No pie - what I have learned

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.
