with the passing of my daughter, the hospital provided some stuff for us to keep as momentos, but i took the pillow she was laying with, and i carry it everywhere inside my purse. now i have her ashes sitting in my living room, that truly helps me as well.
i think whatever reminds u of them although it can bring back memories when u see it, i got a tattoo on my side in 09 for my son . i thought it was something nice that nobody could take away if that makes sense . good luck
I think that doing whatever it is that gives you comfort is okay. I personally keep small mementos of past loved ones on my night table, so that I can feel and recall their love before I go to sleep. I find this comforting.
i had m/c at 11 weeks in march 2012 and kept the scan pic and all photos of tests etc together in a foldrer which also contains a letter which i wrote to my unborn baby saying all the things i never got the chance to.
I too lost my baby at 20 weeks gestations i delivered my son and everything the hospital took pics and gave me a box with stuff in in and i keep in on my dresser i think it helped me out and gives me a physical thing to see as i never seen him.
