An Overview On Toddler Pillows
As infants turn into toddlers and become more aware of their surroundings, one of their favorite things to do is to imitate their parents. From wanting to wear the same kind of clothes to eating the same kind of food, toddlers are trying their best to be grown up. One of the ways many toddlers like to be like their parents is at bedtime, often wanting to use a pillow like mommy and daddy. Note that while adult pillows are not safe to use for children, you can offer your toddler a pillow that’s made just for them.
A toddler pillow is smaller than an adult pillow. Plus, it’s made out of a firmer material so it’s not as soft and fluffy. These characteristics help to make it safe to use for young children. If the pillow is too large or soft, there is an increased risk of suffocation. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t introduce a toddler pillow until your child is at least 18 months of age and no longer sleeping in a crib. Only introduce a toddler pillow if they are old enough and sleeping in a bed at night. This will help keep them safe.
DWYM Fun Fact
Toddlers are notorious for dragging their pillows and blankets all over the house. They also often drool all over their pillows or get them covered in sweat. In order to reduce bacterial growth, allergic reactions and rashes, it’s important to ensure your toddler’s pillow is clean. Wash the pillowcase frequently with a mild detergent in the washing machine. For the actual pillow, check the cleaning instructions. Many pillows can be washed in the washing machine as well. If not, use a damp towel to scrub the pillow and then let it completely air dry before putting on the pillowcase again.
The Toddler Pillow Buying Guide
- Toddler beds are smaller than adult beds. Similarly, their little heads are smaller than yours. As a result, they do not need an adult-size pillow, nor do they have room for one. Opt for a toddler-sized pillow that is around 13 by 18 inches. This size fits well in their beds and is the right size for their body.
- Take a close look at what materials are used to make and fill the pillow. Go with a hypoallergenic material that reduces the amount of bacteria and mold. Organic cotton is a good choice for pillow coverings. When it comes to the filling, don’t choose an eco-friendly stuffing like buckwheat or hemp. While they are great for the environment, they can be a potential choking hazard for toddlers. They can also cause allergies in some children. You’ll want to look for a toddler pillow that is filled with memory foam or synthetic fiber.
- When it comes to support, choose a firm pillow for your toddler. If it’s too soft, the pillow can pose a risk of suffocation. Check the pillow over time to make sure it hasn’t become too fluffy or malleable.
