I have bought this product for each of my kids. I loved the fact that it was soft and conformed to my daughters bodies so that they where not slipping and sliding in there carseat and where actually content being in it. I decided to buy it again for my third child. On seeing it online it says fleece its not fleece. The fabric is more like that of a towel. I thought it would be the soft velour material as before but it's not. I had to wash it in dreft several times just for it to soften up. That is the only downfall about this product. I haven't been able to use it for my son yet but I assume it probably will be a little easier to clean since its terry cloth and not velour.

I'm really sorry to do this review, but feel I must do it. First of all, I've always been pleased with Overstock, but not this time .. I think this product is misleading. It contains only 33% cotton and the rest is polyester! Why write that it is "organic cotton" when in fact it is more polyester than anything else in this product. I must add it is very thin too, not worth the price. Put your money on better things.
This item was purchased as a gift, but the insightful first-time-mom-to-be already knows that this head/body support product will have a variety of uses during the newborn stage. Based on her excitement, I am considering surprising her with another one to save her from having to move it from item to item. I only wish they had such practical/comfortable items 27 years ago!
