    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.

    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...

     I am almost nineteen, a college freshman and a male. and I am proud to say that I still sleep with my baby blanket. It is kind of weird to say I still have it, but it is my little piece of heaven. I love my blanky even though it is ragged and torn, but it doesn't matter. It...

    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...

    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!

    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...

    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...

    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...
