We are now on week two of no pacifier. No surprise it has had it's ups and downs. My daughter has only asked for her pacifier about four times which I think is very good, and it has been when she was tired or bored. I can say that she will be ready by the winter for moving out of the crib and into a bed, I think this has pushed her into the next phase. What has come out from this situation is no naps and sleeping through the night. By sleeping through the night I mean not waking up looking for her pacifier. What was in the beginning at least 45 minutes of crying is maybe about 5-10 minutes at the most, and trying to get me to come in and put her blanket on her since she purposely tosses it off. What a smart cookie! I am hoping that this will also pass. The new bed sheets were a big hit since she was the one to choose for her bed, and keeping her routine the same helped. Would I do another pacifier if I had another child? As much as I would like to say no, probably yes. I think it would be harder with a thumb than with a material item and I would do it earlier.
