Is it common to fall asleep with your sippy cup in one hand and a half eaten corndog in the other? This is my nephew Parker. He's about 17.5 months old. My sister went to put him in his crib and he still wouldn't let go of the corndog, so his entire nap was with food. Some kids sleep with blankies or stuffed animals, but Parker sleeps with his "num nums" (Parker's way of saying food). However now that I think about it, there are times that I would LOVE to eat myself to sleep.
