It is not safe to allow your baby to sleep with any pillows. Pillows increase your baby's risk of SIDS, suffocation, strangulation and entrapment. Pillows are not proven to prevent your baby from getting a flat head. Regular tummy time during the day is the best way to prevent your baby from getting a flat spot on their head. You can also move their bed into different positions every few weeks to encourage your baby to turn their head a different direction each night.
