Sleep is an ongoing battle in our house. Every time we think we have it beat, we have a routine in place, something comes along and throws it out again. The last few months, even though Poss has been doing great things in other parts of her life, sleeping is deteriorating.
In the past it’s always been a sign that there’s something amiss. Whatever it is still yet to show it’s head, but while we wait, we’re all fighting the sleep battle with her. She wants us in the bed next to her, to hold her, to wait until she’s asleep before leaving her side.
So we’re willing to try just about anything.
When the lovely people at Ultimate Sleep offered us the chance to try one of their Comfort U pillows for Poss, we welcomed the chance. I never really thought about our pillows. A pillow is a pillow is a pillow, yes? No. Apparently not.
This one is designed to surround you, making you feel safe and cosy, apparently helping in reduce anxiety and assisting in deep pressure therapy. I don’t know about all of that, but Poss has taken to Pilly (yep, she’s named the pillow…) like nothing else.
The poor thing has been dragged from one end of the house to the other, up and down off the floor and he even went with her to camp. So far, it’s held up remarkably well. But thank god it’s washable and comes with a removable cover!
Because we were so jealous of Poss’ new pillow, the Ultimate Sleep team also gifted husband and I with some new pillows to try as well. I have to say, it took a week or two of sleeping with them for me to feel comfortable; they’re much softer than the ones I’ve used before, but it was worth sticking with it. They are awesome. I can’t tell you how lovely it is to sink into each night.
We would hate you to miss out on all this pillow goodness. So the lovely Ultimate Sleep team have offered me two pillow packs to giveaway, containing two teen pillows worth $118 each.
All you have to do is tell us the craziest thing you’ve done to help your kids fall asleep. You’ve got until Friday 20 June and the competition is only open to Australian entrants. Poss and I will pick the winners and you’ll be notified by email. Good luck!
