Welcome to the Quilting Board!
She who dies with the most fabric didn't sew fast enough!
Our family called the pacifier "the plug"
Kaye Jacobson Salverda
Mine never liked pacifiers. They would hold the nipple and chew on the handle! One less thing to break em from!
If a woman's work is never done....why start?
My youngest DD was a nursing baby until age 2 but I always gave her water in a bottle. She was coming on 3 years of age and still using the water bottle, did not want a sippy cup and raised a ruckus when she didn't have it. We wanted her to stop using the bottle and when her big girl 3rd birthday came up, we made a big deal about how 3 year old big girls use glasses and how big 3 year old girls don't use bottles, etc., etc. We kept asking her to try a pretty glass that we got for her and sometimes she would and sometimes not. The morning of her birthday the bottle was gone and in its place was her pretty glass because big girls don't use bottles. She rarely asked about it and it went over real well. I guess it was all that prebirthday advertising.
M y DIL took him to a park with a bridge over a stream and he threw it into the water himself. That ended his attachment to his paci.
None of my three sons would have anything to do with a pacifier. (Thank goodness) When my aunt tried to put one in their mouths they would spit it across the room! But the oldest did suck his thumb till he was about 2 and knew as soon as the thumb went in the eyes closed! You should have seen him fighting sleep by trying to keep his thumb out of his mouth! LOL
4 kids, never had one.......3 grandkids, never used any.......all turned out just fine........and slept like babies.........
Hmmm...my mom broke my little brother of the bottle by dipping the nipple in vinegar and telling him bugs got on it. Kinda harsh huh? But it worked....of course he stomped bugs like a fiend after that .
I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!
