Cannot answer that one since I don't have any kids LOL :)
Our daughter was over 2 before she let go of her binkie.
Sorry I can't help here. I honestly don't remember with my boys. I don't believe either of them took to it that much.Happy Aloha Friday!
I had three children to get off the pacifier. What I did was talk to them about the pacifier and how they are older now and need to give it up. then I posed a question "what would it take for you to give it up?". Took them to the store and when they said "I want" I said "You have to say good bye to the Passie" once agreed on they had to throw it in the trash and I took the trash out! doing this on the trash day is the best time. They said good bye to it and the toy/ item they wanted was given to them. I didn't have too many nights of passie withdrawal. we made it through and I kept them busy.here is my Aloha Friday Link
Only my oldest took a paci and it was a tough one to loose. She was probably over two as well!
We never gave our younger three kids a pacifier so it wasn't an issue. My oldest daughter we just threw them away and she stopped wanting them soon after. Happy Friday!
My oldest we took it away when he was 3 and it was tough. We took his at the same time we took our middle childs. The binky fairy wanted them back so we attached them to balloons and sent them on their way. It took the oldest a week or so to get over it. Our middle child hardly noticed. Our 18 mos old still has his and seems to be quite attached. I think I am just going to start weaning him for only having it at naps - or just take it completely, not sure yet. Goodluck!
My girls never use pacifier. Sorry I can't help.Have a nice weekend.Stopping from An Island Life
Our last baby never got one. The last one we just waited for him to go to sleep and took them all away. He quickly forgot about them. I think he was about 9 months.
We don't have kids yet.
We only let our first one have it at night after he turned 2 and then a few months before his 3rd birthday we made it his new years resolution and he never even missed it. My 2nd child we cut him off after all of our paci stash was lost. He was just over 2. My 3rd child is a thumb sucker so I'm not looking forward to breaking this habit when that time comes.
Neither of my kids took the paci. However my daughter took to her thumbe and I would have been very glad if she had taken to the paci as we could ship it to grandma and do all sorts of things, however you cannot get rid od the thumb.It's probably just a comfort thing for now. But maybe you could try engaging in singing and getitng your baby to talk to you or repeat after you etc then it will be hard for hte to keep her paci in all the time.
We started by limiting the paci to only nap time and bed time. It is hard, but if you just give it a few days, they get over it.
my girl twin is my only child to ever take her paci(we call it her Maggie)she is 17 months and still takes it but only at naptime and nightime unless a major meltdown is going on.I have a friend who followed a program that was really easy and eased them off of it!I will probably try that and hopefully before she is two
I think my son wasn't even 2 and my hubby took it away cold turkey. My daughter was 2 1/2 and she gave it up on her own.
