Blanket Sucker

Jackson went through a brief phase of using a pacifier (they gave it to him while in the NICU and he continued to use it for about 2 months after that) and a brief phase of sucking on his thumb (that lasted all of a month maybe). He's on to something bigger and better now.... his blanket!



Yep, Jackson is a blanket sucker. It's actually quite funny to watch as he tries to cram just as much of his blanket into his mouth all at once. I don't remember when this "habit" started or how long he's been doing it. If you attempt to try to take the blanket away from him, you better be ready for a fight and some tears. If you pick up the blanket off the floor, you better be ready for a wet, slobbery and smelly piece of fabric.



Jackson is somewhat particular about which blanket he will suck/chew on. Nick and I have tried to give him a couple of different blankets that we thought would be totally acceptable. Our blankets were only met with tears though as they apparently were not the right kind of blanket.

That has to help with the gums too though. Chewing on it has to feel good. So maybe it's a blessing in disguise. :-)

He looks soo cute! How does he carry them? LOL -It looks like he only like BIG blankets!

Kris, he seems to have just learned how to walk without tripping over the blanket! I don't know how he does it sometimes...

That's kind of funny to see him do it - so it's not always the same blanket? Just a certain style? Like I said - I kind of understand where he's coming from - I had a blankie quirk of my own.

Maybe you could get him to use one of Nicks old socks. That would be much easier to wash.
