At what age can children have a pillow?

Children can start using a pillow when they are around 1 to 2 years old. At this age, most children have developed the necessary neck and head control to safely use a pillow. It is important to choose a pillow that is appropriate for their age and size. Look for a children’s pillow that provides proper support and is not too high or firm. A soft and hypoallergenic pillow made specifically for children is a good choice. Remember to regularly check the pillow for any signs of wear and tear, and replace it if needed to ensure your child’s comfort and safety during sleep.

Using a pillow can help children have a more comfortable and restful sleep. However, it is essential to introduce a pillow at the right age to avoid any potential risks. Before the age of 1, it is generally recommended to avoid using a pillow as infants have limited neck control and may not be able to adjust their head position properly. As children grow older and their neck muscles strengthen, they can start using a pillow. When selecting a pillow for your child, opt for one that is specifically designed for children, ensuring it provides adequate support without being too high or firm. Regularly inspect the pillow for any signs of damage and replace it as needed to maintain your child’s comfort and safety during sleep.
