DO BABIES NEED TO SLEEP WITH A PILLOW?

At what age do babies require a pillow? 
What pillow is best for them?

The littlest ones amongst us generally don’t need a pillow, because they sleep on their backs. This is unlike adults, because we don’t solely sleep on our backs, we also sleep on our sides and even on our stomach. And that’s why we need a pillow, because our necks aren’t supported in any other sleeping position than on our back. A pillow provides that extra support. Another reason adults use pillows is to stop their partners snoring, letting them know enough is enough.

The best sleeping position for babies is on their backs, making a pillow redundant. My daughter for example has a pillow, but only because she likes having one in her bed. She enjoys tucking both her hands underneath the pillow and snuggling it. 

I call it a pillow purely because of its shape, but really it’s filled with the finest down quality. This makes it extremely light and airy. You might consider it more of a stuffed animal than a pillow. As my daughter grows up, we will make sure her pillow slowly grows with her, adding more filling as she needs more neck support throughout the years and ages.

Basically we say, to each their own, everyone is different and has their own preference. Pillows for babies are not a must, but your child might enjoy having a pillow.
