Oops! I knew they were six months apart from the birthday and went the wrong direction!! W doesn't play with his Charlie every day. Some days he brings him into all sorts of games and then he'll ignore him for weeks.
This is going to sound dumb, but does the doll have a name? My son had another doll that he liked but used like a stuffed animal. He'd had him for months when one day I got tired of saying Charlie and the little baby---so we named the little baby. He instantly started acting like the little baby was a real baby/person. I hadn't wanted to name his dolls for him. I only named the first one because I was excited to have made it. But it made a huge difference in how he reacted to him. So I think until he gets the hang of naming things himself, I'm going to name his dolls.
