Blanket Boy

Laura has her Snugglie, and Jason has his blanket. When I put Jason to bed, he rolls on his tummy, reaches for his fleecy blanket, and holds it close to his cheek. Bedtime rituals and comfort items simplify getting the kids to bed and sleep.

    More than the soft warmth, the consistency of bedtime rituals make a child feel secure.

      True, though I am a strong believer in comfort / security items to help children learn to self sooth. They allow for consistency when away from home and give cover in insecure moments.

  2. Oh, what a sweetums. EB likes to cover herself up in the night and her feet peek out, too. Now that doesn’t explain why I go in there and she’s laying on just enough of her blanket to not let me cover her again. She wakes up with 3 blankets in there sometimes just for my peace of mind.

      Funny on the 3 blankets – tonight, Jason has 3 blankets in his crib. I gave him one, Jung gave him one, and Laura gave him one… I’ve been putting him in a sleeper at night so that I don’t have to worry about covering him. He moves from stem to stern in his crib. When he is in lighter jammies, I stick him in a sleep sack to keep him cozy.
