Pillow Question?!?

I am wondering at what age you give your child a pillow to sleep with?!? My other boys all slept with me so they slept on pillows early on. My 14 month old will not sleep if he's in my bed so he sleeps alone in his crib. I have no idea when I should offer him a pillow. Should I wait until he's in a regular bed, or is there a certain age? Right now he wads one of his blankets up and kind of sleeps on it- does that mean he's ready for a pillow?!? Thanks for your help!

Re: Pillow Question?!?

If they're in a crib, I'd probably wait til they are old enough to be ain a toddler bed before giving a pillow. I'm just too paranoid I think.

My son got a toddler pillow (in our bed) when he was maybe 16-17 months old I guess. Til then, he just slept with his head on the mattress.

K started using a pillow after he turned a year. Not sure exactly how long after, but I do know if was at least a year. He uses a Grandpa pillow (travel size). I noticed that he was putting his blanket under his head, so I decided to give him the pillow.

Re: Pillow Question?!?

My 24 m.o. is still in the crib and has no pillow yet. He puts his doggie or his blanket under him when he first gets into bed, but they're long gone by morning. I wouldn't want yet another item in the crib with him, so I figure, why bother?

Re: Pillow Question?!?

I don't have an answer- my DD is only 9 1/2 months old- but what a good question! I never would have thought to ask it.

Re: Pillow Question?!?

when DD moved to twin bed at 18months i made her a small pillow. Than a few months later it was just too small so i gave her my old temperpedic pillow that was too old to work for an adult anymore...It is on the flatter side and keeps it shape and not fluffy so i'm not worried about her face sinking into it or it being too high and hurting her little neck...

(i got myself a cool water pillow at my chiropractor..heavy, but soo cool and comfy)
