    Emergency! Broken pacifier

    Stacey, our daughter in Oklahoma called today.

    Bella (age 2) was crying uncontrollably because her beloved paci broke. Her "Papa" (Dad's Pop) went to the store and got her 2 new ones. She settled down and talked to me on the phone. What a little chatterbox! She went on about her paci, her two new teeth and the pool the got the other day.

    Big sister Raiden was busy swimming and having a blast.

    I spent hours looking for the "right" paci for my daughter when she was 2. She had to have the "Nuck" brand which was rare 32 years ago. I didn't know which of us was going to be nuts by the time I found one. I bought five.

    Happy to report Bella is doing fine now.



    My oldest daughter had a quilt she carried everywhere. Not a small crib one, but a twin size one. ....lol

    My new grand daughter likes a pacifier.
    I remember my 3rd daughter. She had to have 3 of them, one for each hand and one for her mouth. If she lost any one of them in the middle of the night she would get rather upset. I have a picture of her somewhere with 2 of them in her mouth and one in each hand.


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    Please tell me how you break your kids from the pacifier. My kids never had one. My grandson, almost 3, has a fit if they try to get him to go to bed without one. His teeth are being affected, and I can't give advice on how to break this habit. Any tips?

    My kids never took a pacifier, either. However, I've heard of people cutting a small hole in the tip of the paci, which makes it less pleasant to suck.

    One of my sons sucked his thumb until he was four or five. He's 48 now - has beautiful teeth - and - as far as I know - hasn't sucked his thumb since he was in kindergarden (unless he hit it with a hammer)
