Several adult social media users are going
viral after sharing the items they’ve been
sleeping with since they were babies.
The trend, which began on TikTok
with a user named coreyxnathaniel
has spawned a massive online debate — .
with some calling the videos “nasty” while
others have found them extremely relatable.
Each clip follows a similar format, with users
— many of whom are in their early to mid-20s —
revealing their decades-old baby blankets.
Many of the clips left the internet deeply
divided over whether sleeping with a
baby blanket is gross or comforting.
“You may as well go sleep with the spiders in
the corner,” one commenter wrote. “LMAO I
THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE,” another wrote.
One TikTok user named twigstrem, who is 22, shared the plush,
“baby development toy” she’s slept with since childhood. “His
name is Friend don’t come for me,” the user captioned her video.
“I think friend may need to go to
the hospital,” one commenter joked.
for many TikTok users, the videos gave
them a chance to find solidarity in something
they’d previously been embarrassed by.
“I expected this to flop but even tho its a little embarrassing
to still have Friend, it’s nice knowing ppl my age still find
comfort in their bby toys,” twigstrem commented on her clip
