1. Include it in your daily activities
Tuck the lovey in between you during feedings, play peek-a-boo with it during playtime, include it in your bedtime routine, and rub the soft lovey against their skin so they get used to its feel and smell. Help them feel comfortable with the lovey while you are close by.
2. Give it Mommy’s familiar smell
It helps if the lovey smells like Mommy when you can’t physically be in the room. Wear the lovey next to your skin for a day to help give it Mom’s familiar smell.
3. Introduce it during nap and bedtime
Introduce the lovey into the crib by tucking it in their arms when they go to sleep and encouraging them to hold on to it. While they are lying in their crib, rub it against their face so they can feel its softness.
Your child is ultimately the one who is going to choose their lovey, but you can help influence that decision. Be consistent about helping them bond to it, and they should have a new beloved companion in just a few days.
