It may be a difficult week

It's time to ditch the bottle...


AND the binkie...


We've had several people tell us to cut the very tip of pacifier and Nate will just 'throw it out' on his own. Well we gathered all the binkies we could find and did just that. He seemed to think that they were a new toy, because he KEPT them and just chewed on them even more. And twice today he shows up with a new binkie that hasn't been snipped yet! Where the heck did he find them, anyway? He has been pretty whiney today, and acts like his life is so miserable. Any pointers? I'm just going to stick with it...I know that I'm not the first mom to go through this; I just know that it won't be much fun. :D

I had a friend who tried the same trick except she cut off a little more each day until there wasn't anything left to suck on. It worked for them. Good Luck!

We took away tanner's binkies three or four times. He wasn't the problem - we just kept buying more because we couldn't handle it!!! I agree with Vicky - try that. We ended up going cold turkey and never looked back! Except now he thinks Taylor's taste yummy....go figure.
