Today is the day. It is the day I force my son to quit the pacifier aka "binky" cold turkey.

His last tooth (besides his 2 year molars) has come through this week so his teething days are pretty much over.  Now he just uses the binky as pure addiction and I am sick and tired of chasing it around the house.

I have put all the binkies up and he has been crying all day for one.  I feel bad but will feel worse if I have increased dental work and bill sin the future because he sucked on it too long.  I refuse to be one of those parents that has a toddler walking around with a huge binky in his mouth.  He will be 16 months in a few eeks and he has his teeth so now he can be off the binky well before 2 years old.

I will have to put up with a fussy baby for a few days but it would not take long to break the habit.  It may just take a few sleepless nights, but for those that have read my blog in the past, what's the difference, he is not a good sleeper anyway, so I am out nothing!

I will keep you updated on the status and how many days it takes him to not "crave" the binky! For my husband and I, getting rid of them will be wonderful! They are a pain in the butt!

This face will be no more


This is the face I want to see,  binky free, it is so cute!

Mt son used that exact same pacifier brand. He gave it up after 6 months. Unfortunately, the bottle took much longer, Your son is adorable!

It is cute. I'm glad my son never needed a binky...he never liked them.....never even sucked his thumb...but he did use me for awhile for comfort but that ended at the age of One. Instead I have to deal with him crawling out of his crib at naptime...so now what do I do? Just let him sleep where he drops? hmmmm
