How to choose the best toddler pillow for your child?
1) Elasticity of the pillow
- Most pillows have some extend of elasticity. When you choose a pillow, you could use fingers to test whether the pillow has a rebound effect. If the pillow has been used for a while the pillow will lose its rebound effect, and one should change to a new pillow.
2) Proper Slope of pillow
- The proper slope of pillow can ensure whether the infant can maintain a normal breathing while sleeping.
3) Material of pillow
- Let’s say that your child is allergic to wool. It goes without saying that you would not buy your toddler a wool pillow, which would only aggravate his allergy. By being aware of what your child is and isn’t allergic to will help you narrow down the perfect toddler pillow. Also, when purchasing a pillow make sure if the pillow is machine washable or not.
4) Film vs. soft pillow
- You will need to strike up a delicate balance between comfort and support. If you press down on a pillow and it does not regain its shape then the pillow is too soft and is unsafe for your toddler to use as it poses a suffocation risk.
