    Default When should a baby have a pillow???

    My daughter is one on the 28th April and sometime i let her have a flat pillow at nap times (never at bedtime, or through the night).

    When can i give or a pillow to sleep with at night time??

    She alway seems to sleep longer with a pillow as she almost always co-sleeps with us.



    Also, she always wakes up between 12am & 3am, and won't go back to sleep in her own cot, and will only go to sleep in bed with us, HELP!! [-o< :sleeping:

    I believe pillows are usually considered okay from about one year, so you should be fine to give her one now.

    Yeah they say 1 yr like fenella said, but I just gave my DD a pillow when she went from cot to bed at 18nths, and I'll do the same for DS as well.

    Mine never had one till they were 2 and went into a big bed. Actually Lachlan who is 2 and is in a big bed still doesn't have one atm. Kameron still uses a "junior" pillow

    Aidyn has a 'mini' pillow... like a little decorative one, its about 25x15cm. We will probably get him a proper junior pillow when he moves into a big bed.

    Charlie didn't have one until he went into his big bed about a month ago, but he always used to use his teddy bear as a pillow! He loves his pillow now, though, but he doesn't always use it.
