You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers…

What is the difference between nodpod™ and nodpod™ Exclusive?

The nodpod™ eye pillow feels exactly the same in both versions; the difference is the way you can use it.

With the nodpod™, you can use it in any sleeping position, upright or in any way that feels good to you. It’s the most versatile and portable.

The nodpod™ exclusive version does have one distinct advantage; you’ll never have to wonder where it is. The nodpod™ eye pillow has been modified to snap to the edge of a specially designed pillowcase. The nodpod™ Exclusive is sold exclusively here.

The slit on the nodpod™ looks very small. How does the other side fit through it?

You have to try it to believe it! Simply pull the corner through the slit and feed through with ease as it fans out flat behind your head for a 360* head-hugging experience.

With the nodpod™ Exclusive, what if I want to use my own pillowcase?

We designed for that! The zippered closure allows you to easily slide your own pillowcase over the nodpod™ pillowcase.

For sleeping, how does the nodpod™ stay in place?

The nodpods weighted microbeads mold to the contours of your face and are designed to move with you. Its tension-free design is long enough to accommodate any sleeping position on your pillow.

Can you tell me more about the benefits of gently weighted products?

Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation, famously pioneered by Dr. Temple Grandin, is known for its ability to calm and relax the central nervous system and has been used in clinical practice for decades. It is very simply the practice of applying gentle, constant pressure to the body and is something from which we can all benefit Dr. Grandin describes Deep Touch Pressure as follows: “It is the type of surface pressure that is exerted in most types of touching, holding, stroking, or swaddling. Occupational Therapists have observed that very light touch alerts the central nervous system, but deep pressure is relaxing and calming.” (Grandin, 1992)

Can I wash my nodpod™ in the washing machine?

Yes. Please wash your nodpod™ on a delicate setting in a garment bag.

Is it dryer safe?

Yes, it is dryer safe. Please use a delicate setting in a garment bag. However, for the longevity of your nodpod™, we do suggest air-drying.

Can I microwave my nodpod™ sleep mask?

No. The polyethylene pellets are not rated for the microwave.

Can I freeze my nodpod™ sleep mask?

For an extra cooling sensation, you can put your nodpod™ in the refrigerator or the freezer. For extra headache relief, try it this way!

How does the cool side and the warm side of the nodpod™ work?

One side of the nodpod™ is made of a soft, microfiber fleece that always feels warm and snuggly. The other side, made of 100% jersey cotton, offers a breathable, cooler sensation.

What are the microbeads in the nodpod™ made of? Are they safe?

Yes, very safe. Our microbeads are made of 100% round, polyethylene plastic pellets. These beads are non­toxic, BPA free and hypoallergenic. Polyethylene does not promote surface growth of bacteria, which is why it’s so widely used in medical equipment, children's stuffed animals and food containers.

Is nodpod™ scented?

No, the nodpod™ is scent-free.

Does the nodpod™ come in different weight options?

The nodpod™ was designed with the pressure-perfect amount of weight. If you would like your nodpod™ to feel heavier, one option is to fold it in half, which will double the weight over your face.

Can my child use it?

We recommend the nodpod™ for those 12 and older who are able to independently and correctly place and remove the nodpod™ themselves. Never use the nodpod™, or any weighted product, on or near an infant or impaired person.

Does the nodpod™ sleep mask block light?

Yes. The microbeads mold to the contours of your face creating a custom, light blocking experience.
