Wordless Wednesday



Okay, I know it's supposed to be WORDLESS Wednesday, but I just need to get this out... and maybe ask for advice??
I KNOW I need to take her nuk! She turned two in January... that's too old to still have a pacifier, right?! But she simply WON'T go to bed without it and I'm sorry, but this momma needs her sleep, LOL! I was a real hard ass of a mom when it comes to taking their bottles, the day my babies turned one, they all gave up their bottles (not that I gave them a choice), but I just can't seem to make myself take her nuk for good. Maybe it's because she's the baby? And she's my LAST baby? I don't know... but HELP! Any advice??

  1. I had the same problem! Kennedy would probably still have hers if she hadn't thrown it down the vent in our house and I couldn't get it out...yes I tried to get it out because we had the same problem--she just wouldn't go to sleep without it! It took a few nights for her to get over it, but it was worth all the screaming and crying because now she is talking more than ever!

  2. I had the same problem with my daughter. I tried to take it from her but the endless screaming was far to much for my heart (or ears) to bear. I hit the internet and found a few moms who recommended cutting the tip of the pacifier off. This way they are not getting the same sanctification from it and they end up giving it up on there own. I was doubtful this would work...but my daughter handed hers to me, asked me to fix it. I told her it was broken and mommy could not fix it. She threw it in the trash on her own. Don't know if this will work for you...but I found it a lot less traumatic than forcing the issue.

  3. With my first one i cut the tip off but had another hidden just in case but it worked, with my second one i told her that when santa came she had to give it up so we hung it on the tree for santa on christmas eve and that worked with my last one i just took it and he sucks his finger but only when he's sleepy or around strangers

  6. I have both my girls have soothers until they were two.
    The trick that worked with my girls was when we went on a vacation. I took only one soother and asked kept them pretty busy the whole day. With my elder one, she threw it in the garbage bin herself. The younger one was a tough cookie for a night. But then she eventually forgot it within 3 days.

  7. Sorry I dont have advice, none of my kids ever took a pacifier, I just skirted the whole issue. I do know everything happens in its own time, she'll let it go.

  8. Depends who you ask if she is to old ;O) I never gave them to my kids but my friend went to build a bear and put it inside a bear :O) her daughter thought it was great and comforting without messing up her teeth.

  9. With my daughter (she's 5 next month), I cut the tips of her pacis on her first bday. She threw hers away, and never looked back. I'm going to have a hard time with my son (he's 1 next month), 'cause he sucks his thumb. I can't snip the tip of that and throw it out :(
    Sorry I don't have more ideas than the above, but clipping the tips seems to work for a few of us, anyway :)
    Good luck!
