So here’s my answer to that question.
Two of my three kids were paci users. For my oldest son, his was crack! We had to fan 6 around his head at night, he hid them around the house and we had extras packed away. When he was three, I decided that when we returned home from preschool, his paci would have moved away to live with a little boy because he had become a big boy. A few tears but it worked – pat mom on the back, I am so great, in tune with my kid, all is right in the world… Until, he started sucking his finger! I put up with that nasty, wrinkly finger for another two years before having our dentist fit him with a “cage” that prevented him from sucking his finger. Worked and he is now 11 with no paci or finger sucking.
My youngest, I finally just got fed up one day, no cute story just the paci was gone and that was that!
OK, TAG, YOU’RE IT!!
So while in carpool on Monday, get off your facebook feed and join the Matt & Ramona facebook chat and call 704-338-2071.

Bribery – I promised (and fulfilled) a trip to TCBY if my daughter could stay in her bed (and not come to ours!) for an entire week!
