When is it Safe For Baby to Sleep With a Pillow?

Teething-Baby-chewing-on-crib-rail-.jpgBabies should sleep on a flat surface free of pillows, blankets or other soft bedding until age 1, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics' safe sleep guidelines. The only thing her crib needs is a simple fitted sheet.

Still, there’s no need to celebrate your little one’s first birthday by getting her a baby pillow. You’re better off waiting until shetransitions to atoddler bed,  which can happen between 18 months and 3 1/2 years old (though ideally as close to age 3 as possible). And it’s fine to hold out until she shows active interest in having one.

When the time does come to give your tot a baby pillow, avoid the fluffy adult-sized models in favor of a small, firm toddler pillow. And keep extra fabric out of the mix by skipping the pillowcase.
