    Default Would you use a comforter?

    I have for one each of my 3 children. They have had them since birth and are are definitely comforted by them. I think at about 5-6 months was when I really noticed they wanted their comforters and it soothed them if they were upset etc. downfall is obviously they can get too attached and if u loose one when you're out it's hell to pay. My kids have 4 each - 2 in rotation as they get feral and 2 stored away in case of an emergency. I plan to always keep one never opened and give it to them when they're older for their child one day.

    Default Re: Would you use a comforter?

    Ds uses a big puppy teddy. About the size of him. When he goes to bed he turns his head into the puppy then he is off. When we took it out of the cot to see how he went his sleep went downhill! So i love the idea.. I didn't when he easy very small newborn then the child health nurse and Ngala in Perth told me to give him a comfort item to sleep with so must be ok..

    Default Re: Would you use a comforter?

    I prefer not to until like 6 months. I've used a few things for her but so far the things she's liked the most are a squishy teething ring to chew and a muslin wrap tied in knots.

    Default Re: Would you use a comforter?

    I cut up about 10 muslin blankets into 1/4's so they are small squares and hemmed the edges. DS2 doesn't mind which one he has as long as he has one of them at all times and now at 28 months even though he has lost see he still has about 30 of them. Heaps better than having one single blanket/teddy

    No, it's a SIDS risk. I just double checked the SIDS and kids website: "Quilts, doonas, duvets, pillows, soft toys and cot bumpers in the cot are not recommended"

    No. My DS rolls around so much in the cot, I wouldn't want anything in his way.
