Kids bed comforters
Babies and kids have comforters and sometimes adults get annoyed because the children become reliant on the comforters. The only way a baby or child can get a comforter is if an adult/carer allows it and nurtures the reliance. To make matters not so urgent if the comforter is lost or destroyed make sure:
1. You purchase more than one comforter – if it is a flannelette sheet for example – cut it up into huggable sections for replacements!
2. If it is a particular teddy – make sure you have 2 or 3 – because these have to last many years! (loved dearly for up to 8-10 years and then stored forever!)
3. Have rules about where the comforter is allowed to go. We lost my daughter’s teddy at the shops and our rule from then on was comforters were to stay in the car or at home! Of course if the child is on holidays the comforter must go – just take very good care of it!
One of the most famous security blankets is that owned by Linus from the Peanuts. He resisted all attempts by his friends and family to get rid of it and would become weak and dizzy if it was only in the wash for a short time. Snoopy tried every trick in the book to take it from him as in the classic clip below:
