    Default Blankets and how to ditch them ?

    Was wondering if anyone elses littles ones got attatched to an item. You know the whole it has to go absolutley everywhere and they will not sleep without it?

    For us its blankets. They have both had them since birth and they are terrible. I fight them off them once a week to wash and your swear i was killing them by doing so. And even though they get washed regularly they are in terrible terrible condition. Ds is 4 and dd is 2.

    Any suggestions on how to ditch the blankies

    My cousin used to drag around a blanket.
    My aunty chopped it up into a few smaller blankets and hemmed the edges so she could wash them frequently without a tantrum.

    Ive tried that with ds' i cut in half and had to put new silk trimming on the length i cut, he had a major meltdown and now carries them both.

    Im hoping with him he will drop it on his own next year doing pre prep.

    But was hoping some ideas would float about so i could ditch them completely mainly with dd

    Ds2 was attached to his blanket. I remember wash days.

    So, to help him move on from the blanket, around 2 1/2 we started leaving it in his room when he came into the lounge room. Then it was while he was outside, popping to the shop to get milk, dropping ds1 at school, doing the shopping.

    After a while he just didn't want/need it anymore.

    But he did pick up a stuffed toy dog around that time, and still has it 2 years later
