Can I give my 17 month old toddler an adult pillow for her cot bed?
I put on in earlier just for trial purposes and she seemed to absolutely love it. Is that ok safety wise? I mean other than size what's the difference between a toddler and an adult pillow? The pillow fitted well into her cot bed.
I've been wondering the same thing. my daughter pees through her nappies, so if she wets her cot, half the time she wets her pillow too, and it has to go in the wash. If it's bad weather it can take days to dry, so she's without it for all of that time. I was contemplating just getting a spare for her, but an adult one because the toddler one we bought from Mothercare was expensive and frankly, terrible.
It said it was machine washable, and it is, but the stuffing went all clumped up and formed little balls after the first wash, leaving other parts of the pillow totally empty and without any stuffing at all. You can try to move it about so it's more even, but it's still mangled. Ever since then I've wondered how my LO can sleep on it if it's bumpy like that. Not good IMO.
