You may remember me talking about wanting to get rid of our daughter's pacifier last month. If not, you can read about it here. Kaelyn only had her pacifier at night time, but was still very attached to it. There were some major changes between potty training, moving to her big girl bed, and a new little brother...which put off the 'weaning' process until just recently. Being two years old, I knew it was time, but wasn't quite sure the best way to go about it. Thanks to many of you who commented with your experiences and thoughts on the issue, I quickly realized that 'cold turkey' was our best bet.
I am so glad that someone gave us the idea of the Build-A-Bear. I think it was a great way to make her a part of the whole process so she understood what was going on each step of the way. It allowed for us to take her bops cold turkey while still giving her the comfort of knowing that they're always with her, and best of all...she now has something special to take its place.
