Cardiff Travel Headrest, road trips, napsIntroducing The Cardiff Travel Headrest Designed To Help Kids Sleep More Comfortably During Car Rides

Parents, you know that moment when your kid falls fast asleep in the car; that moment you secretly jump for joy because it means some peace and quiet for you. But then you cringe when you hit a bump, turn a corner or go around a sharp curve, knowing that they have a case of “noodleneck” and their head falls over causing them to slump over or even worse, they knock heads with their sibling or friend next to them. Suddenly they are awake again, crying or fighting or simply antsy to get out. Thanks to the innovative Cardiff Travel Headrest, your child’s head will avoid the dreaded “head bob,” staying upright and comfortable for that much needed and much enjoyed car ride nap.

With a flexible design fitting users of all sizes (including adults), the Cardiff Travel Headrest comfortably aligns your child’s head and body upright in the seat as they sleep. It is instant comfort for children riding in cars (adults, too!) and prevents neck pain from being slumped forward or to the side.

Cardiff Travel Headrest 3Helping to achieve that comfort and fit for all users are fully adjustable settings. The padded arms of the headrest feature soft, padded fabric sleeves, which are also removable and machine washable for easy cleaning. When not in use, it simply flips up for stowage completely out of the way.

Co-founder Jason Arriola recalls, “After countless trips in the car, whether after a soccer game or heading up to grandma’s, once the kids fell asleep in the car it was an unsettling feeling to say the least. My twin boys would slide out of their seatbelts with their heads bobbing left and right, my wife and I would call it ‘noodleneck.’”

Cardiff products can be traced back to 1996 when Will Regan and Jason Arriola spent their time skateboarding up and down Southern California. In 2009 that friendship turned into family when Will married Jason’s sister, and now they are business partners set out to prove that family and business do mix.

“Most important to us in business is the satisfaction of our extended family and that’s you. We treat every customer like it’s one of our moms buying from us,” states Jason.

Retailing for $49.99, the Cardiff Travel Headrest is available online for at or in-store at Bed Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Amazon, Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby, and more.

Never dread a car ride again because of a hectic early morning, missed nap, exhausting day or missed bedtime with the Cardiff Travel Headrest. You’ll look in your rearview mirror and smile in satisfaction seeing your kid comfortably fast asleep – and staying asleep – with many quiet miles ahead of you wherever you’re going.
