I'm hoping someone here will be able to help, or at least commiserate. Our (just turned) 2 year old used pacifiers for sleep for almost her whole life, 3 weeks ago I poked holes in them, explained how binkies break when you become a big girl, gave some special treats, and then took them away all together a day later. With binkies she slept well and went to bed extremely easily, but the last three weeks have been horrible. Unless she is absolutely exhausted she'll fight sleep for over an hour, crying, yelling, asking for water and a song, etc.
Has anyone out there had experience with this? Everyone I know says their kid was over it in a few days.
I'm also wondering if it was just bad timing as our usually grey weather turned to sunshine and heat just as we took the binkies away, does anyone else notice that summer weather wrecks the sleep routine?
Any help is much appreciated - even if it is just sharing what falling asleep looks like for your toddler - thank you!
