How do we use our Ellie Ears Pillow?

Head Support: Place baby in their supported seating device (swing, bouncy chair, stroller) or laying flat on the floor, bassinet etc. Slide the thin connector between the "ears", behind baby's neck, with pillows framing baby's head. The connector rests in the natural empty space behind the neck, without pushing the head forward.

Body Support: Place Ellie Ears pillow on a firm flat surface. Lay baby’s body between the pillows, on the connector, in the desired position - side lying or flat on their back. Adjust and tuck pillows for comfort and support

How do we wash our Ellie Ears Pillow?

All of our products are cold wash, tumble dry - do you think a momma of 4 would have it any other way?
