When did you starty giving your child a pillow?

My son just turned 1, the Dr okay'd it at 10 months, but I still haven't given him one. He seems to like his head propped up but so far he uses his arm or balls up his blanket. When you gave your child a pillow did you just put it in their crib or did you ease it in somehow?

  • Around 18-22 months... I think it actually contributed to them sleeping better through the night.

  • about 15mos we started w/ a travel sized pillow

    around 3 we replaced w/ a full size

    It took both of my kids a long time to accept the pillow... it was a toy or just in the way til 20mos I think

  • My daughter is 21 months and she just started sleeping w a blanket but no pillow. She didn't want the blanket she'd kick it off until recently. I put a small travel sized pillow in her crib too but she didn't like it or use it. Lol

  • Around 13-14 months when he was walking very well. He usually falls asleep on the pillow and then wakes up at the other end of his crib. He loves his pillow. He's 20mo. now.
