Soothing techniques after binky weaning... *Update*
My 3yo dd is still super attached to the binky. She has oral processing difficulties, which is why she still has it. She is still a biter and seems like she gets overwhelmed easily in groups or busy places. The binky seems to help in these situations. We are on day two of binky weaning and by tomorrow, we will gather them up and put them on the porch so they can get "recycled".
Any suggestions on how to help her transition and learn to self soothe without the binky?
Well, she kinda self weaned on her own, really. She hasn't used it all day and when she asked for it, we told her it was gone. Didn't have that meltdown that I was expecting! Since then, she will only ask about it 1-2x a day, but will get over it quickly! lol
Because of this, though, her biting has increased! Ugh! She bit her brother 3x this week and another poor kid at church yesterday. I have ordered the chew tube, to see if will help!
