I can't get my almost 3year old to leave his dummy and sippy cup. What worked for the twins is realy not working for him. Any advice?

The "Pacy Fairy" came and took my son's pacifiers several months ago and it worked like a charm. He colored on an envelope, put them all in it, put it by the front door before he went to bed, and then when he woke up, the pacy fairy had left him puzzles. It took him nearly an hour to go to bed that first night, because he kept wanting to check to see if the fairy had come, but after that night he was fine. The next day at nap time he said, "where are my... OH man! I gave them to the pacy fairy!" and that was that! He never cried and never asked for them again-- Problem solved!

I think "cold turkey" is the best. get rid of them, Rebekah has a great idea for the paci, but the sippy should just go. Does he ask for the sippy at night? If he does, its no different than a bottle. Not good for his teeth. Good Luck!
