Do Your Kids Sleep with Anything Weird?
Editor's Note: Do your kids sleep with anything... unique? Or, even if it is a typical sleeping gadget -- like a blanket or a teddy bear -- are there severe consequences if the sleeping gadget is not present at bedtime? DeeDee at FiddleDeeDee recently shared about her son's bedtime routine -- and a parental fail that almost derailed bedtime. Do you have a story to share about the weirdest thing your kid sleeps with? -Jenna
A couple of years ago, we discovered the healing comfort of ice cold on Jensen’s atopic dermatitis flare-ups. If he had a particularly bad flare up, we’d throw the ice pack over him when all else failed. One night, in the dead of winter, he chose to sleep with it. Just in case there was a middle-of-the-night flare up.
He’s been sleeping with it ever since.
As long as someone (ME) remembers to replace it in the refrigerator every morning.
