When should I introduce a pillow?
If you want to introduce a pillow, it’s best to wait until your toddler moves from a cot to a bed. However,you can introduce a pillow at bedtime when having a story snuggled up to you out of the cot.
Stay away from feather pillows, which are too soft, can set off allergies, and can smother a child if his head sinks into it while he’s sleeping. Pillows are not recommended really for children (in the UK) under 2 years old.
We have found the perfect pillow for littlies made from soft fabric and safe to use in bed when your child is old enough to use one.

What our testers thought:
Matthew, 2 years:
‘I went to bed for the first time with my Billy Winky, and thought he was great! I hadn’t used a pillow before now because I’m only 2.
I thought he was lovely- I just lay there stroking him until I fell asleep.
Mummy said I went to sleep very quickly indeed! We love the *Billy Winky!’
*Since this review Matty will now not sleep without his Billy Winky- he loves it so much!
