I'm a new parent and I have a toddler who's just turned 2 years old. My little one has become very attached to certain toys, such as a stuffed animal, a blanket, and a small car. Whenever we go out, my toddler insists on bringing these toys along, and if we forget them, it can lead to a major meltdown.
I understand that having comfort objects is normal for toddlers, but as a parent, I'm worried about what would happen if one of these toys gets lost or broken. My child becomes so upset that it can be hard to console them.
I'm looking for advice on how to handle this situation. Is there a way I can encourage my toddler to let go of these toys or find a way to help them cope when the toys are lost or damaged? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
