We still have yet to get the pictures and video from Lew's holiday party so I will have to post on that when we get them.
But today I want to talk about the binky. Or as Will likes to call it his "B".
My niece had hers until she was almost 3! I do not want to see Will walking around sucking on a binky at that age for sure! The bottle was easy to get rid of because he liked his sippy cup so much and ditched the bottle at 7 months. I thought then, I will have no problem getting rid of the binky. But now Will is attached to this thing. We have tried a couple things. Only having it at nap and bedtime. We will even hide the binkys but somehow Will will find them!
Enter bad Mommy. I read in a parenting magazine that you can go cold turkey or cut a little hole in the binkys so that he will not want to suck anymore. Well I decided that I would cut holes in the binkys. It started to work and then we went to Chicago and my poor Will's ears hurt so bad because he could not suck on the un-suckable binkys. I felt so bad! So when we got to Chicago I went out and bought him some binkys. Now we are starting over again.
We are down to two binkys and heaven forbid we lose them, I feel like we might have a crisis on our hands. I would rather go cold turkey but I feel horrible doing that to Will knowing it does give him comfort when he goes to bed. What do you think? Do you have any tricks you could share? Thanks!
