Son age two was breastfed until 14 months then onto cows milk but still has an association with my boobs as a sleep aid. He likes to grab and squish them as he falls asleep
/we occasionally co sleep)

I know it probably sounds bizarre but we are looking for suggestions for a soft toy/ hot water bottle to replace my boobs!! All the toys we have tried are too firm!! grin He will be moving to a toddler bed very soon so we would like to introduce the comforter before then. Thanks!!

Does he take a dummy? If so, you could try one of those soft toys to which you can attach a dummy or two - I can't remember what they're called but I'm sure there must be a name for them... Then he could have something to suck and something soft to squeeze?

Thanks Bingles. He doesn't take a dummy unfortunately.

My sister breast fed her DS until he was about 10 months old and he continued to use her breasts as a sleep aid until he was almost 5 grin

jellycat do some lovely squishy soft animals, DD has a panda that she loves. it's really soft and squashes a bit like a small pillow. Not sure if it would work for what you're thinking though as she still boobs to sleep!

One of those squidgy pillows...I want to say microbeads? You see them as travel pillows a lot.
