Security blanket

In the 1920s there was an overblanket that was fastened on to cribs and strollers and it was called a security blanket because it was meant to keep the babies in. By World War II it was being used in a more figurative sense and Charles Schulz, with his Peanuts cartoon, brought it into a fully figurative use. (source)
