My son is 15 months old and is in love with his binky. I don't know if it because he was broke of the bottle at 6 months or if he just truly loves it. He does have a security blanket, well actually a ton of them, we call it his "fuzzy." He loves his fuzzy but he knows when he gets it the binky should come with. I tried to break the binky once and he cried from noon one day until 8 pm the next night when I finally broke and gave in! I couldn't take it anymore. I have tried to cut the tip and that didn't work. I don't know what else to do, because I see it is pushing his teeth and I don't want him to have bad teeth. Any suggestions on how you did it? I feel like this is an endless battle!
Oh yea and to top it all off, when I did try to break it the first time my neighbors kept telling me how they heard him crying (we live in a condo, so we have a ton of neighbors in our building.) It's like do I break the binky or please my neighbors! I hate hearing them talk about it, he's a child what more can I do!
