security/comfort item for baby

I have a 6.5 week old. Sometimes when she is upset she acts like she wants something that is missing like security item. When me and my sister were baby's/toddlers we had security items. Mine was receiving blankets, it didn't matter which one but I had to have a receiving blanket. My sister's was a hand towel, again it didn't matter which one but she had to have one. I don't really remember the comforting feeling but seeing how my sister was with her towel makes me want my daughter to have an item. When my sister had her towel she was so happy and content.

How can I get my daughter attached to a comforting item.

She did have a wubba-nub (a pacifier with a small stuffed animal attached) which she likes but it doesn't always soothe her. It did most of the time but sometimes she is so upset she pushes it out her way. Students when she sucking on it she will hold its legs or arms.

When she is super content, introduce an item to her. After a while, she will associate it with being relaxed and happy and will be comforted by it's presence.

 Is this your first? 

It doesn't matter, just asking.  My oldest never had a comfort item.  My younget it is her thumb.  That was a natural habit though.

My kids loved being nursed a lot.  Food, comfort, tired,etc.  We are not big on artificial things though.  My oldest has a blue dog that he naturally took up though.

Good idea!! Thank you!

I'm not sure what I should offer her.
A stuffed animal, blanket, towel (like my sister) taggie blanket.

 I don't know. So far all three of my kids did not use a comfort item.

I'm hoping to find her something soon, because I'm going back to work in 2 weeks and I want her to have something from home to help her through the days
