Metaphors are ways of thinking and speaking about God which are based on images. The Bible is full of animal characteristics to describe God. Jesus also describes others by using metaphors. In the Bible God is seen as a Shepherd, Consequential Relations. This book is following a battle of Rhiannon Reyes.

We have a one year-old who also loves the binky, and the three year- old never takes it from her, she seems to understand that binkys are for babies, not big three year-olds. As an aside, when we were trying to get her to give up her bedtime bottle, we told her that when we went on vacation to visit grandma, there wouldn't be any bottles at bedtime. After a two-week vacation, she had forgotten all about the bedtime bottles, so using a transition can also be effective.
My nephews were big binky lovers, and they both had little ceremonies to get rid of the binkys, whatever works. Mom of binky lovers I had a similar problem with my son and his ''bottle''. This sounds too simple, but it worked! I told him that he was a big boy now and big boys drink out of cups, ''Let's throw away these bottles''. We pulled out the trash can and threw them all in, said ''Bye-bye'' and he started drinking out of cups! No kidding! Elaine I can tell you what worked great for us: When our daughter was approaching 3 yrs old, we started talking about the ''Pacifier Fairy'' --similar to the Tooth Fairy, the ''Paci Fairy'' comes when little girls or boys are 3, collects all of her bottles,pacies, nipples etc, that have been collected the night before and left by the child's bed.
In exchange, the PF leaves a big stuffy. We, and she, never looked back. No ceremonies Are you ready for her to give up her naps? That's what our 3. And even though we ended up giving her pacifier back to her a month later, she never went back to napping, which I thought she still needed. She also started other troubling behaviors like sucking on her shirt, and sometimes sucking her thumb, and had difficulty getting to sleep for a while. Has a dentist said that it is harming her teeth? Even if so, a pacifier is probably better than sucking her thumb, which she may take up as compensation.
Anyway, if you are determined that she needs to give it up, I do recommend the Lolly Fairy or Binky Fairy or whatever you call it. She is like the Tooth Fairy, and she comes when the child is no longer a baby but is a ''Big Girl'' or Boy and no longer needs the pacifier. In its place she leaves Big Girl things toys, gum, etc. Our daughter got very excited about the Lolly Fairy and swore she was ready, even though it turned out she wasn't.
I would also start by strictly adhering to the ''only for sleeping'' rule, i.
It's a beautifully illustrated, engaging, and really fun book about a little monster who finally decides to give up his pacifier but he plants one in the ground so a noo noo tree will grow. My son's almost seven and he STILL likes to re-read the book and still giggles while doing so even though his pacifier is very ancient history now. Sara 3. When he visited the dentist just after his 3rd birthday, the dentist said he really had to stop using it, as it is affecting his teeth and jaw.
We still haven't managed to help him to do that, and I'm looking for ideas or suggestions. I read in other postings that people picked a targeted date, and talked it up as the date was nearing, and then when it arrived, the children pretty willingly said goodbye to their pacifiers. I've tried that, but when our date arrived, our son became pretty distraught, and suggested a new date a year away!
We even had a new baby all picked out to ''give'' the pacifiers to, but he just couldn't do it! I don't know if I just have to be mean and take it away, and we'll all suffer for a while, or if he really will be ready at some point, and I should just wait for that time. He doesn't have a blanky or favorite stuffed animal for comfort I've tried to encourage both and it hasn't worked so his ''pacie'' is his one comfort item.
It makes the transition to sleep easier for the him and for us. I've also heard of kids being forced to give up pacifiers who then take up thumbsucking which is supposedly worse for teeth. Any insights or suggestions from anyone out there?
I've had 2 children passionately attached to their ''pacies'' and the only thing that has worked for us is going cold turkey. We too went to the dentist for my 3. He said we needed to get rid of it, so from the moment we left the office, she never got one again. I told her that if she slept the first night without the pacifier, I would take her to the Hello Kitty store in SF and she could pick anything she wanted.
It was very difficult for her, lots of screaming and crying, but she did it. We went to the store and let her pick out 2 gifts.
That night when she started crying for her pacifier, I said ''we'd have to bring back your beautiful Hello Kitty Bride. The dentist office also sent a package of toys when I called to tell them that she had given up her pacifier. This was pretty great for her. Anyway, she still, many months later, does not sleep as well as she did with her pacifier One thing that has helped is letting her listen to a CD when falling asleep. This is a new routine and has worked pretty well. It's really hard. I don't know about any other children, but this little girl was not giving up her pacifier voluntarily - not for a long time.
Jill We too have tried to limit the use of the pacifier in our 3. And now when she wants it and we don't give it to her, she sticks her finger right in! So I am not sure what good we are doing! We tried to limit his use to bedtime and the car and had told him that when he turned four he wouldn't be able to have it anymore. About 6 weeks before his 4th birthday he fell and cut his face and had to have stitches right next to his mouth.
The doctor said the pacifier would irritate the wound, so no more pacifier. THe doctor also said we'd have one bad weekend and he'd forget about it.
Don’t Ban the Pacifier: Why Moms Should Limit Judgment
It was actually like 2 bad weeks, but we lived through it. What really helped was reminding him that the doctor said NO pacifier -- my son seemed to respect the opinion of a 3rd party authority figure, and mom and dad weren't the 'bad guys', we were just following the rules. So you might try telling your son that the dentist said no pacifier. Also, my son did some finger sucking when he was stressed or tired, but that stopped after a few months. It's been about 10 or 11 months since he gave up the pacifier and says he doesn't remember when he used one.
Weaning 3. She's received a reprieve from the dentist for the last 2 visits, but now it's time. We're down to only one very old, funky pacifier that lives in the binky cup during the day, and she only has it at night or when she's lying down or napping, or going for a long car trip or stroller ride. We've told her that when it gets lost or destroyed we aren't buying any more. I'm concerned about the condition of this one--I also think it may last awhile longer if we don't do anything. I can't bring myself to lose it myself. I'd like to know how other parents of highly oral children have dealt with this--we're not into being mean to her as the binky really is her main comfort, along with her blanket which definitely plays second-fiddle , but we're willing to be creative and want to move this process along.
Any suggestions? Roxane My sister had the same problem with her son who used a pacifier and a burp cloth for comfort until he was 4. She was going through a divorce and she did not feel good about taking it away from him too early.
Pacifier Weaning: Your One Stop Know It All Guide • gleasospenlulsrog.tk
Anyhow, she was successful at getting him to voluntarily give up the pacifier. She reminded him of this weekly and then daily during the week before his birthday. When he woke up on his birthday, she asked him if he was ready and he, himself dropped the pacifier and burp cloth into the trash. He never said another word about either after that day.
Obviously, this method may not be ideal for every child, but I thought you might like to hear what worked for her. Chris I think weaning from the pacifier is like weaning from the breast or the bottle. It is best to do it gradually. What we did with my with my daughter was first limit her pacifier use to only in the house. Then it was only at naps and bedtime. My husband also made up a bedtime story about a little girl who wouldn't take her pacifier out of her mouth and the repercussions.
In the story the little girl used to eat and talk with it until one day she ate a peanut butter sandwich and pacifier was suck! Of course, then no one could understand what she was saying. No one could give her a proper kiss goodnight.
