I also use a comforter/ blanket teddy thing with my dd and a grobag. The comforter really helps her get to sleep as she plays with it while self settling and rubs her face in to it when she is tired. She is usually always holding it in some way when she falls asleep. I think it helped her to have something to do with her hands too once she was unwrapped.

While I was sleep training my DS I would just keep placing the comforter back in his arms or hands without making too much eye contact and reinforcing him to use his blanky as comfort, it took just a few days for him to really attach it and I slowly introduced a few more into his cot so if one goes missing, has to be washed or if he can't find one in the night there is always another one there that he is happy to grab on to. When you go in to comfort him I would get the comforter and sssshh / pat while stroking his face with it then get him to cuddle it, try and get your scent on it first too, that always helps.
