With my 3, it was more a comfort for me than them and they just grew accustomed to it. But eventually what knocked it was constantly losing them and hunting them down. With DD(11), she had 3 nd she would bite holes in them and then cry. Once the 3rd one was holey and lost, I didn't buy another. She cried for it for a week. It was hard, but at 14mos, no more "ha-hum". With DD(6), she had one that lasted her til she was 10 mos. She lost it, I found it nd hid it. She never cried for it, so there it went. With DS(5), he had 4. We went to visit my mom he lost 1 there. We went to visit my inlaws, he lost 2 there. We had one left and at the age of 1, same thing as the last girl. But he had a hard time coping, so I'd just try and keep him busy during the day and before you know it he was exhausted and didn't mind that "pappy" wasn't there!
