I'm so confused. I was reading the pamphlet our pediatrician sent home for my son's 6 month visit and it says this is a good time to introduce a "comfort item" such as a small blanket or stuffed animal. I agree that this could, in theory, help a lot when my son wakes up in the night (he is at that stage where he isn't necessarily hungry and is learning to put himself back to sleep). He also LOVES rubbing soft objects against his face.....so I could see how this could help soothe him. However, how do you determine what is safe? I know he's old enough to push a blanket or stuffed animal away from his face when he is awake, but isn't the concern that they could cover their face while sleeping and not get enough oxygen? What do you do with your child?Answer Question
