I am wondering if mums could share their experiences – at what age did you let your baby sleep during the night with a comforterĀ i.e teddy bear or blankie.

  • As long as they’re old enough to lift themselves up to get themselves out of trouble its fine.

  • my son is 24 – he had so many toys in his cot, padded buffers, slept on his tummy from birth – and guess what… he lived LOL.. I know you guys are all super careful now and I respect that, but you are the Mum and know your bubba. You can make this decision and it will be the right one x

  • I did from around 6 months with mine.

  • I was wondering this same question! Thanks for asking it, I’m following the responses

  • meant two months lol.

  • our son fell in love with a cuddly dog at around 2 weeks and still wont sleep without it. reckon he wouldn’t sleep if he lost it.

  • 12 months

  • its was 12 months for me

  • About 12 months I think for my kids. It was only a teddy for one of them and the other loved the little wraps that I used to wrap him up in to sleep when he was younger.

  • Pretty much from 2mths…once they showed and attachment to something.

  • Mine day 1 my 1st had a woollen cot blanket & he loved anything wool, 2nd had a teddy bear it’s fur on top would tickle her face so she would suck on its foot, my 3rd has his cot blanket & sucks on the corner they all ended using them only when they sleep & they stop using it just after they started school. I never thought about suffocation as it was there bedding they was using

  • Hi there,

    we let our son sleep with a comforter from three months – initially it was a t-shirt of either mine or my partner’s so he would think we were still with him… It wasn’t until he was a bit older that he got anything soft like a toy to sleep with he is almost three now and he has attached himself to an old teddy bear we found at an auction house – I washed Ted and it was love at first sight he takes Ted with him shopping (sometimes) and sleeps with him every night.

  • we never had to use one but I’m going to hedge a guess at when they can sit up unassisted.

  • Mine never needed to use one.

  • did you end up using one?
