DS was sleeping really well (from 7-4, then up to eat, then back down until 7) until he got that stomach bug. He would often go down without a pacifier. But since then, he's been waking up a lot. Not to eat, but just needing us to soothe him a little and put the pacifier back in his mouth - and he pretty much won't fall asleep without it, either. I was up 10 times last night (somehow DH seems to sleep through it all).
I'm thinking about trying to wean him off of it in the hopes that he will sleep better, going on the theory that he will fall back asleep better if he wakes up in the same way he went to sleep (no pacifier). Has anyone done this? From what I googled, it seems like just going cold turkey is the way to go. How bad is it going to be?
Would it be bad to let him keep using it at nap time but not for bed? Since he's starting daycare next week, I kind of want to let him keep that little bit of comfort.
