Yes, yes, it is true. Sophie still has her Binki. We try to keep it limited to naps and night time only, but we also drag it out when we are headed somewhere that she could cause a ruckus. But, with baby #2 getting closer and closer I have been debating with myself for quite sometime: Do I take it away before or after the baby comes?
She often throws her binki's out of her crib throughout the night and ends up without them anyway so today I tried an experiment. I decided to not go in and save the binki's and return them to her during her nap time. It took her an hour and a half of talking, playing with her socks, and an occasional shout out to finally fall asleep. Then I also (as of 5 minutes ago) tried putting her to bed without her binki.
Have I started a monster? Will she want a binki when our other baby has his? Or, will three months without it be enough and she'll never look back? Am I doing the right thing to try to get her off now? Or should I wait until she's two?
