Imagine if you had a secret weapon to navigate life.

Imagine when you were born someone handed you a secret weapon to assist you to navigate through life.

A little secret tool that gave you confidence to walk into a room when you were feeling really shy.

A secret weapon that was the answer to insomnia,  you would always sleep well with this tool beside you.

The same little thing could provide you with the ability to remain calm when all around you was a little madness.

Your secret weapon would save you from loneliness, together you were always ok, your secret weapon  reminded you that there was plenty to do in your imagination.

Imagine if when you physically hurt yourself, just rubbing this little treasure could take the pain away and make you feel better.

One little object that could reduce any anxiety, provide courage and calmness, bravery and pain management and all costing nothing and hurting no one.

But then one day, the big people around you decided that you shouldn't have this object anymore, and no matter how you cried, begged and pleaded they didn't listen and they took it away.

It wouldn't feel very good.

And that is why Stinky Blanklet will be staying for some time yet.

  3. Miss almost 7 still has here 'Pooh bear' comforter that she sleeps with. She doesn't carry it around it's only for bed, and if it makes her feel safe and sound at night, she can have it for as long as the stitches wear. x

  7. I got all teary about this! What an awesome secret weapon. I've tried in vain to get my boys attached to something like this to help them, especially L, with separation anxiety but nothing has stuck. I say stick with it as long as she needs it. X

  8. My son had his 'sheety'. It was actually the cut up sheets from our old queen bed. He would come into us of a night and rub the sheet on his face to fall back asleep. When we upgraded to a king bed he was devastated that we got new sheets. So my mum cut up the old ones and hemmed them so he had 'sheeties' to take to bed wherever we might be. I still have those wonderful sheeties (he is 8). Ready to hand him if he is having a sad day ...
