Did you know March 10–16 is National Sleep Week? Parents everywhere know it’s vital for children to receive good sleep to help them grown and develop mentally and physically. Tum&Bum sleep chair helps children sleep better, especially if they experience a cough, congestion and allergies. It could also aid in sleep in an unfamiliar location on family travel.

The concept of Tum&Bum is to sit on your bum and lie on your tum. The forward-facing, incline sleep chair puts children at an angle in perfect alignment for combatting upper respiratory infections, persistent cough, allergies, congestion, COVID and RSV as everything drains downward. For ages 2 and up, the chair grows with your child, from a sleep chair to a lounger and, later, a video gaming chair. Towels or pillows can be used for ultimate comfort. Tum&Bum is latex-free; hypoallergenic; and made of medical-grade, 100 percent polypropylene.

Brad Drake invented Tum&Bum as a father of three who faced many sleepless nights, alongside his wife, while their children faced various illnesses. After their pediatrician informed them when toddlers lay down flat to sleep, increased blood flow could inflame the sinuses more, Drake got to thinking. After his sick son fell asleep face down on his chest one night, achieving some relief, he headed to the hardware store for materials and Tum&Bum was born.


Starting at $175, Tum&Bum is available on Amazon.
