I'm pretty sure its at about a year old. My lo is 11 months and I am going to be getting her one soon (hopefully in the sales).

Hi. One all the sets with duvets etc I have seen it says not suitable till 12 months. We have a set ready to go from Ikea. They have the loveliest wee sets!

hi, My ds suffered bad with colic and reflux so he had a safety pillow wedge from about 6weeks and then we gave him a proper pillow at about 11months (advised age is from 12months. He also had a cot duvet from about a year and then gave him a proper single duvet when we changed him to bed at 20months

Abby still doesn't have a pillow and she's 2. I don't see any reason to introduce one. However in this weather she loves her duvet.

Yep it's 12 months for a pillow and duvet. My son started using a duvet at around 18 months, when he outgrew his 6-18 month sleeping bags. I didn't give a pillow straight away, like Blondefriend I didn't really see the point, and I'd heard (can't remember where so no idea how true it is) that you should avoid them until they ask for one really, it;s better to be lying flat. A couple of months after starting with the duvet though, ds had a cold and I thought elevating his head might help him a bit at night, so he's had a pillow since then.
If you really did want to introduce a pillow before 12 months, only put it under the fitted sheet, so baby can't get underneath it.

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
