Wordless Wednesday: Greatest Co-Sleeping Pillow EVER! #ww #linky

I’ve realized over the last few weeks, while talking to other mom’s who co-sleep, that most kids who sleep with their parents are all over the bed and the parents tend to get very little sleep.

We used to have the same problem. In fact, that was the main reason we stopped co-sleeping. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I DO want Gracie sleeping in her crib. Now that she is almost 3, I love my California King bed all to myself & hubs, but on the weekends Mike & I will nap with her in our bed. Or, occasionally when she is sick we will let her sleep with us. She also sleeps with us when we go out of town.

Our life saver?

“The Pillow”. (a.k.a. The Boppy)

See? This is how she sleeps when she sleeps with the Boppy Pillow. (This was at a hotel over the weekend).IMG_0187

But, this is how she sleeps withOUT the Boppy… (This was at a hotel two weeks ago… yes, we had a busy month):IMG_0132

And this was just at one point of the night. She was in a hundred different positions throughout the night and it was so so hard on me. I ‘woke up’ sore and sooo sleepy! Not only do I get beat up in the middle of the night, but I constantly have to worry about her falling out of bed.

But not with The Boppy. She stays put the whole night when she sleeps with her pillow.

I just thought that I would throw this out as a suggestion to parents because lately I’ve been talking to so many parents who have wild sleepers keeping them up all night.

Of course you can’t use this pillow with younger kids or infants. But we’ve been using it for Gracie for about a year now. She was about 1.5 to 2 yrs old when we started using it. You know, past the infant SIDS stage, past the worrying stage.

Anyway, I hope this helps some parents start co-sleeping better! It’s really been a life saver for us!

  1. What a fabulous idea! I love it. When my two year old sleeps with us I have to hold him. He loves it, but not very comfy for me to sleep for a long period of time like that.

  2. Picture #2 is hilarious! Love it.

  3. Wish I would have had one of these when my kids were smaller! My now 12 year old was horrible to sleep with, always moving and kicking. I still have nightmares about sharing the bed with her.

  4. I love my Boppy and wouldn’t be surprised if we’re still using it 5 years down the road too! It’s not just for babies.

  5. Sweet photos.

    Regards and best wishes

  6. Sounds like an awesome solution!
    My daughter still sleeps all over her bed, head and feet in different directions constantly! Since it’s her bed though, I just take pictures and laugh… =)

  7. That is a brilliant idea. My kids sleep like that last photo and it’s no fun when they sleep with you, especially on a trip! LOL

  8. Boppy pillows are the best!! Now I’m wishing I hadn’t given mine away.

  9. Danielle… is your Boppy the original? or the Newborn lounger? I can’t tell in the photo. I have the original, but keep thinking it might be a bit too “full” for my DD to try to sleep on like your DD… but the Newborn lounger looks like it wouldn’t be too full.

  10. We actually have/use 3. One is the original Boppy and two of them are a Target brand. All 3 of ours have been used SO MUCH that they are not full anymore. They have flattened out a bit.

    Thank you so much for the info! I will have to try it out for sure as my DD is ALL OVER THE PLACE! (I didn’t realize the post when under my DH…lol)
