  • Over a year. Like 18 months or so. But they are really flat pillows, so they are not much higer than their mattresses.

  • My daughter is 10 months old and sleeps with a pillow and blanket. She grabs them before laying down. My son was around the same age. He is now 6 and has like 50 pillows. He just wants every pillow I make him in his bed and well he keeps wanting more pillows with different fabrics LOL.

  • My kids were old enough to hold up their head and roll over...8 or 9 months tops. But...they also co-slept. :)

  • She was about four when she asked for a pillow. I would have preferred to not give her one; I don't think that they are particularly healthy for the spine.

  • My oldest was 2 just because I never thought to give her one before that. My younger 3 kids all got pillows around the time they turned 1.
