 My husband wants to know, because at age 1 (june9th) i am taking all of the binkies away. Its been this long already, and i dont want him to freak when we take them away. He doesnt cry for them now, but thats how my dh puts him to sleep. and consoles him at night, i only nurse at night now, mostly to console him back to sleep. But when i told him that im taking them away because it will be easier now than later when he cries for it. my dh says...then how will i put him to sleep? lol give him some tips!

My husband just took it away and that was that. Our boys didnt wake in the middle of the night by then, but if yours does, just hold him a minute mybe, pat his back and youll have to deal with some crying. It's part of weaning. Ours both went pretty smoothly.

it will be easier to take it later when he has developed other coping skills.  one year olds still need a lot of oral comfort.  without it, or nursing, i would try rocking, patting, singing, laying down with him, etc... repetitive motion helps sooth them to sleep.

I would reccomend night nursing instead of the binky. That will make it a smoother transition.
