when did you take the passy away from your child?

Colin is two and I know that I have too! He's addicted!

  • Sometime before he turned two I just had him stand in front of the trash can and told him to go ahead and throw it away and wave bye bye, which he actually did without complaint (I was surprised, too), and seemed to move on like he didn't even mind it. He didn't even seem to think about it after that. That was the end of it, thankfully.

    Super Nanny, from what I've seen, has them round up their paci's - she tells them that the paci fairy is coming and needs pacis for "the babies" (of the world, I guess), and then the next day there's a big kid present for them (kind of like the tooth fairy, but instead of money). I thought that was cute when I saw it. :)

  • my daughter just gave things up
    she is 14 months now
    at 6 mos she stopped accepting the passy
    at 12 mos she stopped taking the bottle
    it's very interesting, she is very decisive lol

  • At 1 we limited it to the crib, by 2 it was gone. My 1st child just "lost" his paci one day, he cried that night but never asked for it again. My 4th gave it up completely on his own - we had a new baby and he kept trying to shove his paci in her mouth! so we just went with that it's now Becca's paci. He's never asked for it back.

  • I'd explain hes a big boy now and big boys dont need pacifiers they are for babies, mine only took one at night and gave it up at probably 8 months.
