Binky Problems


So I have not really tried to get Payton to stop the binky before now. I have just not cared, but she turns 3 really soon (as in less then two weeks). We worked on it really hard this summer, but with the many vacations, she has been sucking on it more. This morning she would not get out of bed because I told her she had to leave it in bed. She decided she would rather sit in bed and hold it. What do I do? Help? I don't want her sucking on it forever.

The Pediatric Dentists that I used to work for suggested cutting the tip off of the binkie and then let them have it. Then the next day cute a little more off, until finally there isn't anything left. Eventually they don't want it anymore. It worked for Lindsay. Payton is a little older so it might not trick her as well as it tricked Lindsay, but it is worth a try. Good Luck!

Tara suggested the same thing that I was going to say. Good luck!

My mom got me to stop sucking my thumb by bribing me with a pair of red shoes. :)

Parley is only allowed to have her binky in bed as well. I think Payton will slowly wean herself away from the binky if you only allow her to have it in bed. it worked with tucker and it's (slowly) working with parley
