Try also posting this on the parenting forum. Making a fuss about taking it away from him ( google a topc like Security BlankeT ) wil probably make him cling to these objects all the more desperately. Ignore them for the time being, and after a while, try a little distraction, to interest him in other objects. He may also see it as unfair that little brother gets bottles, while his are grabbed away from him. Mom's comments make a great deal of sense. And Nozi wisely reminds us of one reason for him to feel insecure --- he has a younger rival apparently stealing the exclusive attention he used to have all to himself, and is clinging to symbols of the good old days when he reigned supreme. And as she says, gradually enlist him as a Big Boy in helping care for the baby, and praise him for the more mature things he does, rather than fussing about these small regressions.
