I think it is time to try to get DS attached to a comforting object (besides me ). He doesn't self settle when he wakes, which is often. This helped DD 1 although she was a little older as she had...and still has...a favorite blanket. (DD 2 never attached to any one thing.) He is a little young for a blanket, but I am having a hard time coming up with l lovey ideas. What do your kiddos use for comforting, snuggly items?
