Ok, all you moms, young and old, I need some advice! We need to get Andrew off the 'paci.' He only gets it in the bed, and no other time. He's two and a half years old, and we think it's time to give it up for good. He falls asleep without his paci when he's in the car, so we know he can do it.
Brian and I think that we should just go cold-turkey, and cut it out completely. But, should we take it away at nap time, and give it to him at night? I think it'll only confuse him if he can't have it at nap but he can have it at night, which is why I think cold-turkey is the way to go.
On the other hand, I've heard family and friends tell me of how they cut the nipple part of the paci, so that it was "broken" and the child couldn't use it, and therefore the child made the decision to give it up. Does this really work?
Any and all advice would be appreciated!!
