1. Face Down Breathe-Easy Pillow:

Because of our patented airflow system, you can enjoy tanning or resting while on your stomach using your SquidFace™ pillow.
  1. Arrange your SquidFace™ pillow on your resting surface, placing the legs parallel to each other and away from the headring.
  2. Lie down on your stomach, placing the top of the legs in the area between your shoulders and collarbone. The bottom half of the legs will taper down to support your chest. You can knead the top sides of the headring with your thumbs toward the hole to allow a better fit for your cheekbones.
  3. Place your chin inside of the headring with your forehead resting on the top of the headring.

CAUTION: Be gentle when connecting & disconnecting snaps.See "SNAPPING & UNSNAPPING YOUR SquidFace™ PILLOW" explanation below.

If you are large chested you can angle the lower portion of the legs away from your body so they are not under you. It may take a few adjustments of the legs to customize your resting experience with your SquidFace™ pillow. You may also need to take a few minutes to become accustomed to breathing with your face in the headring. Breathe slowly through your nose, as if you are meditating. If you feel like you need a little more air raise the headring slightly by placing your fingers or a magazine under a portion of the headring. Notice how little light comes through to aid in your comfort.

If you find SquidFace™ too high for you in the face down position try the positioning pictured at the left. Turn a pillow so that it is parallel to your body. Place our SquidFace™ pillow long ways across your pillow with the headring hanging down slightly over the edge of your pillow and rest face down in the headring. This allows your body to rest on the SquidFace™ legs that are on top of your bed pillow with your head angled slightly down.






2. Adjustable Pillow for Relaxing:

You can easily enjoy your SquidFace™ pillow indoors, outdoors at the beach or poolside, watching TV, reading, or just enjoying conversation with others while reclining.
  1. Fold the legs over the front of the headring.
  2. Snap the end of each leg to the corresponding snap at the top of the headring.
  3. Lay the back of your head onto the legs with your neck & shoulders at the bottom of the headring.
  4. Adjust the legs under your neck & shoulders for your own personal comfort.

CAUTION: Be gentle when connecting & disconnecting snaps.See "SNAPPING & UNSNAPPING YOUR SquidFace™ PILLOW" explanation below.





3. Back of the Head / Neck Rest

You can customize your SquidFace™ pillow in 2 different positions to gently cradle your head & support your neck to prevent your head from rolling to the side if you fall asleep while lying on your back. These are also enjoyable positions to take a nap while traveling with the seat reclined or for exercising while lying on your back.
  1. Snap the ends of the legs together.
  2. Fold the legs under the headring as in the picture.
  3. Lay the back of your head into the headring and adjust the legs under your neck for more or less support of your neck as desired.   

OR

  1. Lay the back of your head into the headring and adjust the top portion of the legs under your neck for more or less support of your neck as desired. Swing the ends of the legs away from you. For some these positions may reduce snoring while sleeping.

6. Under-the-Covers-Over-Your-Face Pillow:

Sometimes there is just too much light that keeps you from resting. Enjoying your SquidFace™ pillow as a face cover keeps out light and still lets you breathe. Your SquidFace™ pillow can be enjoyed in different ways:
  1. Fold the legs over the back of the headring.
  2. Snap the end of each leg to the corresponding snap at the top of the headring.
  3. While lying on your back, place your SquidFace™ pillow headring over your face.
  4. Place the bed covers or a towel over your SquidFace™ pillow and still breathe in comfort. Please be sure your covers do not restrict airflow for your breathing ability.

Or without snapping the legs place the headring over your face and the legs under your neck for neck support.

7. Ergonomic Travel Pillow:

Your SquidFace™ pillow is a wonderful companion while traveling in a car or an airplane. If you are ever delayed in the airport you will be the most comfortable traveler.

This position prevents your head from rolling to the sides if you fall asleep.

  Snapping & Unsnapping Your SquidFace™ Pillow:

It is very important that you be very gentle with the snaps. The snaps may give a snug fit until they have been operated for a while. When snapping & unsnapping please do so very gently. The terry cloth is a very soft, delicate, comfortable material. It is not as rugged as a jacket or a sweatshirt so please be very gentle when operating the snaps. When unsnapping simply hold the bottom snap on the head ring with your thumb while also holding the snap on the leg. This ensures a gentle, firm hold on the snaps when disconnecting and minimizes stress on the soft terry cloth. With care your new pillow will provide you much pleasure.

  Carrying Your SquidFace™:
Weighing about a pound your SquidFace™ pillow is very easy to carry. Just snap the legs together around the handles of your beach or travel bag. Or place the snapped ends over your shoulder. If it is wet place your SquidFace™ pillow in a plastic bag to help keep other items dry.

  Caring for Your SquidFace™:
Your SquidFace™ pillow is constructed of terry cloth and is machine washable. Wash in cold water on the delicate cycle. Hang to dry; DO NOT put in dryer.

  PLEASE NOTE:
It is possible to fall asleep while enjoying your SquidFace™ pillow. The American Cancer Society recommends that you "wear a liberal amount of sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15" while exposed to the sun.

WARNING:
The SquidFace™ pillow is NOT A LIFESAVING DEVICE. Children should use only when supervised by a responsible adult.
