Travelling with Kids? Check out the Baby Head Snuggler Review and Giveaway!

1:22 PM Posted by CalgaryDaddy



Sometimes I come across a new product that is so practical you wish you had thought of it yourself!  As a dad to a six month old baby, I often cringe when I see Kyron's head flopping when he falls asleep in the car seat. Seriously, how uncomfortable must that be.  I often find myself reaching in the back seat and trying (without luck) to to reposition his head back into an upright position.  

 Thankfully a Calgary mom ( my hometown again!) has come to the rescue of families about to hit the road with a product that safely solves the all-to-familiar case of bobbing heads and kinked necks for sleeping little ones. The Head Snuggler fits over the back of the child’s car seat or head rest and holds their head in a safe, comfortable position while they snooze.

“If you have children, you know the problem with sleeping children in the car seat and that’s exactly why I designed the Head Snuggler,” said Melanie Risdon-Betcher, founder of Melrose Kids Inc. and developer of the Head Snuggler. “When I couldn’t find a product that would help my child’s head stay put when they fell asleep in the car I made it my mission to create one!”

  The Head Snuggler™ can be used with most infant, toddler and booster car seats (if a booster seat doesn't have a back it can be used with a vehicle's head rests).  In fact, even kids who’ve grown out of their car seat can use the Head Snuggler™ with the headrests as well. Retailing for $19.99 the Head Snuggler™ is positioned around the back of the car seat and pulled down, resting snuggly across their forehead and eyes if they’d like added shade.


We tried this cool product out and while I originally thought the "look" of the head snuggler was so odd, I quickly got over it when I realized how good it actually works!  Now that we have tried this product, Becky and I are not so worried about travelling long distances in the car with Kyron.

Here is Kyron with his head bobbing wildly!


And here is a shot with the Head Snuggler in place...



Perfect! 
 
The Head Snuggler is available on the Melrose Kids website here http://www.melrosekids.com/products.html  and I think any parent would benefit from this product!

    I have a question about the snuggler. Do you already have it on the top of the carseat and just slip it down onto their forehead once they are asleep? Or do you have to slip the whole thing on once you notice they have fallen asleep? Thanks.
