    Default When did you give your kids a pillow?

    My DD is 13 months old and constantly wakes herself up as she pushes up in her cot and bashes her head on the side. I was just wondering at what age you have your child a pillow. I think it would stop her pushing herself up but she seems too little still as she is a small 13MO.

    When i noticed he was bunching up his blanket to sleep on it- around 20 months I think? But i think it's one of those 'every kid is different' things.

    Subbing??

    Yeh it is a every kid is different thing! I'm thinking it might stop her waking up during the night as well as she won't go to sleep without a bottle and as she moves around alot in her sleep it might stop her from moving around so much! Hmm mayb il have to trial it!

    My DD is 2 yrs 8mos and I finally relented and got her a pillow about 3 weeks ago. I don't think that she is hitting her head on the end of the cot as much.

    DD is 2 and a bit & still in her cot but she always sleept better in our bed & would comment 'aww, nice pillow! Nice banket!'

    So I made her cot up with a sheet, blanket and flat pillow & she loves it.

    Comments on 'nice pillow/Blanket' everytime I put her down.

    DD got a pillow at 12 months.

    She was waking up all upside down and out of the covers in her cot. The pillow has helped x100000 as now she knows that's where her head should be iykwim?

    Well my dd is 13 months and I just gave her a pillow. She is also teeny tiny. I'm not sure what the risk is with pillows exactly but I thought they were only unsafe under 12 months. Dd loves pillows and seems to sleep slightly longer with one. I have tested dd before to make sure she would stir and move if her face gets covered while asleep. She does.

    17 months when she had a bad cold - I figured she'd sleep better with her head elevated. She starts the night using it then ends up all over the cot though.

    Last month- 19 months, we co sleep and he kept trying to steal my pillow or push me off! So we have this big king size bed with a beautiful matching sheet/pillow/doona cover set with a buzz light year pillow in the middle!
