DD is almost 3. She has no comfort items except a "binky." She pretty much only uses it at home and generally at naps and bedtime, or any time she sees it she pops it in her mouth. If she's very tired and cranky, it's the only thing to calm her. I think she's getting too old and I hear all the comments from family about the same. Is she too old? What's the best way to take it away?

Pick a day and tell her that on that day the Binky Fairy is going to come and collect all of the binky nipples to give to the smaller children who need them. Since she's a big girl now, she can help the binky fairy out by giving her all of her binky nipples. When she's asleep, cut the nipples off. :) Next day, marvel with her at the great job the binky fairy did and get her a teddy bear or something special to play with and redirect her attention to. Best of luck to you mama!
