Somehow, after 2 years, we have maybe finally gotten rid of the pacifier. Good thing too, because we only have 1 more of the kind that he likes and they don't make them anymore. 3 days ago I put him to bed without it and he didn't ask for it. Then he took a nap the next day and didn't ask for it and so on and so forth. I have heard it takes 2 weeks to kick a habit.
Maybe just maybe we have nipped it in the bud. Fingers crossed.
Also, he has been sleeping through the night in his bed for the past 2 weeks. We told him he was gonna have to stay in his bed until the sun woke up from now on. It took a couple of nights to get adjusted but now he pretty much makes it all night until about 7am in his bed. Then he wanders into our bed and either goes back to sleep for a bit or asks to watch Dora. I miss him being next to me all night but finally after 2 years, we have our bed back. Amen.
