  • My daughter uses a muslin cloth, it naturally became her comforter and she likes to cuddle it to sleep. Also good because I have lots of them and easy to buy new ones. It helps her fall asleep in her cot.  Stefanie
  • My mum and I were going through a suitcase of clothes from when my brother was little (he’s now 22) and my now 3.5 year old was around one at the time. we had pulled out a baby blanket of his and my son took to it straight away. I hate to think if we ever lost it as they don’t make them like that anymore.  Rianna

  • Security blanket x 2 for my daughter along with 2 x teddies and one of each of my son…  Sheree
  • Yes bought our daughter 3 of the same tigger comforters (incase they get wrecked/lost or thrown up on etc). It didn’t directly help her sleep to begin with, was more of an indicator for her that sleep was coming. But now she grabs it and hugs it to sleep and looks for it during the night, but she only gets it when she’s going to sleep. Also initial reason was because she refused a dummy, bought them when she was about 4months old.  Amaile
  • My dad gave my dd a soft giraffe toy that came with a blanket when she was born. She has slept with it ever since and we now have 3 of them just in case. We take one everywhere we go. She is now 2 and has all 3 in bed with her as we speak.  Taylor

  • My youngest was given a blankie when he was about one that he fell in love with and has slept pretty much all night since, before that he woke a lot. It was quite big so we made it into 2, now he’s 2 & a half I’m thinking it’s time to make it smaller.  Toni

  • My sister (god love her) bought my son a twinkle twinkle little scout by leapfrog (6 months ago they were 20 bucks at bigw but are now discontinued) its a puppy that plays music that had a little blanket the size of a face washer you are “supposed” to tie to the puppy, however scout the puppy got ditched along time ago & now the little blue blanket (people often mistake as a dusting rag) goes everywhere with my soon to be 1yo! He sleeps great with it 2x 4 hour naps during the day & 8-10 hours of a night! Blankie is amazing!  Renee

  • My almost 3 year old has a pink dragon. she picked it up at a garage sale when she was 6 months old and she wont go to bed without it . it went to the hospital today as well as a comforter when we thought she had broken her arm. And my 14 month old has a minnie mouse that is bigger than her she sleeps with wont go to bed unless its there and she can see it. Diana
  • she started with nothing and she was fine, then by accident i kept leaving her glow worm in the cot, the 1st day i left it at mums she was hard to get to sleep but then was fine without it. for the 3 weeks it was in there she used to just roll to her side and touch its face lol, even caught her holding its hand (Shes almost 9 months) so id say, if your going to introduce anything to help bub sleep, get 3 of them incase you loose one!!!  Jade

  • My son got one of those Kmart music and lights bears as a baby shower gift. He didnt like it untill he was about 10mths but from then on he sleeps with it every night and turns it on himself. It lullabys him to sleep and the lights work well too to make room less scary if he wakes in middle of nite. He turns it on and puts himself back to sleep hes now 2.5yrs old. Still has it in his bed but doesnt turn it in very often as he now has one of those turtles that project stars and moon in different colours onto walls and ceiling.  Lisa
