At what age did you give your child a pillow to sleep with?

My daughter is 15 months old and has slept with a blankie since she was born. Sometimes she rolls it up and sleeps on top of it. Recently we went away and had to cosleep, well she ended up using a pillow. I'm wondering if it's ok to put a pillow in her crib, and at what age other moms gave their little ones a pillow to sleep with.

We gave our children pillows pretty early. With our first, we gave it to her when she moved to the "big girl" bed at about 17 months. With our 2nd, she's had one since she was about 6 months old, because she's a snuggler and it helped her to have a pillow to snuggle her body against. I think as long as they can move things away from their face, they should be fine :)
