Bye Bye to Binky

My son is almost 18 months, and I am really thinking about when I want to get rid of his Binky. I have no clue where to begin and I am dreading every minute of the process. He is pretty dependent on it and needs it to fall asleep at naps and bedtime. I was curious when everyone else started this process and how they did it. Help Please!!

We are just starting the process of getting rid of the binky. I have decided to only let him have it at nap time and bedtime. When he wakes up we just leave the binky in his crib. He was excited to go to bed tonight because he got to have his binky! He is also almost 18 months. Another way to get rid of it all together is to cut a hole in the tip of it so it's "icky" to them and maybe he won't want it anymore. Just be careful he doesn't start biting pieces off as it could cause a choking hazard. Hope this helps! :-)

We're having the same problem but with the bottle. He will not get rid of it. I actually thought the binky would be our big problem, but he decided on his own overnight that he was done with it. When he loses them you could just stop finding them (or find them and hide them) then tell him they're 'all gone'. Oliver get's what all gone means so I use that on him a lot...the only thing it's not working for is the bottles, so good luck!!
