My little guy is 5 1/2 months old and I want to wean him off of the pacifier while sleeping. He was STTN since about 3 months while swaddled, we started putting him to bed unswaddled just this week. The transition actually went pretty smoothly, he adjusted in just a few days and seems to be happy that I finally stopped stopped confining him at night
The only issue is, he tends to wake up a couple of times within the first few hours just wanting his nuk back and then goes right back to sleep usually. It's not a huge deal, but I figure if he's basically sleeping all night, I should be able to sleep all night, too, right?
Also, him being so young seems like it will be much easier to wean him off of it now than when he's older and so much more attached. Right now, if I start to rock him to sleep without it, he wiggles and cries until I give it to him, then he snuggles right in and is asleep usually within minutes. How have others done this? I would love some advice and tips as to the best ways that worked for you or others you know. Thanks!!
