When Child Can Sleep With Pillow

When Did Your Child Start Sleeping With a Pillow?

Everything from low levels of serotonin to poor air circulation has been linked to SIDS. And since no one has figured out exactly why babies die unexpectedly while sleeping, many parents are wary of using bumpers, blankets, and pillows. Additional reasons like neck strain (and advice from their children's doctors) also keep mothers from propping their tots' heads with a pillow. At what age did you allow your child to sleep with the cushion?

I think around two. I dont know exactly because it was something that she slowly transitioned to out of her own desire. She uses an extremely flat pillow, or her pillow pet, because she is a side and stomach sleeper.

Our daughter used to use a soother at bedtime; when she turned 3 she was allowed to trade her soothers in for a pillow pet. It still took her a few days ot getting used to, but it definitely made her feel like a 'big girl,' and she's never looked back since.
