Do you think it’s safe?

I know this probably sounds ridiculous, but I’m a very tired, emotional mum right now so just want to make sure! My LO (9 months old) hasn’t been settled at night for weeks (I think 8 month regression plus teething). He hasn’t even made 2 hours tonight and he’s screaming. We’ve finally got him settled in his cot with his monkey (same as the picture). He’s never had any comforters or anything, so I’m just worried about leaving this in his cot.

He should be fine but if it makes you feel better check on him a lot. As long as baby can roll over and move around well, you shouldn’t worry, cause if it’s on his face, he will move it

My pediatrician recommends to start giving the baby a lovey that “isn’t a suffocation danger” starting at 3-4 months. That stuffed animal you showed doesn’t look like a suffocation danger. They give this advice to all parents. Since my doctor is the director of pediatrics at St. David’s I’d trust her advice.

Both my kids were tummy sleepers, and had a small stuffie or sound lovie with them in their crib. As long as they can move their heads freely, I think it is completely fine!

A children’s nurse told me once they can roll AND pull a thin sheet off their face (you can practice during the day do make sure) then you can put them down with a toy/pillow/blanket and/or on their side/back/tummy and it’s safe
