sleep with a comfort toy?
So far my DD has slept without toys because i thought they may be a 'play cue' and didn't want any distractions to sleep but i've been considering possibly introducing one lately. Sleeping through the night has never been an issue, the problem arises when I put DD down to sleep in the evening the crying begins as soon as I leave the room, I literally have to sit in the room until she's asleep, she keeps checking to make sure I'm still there. I thought maybe if she had a toy in her cot she would be more comfortable with mummy not being there? Is that the idea, does it work for you? Would you recommend introducing one?
