I have to admit that I haven't managed to get DD off the bottle and the paci yet. She still gets a bottle at night and in the morning. She is crying and screaming for it and will not go to sleep. The morning bottle is not an every day thing so I guess I can say it's getting better???
The paci is the same story. She needs it to sleep and to nap. It's more to go down then it's out for the rest of the night/nap. And she will ask for it during the day if she sees it, so I try and keep it out of sight. I do give it to her during the day at certain circumstances such as pain due to teething. That is sometimes the only thing that will calm her down.
But I just feel like I"m not "aggressive" enough about this and need to just bite the bullet and do it. I'm just so hesitant and am torn between letting her slowly ween herself and realizing that it may not happen and I simply need to take it away and weather the storm with her.
What has your experience been and what have you done? Any input is much appreciated :)
