One thing we did do, and it had nothing to do with trying to get my son to sleep through the night, was this. I was home visiting my parents for a month. So I got him a big soft blanket that was just his....my niece who is a month younger was there a lot too. But only gave him this blanket when sleeping, so when on plane he had that blanket. Then once back in our own home had that same blanket at every nap and bedtime....and oddly enough, now when he wakes up he is in there playing peek a boo with that blanket or is holding it when he stands up to get out of the crib. Before we just use whatever blankets I grabbed from the drawer. It at least gave him some kind of familiarity and possibly some security.
