Hi Kyle's Mummy,
My daughter was just over 2 when I took the plunge, she is now 27 mths, like Kyle, she only had it to go to sleep etc but over the months she started to want it out of bed. As she kept dropping it while playing then unable to find it in the house, I told her she would lose it and the next time it took an hour to find it, I told her I couldn't, as long as she beleived for the next week or so that I was looking for it while she slept, she was OK. Had slight issues for about 4 days then occasionally asked, only after about 2 weeks did I tell her that I couldn't find it and she didn't need it anymore, (big girl and all that), now she laughs when she sees her 3mth old brother with his and just says "we can't find mine" never has attempted to take his..
Good luck, and trust me, its a better look for the child.
