  • I'd let him keep the blanket if that helps he maybe getting a tooth in or something else that bothers him health wise?

  • Yes but he is on meds for them he tells me that his old sitter is in the closet and is going to get him

  • Open the closet and show him she is not in there. Maybe leave a light on in the closet. If the blanket is comforting let him have it as long as he wants for naptime/bedtime only.

  • Night light. He might be afraid of the dark. Also, did his old babysitter pass away? Show him the closet so he can see she's not there. You could also get one of those eye and hook latches for the door so you can lock it. If he thinks "babysitter" cant get out, maybe that would help.
