Stop You Kid’s Nodding Head With A Slumber Sling

I could have had used this gadget when Savvy Jr. was younger. You know when they fall asleep in the car and their head gets heavy and falls forward? The Slumber Sling stops that from happening. No more worries about a sore neck and shoulders.

It’s a little pricey at $21.99, though. It looks like it could be easy to sew yourself.
