My son is almost 2 1/2 years old. He still takes a paci sometimes(please do not lecture me on thats bad:))-mainly tired or anxious..Anyways we almost had it gone,but then..
we had little brother that came 4 months ago. Now he likes it.
They use the same pacis-how can I stop my son from using them,but still give them to the baby?
Totally confused?

  • Its best to wait intil the baby is not reliant on his and possibly wean him early and together. I never did the paci thing but the bottle was difficult to break from my oldest. Her sis came along before I fully weaned her and she reverted. I weaned the baby closer to 10 months while my oldest was almost 2. I weaned my second before the twins came so not bottle snatching!!! Phew.

  • if he's 2 1/2, he should know the meaning of no. you just really have to stay strong with him

  • Give him a special "big boy" treat in place of using the paci, something that the baby can't have.

  • Show him how 'babyish' it is to have a pci. Maybe go through all of the things that the baby can't do (walk, talk, etc) and explain the differences that come with age and maturity. Maybe he'll get it- maybe he won't. Just be stern. Good Luck!
