bed, she asked for a pillow.
I ran upstairs and got out one of our old, flat pillows and put it on her bed.
During the next few nights, I realized I needed to get her a new pillow for her bed...not just an old one out of our closet.
As I searched Amazon, the baby stores around us and talked with my mom-friends, we discovered that what our children actually needed was NOT very easy to find.
Because kids spend so much time in bed (at least they're supposed to) we wanted to give her something of quality.
Because kids can be messy, we knew we didn't want to have to replace a pillow each time she had an accident or dropped it in a puddle on the way to grandma's house, we needed something washable.
Because we care about the environment, we wanted it to be organic.
Because kids are smaller than we are, they need a pillow that's their size, that fits their head.
I'd seen the segment about bromine and Flame Retardants on PBS and knew I did NOT want her breathing in those "supposedly helpful" chemicals as she slept each night. It needed to be chemical free.
Unfortunately, we ran into problems with each pillow we tried. Click here

So we set out to make our own.
We researched so many different kinds of coverings. So many different kinds of fillings. We researched the Organic cotton farms. We researched best, most practical filling.
We hand-crafted our own for her.
Through a LOT of trial and error (and especially the help of mom and dad friends across the country) we arrived on a pillow that we were truly proud to make, truly proud to give, and truly proud to offer to you.
