I looooove this product. I use it on my 4 month old and it works wonders. I have tried the other head supports that go around the head (they don't work). This one works the best!!! I don't have to worry about her head being crooked!

The idea of a product that could actually support a sleeping toddlers head sounds like an excellent one, but I think it's an IMPOSSIBLE task. As soon as our baby falls asleep in the head support, his head still slumps forward the same way it does without any support! Have tried several different brands of head supports, had high hopes for this one because of the reviews and the products from this company are usually pretty good but it's just as bad as the others-does not serve the purpose it was created for. Maybe one day someone will create something that's safe and that WORKS. Don't waste your money. We're back to using blankets to try and support his sleeping head.

Comments about Kiddopotamus and Co Summer Infant Cradler - Ivory Monkey:
My 15 Month old falls asleep often in the car. After we changed her from a infant car seat to a convertible car seat, her poor little head would lean forward. Watching her look so uncomfortable I knew that I needed something to support her head when she was sleeping. I use it when I know she's going to knock out in the car, but I do remove when I know she'll stay up. It's a bit tight to keep it on all the time. Although it's a pain to take it off and on, I still feel for the price and how it helps it's worth the extra 2 minutes to take it on and off.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Buy something else
This item is not comfortable for my baby. The way the Velcro is set up does not allow enough room to comfortably fit around her head. You could just set the pieces on either side but then it's not at all secured and moves position easily. I would recommend you try something else. We ended up just rolling up a receiving blanket to steady her head. I'm returning.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Grandparent
I purchased this for a baby shower gift because my daughter had one when her children were babies. Very effective to keep the little one's head from bobbleing around unsecured, expecially when they are unable to hold their head up on their own.

I bought this craddler since my baby has torticollis, to help support his head since it always fall to the right, but I cant use in the car seat because it squeeze his head, so I have been using it at home.
Baby hated it

It did a great job of holding her head straight but she hated it

This product is great, does what you need if you don't have a head support with your seat.
These banana supports lacked appeal
By Grannie "T"
from Saginaw, MI
I purchased the product because I wanted to give extra head support for my 7 month old granddaughter, when using her car seat. The item was soft but I found it to be clumsy and it didn't hug her head like it claimed. It proved to be more of a hindrance than an aid, so I returned it.
By Annie Oakley

This product works as great as the packaging says it does! It fits snugly in the carseat on each side of my baby's head to stop her head from flopping over. It works so well, that I don't even need to Velcro them together or in place. I'm also putting them directly beside her head, not where the seatbelt strap is. I love that they come apart, because individually they don't work half bad as tummy time pillows! The only problem, is my baby girl, only two months of age, seems to prefer her head in the awkward flopped over position. :). Get it, it's not too much money to waste if your child doesn't like it and not too difficult to repurpose in my opinion. I would actually prefer the straps to come off, since they don't work so well for me. But it's only a minor complaint.
Did not like it!
Too bulky, for the car city.
I would recommend this product
i bought the product for my 9 month old grandson. I like the fact the it is not to bulky. Wish that it came in darker colors.
