In brief: After he's a baby
I recommend going without for as long as possible.
Your baby doesn't need a blanket. It has been recommended to not use a blanket until 12 months of age because at 12 months the risk of sids is greatly diminished. I recommend waiting until closer to 2 years old if you want to introduce a blanket into the bed.

In brief: Why?
I agree with dr wolfson, but i ask why does a baby ever need a blanket.
If the room temperature is reasonable, the pajamas are warm, i see no need for a blanket. There are safer things to use for comfort.
