My son, Brandon, 4 months old. This is how he naps (I'm right there of course). He lovessss his blankets. He prefers when it touches his face I think, or at the very least he has to hold it. Any of your babies do that?
Sorry if I didn't upload the picture correctly, I can never seem to do it correctly.

I can't see the picture but my daughter is the same way. She LOVES her blanket and also likes it next to her face. If I take the blanket from her she starts crying, if she's tired and I hand her the blanket she'll fall on it (purposely) and just lay there for a few minutes. Shes 13 almost 14 months btw. But she's been like this since she was born.

My daughters are 7.5 and 5.5 and they've both had blankets their great grandma made since they were babies. They only sleep with them but will both still rub the blankets on their cheeks while falling asleep.

My middle baby use to pile everything on top of his head if anything was in the crib with him. He did it right from the beginning (blankets,pillows (when he was older). He does it still at 3+ years. :D

DD has slept with blankets since she was born and has always loved snuggling her face into it. She chose a favorite blanket at about six months old. She has it with her everywhere all the time and can't sleep without it. She always has her face buried in it or has it pulled over her head. She's 16 months old. She's actually taking a nap right now with her head covered with it.

Aww, he's too cute. :D DD is three months old and just started snuggling her blankets when she sleeps. At night I swaddle her, so there's nothing for her to snuggle (she's not rolling around yet so I'm not comfortable putting a loose blanket in bed with her), but when she's in her Boppy pillow on the couch or in her swing, she usually has a loose blanket laying on top of her and recently she's started grabbing them and pulling them up to her face and wrapping her arm around it hahah. It melts me heart. :)

DD has always needed a blanket to sleep. Her crib is filled with stuffed animals and blankets (like I seriously wonder how she sleeps she has so many in there) I tried taking some out she wouldn't sleep so I put them all back in. She is 13 months now but she has been doing this since she was a few weeks old.

Thank you for posting his picture for me! I will get it right one of these times. :)

I feel like I can't leave the room when he has a blanket in arm's reach..when he's awake or asleep. He's a stinker! :)
