Is a pillow pet an okay gift for a 4-5 month old?

My aunt just had a baby a few months ago.. She will be around 4-5 months at Christmas time. I couldn't think of anything to get her and I found a good deal on a pillow pet today, so I just bought it. I planned on giving it to her, but wondered if she's too young? My DS had one before he was a year old and he loved it.. but he was already walking by then.

So, whatcha think? Okay to give it to her?

DS got one from family when he was born.  It is basically a stuffed animal.  I see no issue with it.  Of course with all stuffed animals babies need supervision, but other than that it should be fine.

 my sister got one for DD around that age... she loved it at tummy time. I would flaten it out and lay it down so it was looking at her.... she would smile & bable & just chat with it... so cute. obviously I was right there so she was safe. but she liked that it was eye level with her and not a stuffed animal that sat up.

I would think its ok! But in my house we have a no stuffed animal rule lol. My mom and grandma ALWAYS bought stuffed animals before this rule was put in place. We have a ton.

It's fine :) Something cute, and something simple. Wont take up lots of room, and she can keep it for years to come :)

My youngest got one for her first Easter (she was 2 weeks old) at her big sister's request (sis was 4 at the time) - my odlest dd's logic - she and ds got their pillow pets for Easter the year before, and Meghan needed one too. . . . she's 18 months old now, and just starting to carry it around, so it was definitely something she needed time to grow into, but I'd rather go with a gift like that than something that will be outgrown in a matter of months  :)
