Cuski Kids Orthopaedic Pillow
Reviewed by Louisa Nashir
Being a mum of a special needs child who has sleep problems is tough and both emotionally and physically draining to say the least so when I was recently given the chance to review the Cuski pillow I jumped at the chance.
In the past my husband and I have tried every trick in the book and every old wives tale to help out 6 year old daughter Kate sleep better but nothing worked!
Kate has Autism and her sleep problems can cause real problems with her school work and also her temper, she can get very nasty when over tired and shouts a lot.
Kate uses a drug called Melatonin to help her get to sleep at night but the drug doesn't keep her asleep and after a few short hours she is up and wanting to play. This can be anytime during the night/morning and occasionally she will stay awake all night!
Upon arrival I was very impressed at how well presented the pillow was in its purple and white bag with plastic carry handles and the reverse was packed with information about the product.
I carefully read everything on the packet and opened it and found a beige bag which not only contained the pillow but also a Cuski pillow cover which felt soft and luxurious and a bright and colourful card which showed other brilliant items from Cuski.
I took the pillow out of the bag and found it to be smaller than regular sized pillows so perfect for a child or baby and I found its design both eye-catching and funky.
The pillow is made from memory foam and has a 100% cotton knitted cover complete with the Cuski logo embroidered onto it.
I lay down as I was curious as to how the pillow would feel and can only describe it in one way… It's the comfiest and softest pillow I have ever tried and my head and neck felt relaxed and fully supported on it.
That night I got Kate ready for bed and she noticed the new pillow and lay down on it after she had taken her night time medicine and within 20-25 minutes she was asleep.
I noticed that night she still woke but didn't toss and turn as much as she usually would.
Over the next few night both my husband and I noticed that Kate was sleeping for slightly longer periods of time and one morning didn't wake until after 6am which is unheard of!
Although Kate still wakes we have found she is happy to stay in bed and is sleeping longer and we can only assume that is because of this fantastic pillow!
As Kate gets older I will be looking again at the Cuski range to see what other products they sell as this one is a dream!
Cuski your products are fantastic and well worth the money.
A huge thank you from this not so tired family.
