My DD also used to complain stiff neck until I change her pillow. At first we change to those harder type ( more expensive pillow) as advise by the doc but her condition did not improve. We later learn fr the sales aunty selling pillow tat children need to sleep on those v soft n flat pillow . We went to NTUC n buy those cheapo pillow n her stiff neck prob gone :)

My DD is ard 4 + when she start to complain abt stiff neck and at first we tot is her study table too low for her .... So we change her table but her neck prob did not improve n we bring her to doc. Doc advised to change pillow to harder type n we follow. DD start to complain more frequent. A sales lady told us children need to use those super soft n flat pillow. Now DD seldom complain abt her neck ache anymore.

Besides changing her head pillow to the flatter type, you should try to elevate her lower legs with a small pillow or bolster. Her spine and neck will be more comfy. Try this on yourself, you will feel the difference. Lying straight on our back can cause aches too.
