1. Buy more than one!

You never know when your baby's favourite toy may be lost, or just need washing!

Choose a comforter which is simple and consistent, the less fussy the better. Try to avoid manufacturers who change their range frequently as it will make it harder to replace if you lose it.

2. Keep it simple.

This big world and baby’s immediate surroundings are all so new. There is so much to take in. Babies love simplicity, consistency and routine. A round shape like a ball is the first shape a baby familiarises with, so the shape of the head is perfect for growing little fingers to discover and hold.

Try to avoid anything bulky or furry, with loose fibers, removable parts or lots of fussy adornments, choose one made of natural, hydroscopic material such as soft cotton toweling as this is the best material for retaining your scents.


A baby needs simplicity and consistency and most importantly safety, so do Mums and Dads. For the first few months make sure this is the only toy in your baby's cot at bedtime. Otherwise he/she may adopt something else which may be impractical or difficult to replace!

3. Sleep with it first.

Before introducing your baby to his or her new comforter, sleep with it in your bed or carry it around in your clothes to absorb all those comforting mummy/daddy smells. When you place it in the cot it will help to soothe and calm your baby, feeling secure in the knowledge you are always close by...

4. More than one child?

Choose a different colour, or, even better, a different style of baby comforter for your second baby so that there will be no confusion.

5. Keep the details

Keep a note of where you bought thye comforter or take the details/website address off the packaging. At least then if you need to buy another identical comforter you can track a retailer down! Otherwise buy at least two. I can assure you it will be a sound investment.

6. Do we really need one?

If this is your first baby and you don't think you will need dummies or any help - don’t believe it! If you don’t introduce a comforter of your choosing, then most babies will definitely adopt something from their surroundings, which may not be practical,such as a sleeve of their clothing or even the dreaded thumb.
