I would say wait until she is 3. Just to be safe.

I have two little boys ages 3 and 5 years. my mom made a little pillow for my 5 year old when he was born. i didn't let him start sleeping with it until after his first birthday, because kids sleep so hard sometimes and they wouldn't recognize like we do when we are suffocating, they're not as strong and especially while they're sleeping. I would wait until 3 years old. Don't let the pillow be to stuffy either. Let it be kind of firm and small sized.

She should be able to have a pillow now. She is over the Sids risk,

my son had really bad acid reflux so he had to sleep on an incline...so he had a pillow in his crib when he was about 3 months. My daughter is 4 months now and doesnt have one. But my son is 2 and he has slept with a pillow for a long time...even after the reflux was gone and taken care of.

Yes you can use a pillow but they are special pillows made from material which can allow breathing. If you use a cotton pillow then use a thin pillow.
