For some, it’s essential oils. For others, it’s way too many pillows. And for 42% of us, it’s stuffed animals that help us sleep better at night.

According to research, close to half of people still sleep with stuffed animals at night! But the question is, is it weird to still sleep with a stuffed animal as an adult? Research says no.

Some people sleep with stuffed animals out of simple habit, while others do so for comfort, for better sleep, or to control their anxiety. For the same reasons, 44% of people sleep with their pets at night. 

As long as it’s not affecting your daily functions or relationships, sleeping with a stuffed animal is perfectly fine. As long as it doesn’t belong to your kids!
