A lovey is a “transitional”object that helps a baby find comfortand deal with separation anxiety from Mom and Dad. They’re especially useful to handle when baby wakes up, and the parents aren’t in the room, or when they’re in a stressful situation and need something to help soothe their anxiety.
Other terms for loveys include security blanket or comfort object.
