Why your baby could benefit from a comforter

Are you considering getting a comforter for your baby? Then you’re not alone. Baby comforters have been used for generations, with many parents using them to soothe their babies and improve their sleep. Read on to find out more about the benefits they can bring.

Baby comforters help babies sleep better

A comforter signals to your baby that it’s time to go to sleep. If your baby is attached to a comforter, they’re more likely to be able to soothe themselves to sleep independently. They can grab their comforter when they wake up in the night, helping them regain the sense of safety and security they need to drift back to sleep. A comforter can even help your baby to ditch the dummy earlier, making the transition much easier.

Baby comforters reduce stress

Another benefit of introducing a comforter to your baby is that it can help them cope with stress
better. For example, when they face a change in their routine, such as starting nursery, getting their immunisations, or going on a long car journey, they can use their comforter to help them relax.
Comforters can help your child feel calm, safe, and happy.

When to introduce a comforter

Most experts recommend introducing a comforter to your baby when they reach seven months old. You may want to sleep with it overnight before giving it to them, as this will ensure that it smells of you. If you’re breastfeeding, you could even dab a small amount of milk onto it. Don’t worry too much about your baby’s dependence on a comforter. Most children naturally become less dependent on them as they get older.

There are many personalised baby comforters on the market. However, it’s important to choose
carefully. We recommend choosing one that’s washable as it’s likely to become dirty over time. It’s also best to avoid those with bean fillings or that have long fur or strings that your baby could
accidentally ingest.
