My son just turned three. We let him know before hand before he turned three we were going to take it away from him. He asked for it a couple times after but he never had a problem after.
He's 29 months old and we got rid of the last one about 3 weeks ago. He dropped it in the toilet and the garbage man had to take it. It's been really tough for him since he only used it for sleeping. Teethers worked the frist few nights, but it's just such a chore to get him in bed now. He came off the bottle and potty trained within days, but this has been our biggest challange.
Was talking to my pedi this morning and she recommended sending him to bed with a few ounces of water in a sippy cup to give him something to mouth on without forming a bad habit.
my oldest was 4 months he just didnt want it.....middle son was 10 months and my daughter almost 3 months dont really use anymore
13 months. I would have taken it sooner but was told to wait until after I weaned him at 12 months. In the future I plan on taking it away even sooner as I do not plan on weaning so early again. I just took it away. Those first few nights were rough and we spent a lot of time in the rocking chair, but the best way is to just take it away. I made sure ds always had his security blanket, too.
