we're taking my daughter to build-a-bear tommorow so we can get rid of "pa".
she's two and doctor says it needs to go because it's effecting her teeth.
i plan on talking to her tonight and explaining that it's her last night with it, but we're going to put it in the bear so she can still carry it around and sleep with it and such.
any ideas on how to explain this to a toddler and keep their attention?
how did you get rid of your paci and how old was your kiddo?

We did the "Binky Fairy" thing at 4 for my DD... Binky Fairy came and took all her pacifiers (that we left in a basket) away to the new babies that needed them. She left a few new toys and a new stuffy. DD only used the Binky at night since she was 2, so she held onto those toys at night for a few weeks. Now, at 7 she doesn't even sleep with anything special, not stuffies or anything. You have to do what YOU feel is right for her. Have you tried cutting down to pacifier only at night first?? it can make the transition smoother. Good Luck Mama!! ;o)
