After 5 days I caved in
So today marked 5 days with NO pacifier and lets just say it took a major toll on Carter:( none of us got sleep all week, he cant sleep ad wont sleep and when he does its for a few minutes and he wakes up screamig and tossing turning, it became to where his tantrums were 10x worse and he would throw himself on the floor and throw his head into the ground, he would punch and kick you if you tried calming him down, and then he started to suck on his fingers really bad and was just really emotional. Today We came home, he found his paci, within two minutes he was passed out. I'm not taking it either until he wakes up. The boy needs sleep! And so do we! Its been a rough past few days and I just couldnt take seeing him like that. And now people want to call me names and say I'm not strong enough and what not! But my boy needed sleep miserably! I feel like I failed but I didnt know what else to do, nothing else ever worked to calm him down and to go to sleep.
In the mornings, she'll have it in her mouth when she wakes up. As soon as I sit her down for breakfast, she takes it out to eat and I take it away. She forgets about it. I think we're getting to the point where we can probably eliminate it completely.
