The Ellie Ears Story


At Ellie Ears™ we have created, and curated a line of products that blend function with style. As a momma of four, I understand the difference between WANTS and NEEDS. We WANT those essential items to be beautiful and fun and reflect the style of families today, and NEED them to be safe, practical and durable. Our iconic Ellie Ears positional support pillow leads the way in all these departments, and is joined by our cuddle blankets and teething loveys. We use 100% cotton fabrics, designed in Canada, and pair them with soft, beautiful, fun textiles and accents. All of our products are made in the Calgary area, as well are the products we have curated from other companies.

Giving back to the community that supports us is near and dear to our hearts. We have partnered with YYC based charity Adele's Over the Rainbow Baskets to help celebrate the arrival of every baby born with Down syndrome in the Calgary area, and beyond, gifting them with a set of Ellie Ears.

 Thanks for taking the time to get to know us!

Ellie Ears is a positional support pillow, designed and made in Canada by a mom of 4, who is also a registered nurse and former birth doula. Providing positional support for babe’s head, neck and spine, this one size fits all pillow is comfortable and functional for newborn babes to preschoolers. Ellie Ears are endorsed by parents and health professionals alike.

The unique design of Ellie Ears surpasses any other support pillow currently on the market. Ellie Ears help decrease the risk, and can aide in the treatment of torticollis and plagiocephaly. They can also help babies with reflux and colic rest easier, and provide much needed support to children with low muscle tone. Ellie Ears replace the rolled towels or blankets often recommended for positional support, which slip and unravel.

In a seated position Ellie Ears frame babe’s head and cervical spine, providing support and correct alignment, thereby helping prevent babe’s head from gravitating towards one position. The thin connector between the "ears" rests in the natural empty space behind the neck, without pushing the head forward. The pillow is lightweight, soft and pliable, thereby continuing to allow for some intentional range of motion.

The connector is thin and wide enough to place babe's torso between the ears, for positioning infants in a side lying position for play time or supervised naps. Ellie Ears can also be used in hiking back packs and carriers, and with older children in stroller or booster seats for additional head support while sleeping on the go, and are an ideal support for children with low muscle tone.

Ellie Ears are multipurpose and can be used for the following:

  • Head & cervical spine support
  • Side lying/sleeping (with supervision)
  • Supported seating
  • Travel pillow
  • Noise reduction
