E is 2 1/2, she will be 3 on April 4 and she still uses a pacifier to go to bed and take naps (she also has a pink elephant (squirt) I bought her when I found out she was a girl and a blankie that she can't sleep without).
But lately, when E gets upset/throws a tantrum she screams for her baba, I of course, say no. She then asks for a nap (so she can get it). Its good logic and I love that my toddler figured out that is the way to get her baba but, I AM NOT COOL WITH THAT.
Basically... It was hard enough to break her of the baba all the time to just naps/bedtime.
My question is: HOW DO I BREAK HER OF THE BABA ALL THE TIME? How did you do it?
ANY & ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOMED, PLEASE! Feel free to email me if you would like.
I don't know why the baba is so hard she gave up her bottle with no problems at 6 months old. It was like she didn't even miss it. After her well-baby check-up her ped told me to start the sippie-cup so the afternoon I ditched the bottle and E did well. I don't want to be battling the baba when she is 3...4... and so on. I want to tackle this, head-on, NOW.
THANKS in advance!
