Our expert says:
A genuine Security Blanket ! A bad habit, and maybe indicating that you still feel inappropriately insecure. 7 is very old to START such a habit, which generally belongs to a much earlier area of life. I'm not at all surprised your husband finds it bothersome, though I don't see why it should in any way harm your son.
Interesting and relevant response from JOhn. Yes, do see a counsellor to clarify what insecurities and what assumptions you are clinging to along with the blanky, so you can move further into secure adulthood.
