Positioning Aids

Dandy Gel-filled Pillows

With Disposable, White or Printed Cotton Covers

DandleLION soft gel-filled pillows are designed to provide a comfortable cushion to meet the support needs of micro-preemie, preemie, and full-term infants. Gel pillows can help reduce the need for frequent re-positioning and make immobilized babies more comfortable. Gel pillows can be used as a mattress for very low birthweight babies or as a prone roll for bigger babies. The thicker Pediatric Gel Pillows come in three sizes: 6” x 7” and 6” x 10” 8″ x 13″ and are effective with older immobilized babies and children.

Our pillows are made from soft, DEHP free polyethylene film that does not react with the gel fill. The pillow covers come in a white or printed cotton and can be washed and reused. The gel is a non-toxic, water based food gel that is resistant to bacterial and fungal growth.
