Hey Mylotters, Do you need something to hold on while sleeping, a teddy bear or any soft toys etc.. I do, I used to have a fluffy teddy bear until it got spoiled by my drools...so i had to replace it with a new soft toy but it just couldn't give me the same comfort ...So now I sleep with a pillow..Just hold to it and go to sleep.....

my teddy - teddy
I have a teddy that i got when I was really little and i've always kept it on my bed. I don't cuddle with it or anything anymore ( i used to when i was little ) but it always lays on my bed on the side with me at night. I use my dog if i wanna cuddle something lol but I feel weird if its not on my bed. I had moved off my bed at one point for a couple of days but I had to put it back because it felt weird? I love my teddy! lol

I have a teddy bear that I won from a fun fair game last year, but I don't really hug it to sleep. I put the teddy bear next to my bed though, and I hardly touch it. I don't want to hug it to sleep because I don't want it to spoil so fast. Besides, I want to keep it to remind of my achivement at the fun fair that made me win this teddy bear. On the other hand, I hug a small pillow to sleep; I feel that there's not really much difference in hugging a pillow or teddy bear to sleep because it's still hugging something, right?

I sleep with a teddy bear and a stuffed rabbit, both gifts from my husband. I need to hold on to them to keep from twisting my arm underneath me and waking up cramped. Plus, I have slept with the bear since my first date with my husband 17 years ago when he gave him to me.

I do not any more but I did have a fluffy lamb when I was younger. It feels very comfortable and comforting to have something pressed against you. I do have the same pillow for over years now that I snuggle up to, so I guess the urge to cuddle with something stays when someone goes to sleep. Mostly anyone cuddles their partner too when they go to sleep, right? :) Seems like a lot of people do need that sensation to get relaxt and able to sleep.

No, unfortunately I'm past all of that, lol. I do have a particular pillow that I need to sleep with. I always have to sleep with my head on two pillows and my favorite goes on top. I'm very restless in my sleep so I don't think a teddy would help me, lol.

When I was a kid I always slept with a panda on one side of me and a bunny on the other. I slept with them from the time I was about 7 until gee lol I dont know until they literally fell apart MANY MANY years later. They were so comfortable to sleep with. My daughter sleeps in my bed but when she doesnt I have a body pillow that I stuff behind my back or I have a really hard time sleeping.

I don't like teddy bear, I have an allergic to fur of stuff toys. When I was a child I used to that, but I stopped doing that when I got this allergic rhinitis due to dust. I prefer hugging pillows now, a lot of pillows.
