First night without a paci ......................................................

So I took it out of her mouth this morning as I got her out of bed and didnt say a word . At nap time she asked for it and it took 2 hours to get her to go to sleep but not much crying . I just kept telling her that it went bye bye and that she was a big girl now and didnt need it anymore. Now its bed time . All night I am dreading putting her to bed . To my surprise she layed down gave me a kiss and said" night mommy" and not one tear . She didnt even ask for it . I am not this lucky !!!!!! But if I can do this maybe I will get her potty trained after all !!!!

  • When my oldest was 2, we "lost" his paci one night. He had one terrible time getting to sleep, but after that he never asked for it again!
