    Default Dummy / comforter question

    My 5 month old looooooves his dummy (and so do i generally). But I'm thinking of getting him a comforter to use now as well to help with settling. I saw ones you can get which are like a toy but have a velcro strip on them (like at the paw) you can attach a dummy to so that baby can find the dummy easily at night. Has anyone used these??? Or are glow in the dark dummys plus a normal comforter the way to go for nighttime?? Or are the glow in the darks overrated?? Am thinking the ones with the velcro could be good in the short term but not long term as baby grows and you want to get rid of the dummy. Thoughts??
    TIA

    You could always get a fabric dummy clip and clip the dummy to the comforter.

    I used to tie the dummy to the corner of a muslin. The muslin was her comforter and she would snuggle into it. And then it wouldn't get lost! Simple. Cheap. ..easy to replace! And wash and swap.

    We have used the fabric dummy clip in DD's sleeping bag since she came out of her swaddle. It's how she learned to put it back on herself. She also has a bunny comforter. Works well for us, dummy doesn't get lost

    When DD1 was a bub i got one of those 'air wraps' for the cot and would chuck a half dozen glow in the dark dummies in with her.lol

    Maybe not everyone go to option but worked well for us
