How old to keep blankie?


I've just had to wrestle to let my boy put his 'da' in the wash. 'Da' is a very old muslin cloth - the sort you wipe up baby dribble with.

My son is nearly seven and still uses it.

My daughters 6 and still has her blankie (acrylic cellular blanket) infact she has 2. One at home and one at my mums for weekends (I have a dog and cat and my mums allergic).

She'll have it for as long as she wants it though i was looking for a new one recently as it's seen better days but they don't do them in mothercare anymore which is where hers came from. She only has it for bedtime or when we're on the sofa watching films though

I had one till I went to college...to be fair though my late grandparents gave it to me and it just stayed on my pillow at night. I didn't bring it anywhere or use it any other time.

My girl was pretty much glued to hers but at around 3-3.5 yr old I put a ban on it leaving the house. Then extended that to it staying in her room unless she was ill. She is now 8 and still sleeps with it over her pillow at night but thats the only time she has it.

She did used to wrap it over her thumb and stroke her lips with it when she was little but now she says pillow cases feel crinkly on her ears (?!) so she needs the fleece blanket over.

Thanks guys! I'm happy for him to have it at home and in the car for as long as he likes. But my husband thinks he's getting too old for it :-)

What you people have told me is reassuring. Glad he's not the only one x

I had a 'stripey blankie' which was a bed sheet I became attached to until it literally wore so thin it ripped to shreds lol. I still remember being upset that mum got rid of it even with all the rips.

I still have vague memories of my mum throwing mine away when I was around 5, I was gutted.

My son has a small blanket he's had since birth, I remember swaddling him it at 3 weeks old when he needed an operation, it's a sentimental thing and he can sleep with it as long as he wants!
