Introducing My Toddler To A Sleepytot Baby Comforter |review

Finding a comforter for your baby is like gold dust, if you know that there’s always that one special thing which will calm your little one, especially if you’re not around, is just the best. When Tween and Teen were babies they had dummies (or pacifiers if you’re reading this on the other side of the pond) to settle them which was great but meant they often went to bed with a few strategically placed around their cots, more often than not though they ended up down the side or under the blankets and I’d find myself rummaging around trying to find them, so the idea of a comforter which you could use to hold one in place, making them easy to locate, sounds like the perfect solution.

And that’s exactly what a Sleepytot baby comforter does. This clever invention from a fellow Devonian,  comes with a bundle of features, one of which are the velcro paws to safely hold dummies/soothers/pacifiers what ever you call them, in place. Genius!

Unfortunately I can’t demonstrate this for you as Toddler doesn’t use dummies but we thought it’d be nice to see if it’s other features appealed to him. For me, it’s the idea of being able to attach the Sleepytot onto buggy straps, I’ve seen the panic in my sister’s face when she realised her daughter had lost the only comforter they had. (Note to self, if this is the ‘one’ for toddler, buy a spare!) I’ve also seen SOS’s on social media when other friends have lost their children’s comforter. So limiting any distress calls is perfect.

I waited for the right moment to introduce our Sleepytot to the toddler, choosing a rare moment of calm, as he woke from an afternoon nap. Most things tend to be subject his engrossing trajectory schema (he lobs things, anything; food, remote controls, mobile phones, you name it, he chucks it.) So rather than handing it over for an impromptu game of catch, I planned my moment perfectly.

I was shocked and relieved to see him, cuddle it in and chew on its ear, while contemplating his next round of mayhem and destruction. He’s teething and this seemed to be soothing (yay!) him somewhat with the soft pliable body, just the right shape for a prod and a squeeze.

I have high hopes for this little bunny, if I can task it to comfort my boy in the few hours I have to pop out to work, then I’ll be one happy mummy. It’s still early days but if all goes to plan, I’ll pop back with a progress report.

To be continued…….

    This is such a cute bunny. I have a friend who has just had twins, I wonder if they come in more than one colour.

    The buggy straps on it are such a good idea. There’s nothing worse than losing your baby’s favourite toy!

      It’s so lovely and doubles as a dummy holder. I looked everywhere for a similar style when my son was little but only found one which I would have to ship from America.

    Ah, comforters! What would we do without them? Tin Box Tot has a bunny that she has to take with her to bed and asks for when she’s feeling tired. The poor thing’s ears have been twiddled and chewed to destruction. Tin Box Baby on the other hand is very much a dummy girl. She’s usually so happy, but if she can’t find her ‘dums’ in the night we know about it! Something like this, that we could attach a dummy to, could be really handy x #TriedTested

    What a lovely comforter. I love that it can be fasted securely. All three of my children have special cuddlies but they live in their bedrooms and are rarely allowed to leave the house for fear of loss!
    Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x
