This is when your toddler can sleep with a blanket and pillow
Boy Sleeping With Blanket

Think back to your baby shower, where you were gifted with beautiful outfits, toys for the baby, and more. But one special gift that as parents we tend to save and even pass through different generations is baby blankets. There are so many lovely blankets trimmed with different fabrics, and you'll want your little one to be able to sleep with one, along with a cute little pillow that tops off the whole bedding set. You may be asking yourself, "When can babies sleep with a blanket?" And as they get older, "When can a toddler sleep with blanket and pillow?" We'll break it down for you.

Blankets in the crib
As parents, we may look at the baby monitor and think that our babies are cold or could benefit from having something comforting, like a blanket, inside the crib. However, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics - (AAP), your baby's crib should be free of anything soft and any other type of soft objects, such as stuffed animals. All of these objects can pose a suffocation risk to a child when they are placed into a crib. They can pose a strangulation risk as well as an increase in the risk of SIDS, as they can get trapped by these objects and pose a risk of suffocation. But as they get older and turn into toddlers, they can safely have some of these items.
Pillows in the crib
While there is no hard and fast rule as to when your baby can use a pillow, the subject is up for debate. Many experts think that a pillow can be used after your child turns 12 months old, while others say that it should not be until around 18 months or beyond. According to the AAP, there is not a specific age to introduce a pillow to your toddler. If your child is 12 months and older, it is probably safe to introduce a pillow in their crib. However, it cannot just be any pillow. When you are shopping for a pillow for your toddler's crib, you will want to find one that is very firm, rather than soft, as soft things can still produce a risk of suffocation.
