These are B’s pacis.
He loves these things, but if you look closely you can see that the very tips of the pacifiers are gone.
I wanted to get rid of B’s pacifiers by two, and he will be two at the end of the month, so….
Dan made the executive decision that Saturday was the day to start weaning B off of the pacifier.
We are doing the same thing that we did with D3- snipping the ends of the pacis little by little until he gives them up. One snip with D3 and he said they were broken and that was that.
Not so with B.
There have been many tears shed (and not all of them from the baby). He is absolutely furious with his broken pacis- he screams his head off at them.
I think things may be looking up, but I’m not sure nap time will ever be the same. He only asked for a paci once today at nap, so I gave him his broken paci and he threw it and proceeded to have a little party in his crib for a long time before taking a one hour nap. He’s usually a three hour napper.
We all shall survive this, right?
