Please! Any one have any suggestions on how to keep my daughters pacifier in her crib at night. I'd hate to break out the bumpers again, but that's the only thing I can think of that would stop it from falling. We must get up at least 2 times a night...sometimes as many as 4 times just to get her pacifier that’s dropped on the floor. She will not go back to sleep without it. She's not completely dependant on the pacifier, she rarely has it during the day, just nap and night time. Should we just try to get ride of the pacifier all together? She's 20 months.

Quoting Sara:

I wish I knew the name of the product. A child that I babysit regularly had a pacifier attached to a stuffed animal. She carried it everywhere. It would seem like it would be less likely to fall out of a crib.

To get rid of a pacifier, this is what my sis-in-law did (and I'm trying it after the holidays). She cut the tip off the pacifier. Each week she cut another small sliver off until it was gone. It was a gentle way to wean her daughter off. She was about your daughter's age at the time.


this is a really good idea!!

Just get rid of it. We got rid of my son's at 16 months. The sooner the better and the less say they have over it!!!

I attach my daughter's pacifer to her so she just puts it back in herself. You can get the clips at babies r us or target.


Just to let you know, the packaging of these things usually state that a child should never be left alone while wearing one of these.

well, Maybe it's time to say good by to the binky. My babys doctor said to get her off the binky if you wnat she teeth to come in straight but didn't have any problems with that cause she was never a big fan of the nuk in the first play we took it away and she never cryed for it once. almost 2 years old I think it's time to find her a new comfort object.
