My little girl is a little over 2 and has always been a fan of the pacifier. So much that she constantly wants it. Honestly I feel like i missing something as a mom because I feel bad if I take it away. I mean we're down to only nap time and bed time and lets not forget when we're in the car...or she makes it a horrible car ride. I've tried cutting off the tips and telling her they are broke and she believed me but that only lasted for 4 days and I ended up giving it back because she wasn't sleeping well without it, she was crying for it all night in her sleep. I felt as though I was causing some kind if emotional stress and gave in. Im desperate because I won't this pacifier addiction out of my home. Do I just be mean and throw it out not caring about her feelings? Or am I unconsciously causing it by giving it back every time? Her dad doesn't really help the situation for he likes her having it, it makes him still think of her as a baby I think. ..any suggestions would be great. . Thanks!
