Re: Can DD sleep w/ a normal pillow?

I had a thread asking this question a few weeks ago..you can look it up if you wish. DD was 15 months old when I gave her a pillow just bc it looked comfy. I'd say your definitely ok at 19 months.

Re: Can DD sleep w/ a normal pillow?

I'll be the odd one and say my DD didn't get a travel pillow till after 2 (Christmas present @25m). I'm not against it sooner, she was just still in the crib and I didn't want to give her something to stand on and she didn't seem to care. She didn't use it. She got a full sized pillow with her toddler bed @27m.

We didn't give DD a pillow until about 27 months. Her pediatrician said not until 2, and DD didn't seem to need it, so we didn't. It took her several months before she actually started sleeping ON it instead of under it or something else though
When DD was that little and had issues sleeping we actually would have her sleep either in the swing or in the infant carseat. It kept her in one place and properly elevated.

Ha, I know! DD's trying to hitch her leg up over the rail as it is! (she hasn't figured to use the pillow as a stepping stool yet, though...)

We had her sleep in the rocker/bouncer thing, too! I know most say not to, but she always transitioned back to sleeping in the moses basket fine when she was over being sick. She's waaay too big for it now, so we've got to get creative with elevating her head at night

We gave my DS a pillow around a year old, it's not a big fluffy one; but he seems to sleep better with it.
