Has anyone introduced a pillow for their baby to sleep on?

my son sleeps with a pillow, no blankets though because he has a tendancy to play peek a boo with them or cover his face with them and roll around and they wrap around his head, So im not sure when i will ever feel comfortable w blankets. But he loves his pillow he cuddles it and falls asleep much faster if its in there because he just falls onto it and is so comfy he goes to bed. He does move around alot in the night so I usually take it out at some point. but also if he wakes up ill give him a bottle and he likes to lie with it so we need the pillow.

my son has always had a pillow since not long after birth because he had reflux/colic and we found he slept alot better propped up ! he is used to his pillow now and we have no issues with it, he sleeps with his comforter teddy and has a few blakets in his bed because he likes to have things around him... security thing i guess ?

I have, but mine's a squirmer, and she's never on the pillow in the morning. In fact, she's never on the pillow five minutes after I put her down. And, I just had to take the pillow away, because she's learned to stand up in her crib, and the pillow gives her enough height to be able to look over and possibly topple out when she stands on it. So, no pillows til she learns to sit still at night.

I started my daughter out with a very flat pillow in the living room floor to drink her bottles and just to see how she would do with one. After that i made sure to keep a very flat and thin pillow in her bed with her but i also made sure to get a longer pillow so it could be tucked under the bumper pad so she couldnt pull it up as easy. She is 10 months now and has been sleeping with her pillow since she was 6 or 7 months old

my daughter likes to be put to sleep in our bed, with her head on the pillow. when put in her in her bed, she would wake up and want back in ours. after trying a few different things, I gave her a pillow. now she doesn't wake and sleeps fine!
