  • I would think now. My son is 20 months old and I have stuffed animals in there with him and he had at one point, a star pillow, a small one I would put in there with him

  • Can she lift her head up? Can she roll over if she is uncomfortable? I mean, the main reason they say no pillows with infants is because getting away from the pillow is difficult, since it's difficult there is a chance they could suffocate. By 17 months, she is able to escape anything on her face, so it is safe.
