I had a yellow one that was satin on one side and soft on the other. My Grandma made it. I swear I can still feel it in my fingers. So soft and silky! I also sucked two of my middle fingers. I came out of my mom with callouses on my itty bitty fingers.
I think it's important that little ones have at least one thing to comfort them. Both of my boy's had blankies until they were about 1 or 1 1/2 years old. Isaak has dog stuffed animals and Mica has dino ones. Isaak's always been much more into that kind of thing then Mica. Kids are different in many ways, and the same in others.
My Wee View is hosting a giveaway for an AllyZabba Travel Blankie. I'd love to give my cousin's new baby to be one of these blankies!
