I was curious to know, what are your LOs comfort objects? Stuffed animal, blanket, or other (and describe). I thought it would be neat to see what everyone has!

My daughter (now 20 months) has her stuffed bat as a comfort object, she carries it with her most places and even tries to feed it with a spoon for breakfast (when i'm feeding the baby..)

my son had his "baby's pillow". This was a standard pillow with a care bear pillow case. He slept with it covering his face which really freaked out people.
He wasn't permitted to drag it around or take it places, or in the car. His only time with his "baby's pillow" was nap time and bedtime. He had his pillow until the age of 12 when he took an overnight trip with his father. He left it in the hotel. He was crushed.

my son has a blanket, with a teddy arms and head on it, he loves it, but he only has it at sleep time, or if he is sick. it was his swap item when he gave up his dummy at 10 months

My daughter grew so attached to a monkey my grandparents had given to her for her first Christmas.. so attached that she wouldn't fall asleep without it. I started to stress a bit when he got rough looking, and so we bought a couple different kinds to find one she liked, to replace him because we couldn't find that specific monkey ANYWHERE!! It worked and we found a monkey she preferred to the very first one even, so we are golden!!

It's so cute though. She carries him around everywhere, pushes him in her little stroller, wraps him in a blanket, and even "nurses" him when I nurse my youngest. Too Cute!

My son 21mths has a Blankie that has a cows head on it as well as Giraffe picture with the words mummy loves me. It goes everywhere with him. If I put him in the car without it he gives me a filthy look until I get it. This started when he was in the cot with a huge blanket of the same material but once summer came it became to hot for the big blanket which is why I bought the smaller blankie with the same material for him. He also still has a dummy which I want to try and take away. However on the other end of the scale my almost 5 year old never had a comfort object - he tossed his dummy at 18 mths himself and never really cuddled up to a special toy if he wanted something he would grab whatever he fancied to sleep with and still does

To Krista.....try looking on Ebay if you can't find the blankets you are looking for. You would be surprised what you can find on there. We once sold a stuffed animal on Ebay that was bought by a parent whose child had been quite sad since losing hers and they couldn't find another one anywhere until we listed ours. It was so nice to know we made a little girls day! :)

My daughter LOVES blankets, but doesn't seem to need a specific one (I hope that lasts!) When it is time to go to sleep at night she usually wants to hug her stuffed monkey and have a blanket cover her feet.

My son has a Winnie-the-Pooh blanket, and a blue small blankie with a teddy head on it and satin on one side, fuzzy on the other. I'm trying to find another like it, because if we lose this one we're sooo hooped!!

My daughter's comfort items are her stuffed monkey Bo and her kiki (blanket). She sometimes likes to take them to daycare, and they must go to Mimi and Papa's house when she spends the night. Thankfully she doesn't feel the need to take them in to stores (the few times she's tried I tell her Bo is going night-night and she's ok with them staying in the car.

My 21 month old son stopped using his binky around 7 months when he would be offended when I would try to give it to him. Occasionally he will find one and put it in the side of his mouth and laugh as if to say, "look at me! I'm a baby!" His only comfort item since he doesn't nurse anymore is a mole. No, not a cute little stuffed animal. A mole! On my body! Two to be exact. One on my forearm and one on the back of my shoulder blade. Thankfully, my husband puts him to sleep at night so he is fine then, but when it comes to nap time or just needing some comfort, he has to rub one of them to feel better. I know he's getting tired when I hear, "fine-amole?" (find a mole)

My daughter is 21 months and up until 2 months ago she didn't have anything, then I bough some baby clothes for my older daughters doll and Amelia took one of the baby grows. It has now become her 'snugglie' and it goes everywhere during the day. Funnily enough she's not that worried about having it at night.

I have that seahorse thing too, but my daughter hates it.. Whenever she turns it on by accident, she runs away screaming and crying.. I have NO idea why...

My son, now 21 months, has two that he just has at bedtime. One is a small blanket that is silky on one side and fuzzy on the other side with a stuffed Pooh Bear head on it and the other is a seahorse thats belly lights up and he plays music.

My daughter's comfort item is "Pink Bear" (a small blanket with a bear head)...yes it is pink. She likes to suck on the corners of it and rub the satin trim between her fingers to fall asleep. Of course we have two of them, so one is always clean. Sucking on a blanket is the LAST thing I wanted my child to do! Makes me want to gag! I hate it! But will deal with it since it really comforts her.

Currently, the only thing my 20 month old daughter cannot sleep without is this seahorse thing that plays music and the tummy lights up... she's so attached to it that her grandparents bought one for their house so she has one when she spends the night over there... but throughout the day, her favorites things are a blue teddy bear and any blanket that's in the living room...

While my 2 month old son's comfort thing would have to be me... but that's kinda to be expected at his age... lol.

My daughter has her binky (unfortunately) and too silkies, or babies as she calls them. For a while she only had the babies at night, now she won't go anywhere without them. As long as she knows they are near, she doesn't have to always hold them, but she definitely needs them.

my son's comfort object is also "me" specially my hair. he just loves to play with my hair whenever he wants to relax, be it night time, some new place where he feels uneasy or just tired.

My daughter's is her blanket, or as she calls it "blank-eet". She tried to carry it to school with her and we have to drape it over the back of her chair while she eats so that she can lean back and rub it on her cheek. :)

my daughter only has her favorites at night.. she has a bucket of stuffed animals and can pick a different one every night.. for a while now she has been requesting the same baby, bear (blanket with a bear head and tail) and puppy (which is another blanket with a puppy head). I try to change it up so she doesnt get stuck to one thing.. but these things are her constants.

My 20 month old daughter has one comfort 'object' -me! Actually maybe I'm 3 in one- actual me, and two boobies!! There are other things she likes, but none she actually draws comfort or affection from.

Clay has a stuffed ice cream cone that has a smiley face and a rattle in the cone part. It's only about 3 inches tall, I don't know why he loves it so much but he does. His other comfort object is my hand... when he has a hard time falling asleep, he will grab my hand, spread my fingers apart, and pull my palm to his cheek and hold it there... only then will he shut his eyes and sleep (God forbid I try to move my hand before he's ready haha)

my daughter sleeps with a stuffed monkey and an elmo doll. she's not overly attached but will ask for them at bedtime...........she doesn't take them to the babysitter during the day and is able to nap fine but she likes them at night, this may change when i take her soother from her which is coming very very soon!

[deleted account]

This one is unique. My son is so attached to his sippy cup that he often sleeps with it in his hand. He won't set it down to get dressed, he just switches hands, and he takes it everywhere. This is new, and he has never had another comfort object, blankie, binky, or anything else.

My daughter's only attachment is a receiving blanket... any one will do, thankfully! She looks for it when she is tired, not well or teething.

[deleted account]

hmm.. several different small teddy bears, and a pink blanket she wraps them all up in. Actually, her comfort object is anything she can wrap up in the blanket and "put down for a nap" I found my make-up compact in there yesterday ;)

my daughter brynn who is 21 months old has a pink blanket that she cannot be without....a couple months ago she just really started clinging to it and the crazy thing is, is that its the blanket I used to cover her up with in the co-sleeper when she was first born. I got the blanket on clearance at jc penneys before she was even born and so I couldnt even go to the store to purchase a "back-up". However, 3 weeks ago my mom and I were at the re-sale shop and my mom found a brand new one identical except for a small satin patch on the bottom of it. Now when one needs washed, I get out the other one and she doesn't know the difference!

Shea used to have her soother only at night time but when I took that away she started using her "buddies" for comfort instead. Before that she didn't really care.

Our lil girl likes her towel (clean cloth diaper). Since birth we used them as a burp cloth now she sees it as a night time comfort! There isn't anything that she insists on having all day other then her bink.

My son has absolutely NOTHING as a comfort object - I think that's a little odd, after reading other people's responses. My friends 3 year old son has a "mickey" that he goes to bed with each night and at naps, and actually cries for it if he forgets it at his dayhome!!!

My son has a blanket that he absolutely loves! He will not go to bed or take a nap without it. He loves it so much that we decided to buy a smaller version for travelling. He plays with it, cuddles it, kisses it, hugs it.

My daughter has "buddies" that she has just at bed time. Two are blankets with one with a bunny head, one with a puppy. The other is a stuffed dino that plays a lullaby when you pull its head. When we are camping or sleeping over elsewhere they come with for bed time.

My son ( almost 21 months) has two - a stuffed monkey, and a stuffed Eeyore. They're his buddies - he feeds them cereal, brushes their teeth, puts them to bed witha blanket, and yes, he even wants them to have "mommy milk" when he does, before they go to bed with him.

I never pictured myself 'nursing' Eeyore the donkey when I thought about having kids. ;)
