    Stuffed dog, actually!

    I do have a few teddy bears, but it's my dog that I can't sleep without. My parents bought it for me when I was little kid because I was upset that I couldn't have a real dog. I guess it was a pretty good surrogate because I'm still sleeping with it over twenty years later...

    I Have To....really.

    I'm to the point now that I can't get to sleep without my teddy bear. If I am so tired that I just fall asleep without him, I have nightmares. I used to just sleep with him for comfort, now it's a necessity. I will lose sleep if I don't have him curled up next to me in bed or...

    I'm way to old to but I still sleep with a

    teddy bear most nights. When I feel lonely it's nice to have something to hold onto and imagine it's hugging me back. I'm 14 and still sleep with a teddy bear. Is that weird?

    When I was little my Gran Dad won me a big

    teddy bear on the boardwalk. A couple of months later he died which made me very sad, even now. So I've always cuddled my Big Bear when I go to bed because it makes me feel like he is still here with me and keeping me safe.

    I sleep with three teddy bears now,

    but when I was younger I had a bed full of them, literally to the point where I couldn't move. I used to play pretend games with them and I use them mainly for comfort and hugs now, haha

    I don't think I ever slept with a teddy bear.

    I slept with Barbie dolls. I stopped playing with them by age 12. I was a big baby. I'm not a teddy bear girl. For valentine day don't buy me a teddy Bear I would give it a little girl outside or my sibling. Buy me a watch or bracelet. Cheap or expensive doesn't matter as long...

    Can't Sleep Without Him

    I have to have my Teddy Bear to sleep at night. If I don't have him, I have a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. I feel very tired the next morning as well.
