Comfy baby pillow for a good night’s sleep
For older babies, a baby pillow can be one of the best things to enhance sleeping at night. A good, baby head protection pillow will keep your baby soothed at night, providing proper head support and ensuring that the baby gets the best sleep they can get. Consider getting a baby pillow and bolster set for good night’s comfort.
Frequently asked questions with baby pillows and bolsters
When can babies use pillows and bolsters?
As a general rule, you should only give baby pillows or baby bolster to aid your baby to sleep only after they turn 18 months old. This is because any earlier puts the babies at risk, especially if they sleep separately from parents. As a substitute, for newborns, consider getting baby blankets instead, which are enough for them to get a good night's sleep.
What do pillows and bolsters help with?
Baby pillows can help to prevent plagiocephaly or 'flat head' syndrome, which allows you to shape your baby’s head nicely. They also provide support for the head and neck when sleeping, and are overall good for baby head protection. Baby bolsters, on the other hand, are good for back and arm support for your baby while they sleep.
How to choose a pillow or bolster for my baby?
You should choose your baby pillow or baby bolster based on these four aspects: material, filling, support and size. Choose a good breathable baby pillow that is kind to your baby’s skin. Stick to synthetic fibre filling or memory foam to avoid any skin issues. The bolster or pillow should not be too firm or too soft to provide ample support, and pick a good size to accommodate your baby’s growth.
