Does your child sleep with a stuff animal or something like that?

Both my kids do. Dallas who is 2 1/2 yo he sleeps with a teddy bear.
Payton who is 1yo has like 10 "babies" on her bed that she sleeps with, bears,babies,kittys. She just has to hold onto something while she is sleeping.
My 2wk old does not "have" to sleep with anything yet but I do put her security blanket next to her while she sleeps.

  • My son's first and second easter were not great as far as finding them things for easter that were safe for them. I found these little ducks and bunnies that did not have buttons or anything, their eyes were just stitched. So i bought these and he ended up getting attached to them. He would take one to daycare with him to nap with and he would sleep with them at night time. He is 5 now and still his favorite animals out of his collection. He loves to sleep with them.

  • When we took her pacifier away we started using what we call loveys. They are the little square blankets with the animal heads attached to them. She has one all the time. We have 5. One goes in the diaper bag when we leave home and she carries one in the car seat. She starts to cry she gets a lovey. It works well, she can't sleep w/o one and she is 6 1/2 mos. I know that it is early to let her have something, but it works for us.

  • I am 32 yrs old, I LOVE SLEEPING w/ my stuffed animals!
    When I had lived w/ my MOM at the age of 8 my DAD sent me a Bear and I had it til I was 16. Needles to say it got lost in a move to MO from CA.
    I sleep WAY better w/ one!
    because I LOVE soft fluffy things, my blankets are that way also, its relaxing and It comforts me to sleep. another thing about it is, it doesn't hog the covers, push you off the bed, snore, or climb over you while your trying to sleep.
    I look at it like this if some one loves things like that, their ether grow out of it in due time or It will make the person MORE affectionate in their future
