  • My son is almost 2 and he has one of those little travel pillows in his bed. He loves it and they aren't too big. They are just right for him.

  • I would let him use the pillow during bedtime stories and prayers and such but not to actually sleep on it.

  • Wow, my oldest has had a pillow since he was like 9 months old and he is nearly 3.5 years old. At first I got him a throw pillow from Wal-Mart to sleep on. It was $5 and he loved it. Well it wore out and he had a real pillow but he still wanted a throw pillow so we went and got him another one.

  • People don't ever NEED pillows. I've been doing a lot of reading lately that pillows actually aren't at all good for your spine. But we're all used to using them, they're kinda standard. My kids didn't have pillows until they moved into a bed, around 2-3, and even then I gave them my old flattened out pillows that weren't so full.

  • Mine were in beds at 15 months, so they had pillows much younger than 2.

  • No pillows in cribs. When he is in a bed then he can have the pillow. The problem is in a crib the pillow has no place to go and the kid can get trapped and smother. Mine were about 2 when we moved them to beds and they had small, sort of flat ones then.

  • I didn't give mine one until he was out of his crib and into a bed.
