  • My little ones started to use pillows around the age of 1. Started using them of a day during there day sleep. And wanted one of a night. Most of the time they end up between there legs. Now nearly 5, the pillow still ends up between his legs. Depends on your child and if they request a pillow. I would use a flat pillow while they are still young

  • there are soft, low pillows for tots – seek some recommendation from a good bed shop

  • you don’t need to give them one at all, I think it’s more of a comfort thing. But as soon as they have established neck muscles I think it’s fine to give them one.

  • My daughter only got a pillow when she moved into a big girl bed.

  • We gave our children a special pillow for toddlers when they transitioned to a big bed. It was only an inch or so thick.

  • When they moved into a single bed, 2 years old. I also bought a “my first pillow”, I don’t remember what brand but it isn’t as big and it’ll be a gentle transition on their necks,

  • When they moved into a bed. All 3 were over 2 years.

  • I have my son one at 20 months. He loves it!

  • My daughter is 19 months and loves her pillow.

  • when did you decide to?

  • Hope you found the answer you were looking for.

  • When did you decide to give one to yours?

  • We gave our daughter a pillow when she went into her “Big Bed” at age 2

  • Mine got them as soon as they were out of their cot. You can get kids one too.

  • If you are looking for a pillow, Tontine make a ‘my first pillow’
