Baby pillows and stuffed toys are widely promoted by their makers as a safe and effective way to make your baby feel more comfortable while asleep. Recent studies, however, indicate otherwise. Researchers have found that baby pillows, plush toys, quilts, and even loose blankets in a baby’s sleep environment may cause accidental suffocation and death.
In fact, 92 deaths associated with pillows, quilts, and loose blankets have been recorded between 2006 and 2008. Experts suggest removing any plush toys, loose blankets, pillows, and quilt before putting the baby to sleep. They also believe a flat mattress with a firmly fitted sheet is all they need during sleep. To make your baby warm and comfortable, experts suggest dressing him or her in footed pajamas or a baby sleeping bag instead.
