as per title just wondering what sort of age people gave their child a pillow for the first time? my son is 13 months and we are considering introducing one but have read some articles that say 2 years plus although others say 12 months?

thanks in advance

My little ones have always spent time in bed with me. I figure they're used to pillows in my bed so they should be ok... However, I've always introduced a pillow when they move out of the cot and into a big bed of their own. I'm way over-protective though!

Usually about twelve months, but its normally a cot pillow rather than a full size one. :)

Generally I think the guidance is to not use pillows or duvets until they are over a year as they can't regulate their own body temperature. My 6 year only had a pillow when he went into a bed at about 2, same with my 3 year old. I expect I will do the same with my 12 month old, however it is a personal thing i guess.
if you want to elevate their head (to aid congestion) try putting a pillow underneath the mattress to create a gentle slope.
As with a lot of parenting you have to follow your childs lead and use your common sense, I'm sure you will know whats best

Not until they went into a bed at about 2 for me :thumbsup:

They used to say ''never give a child a pillow until they ask for one''

Our son had a cot pillow at 17 months and loves it. He used to be up and down the cot but now stays put on the pillow.
