Dreampad Reviews

"As a medically diagnosed insomniac, I think this pillow is a miracle. Aside from being the most comfortable pillow I have ever slept on, it also converts music to gentle vibrations that only you can hear."

Agata G., Mothering.com

"I am a finicky sleeper, have my own down pillow which I travel with and I couldn’t get used to the different feeling of the Dreampad. So I put it under my regular pillow and it works great. The music vibration carries through and I can hear it well. I set it to play through the night and when I wake up it puts me back to sleep. Thanks!"  

J. L. Price

"We started out using this with our son to help him go to bed. It worked great and then others in the family started using it when they had trouble sleeping. We’d like to buy a few more."  

Bruce Cheeseman

"The Dreampad was surprisingly calming; vibrational music snuck directly into your head is a comfort that I’ve been waiting for just as long as bath towel warmers. The Dreampad is like a bath towel warmer for your tired, anxiety ridden brain."  


"I tried it yesterday afternoon to see if I could actually fall asleep with it for a little cat nap, which I usually can’t do, even when I want to. The music is beautiful, and the sound quality is amazing. Hearing the music coming to you internally is also a unique and pleasant experience. Sure enough, I fell into this exquisite sleep, waking up much refreshed. The pillow itself is also quite comfortable. I thought it might be too small, but it’s really not. Then, I gave it to my son and told him to just go rest for a while after homework. That was around 5:00 pm. Sure enough, he fell asleep and didn’t wake up until I rousted him at 7:00 am the next morning! He loves it. Now my eldest daughter is asking me to use the pillow every night! She is the one who often has trouble falling asleep and always sleeps very lightly. I’m particularly amused that she wants to use the pillow because, as a teenager, she normally rejects all my well-intentioned, new-fangled ideas. So, she must like it, or she’d never ask for it in a million years…"

"This selection of peaceful sounds coupled with the unbridled support and comfort of the memory support pillow, equals one of the best nights sleep that I've ever had! I used to struggle with getting to sleep, then staying asleep. Not anymore, with the help of the Dreampad! After my experience with this pillow, I purchased one for my husband and each of my children also. It's the best investment I've made in a long time."  

Sarah Wilson

"First, I must say this is the most comfortable pillow I’ve ever slept on. That includes times spent in hotels while traveling and we’ve stayed in some very nice hotels…I also found that I was able to sleep more soundly, and get a full-nights’ rest… having a soft, luxurious, pillow that helps me to get the rest I’ve searched for my entire life is priceless."  

Renée Saunders

"So we got the pillow Saturday morning and tried it out for nap. OMG he was asleep in like 10 mins. I thought maybe it was a fluke, so tried it for bedtime. Same thing! Then for nap on Sunday. We didn’t even have to lie down with him. You have no idea how much this has helped us. It would normally take him over an hour to fall asleep, and I had to lie down with him for every nap and bedtime. He has never ever fallen asleep without me next to him. I am so thankful for this."  

Stevie A.

"I’m not usually one to gush about a product and the major difference it has made for my family…unless I wholeheartedly believe in it. This, I have told so many people about."  

Krista Supik

"I ordered the Dreampad as a present to myself, and after 2 nights noticed significant improvements in quality of sleep, relaxation, energy, and well-being."  

P. Olivier

"This is a tool I use for all different types of patients, from mild stress to insomnia it seems to trigger the relaxation response. If you’re using it, your bed partner can’t hear it, doesn’t feel it, although they’ve been known to steal it!"  

Michael Breus, Ph.D., ‘The Sleep Doctor’

"As a mom, I appreciated that the device and cords all zipped up into the pillow. It didn’t leave any uncomfortable bumps, and it didn’t leave my son playing with the phone all night when he was supposed to be sleeping!"  

Kaylene Whitaker

"The music -- it works. As much as I love having the full-size pillow and (thanks to the music) falling asleep faster in my own bed, I must say the difference the DreamPad has made for me is the most evident when I've traveled using the smaller/pillow insert. The last two trips I've taken the smaller pillow insert fits perfectly in my luggage, and has me asleep within minutes. That is a miracle. And I wake up feeling so much better/prepared/ready for the day ahead. It's made all the difference in my career! That -- I didn't expect."  

Beth Wray

"I bought one pillow for my husband, and one for our 47 yr old son, both very poor sleepers, affecting their overall health. These pillows have allowed them both to get good, quality sleep at last. Great!"  

Sallie G.

"I love, love, love the Dreampad. It is always my go to tool for my students. I can’t tell you how much my parents love it too once they try it. It is a game changer!"  

Julia Reddout

"I have recently become aware of iLs and the Dreampad. It is truly amazing to see how helpful it is for my daughter, who is smack in the middle of the angst of high school."  

M.L., Ph.D.

"Thank you for this product. I had a head injury 14 years ago from a car crash and I’ve had difficulty sleeping since then, until using the Dreampad. From my first night trying it, I have been sleeping really well, many nights not waking up at all. Wish I’d had this a decade ago!"  

Carla Rothstein

"Pretty amazing device…I had used CDs for years but this is another level, I fall asleep faster and sleep deeper…"  

Bill Walton

"I tried the Dreampad and found that I don’t like music when I am going to sleep, even though it is pretty relaxing. I was about to return it for a refund when my wife tried it. She loves it, uses it every night. Now I have to get one for our daughter."  

C. Laughton

"I have always had problems sleeping. During the past couple years I would normally sleep 4-6 hours of choppy sleep a night. I got a Dreampad, and I fell in love with it. Finally, I am able to fall asleep quickly and stay asleep. I went from getting 4-6 hours a night to getting a good 7-9 hours of sleep a night."  

Thomas G.

"I don’t have insomnia or a serious sleep problem but I do have those nights where my mind won’t stop racing. With the Dreampad, I fall asleep faster and feel better when I get up. I don’t know if it’s the music, or the vibration, or both, but it takes me to another place where my mind isn’t so active and stressed out. Good product and totally worth the money."  

E.M. Shannon

"The Dreampad has helped my son fall asleep faster, sleep more soundly, and wake up happier each morning. He has learned to turn it on himself and makes sure that it is on each night. It is comfortable and the sound is nicely adjustable for his comfort."  

S. Blackwell

"I run a small clinic and have quite a few clients with sleep and anxiety issues. The Dreampad has helped tremendously with prep for in clinic therapy as well as addressing sleep issues interfering with cooperation and performance. Have seen some amazing results."  

Darlene Boudreaux

"I purchased an iLs Dreampad in desperation for my seven year old son with anxiety. It was my last resort before medication to help him to sleep. We were absolutely astounded when he immediately started sleeping with it! It was like a miracle! Before the Dreampad we had asked him to draw a picture of “bedtime.” He drew a picture with his hands on his head, screaming, with a word bubble that said, “Why can’t I sleep!” A week after sleeping on the pillow we asked him to make another drawing. He drew a picture of himself with his eyes closed, smiling, and music notes coming out of his ears. I asked if wanted to put in a word bubble. He said, “No, because I’m sleeping.” But our joy hasn’t stopped there. Our two-year old started using the Dreampad too! He asks for his music and settles down completely asleep within five minutes! If he starts fussing at night we quickly put back on the pillow and off he goes back to sleep (and mommy and daddy, too!!) I was so skeptical thinking that a pillow could really help our son but I SWEAR this has been an absolute life changer for our entire family. Bottom Line: HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!"  

Kerri Vivathana

"I am an OT. I am trialing the Dreampad with a 6 year old who was taking 45 minutes to one hour to fall asleep. He is generally falling asleep now within 20-30 minutes. THANK YOU."  

Barbara Marshall

"I purchased the Dreampad for my 11 year old with sensory issues. It has made a drastic difference in how she sleeps (no more night terrors) and she is waking up easier. She calls it her music pillow. We have been using it for about a month now and do believe it is worth the cost."  

Tonya Ainsworth

"I ordered a Dreampad at the suggestion of my son’s OT. I started my ASD pre-K son listening to it on a Friday at bed time. My son received a “GREAT DAY” report from his teacher on Monday. By mid-week, his teacher said he seemed much less anxious in class, there were less tantrums, and he just seemed happier than she has ever seen him. For weeks upon weeks prior, his daily school reports were not good. He had difficulty participating and functioning in a loud class of 12-16 special needs students. I was still a little surprised that it could be the pillow, so I stopped using it from the following Friday-Tuesday. My son went back to having his typical difficult days. I reintroduced the pillow mid-week and he started having good days again. In addition, my son has always had trouble going to sleep at night. He seems to enjoy lying/listening and gets a good night of rest now, which has helped immensely. I was skeptical at first, but I’m a believer. Thank you!"  

Rochelle West

"Just wanted to let you know we are extremely pleased with the Dreampad. We now call it the “magic pillow” and my son really likes listening to the music, so much so that he requests it pretty much every night."  

E.S. Minton

"I just posted this in every SPD and Anxiety group I follow. Couldn’t help but share our rave review with you guys. Thanks for a great, if surprising, product!! My son J (9-year old) has sensory and anxiety issues, and has frequent sleeping problems including going to sleep, staying asleep, sleeping in his bed, waking grouchy. Since using the Dreampad, J has slept in his own bed every night but one despite starting a new school. He is going to sleep faster, sleeping more deeply and staying asleep. Waking grouchy has decreased, but needing more time to wake up has increased. He has said the Dreampad really helps him relax, but he has never felt the immediate need to pee first thing when wakes up like he does now!! Not sure if it is a coincidence or an effect of sleeping more deeply, but I’ll TAKE it! I consider it a well-spent $179!"  

T.A. Rose

"The Dreampad has consistently improved the sleep of every patient who has used it. There has also been symptom reduction in patients suffering from PTSD, anxiety, depression and various childhood disorders."  

C. Weiss

"I am an occupational therapist and mom of two boys, one of whom has attention, sensory processing and some behavioral challenges. I purchased an iLs Dreampad at Christmas time and have been letting my 2 sons use it, alternating each night. Their schedule got mixed up and my ‘sensory’ son ended up without the Dreampad for 2 nights in a row. After a couple nights of bad sleep, very bad behavior resulted. Once we got him back on the Dreampad he slept well and the behavior improved immediately. We now make sure he gets the pillow every night. This is what we have noticed since the beginning of January: He is asleep within 30 min or less and is rested when he wakes up. He is less reactive during school work (fight or flight response with assignments). He is more emotionally relaxed and stable. He will go and begin his school work without a fight. He is happier and easier to interact with when things do not go his way. Thanks to all of you and your hard work!!! My son is much happier and it is great!"  

Susan Allred

"I’ve been using the Dreampad pillow for the past couple days and I have to admit that not only is this thing comfortable and perfect for sleeping on your back or side, but I really enjoy the built in speaker that quietly puts me to sleep."  

Chris Mazdzer
Athlete, luger, Olympic silver medalist

"Since we first began using the Dreampad, it has now become part of Joe’s nightly bedtime routine. Anytime I need him to mellow out, we arrange a cozy little spot and turn the Dreampad on."  

Kendra Thomas

"He hasn’t had any night terrors since using this Dreampad…I would recommend this pillow to anyone, children and adults. Especially those who have sleep struggles due to ADHD, other diagnosed disorders, or for those who simply need help relaxing at night."  

Alana Davis

"As family descended upon the house, I watched the pillow being passed around, offering comfort and peace to all that rested their head upon it. It was an amazing resource in a time of trauma. If you or your child struggles with falling asleep or staying asleep, this would be a worthwhile investment."  

Betsy Warner

"This is a life changing, HUGE improvement for him. In the past few weeks, my son has been smiling at me MUCH more frequently. He has also rediscovered his love for drawing and he has been willingly doing his schoolwork without complaint. He’s interested in living life again! We were starting to think he was clinically depressed. But he has been a new kid now that he’s sleeping restfully at night! I can’t tell you how impressed I am with this product!"  

Michelle Thompson

"There were times before the Dreampad where he “slept” for many hours but looked groggy and was pretty grumpy and tired when he woke up. Now he wakes up feeling refreshed and rested!"  

Ami Oliver

"I have been a terrible sleeper my entire life, but with the dreampad I reliably fall asleep within 5-10 minutes and if I wake in the night I just tune back into the waves and I am back to sleep almost immediately. Now I am converting the rest of my family."  

Sarah Ruiz Rakh

"Dreampad is AMAZING! Both my daughter and I are both trying it out, we’re in discussions to buy a second pillow right now. Dreampad plays low level music through a speaker in the pillow, and only the person using the pillow can hear it. I didn’t believe it when I first got the pillow, but I’m totally convinced now."  

Ticia Lawrence

"I use the Dreampad every night. It’s reduced the time it takes to fall asleep. It is calming and reduces my anxiety! I have less frequent nightmares and it helps in falling back to sleep."  


"It has only been two days so far, but the results are extraordinary. We have a three year old that is not able to lay down and go to sleep. Instead, she is awake 2-3 hours. She gets up and down, calls our name, etc. Nothing we try had worked until the Dreampad. The past two nights she has gone to sleep within 30 minutes. Sound asleep. We highly recommend this pillow."  

Mellissa D.

"Our OT recommended the dream pad and we got it. Worth every penny! It was truly a game changer for our son. He is more focused, has less impulsivity and definitely more regulated overall. It makes going to sleep a breeze now! If he is struggling to go down, we put it on right away and he loves his 'music pillow.'"  

Katelyn M.

"The memory foam Dreampad is an amazing experience! The impediment of the dense foam enhances the music for me, somewhat like listening to music in a well designed acoustic hall. I am so happy with this new version!"  

Ann Brownstone, MS OTR/L

"I owe the best nights sleep I have had in 6 years to you and your awesome product. My daughter is a changed girl. Thank you so much."  


"My daughter sometimes has a hard time to get to sleep, with lots of tossing and turning during the sleep, even nightmares... She started using the Dreampad just last night and it looks great, as she fell asleep right after mumbling 'this is so beautiful mmm...'"  


"In her final few years of elementary, my daughter started having trouble unwinding at the end of the day. It was taking her way too long to fall asleep. We knew that sleep was so important for children who were entering their pre teen years, so we really worked hard to find a way to encourage good sleep habits. Ironically, we didn't need to work that hard, we just needed Dreampad in our lives. Thankfully, we found it. Her worries are still there right before she puts her head down at night, but now when her head hits the pillow, they all just seem to fade away. No longer is she having trouble unwinding at night. Thanks, Dreampad for changing our daughter's life."  


"Our 11-year-old daughter suffered most of last year from an undiagnosed illness and as a result, developed numerous secondary issues including insomnia, chronic nausea, debilitating anxiety and refusing to eat. Once we finally got a diagnosis and got things under control, we still had to deal with the aftermath of damage to her little body and all of the secondary problems. Through functional medicine, diet, occupational therapy and the nightly use of the Dreampad pillow, she is at last on the road to recovery. The Dreampad Pillow enables her to fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up actually wanting to eat! We have a new nighttime practice of no cell phones, so with the Bluetooth receiver, I can keep her cell phone with me and make sure she truly shuts downs for the night and is not distracted with texts and snapchats. She gets a good night’s sleep and is ready to take on the world. She is sincerely a brand new kid, and we owe a lot of thanks to the Dreampad Pillow."
