Is It Time To Get Rid Of The Paci?
IT'S TIP TUESDAY!
If having a paci helps your child to go to sleep I would not be in a rush to get rid of it unless they are waking in the night and you are having to replace it for them.
👶Dentists recommend getting rid of it between 2-4yrs to prevent tooth damage. 👶Litter the crib with about 10 pacifiers. 👶Talk to your child and show them how to replace it if it falls out. 👶Practice during the waking hours or right before a nap.
If you try the above and it does not work, it may be time to eliminate the paci all together. It's best to do it all at once.
Try to replace it with a lovey (stuffed animal or toy) something small that you can give your child in their crib.
