When my little guy turned one I was very adamant that we were going to get rid of all the bottles and binkies in the house. We had been working on getting him switched over to sippy cups so that didn’t seem to be much of a problem. But then there was the binky. I personally loved it but my husband wanted to make sure he wasn’t too attached to it and still having one when he was 5. So we had a plan in set to limit it to just nap and bed time and then work down from there. But 5 days before he turned one he broke his arm. How could I take his binky away from him now? Then we went in for his one year check up and get shots. That wasn’t fun and it lead to a cold with an ear infection. His first ever so when we put him on his medicine we found out that he was allergic to penicillin. Now he was covered head to toe in hives and he had the cutest, little cast on his left arm. We had a VERY hard 6 weeks needless to say. So we never did get rid of that binky and I actually kind of forgot about it. Well by 18 month’s we finally got it down to just nap and bedtime. That was really nice. But how did we get rid of it permanently? I did a lot of research and asked all my friends and here were a bunch of tips that I got.
