We are trying for the second day of no pacifier in our house.
Please, send me lots of prayers LOL! There has been a lot of crying going on here today. Which I expected but sort of hoped wouldn't happen.
Now yesterday, Little Man took no pacifier, but guess what? It was because he never asked for it. He played and was happy and never bothered by not having a pacifier. We were also out of the house all day and I thought to myself, hey, maybe the pacifier is just a habit he got into at home and probably he doesn't really need it. Granted, he did get it at bedtime last night - I didn't want to traumatize the boy! LOL!
So today he woke up and I took it away from him. And he did really good. And then about 90 minutes ago, he went to the cabinet where we keep them and asked for it (in his own little gibberish way). And I told him no. And I tried to take him outside and to play with the bus or to look at a book or something to get him to start crying. After about 30 minutes the fussing was over - for all of 15 minutes. And then he was very fussy again, crying for his paci, and then he found something. Right now, he is playing with his sister. It is lunchtime and we have had no paci yet today. I can not honestly say that if he spends much time this afternoon whining for it, that I won't crack and throw it his way.
Yes, I know, it's not very consistent is it? But really, he usually has it in his mouth almost all day long. Going a morning without it ... that's a BIG accomplishment for him. So maybe today we go half a day, and maybe next week he'll go a little longer and a little longer. Maybe? Or maybe he'll surprise me and forget about this afternoon! I can hope, can't I?
