She never would take a dummy and I was looking for something that could sooth her apart from cuddles from mum. Fortunately, after weeks of trying the security blanket I noticed she seemed to have taken to a soft toy bunny I bought her for Easter at the checkout of Best and Less. A random purchase, all because it was so cute and soft I couldn't resist!
A few months later and she adores her 'Bunny Bunny'. Whenever she is in the house I can ask her to go give Bunny Bunny a cuddle and off she toddles to find him. Its adorable really. The first thing she does when she wakes up in the morning or drifts off to sleep is to cuddle her Bunny Bunny.
But then the thought struck me, what if she drops Bunny Bunny in a shopping centre somewhere or we have to clean Bunny Bunny? She'd be devastated! Poor little Bunny Bunny has been smeared with vegemite and snot, dropped out of the car and dragged all over the house. He is looking a little worse for wear, so it's only a matter of time before he is out of action for a few days while he undergoes so desperately need restoration work.
Now we just have to make sure the two bunnies never meet.. or you know, the world as we know it may cease to exist.
Does your child have a comfort toy or security blanket? What's your strategy to deal with a missing comforter?
Congratulations Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier One Winner!
As promised, the winner of the brilliant Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier One is Karla Kelly. I wish I had another 5 to give away because there were some fabulous answers! Here is the winning response.
My husband and I would love a Baby Bjorn carrier. There is nothing our little munchkin loves more than snuggling up close to her mum and dad. We’re currently using a stretchy wrap style carrier which has been good for winter as it’s warm but it doesn’t support her neck and gets uncomfortable for your back after wearing it for a while. It’s also not intuitive to put on so Dad doesn’t use it. As Evelyn is getting bigger and the weather is warming up we are looking to move to a more structured carrier that provides more postural support that both of us can use. I currently have bad tendonitis in my thumbs which is making using the wrap and increasingly painful experience. Yesterday I tried on a number of carriers in store and I can vouch that the Baby Bjorn is one of the easiest to put on. I was able to quickly adjust it and put Evelyn in without a twinge of pain. It also feels very comfortable to wear and the baby feels secure. We would love to win this one – the colour is gorgeous!!Congratulations Karla Kelly, I am sure you are going to love your pretty new Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier One!
