    Bed questions

    Was wondering when everyone let their child start sleeping witha pillow, and what kind of mattress did you buy to put on a twin bed?
    Anmar22 responded:
    I've been letting my 19 month old DD sleep with a pillow at nap time and letting her fall asleep with one at night and then I take it away, I'm still not daring enough to let her sleep all night with one though because she moves around so much. I think my sister has been letting her DD sleep with a pillow since before she was one. I'm not really sure about the mattress, I haven't given it much thought. I'm sure just your average twin mattress would be fine.
    Niclaw replied to Anmar22's response:
    My son is 17 mths and he has been sleeping with a pillow for about 3 months now. I actually went and bought him a pillow pet that he uses. I wasn't sure at first when to give him a pillow but I noticed that when he went to sleep he would ball the blanket under his head. Then I would have to get another blanket to cover him at night. So many blankets in the crib freaked me out.

    Any old mattress is fine unless it is one of the memory foam ones (just think of a giant sponge soaking up any night time accidents). When you get a mattress make sure that you get bed guard rails if the bed is high off the ground (babies r us sells them and you can get them off craigslist). You should also get a waterproof pad or cover to go over the mattress it makes clean up easier.
