Your child will learn to self-soothe with their lovie -- they'll be able to fall asleep without you being there.


When you think about the ways that parents try to soothe their little ones, it's easy to think of a few classic favorites: rocking, singing lullabies, and holding them close while they sleep. These are all great techniques for getting your child to bed, but they're not enough on their own. You also need something else: a lovie or special comfort item.

A "lovie" or special comfort item is an essential part of a child's sleep routine. It helps your child feel safe and secure, which can make it easier for them to fall asleep.

Your little one will grow attached to their lovie over time, making it even more important that you choose something they can easily carry around with them--and keep safe!


Lovies are great for keeping your child calm and helping them feel safe when they sleep.

  • They make the world feel safer. The idea that someone is looking out for you, or that you have something that reminds you of home makes a big difference in how well we handle our fears and anxiety in general. Whether it's a stuffed animal or blanket, having your lovie can help children feel like they're being held by someone who loves them--even if it's just their own imagination telling them so!

  • It helps them sleep better at night! Having something soft and cuddly keeps kids calm while they drift off into slumberland (and keeps Mom happy too!). If there are multiple siblings sharing a room, having one extra special toy will make sure everyone gets enough love from their favorite stuffy during nap time or nighttime snuggling sessions after lights out!

A lovie is a comfort item that your child uses to help them self-soothe. It can be anything from a stuffed animal to a blanket, but they need it in order to fall asleep on their own.

A lot of parents worry about how they will teach their children how to fall asleep without them being there as soon as they're old enough not to need them anymore. Lovies are an easy way around this because they allow you to gradually remove yourself from the equation while still providing comfort through something familiar that's always been part of your little one's bedtime routine (and life).


It's normal for children to go through several lovies as they grow up and develop new interests.

Lovies are an essential part of any child's life and can make a huge difference in helping them feel safe and secure. A lovie is also referred to as a "security object," which means that it's something you use when you need comfort or reassurance, whether that be day or night. The most popular types of lovies include stuffed animals, blankets, pillows and blankies (a blanket combined with an attached pillow). These items can help your child learn how to self-soothe by providing them with the sense of security that comes from being close to something familiar and loved by them - like mommy or daddy!

These same items can also be used during sleep training: When we want our kids to sleep independently in their own beds as soon as possible but find ourselves struggling through sleepless nights due to crying spells caused by separation anxiety issues...we often resort back into old habits such as rocking/feeding/car rides etc., all these things do nothing more than reinforce bad habits associated with falling asleep alone which result in poor quality rest throughout childhood years.


Conclusion


Your child needs a lovie if they're going to sleep well! A special comfort item can be a great way to help your child feel safe and calm when they sleep, which will lead them to have better quality rest. It's also normal for children to go through several lovies as they grow up and develop new interests in different things--this doesn't mean that the original "lovie" isn't still important!
