get rid of the pacifier

There’s one real winning moment from our week and it had everything to do with the dummy fairy. Those who follow Three Li’l Princesses via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter will know the dummy fairy was visiting here last night to take Holly’s dummies to give to other little babies who needed them more.

We used this strategy for Ella when she was the same age – 2.5 years – and it worked a treat. I’m happy to say, despite her sitting up in bed and reading until 9pm, there were no tears and she slept through the night.

Tucking her into bed tonight, she did ask “where’s my dummies?’’. A little “remember the dummy fairies gave them to the little babies’’ speech and she was fine with it.

I must say, it’s a huge relief. During the week I’ll share the process for getting Holly prepared for the dummy fairy – including writing the letter above – and how this time differed to getting rid of the pacifier with Ella.

What age was your child when you got rid of the pacifier?

Now, onto some other ways to win…

    I think both my boys were around 3 when they gave up dummies. We too had the dummy fairy who brought them a special toy to replace the dummy. A few broken nights, but they quickly adjusted.

    • Yes, it doesn’t take long, Dorothy. Holly was a little unsettled about midnight last night, but otherwise she’s been sleeping through. Thank goodness. That’s the one thing that always worries me most about them not having the dummy anymore. x

  2. My oldest son was the only one of my children with a dummy…. we went cold turkey when he turned 2. It was a bit cruel in hindsight 😉
