Wendy is 17 months old today, and I need your advice. Her pediatrician told us back at her one-year visit that it would be best if she is weaned off of the Binky by 18 months. By 18 months. At the time, it seemed like we had a long time to figure it out. But now? It's, um, NOW.
Wendy didn't even take a Binky until she was about seven months old. It quickly became indispensible. We can do without it during the day, but when it comes time for a nap or bedtime, the girl wants her Binky.
Have any of you successfully weaned from a pacifier? Do you have any suggestions? Anything at all? Please?
I've heard about giving the Binky to the "Binky Fairy," but Wendy just isn't at that stage yet -she wouldn't understand. I just don't know what steps to take, other than going cold turkey.
Any ideas? Please share...
