This pillow is perfect for my 12-month-old as she is just now using a pillow in her crib. It is very soft and fluffy, but neither too thick nor firm for little heads and necks. It is certainly warm as the fabric has a high pile to it. I am giving it only 4 stars because it might become too hot for comfortable sleep in the warmer months. For now, I love that she has a lovely pillow to sleep on/snuggle with. Pros: - Size and density are perfect for the littlest users. I also love that there is a coordinating blanky. Cons: - This pillow might be too fluffy for the warmer months. Perhaps Little Giraffe's Satin Nap Pillow might be a better choice for the spring and summer.
