Ive read that placing an item of worn clothing in the viv will help him get used to me, does this work ?
Depends, the baby (with it essentially being a new toy, may either feel threatened, or may try to eat it, which depending on what it is, could cause impact (very unlikely)

Try leaving your hand in there for a few minutes with a sweet smelling fruit/veg, it may (or may not) lure him over to you.
(there are numerous care sheets which list which fruit/veg they can and cannot eat)

My baby seems to love sitting on my knee while I stroke under her beard. I've only had her a few weeks but it didn't take too long for her to realise I'm the one that brings here the big juicy locusts etc. :p

Good luck.
