Lovey Love: Helpful Solutions to Problems with Loveys

Big brother wants to share Teddy.

It's important to respect your toddler's attachment to his lovey, so you'll likely have to step in and referee any sibling conflicts, says Dr. Brenner. He recommends telling your older child to politely ask his little brother first if he wants to share the toy. If your younger child refuses (or just seems reluctant), don't push it. Instead, explain to his sibling, "Jacob has said he doesn't want to share it now. Maybe later."
