soothers are the most often used item..yes i hate them! but they have a purpose...I just dont like to see children over the age of 2 with them!

blankies are the second favourite, I think. Most kids have a special blanky they have.

some children have a special toy, like a bunny or other stuffed toy.

My niece used to LOVE her tag on her whale...rubbing it on her nose :D

My youngest actually never had a special object..at least not one that she could take with her..boobies belong to me lmao!

Blankets and stuffies - it always happens!  Sometimes a photo of the parent may help a child or something of the parents so they know they wil return (like keys).

My son had a little pillow with my childhood cloth photo on either side in the middle...now that he is older he just does not care for it as much as he did.  :(

My daughter had a special blankie that our neighbor crocheted for her and she got it the day she was born.  She dragged that poor thing around every day until she was at least three.  She is 10 now, and still has it, and in fact brought it with her to grandma's house today.  i guess it just makes her feel like home...
