    Default Wish me and DD luck

    DD is very attached to her soother... She brought me one tonight and was waving bye bye to it.. So I said bye bye to it and snuck it behind my back. I put her to bed with out it... With no problem!!! Can it be this easy?? I really doubt it!! Do I hold back from giving it to her now? What if she's screaming tomorrow for it? Do I cave or do I stick to it?? She is almost 2 and I would love for it to be gone but I also love the sanity I get when she quites down with it...
    Wish me luck ladies... It may be a long night.

    Ooohh, good luck! We went through this too (we had a nuk fairy come though and exchange it for a special doll ) Honestly, it might have been tricky for about 3 nights (not waking up all night, just harder to settle in the beginning) and then she was fine. Fingers crossed!

    Thanks!! My DD is almost 2 but not talking or really understanding what I'm saying yet (I think she has ear issues like me and her brother but thats a whole different thread.lol) so its hard to explain or “trick“ her. I did let her pick a special toy to take to bed with her though..

    We took dd#1 away when she was about 18 months old. DH decided he was tired of her waking up in the night and not being able to find it (it would fall out of the crib). I was not happy at first since she only had it for sleep and I was the one who now had to get her to sleep without it, but after about a week of takign a while to get to sleep she was fine and has never looked back, though I did catch her putting the baby's soother in her mouth but just for fun I think.

    Good luck. We got rid of DS1's just before he was 2. It was hard the first night and for 2 days just at nap time, but its worth the bit of work in the end. Just know that if she does make a fuss about it, it won't be forever!

    We took my dd's soother to the baby room at her daycare and gave it to the baby's. She was 3, but only used it for naptime. Thank goodness its gone.

    That is great she said bye bye to it. She must be ready soon. Since she wanted it for her nap today, maybe try to just start with bedtime and then eventually naptime. Good luck.
    My ds still has his for his nap and sleeping. It seems to be a comfort, habit thing. When he is at my mom's or daycare he is fine and falls asleep without it. We tried to wean him from it for naps and he gave us a really hard time. He asks for his “yucky soother“. DH calls it that, but it's not working. I'm not trying to wean him now. I figure he only has it for maybe 45-60mins/day. And he is still a very good sleeper- I don't want to mess with that.

    I'd stick to your guns. I agree with pp that after a couple of days it will all be over.
