The Babymoon Pillow was created when designer, Kelly Su couldn’t find a solution for her 3 month old’s “flat head”.

When kids lose a tooth the first thought parents often have is: What do I do with it? Many encourage their child to put the tooth under the pillow where the tooth fairy will come and substitute the tooth with a special gift. What is done with a lost tooth differs by culture and ranges from throwing the tooth up to the sun or over the roof; feeding them to an animal (usually a mouse); burying; hiding; or burning. You can help customers share the occasion by offering a range of “tooth fairy” items to be enjoyed from Maison Chic, Baby Tooth Album, Whitepigeon Enterprises, and Pink Poppy.
