The Pillow Crib is intended for babies 0-12 months and is to be used for lounging, supervised napping and tummy time, changing diapers, cuddling and playing. The Pillow crib may also be used to facilitate comfortable sleeping habits, when your child is ready.
Nothing is more important to PillowCrib than the safety of our little customers, and below we list some of our most important Frequently Asked Questions (along with links to all of our Frequently Asked Questions). As always, we recommend you check with your pediatrician about the best practices for your specific child.
Here are some of our most important Frequently Asked Questions and discussion topics concerning safety:
Can I use the Pillow Crib with my baby on their tummy?
The Pillow Crib is meant for babies 0-12 months. It should only be used while babies are on their back, as the best evidence suggests that babies should be placed on their backs until one year of age. However, once a baby is capable of rolling over from back to stomach, and from stomach to back, the infant can be allowed to remain in the sleep position he or she assumes.
Once a child is one-year old, and also capable of rolling from their back to their stomach, and also from their stomach to their back, the child can be allowed to sleep on their side or tummy if that is their preference. However, to reduce the risk of SIDS, you should only place the baby on his/her back in the dock for every sleep until your baby reaches 1 year of age.
Can I use my Pillow Crib in a crib, bassinet and/or play yard?
No. The Pillow Crib should not be used in a crib, bassinet or play yard. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has cautioned that babies should be placed in a bare crib without any additional bedding, blankets or pillows. Furthermore, there is a concern that a young infant who can scoot or crawl out of the Pillow Crib might get entrapped between the side of the crib, bassinet or play yard and the Pillow Crib.
There have been incidents involving other products where babies have suffocated after becoming entrapped between a soft product and the side of a crib, bassinet or play yard. There have also been incidents where babies have suffocated on soft bedding like blankets or soft toys. This is why we warn against using a Pillow Crib in a contained area like a crib, bassinet or play yard, and we also warn that blankets and pillows should not be placed in the Pillow Crib. When it comes to an infant's resting environment, bare is best.
Can I carry my baby in the Pillow Crib?
No. It is not safe to carry your baby in the Pillow Crib. While pillows themselves are very portable, you must remove your baby before transporting a Pillow Crib, even for short distances.
