I quite often get asked what is the best way to introduce Sleepytot to your baby or toddler. Here are some hints that you can use to increase the success rate of Sleepytot.
Just like any comforter, baby needs to be old enough and mobile enough to be able to safely manoeuvre Sleepytot away from their face when they want to.
This age can vary with all babies, depending on their development. Strictly speaking SIDS say nothing in the cot until baby is 12 months old and of course every parent can make their own decisions after being informed of all the information available.
This age normally coincides with a stage of separation anxiety where they will start to form a strong attachment to a comforter. This is a key time in your babies life as she begins to understand you can go away and leave her and separation anxiety can set in. Baby comforters have been shown to make this time much easier for your baby and you!
How do I use a Sleepytot?
I have found that toddlers will rarely throw their bunny away with the dummy as they fall in love with them so quickly and love to cuddle them. They will not want to be away from bunny for too long.
Of course babies don't need to use pacifiers to be able to love Sleepytot. We have so many success stories from parents who say their little ones simply love cuddling up to their bunny.
I hope that helps. If you would like any questions answered please feel free to get in touch with us.
