Time to kick the habit!

Baby has been a pacifier ( we call it paci) addict since he was born! That thing is ALWAYS attached to him and you are sorry if its not!

I know that babies develop strong attachments to objects between 12-15 months. He's almost 13 months old. It's time to kick this thing (well we are starting with daytime for now...this momma really likes her sleep!!) one. He has not been doing so well. Lots of whining! He has this automatic reaction to reach down, pick it up and put it in his mouth. Several times today he has reached down and it's not there! He gives me this little panicked look and I redirect him to something else to get his mind off it!

Like I said...naps and nighttime will still be indulged until he gets used to the daytime without it. Then I'll wean naps and finally nighttime. I'm really dreading that one! I've never had a "paci kid" before! No one else liked them....guess I'm making up for lost time huh?

There have been times I SOOO WISH that some of ours had been paci kids :) That would have been nice - at least some of the time!
