Getting rid of the Binky... Advice Appreciated!
I desperately need to get my toddler (2 1/2) off his binkies. I've been wanting to do it for a long time, but we've had a couple big moves in the last year and I've just not been up to the task I guess. He is extremely dependent on them at naptime and bedtime... Refuses to go to sleep unless he has TWO, one for his mouth and one to hold/twirl around in his hands. He is not allowed to have them at all during the day though (I have to keep them on top of the fridge during that time).
I'm pregnant with our 4th, and just want this to be over and done well before baby comes (due in July). After the binky goes, then I have to work on keeping him asleep and in his own bed all night! I think it will be easier once he's not waking up freaking out over not being able to find one or both of his binkies lol (which he does almost every night at some point... it's a little ridiculous).
Anyway... advice would be great! I've never had this problem with my other kids... they all gave up binkies early and easily. This boy's a little more challenging ;)
