One Week

Yesterday morning marked one week since Katie has had a pacifier. She's done so well without it, too. The first couple of days without her pacifier, she asked for it a few times a day and we would just tell her that the dentist said she couldn't have it anymore. Of course, she got a new baby doll for her birthday that came with its own pacifier. When she mentioned the baby doll's pacifier, I told her that the baby doll has a pacifier because it's a baby, but she's a big girl now so she doesn't have one anymore. And that was that.

The last time we tried to ween her from her pacifier, we decided to take it from her during the day, but let her have it for naps and bedtime. But then she got sick, and well, that was the end of that. This time, we decided to just quit the pacifier "cold turkey" and not give it to her at all. She must have been ready for the change because she didn't put up much of a fight about it, and now she doesn't ask about it at all.
