Jordan’s subtle approachOver the course of 2 weeks, Jordan created a subtle slit cut along the bottom of the pacifier, that made it so that the pacifier had intermittent suck and by the end of about two weeks of slowly making the slit along the bottom larger, the pacifier was still intact but there was absolutely no suck to it. So, she was sucking on a pacifier that was just kind of flat in her mouth. Until one morning she came in my room and said, “mama, I get rid of the night-night. I keep my lovie (her little doll she sleeps with too) and get rid of the night-night” So that night we did! We put her pacifier in a package and said we were sending the pacifier to a baby who needs it….because “only babies need night nights” She cried the first night, pretty dramatically at bed time, so after about 5 mins of the crying I went in to snuggle her. For the first time in her toddler life, she fell asleep next to me. I was grateful for the sweet snuggles and the next night she didn’t need any snuggles to sleep.
And that’s how we got rid of the pacifier with my daughter!Luckily, we are still getting in naps too. Sometimes it takes a little bribery but she’s taken them!!😄 If you have questions on this, drop them down below or email me directly! Sending loads of Love & Best Wishes!! You got this!!
