Featured Product – madii & dyl Teenii Tot Latex Pillow

madii & dyl is a company from Australia that specializes in eco-friendly and hypoallergenic pillows for babies, toddlers, and children.  If you have a sensitive child or a child with breathing problems such as asthma you know how difficult it is to find bedding that doesn’t harbor dust mites.

From the madii & dyl website:

Made from 100% certified organic latex our pillows contain no chemicals, are hypoallergenic and naturally resistant to dust mites, mildew and bacteria. Designed for comfort, its softness, support and innovative design makes it the superior choice in children’s bedding. All pillows come with polyester pillow protector and pure cotton pillow case.

When I read the statement I was curious – what is “certified organic latex?” Is that a good thing?  It sounds like it would be good because it’s organic, right?

Actually, I’ve learned that natural latex foam is made from the milk of a rubber tree.  If it were synthetic latex it would be made with crude oil.  There are actually a few different types of foams that are used in making mattresses and pillows; polyurethane foam, latex foam, and soy or bio foam.  According to an article I found from the Healthy Child, Healthy World organization the preferred material for foam mattresses and pillows is natural latex because it is the only process that is free of polyurethane.

More on the madii & dyl pillows:

  • Available in 3 different sizes.  Sooki Baby (3mo-18mo), Teenii Tot (18mo+), and the Mini Me (4 yrs+)
  • Provide proper neck support and spine alignment
  • Perfect for allergy sufferers
  • Washable and should last up to 5 years

Personal experience:

We’ve been using our Teenii Tot for 2 months now and it’s a nice sized pillow for my tot.  She only suffers from asthma related issues when she has a cold but having asthma myself and I can see how this will be a nice pillow for her to use.  I love that it is washable.  We’ve fallen into the “Pillow Pet” trap (daddy brought it home for her right after our Teenii Tot arrived) and she loves her unicorn and insists on taking that to school with her.  It’s huge, harbors dust mites, and isn’t exactly the most ergonomical pillow…but she loves it!  I’m hoping that the unicorn won’t last for 5 years!  As for the Teenii Tot – the way my tot has behaving I’ll be lucky if this pillow makes it 5 years.  Here is a glimpse at what she did to the pillow after she unzipped the pillow case and the inner casing – who would have thought toddlers could be so destructive at nap time?
