Do your children go to bed with unusual comforters?

My dd is currently fast asleep gripping tightly to a superflex bendy ruler as in cuddled up to it confused.
She has a billion teddy bears, this is the third night this week she has been asleep clutching the ruler which she has not used at all during the day.
AIBU to think she is a bit odd grin

That is odd!!

Mine are pretty normal. Dd1 is covered by 2 huge teddies and dd2 has 5 of her blankies (filthy things that are in need of a wash) and 2 huge teddies.

Remember a 2yo taking plastic duck to bed with him

There was a child at DS's playgroup who never turned up without his small metal teapot.

One of those café ones that spill the tea all over the place.

DS1 used to take the Happyland Granny to bed. He now takes a torch, or Batman or a Star Wars character. The others take blankies/teddies.

And DS had a hat called Blim Blim Chicken Hat which he refused to part with.

A friend's dc used to sleep in his cot with his hands through the bars on top of her hoover. She refused to let him have it in the cot with him to his misery. grin

Ds, 6, goes to bed with 'noo noo' - one of those taggy things aimed at newborns. Not that odd bit despite having noo noo since he was boen he never gav it a second glance or in fact a name untik a year ago, and now he's decided they are inseparable hmm

DP used to sleep with his Star Wars video box set...

Dd3 goes to bed with a glow in the dark rubber skeleton from Halloween three years ago. His name is Bookey (rhymes with spooky which dd was trying to say).

My brother used to go to sleep every night clutching a blue plastic tray of matchbox cars. Ds goes to sleep at the minute clutching various Lego figures (changed according to which are in favour that day).

Ds1 (now16) went through a phase of taking a wooden spoon to bed to snuggle up to...

pmsl at the hoover though! grin

My daughter had an old Gymboree dress with a very large label which she used to rub! It was called Wibbly!

DD 2yrs insists in taking her swim nappy to bed.

When my DS was about 2 he took the bath plug to bed with him every night.

pixwix Sat 12-Oct-13 23:10:43

The bath plug! grin

curlycat Sat 12-Oct-13 23:12:58

When ds was younger he used to take the wee metal matchbox cars with him. We had to count them in then count them out again once he was sleeping - missed one once and her woke up with the imprint of it on hus face!

monkeymamma Sat 12-Oct-13 23:13:49

Ds first comfort toy was his sun hat. He had to be wearing it or there ws outright refusal to go to bed. It's now diggers or tractors, they are hard and plastic and look soooo uncomforting!

whois Sat 12-Oct-13 23:32:21

The bath plug? That's ace!

Ds1 used to sleep with a small rubber skeleton he called 'Skertalin' smile

My toddler likes to take a large hardback book to bed with her. But she has thought this all out, as she uses it to bash herself on the head with when she feels herself falling asleep....

Ds1 (5) wears his dads fur lined dear stalker type hat to bed. It looks so funny on his wee head.
