    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...

    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...

    My Baby Blanket Calms Me

    My grandma sewed my baby blanket before I was born, it's going on 19 years now. It was bright yellow and had 6 animals printed on one side of it. Now it's a greyish white and the animals are long gone. It's tattered and falling apart. I've tried giving it up multiple times but it...

    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 "Star Blankie" was one of the most important

    things to me as a child. My parents used to argue a lot and whenever I was scared id cling to my blankie. Ive taken this blanket so many places. If I could pick one sentimental item in my life to keep, itd be my blankie. I cant explain the level of comfort I get when im...

    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!

    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...

    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.
