  • No. they don't need one. My son started using one when he went to a big bed.

  • When my son had a cold last month we put one under his sheet to help prop him so he could breath. Unless they're sick I wouldn't recommend it.

  • My DD is 15 months and doesn't use one; I'm concerned about suffocation and her using it to climb out of the crib.

  • No. If they need to be propped up, put a sheet under the crib matress.

  • I wouldn't. if he/she is sick then prop up the mattress.

  • No, it's not safe and they don't miss it if they're not used to it.  My 21 month-old still sleeps happily without one.
