We have been over 24 hrs now and not needed it for even a second. I'm worried about in public though. What happens when hes grumpy at a restaurant? What about the gym daycare where he cries anyways? He will not take a human to soothe him. The boob or paci is all that will do. I suppose we could nurse for a few minutes to distract him and move on but what about when I'm not there with him. He will just learn to soothe other ways I suppose.
I already see the difference. He is so LOUD. He squeals loudly when he does things he is proud of. He has put himself to sleep 4x now on his own. I'm so proud of him.
I will miss his cute smile behind his rubberwood pacifier but I love watching my baby grow and watching his sweet smile and that is exactly why we are quitting his addiction. I want him to have a gorgeous smile to be a self soother and be confident. His language is already in abundance but I want him to say so much more.
