    We tried comforters with both my older girls from babies but neither took to any. It wasn't till they were toddlers and developed preferences for favourite toys that it happened

    At 8 months when DD transitioned out of her swaddle. We had to 'teach' her to use it, every time we went in to settle her we would put it in her hand. It's one of those blankie with a bunny head things. She took to it really quickly and is still obsessed with it at 2.5. We have 2 so I can wash them because they can get really revolting!

    We gave DD her monkey when she was 4 months and we were moving her out of a swaddle. She took to it very quickly and slept with it until she started walking, at which point it came out of the cot and came with her everywhere lol my inlaws then turned up a few months ago with a rabbit that DD talked to in her convos with them on Skype. Bunny also comes with us everywhere now.

    Default Baby comforter

    Both ours got theirs within months, my tip is, sleep with it in your shirt for a couple of nights to get your smell in it to help acceptance, both ours love theirs, they have 2 each aswell, just to make sure they can find at least 1 in the night to snuggle into!

    We are strict with ours, they only stay in the cot, unless they are sick or going to be in an anxious situation we also have several of each so we can wash them easily... They can get pretty gross!!

    Genuine question as I've been given one as a gift. Isn't is dangerous or a SIDS risk to have a big cloth like object so close to a baby while they sleep? Especially in a bassinet that's so small?
    I had a security blanket as a kid but i got attached to something organically. It seems these blankets with Teddy heads are a bit of a cute fashion trend no?
