Got dd a pillow for her cotbed, it's a safety pillow so not a normal pillow and bigger than a cot pillow but I don't have a pillowcase for it.... Aibu to just use a normal pillowcase or is there any danger in that as the pillow is smaller? Dd is 16 months btw....

Just getting a heads up before dh suggests it's dangerous etc....

I used a normal pillow at that age. DD is 5 now and still here.

sorry didn't read the OP properly Blush

Could you cut and sew it to fit?

No time before tonight and am hoping it might encourage her to sleep....

We used a normal pillow from around that age. In a normal pillowcase. Can you tuck the pillowcase in under it?

If my DD is anything to go by, yours will end up everywhere, but on the pillow Grin

a few months ago i stuck a normal pillow in my daughters cot (9 months at the time) and ever since, every night she has slept like a log without fail! so i hope you have the same result and you get a decent kip tonight :) it is sooooo good to get my bed back!
