The Great Debinkining

New post up at The Bump!

When Jack was born, I took the advice of my wiser and more experienced older sisters and went right ahead and gave him a pacifier so I could get twenty minutes of solo sleep, nipple confusion be damned. And boy howdy, that bink was a godsend at times. I used to feel sympathy for one of my sisters whose kids never took a pacifier because the bink was a large part of the reason he slept through the night when he did. “I’ll take it away when it becomes a problem,” I thought.

We are to the bedtime/nap and church only period. I so want her to be done with the pacifier because I am tired of her crying for it when she doesn't get her way, but I am not messing with her sleep JUST yet. Maybe in a month... That 5 minute rule sounds great though - we may have to employ that one.
