bedgear Introduces New Performance Pillow Designed Specifically for Toddlers

By Gretchen Kast bedgear Performance Bedding is expanding its product line-up of performance bedding es- sentials with a new toddler performance pillow. With the introduction of this new pillow, bedgear aims to help toddlers sleep cooler and more comfortably with optimal airflow and support around their head, neck and shoulders. “Our product development team has de- signed this pillow with a ‘cuddle curve’ shape

for a toddler’s specific proportions,” explained Eugene Alletto, Founder & CEO of bedgear. “Using an adult pillow on a child places un- necessary strain on a toddler’s neck and shoulders leading to discomfort, sleepless nights or poor posture.” At 12" by 18" in size, the bedgear toddler performance pillow is uniquely designed for children ages two to four years old. The pillow features a Dri-Tec heat- and moisture-wick- ing surface and is filled with buoyant Boost

support. The Patented Air-X ventilated panels around entire pillow enhance air flow while preventing allergens and dander from enter- ing inner core. “Young children tend to sleep hot at night and need a comfortable environment that supports the rejuvenation of their rapidly growing bodies,” Alletto continued. “We ac- complished this for toddlers, using our prov- en fabric technologies to wick away heat and moisture, plus our patented airflow side pan- els on all our pillows, facilitating better rest. We are constantly innovating new products with breathable, temperature-regulating per- formance features to deliver personalized sleep systems for the entire family.” Available in grey or seafoam color, the toddler pillow comes with a hypoallergenic, odor- and stain-repellant waterproof cov- er that allows High Efficiency Wash—with energy-efficient low heat, air only or line dry. Each pillow is filled and assembled at bedgear’s Rock Hill, SC factory and will re- tail for $39.99. Visit
