DD is sound asleep in cot with a pillow, she wakes quiet a few times in night normally and last couple of nights has slept with me on a pillow as she has has a cold. I have put a pillow in her cot tonight am i mad?????
Mine had a pillow around then. You know your baby best, if you think she'll be ok, won't try an wriggle underneath or has the strength to move it, then I would. But like mummytummy says, it is discouraged by professionals.
My ds has had a pillow since he was six months and has never even moved it let alone wriggled under it. I think there is a concern that babies may get under it somehow and not get out again, FSID say no pillows until a year.
I found propping the cot up with books etc. just meant he slid down the cot and ended up in a snotty heap at the bottom. I never thought of putting the pillow under the mattress cover (doh!).
i have tried tilting the vot but she just moves around so much ends up up side down wronf way up, so will be tilted the wrong way. By now she is normally other way up but with pillow she is still lying peacefully on her back, and last two nights with me has not moved at all....
