    What do you call them and what do you do with them? I got three, and I want to be able to call them by name on the thank you cards, but I'm not sure what to call them.

    First time mom here! lol

    They are just little comfort blankets, my mum said I used to put mine over my face all the time!! So I've bought 2 for my LO. I remember my cousin having one when she was small, and when it was being washed she used to sit at the washing machine and watch it spinning lol.

    I wouldn't have the slightest idea what to call them either. LOL My older son has one that was given to him by my sister and my mom and I got one for my older son to give as a gift to his little brother when he's born. :) I think security blanket is as good as anything! :thumbup:

    I've heard security blankets as well as blanket buddies. It depends on the company. I had an eeyore one for my son that was called a blanket buddy. I prefer the blanket buddy name. I recently got a cute pink teddy bear one as a gift from a fellow BnB member. :) Some of them double as rattles, too.

    People call them "loveys". Just soft security blanket that happens to be blended w a stuffed animal. DD was given a lamb one, which she would hold as a baby but never got too attached to.

    I've heard loads of Americans call them lovelies! I picked up an adorable cute froggy one from Toys r Us in Time Square when I went to New York when I was pregnant with my first baby, and it'll be getting passed down to this baby. :)

    Apparently if you sleep with one in your bed and then give it to baby, they can smell you on it and it helps comfort them x
