No more paci!!!!!!!!! About 4 weeks ago I decided it was time for Paisley to part with her pacifier. She had it way longer than I wanted her to have it but, when I tried to take it away at 11 months like I did with Britt it she was devastated. I felt so bad, I let her have it again.
I was starting to have visions of her still with a paci at 4 years old and that scared me. She only took one at bed time and sometimes on car rides but I still thought she was old enough to do without it.
I started the process by cutting off the tip of the pacifier. After I cut it I took it in to Paisley to take her nap. She immediately threw it on the floor. I handed it back to her and she threw it again three more times. After that, I asked her if she wanted to throw it away since it was broken and she threw it in the trash herself. She laid down for a minute and then cried again. I reminded her that she threw it away because it was broken. She seemed ok with that. For the next several days she would cry a little but then go right to sleep. Now she goes to bed without crying.
I am so happy she is paci free. A little sad though about how fast she is growing up.
