Boots Travel Pillow
Advantages: Handy, comfortable
We travel quite a bit, be it on a plane or in the car and for longer journeys I like to take a travel pillow with me. I generally use this on a plane more than I would in a car but sometimes it is nice in a car. What I hate about taking a nap in the car (and I do it quite often at the moment now that I am breastfeeding in the middle of the night) is that the headrest is never in the right place, even if you attempt to move it and so when you wake up you always have a really sore neck and your husband telling you that your head was bobbing backwards and forwards the whole time you were asleep. With this travel pillow there is no crooked neck and all you have is a nice fresh feeling after a little power nap in the car.
According to the packaging this Boots travel pillow has been designed for comfort whilst travelling & to support the head whilst sleeping upright. The pillow is pretty basic, its not a nice soft, feather filled pillow, its use a blow up pillow but it gives you a bit of comfort and supports your neck which is the main thing. The pillow is a blow up pillow so when it is deflated it packs up quite small and can be stored in a little travel pouch that comes with it. It's easy to blow up and you don't need a pump to do it, you can just use your mouth to do it. Once you have finished blowing it up you can Push the valve back into the plastic holder inside the pillow so it is not uncomfortable when you rest on it.
The pillow wraps all he way around your neck and because it is quite tight it will stay there when you move so you can rest your neck behind you or to either side. Its not so tight though that its suffocating or anything like that. The pillow is black and is plastic although it has a velour material on it to make it more comfortable which it is. The only thing I would say is that its a bit scratchy on the seams but you can just reposition it and it should not bother you.
Obviously you can't wash this, you just need to wipe it clean with a damp cloth or I find a baby wipe works quite well although saying that it doesn't really get that dirty.
The pillow is available at Boots in their travel section and costs just £5.99.
