My daughter decided many months ago that she wanted to nuzzle my elbows as a comforter. At first this was cute. However she is requesting 'elbow' all the time which is sometimes difficult to accommodate if I need the use of my arms i.e. most of the time unless I have nothing to do (haha). I would simply like to give her a substitute in which she might find comfort. (Also my elbows are becoming a little sore too.) Please could anyone give me any pointers.

Don't know if it's any help, but our ds used to have a small pair of baby sized socks which he used to snuffle/nuzzle for comfort. The origin of these was that he had them over his hands when he was a young baby to stop him scratching his eczema at night. Then the eczema cleared up, but he had got used to "snuzzling" the socks on his hands, so he kept them as comfort items. He had a clean pair every day so they didn't get disgusting!
