I know this is something that even "normal" children do, let alone those with developmental delays.

This last week or so Daniel has exhibited some "baby behaviours", as if he is trying to be like Michaela, or make sure he isn't replaced in our affections or given less attention.

The first thing he did was deliberately wet the bed because he wanted to be changed. We told him we understood why he'd done it but it was naughty and he was not to do it again. We do give him plenty of attention and tell him we love him every day as well.

He has also been doing some baby talk and we had to mention this to his LSA at school in case he did it there. He now has taken to lying on Michaela's changing mat when he needs the eczema on his legs creaming because it's similar to her getting her thrush cream on her bottom.

Who else has dealt with this in a developmentally delayed child and has any tips for dealing with it??

Autumn did this! We just WAY over did it. We would pick her up and swoop her around and call her our big baby, and treat her like a little baby, for a play period. Then back to being a big kid. She just wanted to pretend and see what it was like. I bet if you over fed into it he would tire of it quickly.
