DD's cot is very scarce, ie in summer there is only her, in winter, her in a sleepingbag.

Past two nights she has woken up screaming and only settled in our bed on my pillow / using my hand as a pillow.

Tonight she was in her cot for about 20 mins before screaming. She's now asleep on the sofa, lying on a pillow. So maybe she wants a pillow??

What age can they have a pillow?

From 12 months apparently.

thank you for the quick reply

Do they have to be special ones?

We bought ours in John Lewis-is very"squishy"-but didn't get it till she was nearly 2 and felt a bit guilty

ds at 18 months doesn;t have one but he rotates in his cot so I'm not sure there's much point until he's got big enough to stop doing that.

One year old. DS2 still pushes his pillow aside and sleeps flat on the mattress, and he's 3.

I've given a pillow to ds1(2 years old) tonight for the first time,but my mum seems to think he should have a special one,rather than the flat(ish) one off our spare bed.

from a year here. In scandinavia they recommend use of goi-goi pillows from birth....
