toddler pillow?

Trying to move DD (21 months) into her own bed ... I keep coming across references to a "toddler pillow." What is this? What do you use for your little ones? I was just going to get her a nice soft "down" pillow.

I just went to a pillow, put it in the crib, then moved it into the "big" bed when it was time-we don't do toddler beds, either..............

Hmm, not sure. DD still doesn't use a pillow and she just turned 2. She's still in the crib and has never used one.

I made a little "throw pillow" that DD#1 uses as her pillow. I've also made her a pillow and blanket set, but my design had some flaws (hello bad fabric for a pillow!) ... http://www.flickr.com/photos/haileymarie/439086334/

Re: toddler pillow?

IKEA has some awsome toddler pillows. down-like, but washable. not too soft or hard and not overstuffed. perfect size for a toddler (or traveling in the car)

Re: toddler pillow?

We use crib wedges as pillows for our kids so I never have to worry about possible suffocation. I'll probably let them have pillows around 5.

Re: toddler pillow?

My daughter co-sleeps with us, but I did want her to have her own pillow once she was about 18 months and she stopped just sleeping on my arm. We didn't have the room for a third full-size pillow, but I couldn't find a "toddler pillow" anywhere I looked - so I just made one. I took a regular pillow, cut it open, took out some of the stuffing, and then cut it about in half. Sewed it back together, made a simple pillow case, and we were good to go.
