    Default Would you use a comforter?

    I have looked but can't find anything that says don't use a comforter.
    DD is 4mo and I have a cuski thing which is a little blanket type thing with a round head. Is this dangerous to leave in the cot with her?

    My DS &DD both had a cuddle rug with a plush animal on the corner of it got Both from best &less DS called his Blue had a hippo on it DD. calls hers snorky they both had them since newbie and never a prob leaving it in cot with them. Just stick it in your shirt for few hours before giving it to them for first time so it has mummy's scent

    All 3 of our chilren have had a "lovey". I think they are great as they give comfort when you are not/cant be there. We introduced it at around 3-4mths old and found it really helped with settling as time went on. My older kids at 9 and 7 both still have theirs, and sleep with them every night - so choose carefully! Must be something that can be washed frequently and wont fall apart. We also learned quickly it is much easier/safer to own 2 or 3 of the same toy and rotate them...although my DD sleeps with all 3 "Bears" now!

    My DD now 3 loves her Night One. He is a lamb comforter that we gave her from 6 weeks of age. It is completley save and made of a breathable fabric, so if bubs throw it over their face, they can still breath.
    The reason I was told for it was it is something that is a constant everytime they go to sleep, so they can use it in their going to sleep, self settling process. Even if they go to bed in different places, different beds, they have their comforter which makes anywhere feel like home.
    Good idea to have two or three the same so you can swap them out and wash them.

    DS has a blankie that he can't be without. It is a small square of minky fabric with ribbon tags around the edges. We gave it to him at 4 months and he has slept with it ever since. It goes everywhere with us.

    Default Would you use a comforter?

    I bought my niece a giant stuffed rabbit (about the same size as her at 11 months) for her first Easter which was a bit of a mistake as it became her "comforter" lol. She got so attached and left it at my mums a few times and would be distraught so the next Easter, I bought her another one to leave at nanny's, but instead she needs both giant bunnies as well as this massive Winnie the Pooh blanket to sleep hahaha. So start small as its a challenge when she's tired to carry her, both "bunnies", "blankie", "bot bot" and her dummy to bed! Haha

    Btw - I'm glad I bought my niece all the dumb impractical toys (and squeaking shoes) so I now know what not to buy my daughter! Though my sister has promised that the most annoying stuff will be lovingly passed down to me lol!

    I'm in two minds as I bought DD an organic cotton comforter which said from birth but there is a great big tag on it saying do not leave in the crib due to hazard?!

    I got mine from the Save Our Sleep company, on line and it is perfectly save from day one. Have a look at their website.

    I cut a square from light weight breathable muslin cloth. You can get breathable 'safe' teddy head comforters from chemists.
