How many of your children have “lovies”? That is what we call our special blankies and stuffed animals that the kids need to have in order to fall asleep and stay asleep. Goodness knows those lovies are super important to the kiddos but equally important to us as parents!! Thank you for a full nights sleep!!

My daughter has one called Pinky Bear and I can't pry it from her that often when I do I try to wash it but she doesn't even want it washed she says it may go away like the socks….I have that same fear *sigh*

This is such a tricky situation. Or at least it was when my kids were little. I had to actually wash their favorite animals and toys when they were napping or on a play date. They were convinced that the washing machine was going to kill their favorites.

My son ha this blanket he did not ever want to be separated from! I love how Downy helps to keep the lovies soft for them. Even though my kids are older they have blankets they love to have be super soft and Downy does a great job at keeping them that way.

I wash my kids stuffed animals often. When they were younger I didn't think of it much but then I finally realized they must be since they're dragged everywhere or fall on the floor all the time!

My daughter has changed her lovies over the years from a handmade blanket to an old cardigan of mine. She is very particular about them being soft so I have always used fabric softener when washing them. They get dirty so fast and we always had a back up so when one had to be washed they had another one handy.

Washing my kids lovies has always been something that I was afraid to do, too! I can only imagine the backlash if the washer/dryer ruined them! Thank you for the tip to put them in a pillow case and wash on delicate.
Inspiring Kitchen says
My daughter had a lovie. My daughter called it "bear," but it's actually a small pillow that she brought with her everywhere. I had to wash it gently because I was afraid I'd ruin it.
Laura Funk says
I am not sure how, but neither of my kids have lovies…However, I am Emberlynns, because she is tough to put to sleep without me.

I wish I knew about this product for washing my daughter's favorite Webkinz. This signature series dog means everything to her but my husband washed and dried it and the next thing you know the hair is all fried and it has bald spots! She has never let us forget what we did! lol
OMgoodness your images are adorable!!My Grandmother used Downy for as long as I can remember. It is definitely one of the best ways to protect your most precious washables!
