More practical tips on breaking away from the pacifier

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 29-01-2007

On the appointed day, collect all the pacifiers, and have
your children go with you as you “give away” the pacifiers to a baby. You can use a friend’s new
baby, a baby from church or preschool — it doesn’t matter, as long as they can see that there
really is a small baby. Then have your children leave the pacifiers in a little bag with the baby.

 

You should then go to get some predetermined “reward” (a new older kid toy, a
special outfit, etc.). Most two or three year olds will go along with all of this pretty well. Kids
under two might have some difficulty actually giving their pacifiers to a baby, in which case you
might just want to plan on throwing them out.
