Bye Bye Paci!

Last month I decided it was time to say Bye Bye to our pacifiers...I had been told by our pedi that she didn't see a problem but wanted us to kick the habit by two...we were getting closer and closer to 2 and I knew I had to just drop it cold turkey. That is always the way we do things around here and it just works for us! But let me tell you I was dreading this one! I was going to take them away by the time they were one but you can see how well that went.

We liked Pacifiers! Towards the end they took any kind!

We decided to cut the nipples off two paci's and handed one to each girl. They are really big into saying uh oh...So we made a big deal about them being broken and needed to go into the trash. They both threw them into the trash by themselves (I think that helped) and we were done with them. That night was ROUGH, Madelyn took it particularly hard. She was the most attached for sure, I think Kinley was on her way to giving them up herself. It was hard for a few days but even still SOOO much easier than either one of us thought!

I am DREADING that day! I know it needs to be done, but they just love their pacis so much! I have been working up this plan in my head and it looks very similar to what you did. I am glad to hear it went OK. We'll see....
