Could it be that both of my kids gave up pacifiers by 4 months? Harrison didn’t use his much after 4 months that I can remember and I haven’t used one in about a week with Sterling. Is there a trick you ask? I don’t give it to them all the time. And I stop packing them when we go out and just don’t need them.
My next statement is sure to offend some: I don’t understand how there are 2+ year-olds walking around ALL THE TIME with pacifiers. Are you kidding me? I understand at night time. I get that. If they need it to get to sleep, then fine. BUT, I really think if you just suck it up for a few days or maybe even weeks of them crying themselves to sleep at night you can get rid of it. I’m sure there are some of you just seething at my comments, but I don’t understand it. I also don’t understand bottles much past 1 either, but to each their own, I guess. I just don’t understand why. I just can’t imagine bottles and/or pacifiers are good for their teeth past a certain age.
Anyway, now that you all hate me — here is why I posted: Can I be lucky enough that both of my kids gave this up at 4 months?
I HOPE SO!
