Newborns shouldn’t use pillows:) it’ll make their necks bend, and may block their airways. A good, firm mattress is all they need

Erm y would you want pillow for baby? It’s dangerous to have pillow around baby when they are sleeping this is to prevent SIDS

Newborns should sleep on a flat surface, no need for a pillow :)

Beansprout . But i used it only after 1 year old .
