M-W has 1948.  OED appeals wanted an antedate to 1970.

15 August, 1927 _Stevens Point(WI) Daily Journal, 3/4.  <<An excellent
precaution to prevent the "dowager's hump" at the back of the neck is to
sleep without a pillow, or else use a baby pillow instead of a big one.>>

[How's that for medical advice?]
