When to give a baby a pillow?

Are you wondering if it’s safe for your child to begin sleeping with a pillow?

This is a normal phase for every parent. Introducing blankets, pillows, and toys to your baby is a step we all make after they reach a certain age, but it’s important to know when and how to do so safely.

In all honesty, a baby doesn’t need more than a flat, bare surface for sleeping. There’s little need for them to have a pillow, and with slight risks remaining, it isn’t always worth taking that chance.

Experts have said that it isn’t until 18-24 months that all risks of pillows in cribs are eliminated. Younger babies with the ability to roll and move around may still be at risk for suffocation against a pillow until at least one year of age.

You can't be too careful to choose baby bedding products. That's way i highly suggest you to try Biloban toddler pillow.

1. Measuring 13” X 18”
2. Hypoallergenic Cotton pillowcase & soft, safe and breathable polyester cluster fiber filling
3. Ergonomically designed and tested on toddlers for the best neck & spinal support
4. Envelope closure design prevents risks of choking hazard and suffocation
5. Machine washable and easy to clean

With the right pillow, you still need to make sure to test it first and keep a close watch on your baby in the first couple of days of use.

There’s no magic age your child can safely sleep with pillows, blankets, or stuffed animals. The trick is to keep an eye on their development and gauge what they need and what they’re ready for as you go.
