Security Blanket/Object Attachment:
Yay or Nay?
What do YOU say?
I Say Whatever!
No, really, I don’t see any issues with a baby or young child having an object for security reasons.
None of my kids every used anything like a blankie but my son did have two objects that he needed to sleep with:Austin 1999 with Blue and Tigger
Blue and Tigger.
Austin didn’t always have Blue, he got Blue when he was about a year old. Tigger was not supposed to be his. Just after Emma was born, Austin had ear tubes put in. His aunt got a little present for him while he was in the hospital so she got Tigger for Emma to be fair. Austin took Tigger immediately and slept with both Tigger and Blue for a very long time… and Emma never even knew it was hers haha. Austin with Blue and Tigger
Austin slept with Blue and Tigger for a very long time, but eventually him and Tigger grew apart. We still have Tigger and Austin will be 15 years old in July.
Blue on the other hand was very hard to get rid of. I tried talking him into “putting it away” for years, but he couldn’t… and I couldn’t make him. He slept with Blue until we moved one year, back in 2009. He gave it to me and asked if I could keep it safe for him. He was almost 12 years old! YES… 12 years old is when he finally decided he was finished with Blue. I could cry just thinking of it! See Blue and Tigger?
I keep Blue in my bottom dresser drawer. The drawer that I hardly go into.
Mike would sometimes tease him in a light kind of way. He’d say, “Austin, what are you going to do if you sleep over at a friends house? Are you going to bring Blue with you?” Austin was old enough to know that it was a little unreasonable, but he just wasn’t ready.
I really did not see a need to force him to get rid of Blue before he was ready.
I guess if the security object was something different like a blankie or special pillow, I still wouldn’t have a problem with it. I don’t think I would anyway. If the object comforts them, how can I deny them that?
Austin in 2009 - 12 years old
This was Austin in 2009, when he finally gave up Blue.
Now it’s your turn.

  1. Awwww I love all the pictures with Blue! That is just darling. I don’t think I would have minded if my girls grew an attachment to a security object, but they just never had any interest.

  2. I personally do not have a problem with the security blanket or toy– two of our babies had them and two of our babies didn’t–The two that did gave them up when they were ready on there own. One was almost three and the other decided when she was about four. They just seemed to know they just didn’t need them any longer.

  3. Piece of writing writing is also a excitement, if you be familiar with then you
    can write otherwise it is complex to write.

  4. Le sexe et la provoc font vendre, c’est bien connu.
