Best Stuffed Animals for Baby to Sleep With

When it comes to helping babies get a good night’s sleep, moms will do just about anything! Frankly, our daily survival depends on it. So these baby-safe stuffed animals are the perfect buddies to help your little one fall asleep fast.

Of course, there are a few important things to consider as it relates to babies sleeping with any items in their cribs. So, when can a baby safely sleep with a stuffed animal?

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends waiting until after your baby has reached their first year before allowing any blankets, bumpers, or stuffed animals to be in their crib while sleeping.

Once your precious baby reaches this milestone you can feel confident to introduce them to a sweet new friend for many hours of sweet cuddly slumber…hopefully!

Just one more word of caution from another mother. If your baby is struggling with sleep such as loud snoring that wakes them up or sounds like they can’t breathe or they wake up gagging, choking, or screaming in the night please get your baby checked by their pediatrician.

Two of my newborns had conditions that hindered their sleep and needed treatment right away. Once your baby is able to sleep normally, these stuffed lovies will offer comfort and cuddles as intended.

Now on to the best stuffed animals for your baby to sleep with!
