What do you put in the cot with your LO?

Sorry if this has already been asked but I couldn't find a thread.

What does everyone put in the cot (if anything) with LO?
Up until now I have always just put DS in bed with his sleep bag and he has a projector that does a slide show on the ceiling and plays music, he has a muslin that he snuggles up to in the day to get to sleep but he has never needed it to go off at night!!
Just lately he has been waking in the night, and I keep thinking that its just for a bit of comfort as he isn't hungry/need changing etc, usually a cuddle just gets him back off. I'm wondering if I should put a teddy in with him or something? I definetly wouldn't feel comfortable giving him his muslin at night as it scares me so much he will get it on his face, but I thought maybe a small teddy or something? He's 6months old now, up until now I have never felt comfortable putting anything in with him, he has got a favourite Mickey Mouse small teddy so I'm thinking maybe try that?
What age have others put something in with there LO? I'm not sure if I'm doing it to soon or should have done it a while ago!!! ;)

My lo has his toys but at this age they don't really use them for comfort when they wake.

Is Zachary moving more cause cj is and he is getting himself into all kinds of awkward places?

Also at six months he MIT be having a growth spurt which could be the reason.

Cj has always had things in with him and I don't worry cause has a breathing monitor. Many a time I have to take a blanket off his face which he has been lying on.

It might be something you just don't know and it will stop as quickly as it started.xxxx

Thanks Gemma :)

He does seem to move around a lot more now!!
We also have a breathing monitor so you would think I would be a bit more laid back about it ;)
Will give his teddy a go tonight I think and see how it goes!! :)

I have just ordered a Fisher Price Seahorse for DD for xmas. DS has one and he seems quite attched to it and it seemsto help him settle. DS has always been a terrible sleeper and until recently wouldnt self settle so its something I am working on with DD. She also has a projector thingy and I will add the seahorse at xmas. :xmas3:

You know what being a bit more laid back also comes with second child.

My mum on the other hand is still worried sick about every little thing.

He will be fine with a teddy as long as it is baby safe and has nothing he can get tangled in. My lo just finds real comfort from having something over his face. You just need find what works for them.. Must work for c cause he sleeps roughly 13 hours every night and has done since 8 weeks old.x

We put a slumberbear in with ds when he was born, the music seemed to soothe him. For christmas that year someone got him the fp seahorse, he has it on every night, we take it on holiday and it's his best night time friend.

He sleeps in a growbag but he loves a fleece blanket to hold against his cheek also, we tried the small comforter ones but only a proper cot blanket seems to suit him. It worried me silly at the beginning (despite the angelcare monitor) and there have been times I've had to pull it off him but overall it's been fine and it's a comfort so I let him enjoy it.

Hope you all had a good night tonight x
