DS1 didn't have one, DD had a blankie, but she never wanted to take it anywhere (unless we were going overnight), DS2 has his panda, but he generally doesn't take him out of his bed, DS3 has 3 blankies (identical, it was originally an attempt to always have a clean one, but went arry) a binkie, and a stuffed turtle (about 14in). He walks around the house with blankies and binkie and on rough days turtle too. I have put my foot down though that when we leave the house he can take one binkie and one blankie. Blankie/binkie seem to be one in his mind, he cannot have one without the other, but turtle is separate. Am I being too lenient? Too strict?
If your children have a lovie (or many!) are there any restrictions on it? Such as they have to stay in bed or they can't leave the house etc?
