The time is nearing when I am going to have to get rid of Cadens suckies. Its just another one of those things that to me, needs to happen before a child is 2. Along with sleeping in a bed and potty training. But, I need your help. How did you get rid of your childrens suckies? Is there a quick, less painful way of doing it? I've got a little head start because when Caden was around 1, I started allowing him to have the suckies for nap time and bed time only. Other than that, they sit on a shelf in his room, waiting for the next 'sleep' period to come around. He's also very attached to it. He gets really excited about being able to have his suckie for nap time and bed time. It gets him to his bed without problem. On the other hand, I've also shot myself in the foot. You see, Caden was never really attached to a blanket or stuffed animal. He needs to have a second suckie, that he holds in his hand. So not only am I getting rid of the one in his mouth, I'm also taking away his comfort item. Ahhhhh!!!! Please, I'll take any advice I can.
