  • both on 2nd birthday. worked out well, I think. We also started w/ the travel sized pillow til it seemed appropriate to upgrade.

  • doctors recommend to wait til atleast 18 months. they dont really have "necks" til then, and pillows can close off their trachias and cause suffocation if their heads are propped to high.

  • My oldest was 2 only because we never thought to give her one before that. The middle 3 were all 1. My youngest is 5 months and has been sleeping on a pillow since he was a couple weeks old. When he started rolling we had to take it away but he's gotten good enough that if he rolls off the pillow he moves away from it so he's not just pressing his face into the pillow. He only uses them when he's on the living room floor. His bed isn't big enough for a pillow.

  • Birth, with all three. We take one to the hospital for them to have from day one so they sleep in a semi upright position. My older kids still sleep that way...
