Tips for Getting your Child Off the Paci :) hahahaha <—- as if we know :)

How to get your child off of the pacifier:

Option 1:  Take child to Build-A-Bear and have child put pacifiers in the bear/puppy as child’s new “comfort”.

Option 2:  Cut tips off of pacifiers so they lose appeal.

Option 3:  “Cold turkey”. Child can only have pacifier at nighttime or nap time and then wean off.

Option 4:  Read Paci Fairy to child and convince child he/she will get a super cool toy when the Paci Fairy comes to get pacifier

Option 5:  Wait until child indicates he/she is ready to be a “big boy” or “big girl”, take child to celebrate new decision by getting her ears pierced.  Make a Build-A-Bear and “pay” with pacifiers. Have daddy make a big deal about it by taking her for a spin in his hiiiiiiiighly over-rated 12-year old Jeep in a BOOSTER seat and pick her up a big girl doll on the way home!

Option 6:  Tell her you love her, throw them away, suck it up and brace yourself for some tears.

We are day 4…paci free!  YAY Ally!! Mommy and Daddy are very proud of our Big Girl!!

    Hahahahaha…very funny! So glad that you are finally at the place where you can laugh about this! I remember how painful that process was! Yeah Ally and mom and dad…you are all very brave. I think Day 5 calls for cake and ice cream! 🙂 (P.S. I’ll call you for encouragement when my Ali is ready for her final day!) :)Heidi
