As adults it is normal and expected we utilize a pillow when we sleep. In fact, sleeping with a pillow can be debilitating and leave us waking up having a stiff neck or perhaps stopping us getting to sleep at the first location.
It is no surprise that many parents wonder if their child would be comfortable if provided a baby elephant pillow .
The reply to the question though, is determined by the time of your child, and also where they are sleeping...
If your kid is younger than two decades old, a pillow is certainly not recommended. A child under this age will generally not require a support for her or his mind and there's always some risk of these suffocating on the pillow. Furthermore, if your child is of the age but has started crawling climbing or walking afterward the pillow could be used as an aid to climbing out of their crib.
Most research indicates that normally a pillow shouldn't be considered until the baby is at least two decades old and is sleeping in a crib but has progressed to a toddler bed.
Even when your child is slightly older however, it is not always necessary for them to use a pillow. If they are sleeping with no pillow then there is no need to introduce you.
If and when you do decide to give your child a pillow, make sure it is an actual 'baby sleep pillow' rather than just one you have in your property. The pillow should be firm the child cannot sink into it whilst sleeping and be smothered or suffocated. It also ought to be smaller than a adult pillow, maybe around the size of a travel pillow and be easily washable for when your child has those little mishaps. If your child suffers from any allergies you will also be able to buy a baby pillow that is non-allergenic
If you remain uncertain as to if the timing is appropriate to introduce a baby pillow for your child's bed you might wish to consider speaking to your doctor to get their input or only waiting until your kid actually asks a pillow or shows any signs of struggling to sleep on a level bed.
