  • I started with my daughter around 1 also. One night I looked at her and she looked uncomfortable. So I thought she needs a pillow some kind of neck support. I used a plain old travel pillow that looks like a minature pillow (kind of hard to find) with its own pillow case. she loves it.

  • all of my kids have had some sort of pillow from birth, whether it be a boppy or regular pillow so I would assume a small pillow wouldn't be too bad....we don't use fluffy pillows in my house, too many problems so all our pillows are flat LOL we just use like 15 at a time LOL

  • my ds has been using one since he was about 5 months old but i put the pillow under the crib sheet so i don't have to worry about him getting it on his head or face

  • I let my son sleep on a pillow when he got his toddler bed when he turned 2

  • My daughter didn't show an interest until she was around 2.

  • As long as the pillow is not stuffy or very high, they can use it from quite early. The pillows with breathing holes in works wonders!!!!
