I was so scared to take away my daughter’s pacifier. I think it was more traumatic for me then it was for her but we finally got rid of the pacifier once and for all!
My little girl was so attached to her pacifier that I knew it was going to be difficult to wean her off of it. I never wanted to give her a pacifier in the first place but she had a strong sucking instinct and it was the only thing that would soothe her. She had colic for about 5 months and if there was anything I could do to make her feel better, I was going to do it!
Since she was so attached, I knew that it was going to be difficult to take it away. I had to prepare myself mentally for the late nights that were going to happen. She would always sleep with her pacifier so I knew nights were going to be the worst.
