Looking for a Spare Security Blanket
There’s a mom in Ohio who is desperately seeking a replacement pink lamb security blankie for
her child. The lamb has pointed ears and a soft nose, Does this item seem familiar? Have you seen one lately? Can
you help her out? Please let me know.
This is a typical frantic phone call we get from parents.
” I have been trying to find a backup bunny security blanket. My daughter and
her bunny are inseparable. When I wash it, she stands in front of themachine and cries. I’m really in trouble if I lose it. I need a spare!”
Sometimes, the call is more desperate. “We are leaving the airport and our baby left his security blanket on the plane. Do you have a ……….? We try to tell parents and friends, when you buy a baby a security blanket; be sure and buy at least two.
One Father called us to check on the size of our elephant security blanket’s ears. His son’s blanket was discontinued and he was looking for a replacement. His son had rejected blanket after blanket because the ears were different than his original security blanket. Unfortunately, our elephant had ears that were too short, and we couldn’t help him out.
The babies know. I don’ t know how, but they know the difference. They want exactly what they had in the crib when they first came home from the hospital.
When our daughter was small and we realized what her favorite security blanket was ; the blanket was no longer available in Miami stores. The whole extended family searched all over the country until we had a collection of six spares. The last one actually was on the verge of wearing out , when she finally gave up her security blanket.
So the moral of the tale is to have many extra security blankets.
, because your baby will not leave home without it.
