Washable. The cover and inside the envelope are machine washable.
First, pillows are not recommended for children under two years of age for two reasons: children at this age do not need them and to avoid the risk of suffocation. When integrating the pillow for children, it must be small and very thin (approximately 2 inches) in order to promote the proper development of the spine. The best time to incorporate the pillow is when transferring children from their crib to a single bed. Children’s pillows should be hypoallergenic and anti-mite.
If for medical reasons (regurgitation, congestion, etc.) you need to elevate the head of your child under two years old, you could slide the pillow under the flat sheet so that the pillow is not not free in your child’s bed.
