What began as two high school friends dedicated to finding the perfect pillow for their young children has grown into Ollie Owl: the only range of Australian-made contoured pillows designed by a chiropractor and dedicated to children.
Leigh Sheldrick is a chiropractor with seventeen years experience caring for children and families. After years of recommending adult pillows for her adult patients, the thought struck her that the health community had been neglecting children. With thousands of studies supporting the importance of sleep, very little attention was given to sleeping posture and the quality of our children’s pillow.
To Leigh, this defied logic, as the most important time of our lives developmentally is when we are children. For a quality existence children need quality sleep. This led Leigh on a journey of discovery to establish 5 major contributors to good quality sleep for children.
- A good bed and pillow allowing for good sleeping posture and support
- Good routine to establish good sleeping habits
- Regular exercise and good quality food
- Minimising allergens and unnecessary chemical exposure
Happiness, love and security
With her extensive experience in the health of the spine, one area Leigh felt she could contribute to positively in improving children’s health was sleep. By designing a contoured pillow to improve sleep position and using low allergenic materials to minimising irritants absorbed and inhaled during sleep she could enhance quality of sleep.
