Important facts, how to choose the appropriate comforter for babies and toddlers:
Experts advise that the safest way for a baby to sleep is with nothing in the cot – just baby and a sleeping bag – for the first year. This is because a soft toy, lovey, blankie or baby comforter can present a suffocation risk. During the first year, babies develop at very different stages so while one child may be able to sit up, crawl and handle a comforter with confidence at 8 months, another may only just be learning how to roll over.
This is why it’s essential parents use their judgement when giving a baby under one a soft toy to sleep with. Infants don’t have the strength or co-ordination to remove anything that may fall over their face. However, baby comforters, blankies, or loveys, can play an essential role in helping a baby learn how to sleep through the night. And the earlier they’re introduced, the sooner they can help give your baby that all important comfort and reassurance at bedtime.
