Easy Pacifier Tips for Every Parent

Saying Goodbye to the Pacifier

Saying Goodbye to the Pacifier

There comes a time to wean your child from their pacifier regardless of when they start to take it. For some babies, this can be very easy, especially if they are old enough to understand and only take it at bedtime.

But for those who may have a harder time, you may need to wean a bit more gradually. Start by cutting back use to just sleep times, eventually making it just for bed at night. Once your child is used to not getting it often, you can start cutting back on night time use too.

Some parents may choose to quit cold turkey, simply throwing all of the away so there is no temptation to give it to your child. It may take a few days of crying (and screaming), but when they realize you no longer have any pacifiers around, they will get used to it.
