when & how to take paciy from 2yrold
Throw them all away and go cold turkey.
Quoting bubbbaNbabygirl:just throw them in the garbage :) it might take a couple days, but he'll get over it!
My son was 15 months and used binky and thumb. He used left thumb to suck on and right to hold onto back of his hair. One day he got a cold. he got frustrated about not being able to breath and suck at the same time. We cut all his hair off so he wouldn't have anything to hold onto. He quit on his own and never did it again.
PS Summer in California desert that year was really hot so cut hair off so he could be cooler. He didn't like the wind blowing it anyways.
I am not sure! My daughter had to give her pacy up before she was a year old. One night she threw it out of the crib and I could not find it so I told her that that was it, no more pacy. I let her cry herself to sleep that night and the next night she was upset for a few minutes and was out, and the night after she fell asleep soon after I put her down without a fuss. A week later when I cleaned her room I actually found the pacy and then I promptly tossed it in the trash. It was not as hard as I thought it was going to be.
My two daughters were very attached to their pacifiers, and it was starting to affect their teeth... so, we told them that they were big girls now, and that it was time to give the pacifiers to some babies that needed them. We drove to the hospital, and a friend of ours went in and spoke to the very nice lady at the desk and explained what we wanted to do. Then, the girls went in and told the ladies that they wanted to give the pacifiers to the babies. They took them, thanked the girls, and then we went and got a special big girl toy from the dollar store. They only ever asked for them once after that, and we just reminded them that the babies had them now.
A few months ago, we found one under a piece of furniture, and big girl wanted to take it to the hospital!
