Hi, I have a four year old and an 18 month old who both have comfort objects they are SUPER attached too. My four year old son HAS to have a piece of paper to tickle his face with, its strange lol, like a rolled up piece of computer paper...He cannot sleep unless he has this to tickle himself with. He calls it his tickle paper.He is also hooked on his soother...I know I know, he is too old, I hear it everyday, but he is only allowed to use it for bed and we are working on cutting it out completely. It is his comfort item, it makes him feel secure. I am thankful it isn't sucking his thumb, because I cant get rid of that! My daughter needs to have her "ubi" (aka pacifier) stuffed bear, she calls him Teddy, and her blankie. What types of comfort objects do your children need to have for bed, etc. Will you let them use them for comfort as long as they need to or will you take them away at a certain age?
