My son has never slept with a stuffed toy, but now at 8 has started. Concerned?

Just before his 8th Birthday he started taking his soft toy cow "Cowie" to bed with him and everynight is asking for it. Nothing major has changed in our home life. Should I be concerned? Why now is he getting attached to this toy and never had any interest in it before?

i wouldnt be overly concerned. i had a similar issue with one of my children around the same age. he grew out of it in less than a year. children more often than not do these things for a little bit of attention or extra comfort. theres no harm in it.
