Is it safe for a 10-month-old to sleep with her teddy bear?

My 10-month-old has become attached to her teddy bear. At what age is it safe to allow her to take it to bed?


It's unsafe to place pillows, bulky covers, or large stuffed toys in an infant's crib because they could smother a young infant. And a toddler could use any of these objects to climb out of the crib. But there's no harm in placing a small teddy bear in the crib anytime after 6 months of age. Often such familiar objects help babies them feel safe, calm, and ready for sleep. It sounds as if your baby has already figured that out.
