i know most drs will say like no pillow till 2 years i believe. but my daughter has always used blankets and we gave her a pillow at 9 1/2 months (because she was ready and strong enough). if your baby is strong then i would try a flatter pillow to start with. but if your worried maybe get your baby a special stuffed toy to sleep with (my daughter sleeps with a piggy). good luck!

We have put blankets on my son since he was home from the hospital. He has always slept with one and he just turned 1.

My son has had a favorite blankie that he sleeps with and has since he was just under a year old. The pillow depends on how your little one sleeps, as far as muscle control and stuff by this age they should be able to handle a pillow. My son never really took to pillows, and usually pushes them away when he's sleeping. I would try it at naptime and see if she likes it at all or needs it.
L.S. answers from Las Vegas on October 30, 2008
I just gave my son a pillow about 1 month ago and he is 21 months old-he has always had a blanket in the crib-I usually layed him on it, but I just started usuing it to cover him. As long as they can move good and take the blanket on and off it will be fine to use it.L.:)

Get a little pillow, perhaps travel size. I think Babies R Us sells little pillows. A blankie is no problem. she should have enough neck muscles to prevent any problems
