It may seem like a silly question, but at what age should a child start sleeping with a pillow?
    
This is not a silly question at all but a rather good one!

Pillows, as you know, are not recommended for infants since children that small can easily suffocate while using one. Most pediatricians and sleep experts would say not to give a child a pillow until they are at least two years old. Many doctors would even say that children never really need a pillow

We would start off giving a child a small pillow (the size of an airline pillow) once they have moved from a crib to a bed. The pillow should be firm. A feather pillow is probably too soft for kids.
