We keep several friends in Zeke's crib, to keep him company during naps and in the night. He sleeps with the Dinosaur,Snowman, Poohbear, Smurf and Piggy. Of these, Poohbear is the most loved and Piggy is frequently pushed into a corner and forgotten.
Somedays Zeke has trouble falling asleep. His communication is limited, so he tells me how upset he is by throwing everything out of his crib, including the binkies. See below:
I've told him repeatedly that this is counterproductive - he has even more trouble falling asleep when the binkies and Poohbear are out of reach - but he persists. The new fear is that one day he'll decide to go after them.
