So, a while back when I had the kids at the dentist, we talked about getting rid of the soother by Cooper's 2nd b-day. So at the beginning of April, I started, I poked a hole in it. The dental hygenist said that's what she tried, her kid decided it was "broken" and gave it up. Cooper, not so much. After the hole, I started cutting bits off of it, every few days. He has been clinging to less than 1/4" of soother for weeks. Finally last night we asked him if he wanted to throw it away, and he went to the garbage and put it in!
I let him keep the clippy string thing, I could care less if he sleeps with that until he's in high school LOL, but the soother is history!! Hooray!
