The Paci is DEAD.....NO resurrections this time

Just want to start this post off with asking for no judgement okay?!?! Or you can judge just keep it to yourself because I don't wanna hear it;-)

Charli is 3 years and 4 months old and yes she has still been taking a Paci at bedtime and nap time. I know! I KNOW!! But as of 2 weeks ago the Paci died and will not be back!! That's a fact Jack!  The first week was well pretty much H-E- double hockey sticks. The first night she cried and cried and sobbed for over an hour and it completely broke my heart:-( The next night was around 45 mins and it got less and less after that til she now just goes to bed without it!  Success!!!!  It was really upsetting to see her so heartbroken.  It was like she was mourning her Paci!  I'm not talking about fit throwing crying but the real I'm sad kind of crying:-( It may sound silly but it was kinda sad to me too because it was the last thing that resembled "baby" for Charli!

A wise friend who had kids before me told me to get rid of it around 9 mos so that they wouldn't get attached but of course I didn't listen!  I was kicking myself in the rear for sure and if your reading this you are my witness that Addy Cole will NOT have a Paci past 9 mos:-).


  1. You did great! Breaking habits our kids develop is so hard....we're trying to stop Farrah from sucking her thumb. I almost wish I had a paci because I could throw that away, I can't throw her thumb away.

    1. Thanks Jennifer!! Good luck with the thumb!! It's so hard but I know it's better in the long run!
