When can you use a pillow and quilt?


Isabelle is nearly 10 months and I was wondering when I can get her one?

I have in my head that its when they are 1 yr old - personally, I will be staying away from quilt/pillow for a while but then I have not actually looked at ones specially for babies - I am just thinking of my huge 13tog superking duvet!!! Anna moves about so much in her cot that it would never stay on - I will need to stick with the sleeping bag for while!

I think not before 1 is the advice, but many reccommend waiting until 18 months. I see it that as the grobags we have are 18 months, I'll probably move on once those are too small to a quilt and maybe a pillow

I intend to use a transition type quilt where is is effectily zipped onto the bottom sheet. The Gro company do them.

ooh they look good. I will consider that when she is older. I am planning on keeping her in her sleeping bags til she outgrows them, but handy to know.

Thanks!

I got Brady a pillow when he was about 10.5 months because he was forever scrunching up into one corner of the cot and resting his head on a teddy which looked really uncomfortable. I got him one of the baby ones though, but it was my choice to do it before year old, it isn't recommeneded until after then.

I've also recently got him a baby duvet as well because he hates to be restricted and will not tolerate a sleeping bag anymore. He only has one at my Mum's house for when he sleeps there as her room is really cold. At home if it's cold I put him in a fleecy sleesuit over his PJ's, although I've only had to do that once so far as the flat is really warm.

My LO didnt have a pillow until he was 18 months old. Didnt feel confident in him having one before this age.

good question

Do they need to have a pillow - i was thinking (it happens every so often ) that my LO seems comfy enough without a pillow, so if I never gave her one would she just continue to be comfy without one? You hear that it is bad for your back to sleep with too many pillows and my mum is always telling me that to sort out a sore neck I should sleep without a pillow, so could they just do without one?!?!?!?
