Ok, I'm a little embarrassed to admit after Rigby just had his second birthday last week that he still uses a soother. I know. (I told you about him being a really sucky baby right?) I think I justify it with the fact that we do a lot of travelling and long hours in the van and sleeping at strange houses are much smoother experiences when there's a soother involved. I suppose yes, in some ways I'm the one that is still attached to it. Porter also had a 'soo-soo' but there was no "weaning" or "training" with that child. When it came to potty training, soother weaning and moving into a big-boy bed I just simply facilitated and stood by and watched as he did those things all on his own. Although it was awesome at the time it's left me quite ill prepared for Rigby. I guess I was hoping that the longer we left it Rigby would just give up his soo-soo on his own like Porter did. Nope. Anyway, reasons he still uses one aside, he does and we've decided that it's time to put an end to it. I have read many ideas online but I'm looking for tried and trusted methods from experienced moms. What has worked with your children, and with children that are really attached... like I'm worried this is going to get ugly. Well, I know it's going to get ugly but it's far past due.
