The baby pillow is a pillow specially made for the baby, its main function is to prevent the baby's head from turning, and does not compress the baby's cervical spine. In general, newborns have straight necks and use pillows to compress the baby's cervical spine. Therefore, the requirement for the baby's pillow is to have a pit that fits the shape of the baby's head.

If the baby's head cannot be properly cared for, it will have a greater impact on the baby's head blood circulation, which is not only not conducive to the baby's growth and development, but also affects the physiological functions of the head and neck, which may cause the baby's head development deformity.

In general, the core in a pillow can be made of a variety of materials. For the special group of babies, the choice of pillow core is particularly important. What's good to put in your baby's pillow? Let's take a look.

The texture of the pillow core should be soft, light, breathable, good moisture absorption, and moderate softness and hardness. Generally, materials such as cord leather, buckwheat husk, thin pile, tea and mung bean skin are selected, and foam plastic, acrylic, silk cotton, etc. should not be used as fillers. Choose more buckwheat husk, tea and mung bean skin pillow core in summer, and thin fleece in winter. Most people recommend that the pillow core should be buckwheat husk or tea leaves dried after brewing tea, which is not only suitable for softness and hardness, strong moisture absorption and breathability, but also can be cleaned. Other items such as barnyard seeds will also work.

Baby's pillowcase and pillow core should be washed and dried frequently. Pillows are very important for babies, a good pillow can promote the baby's sleep quality improvement, play an irreplaceable role in the healthy growth of the baby.
