When to introduce a pillow

(3 Posts)

Hi all,
A friend of mine asked about whether to start using a pillow for her 1yo and that got me thinking. My DS (he's just turned 1) seems to settle better for naps if he has something soft under his head and I was wondering if that would help him to settle easier in his cot at night. He still wakes for feeding and often falls asleep on me, and sometimes I think the transition from Mum's comfy shoulder to a less comfy cot makes him wake up again.
Thanks in advance.

The guidance is not before 1.
I've heard people say not til they ask for it.

Both mine got a pillow when they escaped the cot and got a duvet and bed (ie 24 months and 18 months).

When you say something soft under his head, what about putting an under blanket on the bed to make things softer?
