Immigration Issues/naturalization papers?

Question
Hey, I'm not sure if this counts as an immigration question, but I hope so!
My entire family was born in India but we moved to America when I was very young, so I grew up here. My parents applied for American citizenship, and received it while I was still underage, so I became an American citizen by default. However, I just found out that while I am an American citizen, I did not receive naturalization papers, like my parents, because I became a citizen simply by being their child and this has me a little worried because, if I lose my passport, without naturalization papers, it will be very difficult to prove that I AM a citizen and have my passport made again. So I was wondering if there is any way I can apply for naturalization papers? I have my passport with me now, so would that make the process easier?
