getting rid of the pacifier
Post reply image

My daughter just turned 3 and she wont give up the pacifier. I have been told she will give it up when ready but her teeth have already started messing up. It sound harsh but I have tried hot sauce and she licks it off and still uses the pacifier. Open to all suggestions. I have even tried to hid it and she screams her head off.

When my boys were little, a pedatrician suggested the following: It was before their birthday's and she asked me if I planned on any type of party. I said yes. The doctor said for the next several weeks to tell the boys several times a day, everyday, party, balloons, cake, no more passey. I did this for weeks, they started telling me, party, balloons, cake, no more passey. On the evening after their party, they walked their passey to the garbage and threw it away. Only once did one of them ask for it back and I reminded him of the party and he said "no more passey"! I pulled their passeys from the trash and washed them and they are put away with their baby blankets now. My boys are now in college and I miss their "passey" days. Good Luck.

do it gradually v. cold turkey. start witj taking away after breakfast or brushing their teeth, but them have it for afternoon nap and bedtime. stick to your guns once you start, giving will confuse them and make the transition harder. even if the scream. remember they aren't in pain but really ticked off and screaming is their only way to express that.

It was hard getting my niece off the pacifier my sister tried many times. One day we were at the park and noticed a small squirrel My sister said you should give your pacifier to that baby squirrel and my niece did. When she wanted it after that we would remind her that the baby squirrel had it and she would smile and be fine. Maybe you can do something like that so she has a good memory of getting rid of it.

Wean her off of it - first during the day except for naps & bedtime. Then naps, and then finally at bedtime. She will cry and fuss at first but she will learn to go without it.

We started out by telling her that the Paci was going to go bye bye. She only used it at night to sleep. When we took it away she had a little trouble sleeping for a day or two then she got used to sleeping without it.
