its not about the age really its how you feel. i gave my daughter a pillow when i felt comfortable enought that if she would roll over if she couldnt breathe. as long as your son can roll over and realize that hes having trouble breathing in a certian position that its fine.

We gave our daughter a pillow at 10 months, as she was having a hard time breathing when she was sick and it helped her drain the fluid from her nose. She climbed out of her crib 2 months later and started using one regularly in her toddler bed. She's almost 3 and the pillow still has the protective wrap on it under a pillow case as she still takes a bottle of water to bed. My oldest slept with me until she was in preschool and she also uses one pillow now (9yrs old).

i gave my son a pillow at 2 just due to the fact it was to fluffy. he seemed to have a problem with that. so i bought a thin flat pillow.

Our son is almost three and has only just decided he wanted a pillow - it's actually just a soft blanket folded over.

We started my son with one of those tiny travel size pillows, they are small and thin so it's barely even a pillow! Most the time when he sleeps with pillows now he moves far down the bed and doesn't have one anyways, I think he was one when we started pillows?

I started my kids on a very thin pillow when they were about that age. They are 7, 5 and 4 now they like thick pillows now.

i gave my daughter a pillow around age 14 mos...she never uses it. lol. it's now in my living room. i suggest a not too big and not too fluffy pillow so as they toss and turn they don't accidently end up with it over their face.
