How can I get rid of my daughter's pacie?

She is 2 now and I am wanting her to get rid of it. She has them every where! My parents keep buying them because they give her whatever she wants.

  • Invite the paci fairy to visit and send them off to the little babies that need them. :-) Don't give them to her and tell you parents to spend their money elsewhere.

  • I have heard if you make a tiny hole it will not be the same comfort so then they'll just toss it to the side then make another slightly bigger hole as time goes by and go from there. GL

  • My friend cut the nipple off of them when her son wasn't looking. When he would ask what happened, she would tell him they were broken and needed to be thrown away. Once they were all "broken" he stopped asking for them.

  • At 2 you just flat out take it. You throw them all away. Tell her she's a big girl and doesn't need a baby pacifier any more. Tell your parents she's 2 and no longer a baby and doesn't need a paci. If they persist, ask them if they want to pay for her braces.

    The trick mentioned above about cutting them and calling them broken has worked well for a few moms I've known.

  • start by not letting her have it during the day, And then somewhere along the line she'll stop using it at night..

  • I watched my friend teke her sons away. Shed took em all away but one and only let him have that one for a week. Then every 2 days she clipped a peice off of it with scissors. After the 3rd clip it wasnt the same and he didnt want it anymore. I like the binkie fairy idea too. Very cute. Im a mean mommy. I starteg giving my son a lovey object at 4 months to get attatched to, and by 5 months he just had the paci at night. And at 6.5 months i took it away. He didnt seem to mind. He just cuddles his lovey. He never sucked his thumb afterwards and doesnt have to have the lovey to sleep so it worked well for me!
