this lay be slightly off topic and i apologise if it is but my little one has trouble sleeping, shes 4 and just takes forever to get to sleep... i was thinking about buying her a huge teddy bear to make her feel safe and protected because i wonder if it is something to do with that- found some cool ones here http://justteddybears.stores.yahoo.net/reallybigbears.html and here http://www.twenga.com/price-huge-teddy-bear.html but i wanted to know if there were specific ones that they sell with lavender or something inside them to aid sleep? if not is lavender the best thing to stuff inside it to help her relax??
and if anyone has any other suggestions or is going through/went through the same thing id love to hear some of your advice, this bear thing really is just my first idea and im not sure that i have a plan b, c or d...
Just buy a big teddy bear and don't worry if it doesn't have any fragrance. You'll have an easier time just picking up some natural lavender, cutting open the back of the teddy bear, taking out some fluff and sewing on a pocket on the inside to contain the smell. Then when it doesn't smell anymore you can replace it easy. + you don't have to worry about artificial smells if you DiY.
