Q.

pillow and bed for an 18 month old

hi there i would like to know if it is ok to put an adult pillow in our little girls cot - she is 18 months now?? If so is hollow fibre or feathers safer? She is still sleeping in a camp cot but is quite tall and was wondering when she would be alright to sleep in a bed?

She can sleep in a bed if you are happy that she won't fall out. I would not recommend an adult pillow. Rather use a cot pillow which is not filled with feathers.
