    Comfort Zone

    I'm 18 years old and still sleep with my first baby blanket. I call 'him' "purple blanky". For as long as I can even remember, I've slept with it every night. I smell the edges and it calms me down. Something about the familiarity of the smell seems to have a stress-relieving...

    Soft As a Kitty

    Yup...my mom always said that I'd still be sleeping with my blanket when I got married.  Well, I've been married for 8 years and I am no where near (and never will be) close to giving my blankie up.  That thing has been there for me and with me through thick and thin...

    So I'm A Big Baby....

    As a child, I had this small white baby blanket, couldn't sleep without it. I remember spending the night at my aunts house, and it disappeared before bedtime, and I cried for probably an hour or 2 before they put me in bed with my sister to share hers. (I think Mom actually had...

    I'm Not Weird

    I don't call it a "blankie" I refer to it as just another blanket that I use to keep warm. It reminds me of my childhood.But it's not a bad thing to sleep with something that you've had since a small child. It doesn't make you any less of a person.I'm not saying that I'm going to...

    Is It Normal?

    I still sleep with my baby blanket and my cousin used to make fun of me because he found it in my sleeping bag. Is it normal to sleep with a baby blanket at age 12? I'm turning 12 in July, but my blankie still comforts me, and I don't know why. I can't sleep tonight, and it's...

    My Bubby

    I just bought a third baby blanket which I call bubba or bubby. I still have the original two blankets but they are so tattered I fear they will completely fall apart and be lost forever. I'm almost 17 and my dad says he will buy me a fourth bubba on my wedding day.

    Don't Judge Me!

    Just because I still sleep with my baby blanket doesn't mean I'm a "baby" just means I can. I'm not afraid to say that I still sleep with my baby blanket. It's nice to let this out. BUt anyways I still sleep with my baby blanket near or with me and I'm not araid to say it!
