What to do When Your Child Throws Their Lovie

One of the most common “stall tactics” babies use to delay their bedtime is the old, “Throw the toy out of the crib” game.

You know the one, I’m sure. Baby gets settled into the crib, Mom says night-night, then baby throws their favorite stuffie or blanket out of the crib. Mom picks it up, puts it back in the crib, and repeat. And although baby could happily play this game for hours on end, it quickly becomes repetitive and irritating for the parent.

In today’s video, I’ve got an easy-to-follow strategy to put a quick end to this game without causing your little one distress or unnecessary fussing. (And yes, it allows them to keep their lovie in the crib.) :)
