From what I've gathered, newborn does not need a pillow. Having a pillow may: - Increase the risk of suffocation: when the baby’s head “sink” into the soft pillow - Increases the risk of SIDS - Lead to overheating: having a pillow may increase the heat between the head and the pillow cover. - Lead to flat head syndrome: due to the constant pressure of sleeping on a pillow - Sprain the neck: when the infant sleeps on a fluffy pillow for long hours And here are some simple tips on how to help your baby sleep well: http://www.thehealthsite.com/pregnancy/have-trouble-getting-your-baby-to-sleep-well-here-are-8-expert-tips-that-work/

My son is used to sleeping with no pillows at all, except during naps when I would put bolster pillow or breastfeeding pillow around him so he could sleep longer while I do stuff. He is five months now. If you opt to buy pillows, buy this kind so you can prevent your baby from having flat head syndrome Photo from aussiebuby.com
