My 2.5 yo is pretty obsessed with my hair. It's like her comfort blanket and she has to hold it when she's falling asleep or when resettling during the night if she wakes. If I'm carrying her during the day she'll often grab a handful. She has never attached herself to any other comforters, just my hair as she used to play with it when breastfeeding.
I'd like to buy her a doll with hair that feels real, so I can coax her to cuddle that instead of me. It's all becoming a bit much for me, she's just so clingy.
Anyone bought a doll with realistic hair? Where from?
Or any other suggestions please?

I was just thinking, have you considered buying some real human hair extensions and clipping them to the hair of a doll?
Or you could sew hair extensions onto the edge of a comfort blanket or something?
Just trying to think outside the square a bit, as her attachment is to hair, not a particular doll or teddy... But I think this one will be tough, as it's not just your hair, but being close to you, your special smell, your warmth as well that would be giving her comfort.

Yes I had thought about that, just wasn't sure if it would look really weird! LOL. But could give it a try, might be cheaper!
She's always been a mummy's girl, it's just got more extreme lately since her little sister was born. I'm trying to give her as many cuddles as possible and have allowed her to sleep with me if she comes into my bed during the night, hoping it'll run its course. Just would like to try giving her a comfort item like this to maybe it'll help DH be able to put her to bed. I've been unable to implement a bedtime routine for my four month old so far as we're so caught up with the other kids. But that's a different thread!
