  • Bmat - op here, that would be since birth, both my hubby and I have bad allergies and my son has had issues with sinuses since almost day 1, he's only 10 months old though, I'm concerned that's too little for a pillow in his crib

  • I started my son on a pillow a few weeks before he turned 1. The reason I did it was because he fell asleep on mine one day and he just looked SO peaceful on it lol So I got a smaller one for kids and he has done well with it so far
