Infant Pacifier Weaning-- Please help!
I am a new mom and have read all of the messages surrounding weaning a child 2 years and older from the pacifier. I currently have an 8 month old who primarily uses the pacifier when falling asleep. Over the past 6 weeks, we have found ourselves in a situation where we are getting up 5 to 6 times a night to put the pacifier back in her mouth when it falls out in the middle of the night because she is waking up and can not settle herself back down. We try not to put her in our bed but we certainly have caved at 4am when we have not had any sleep and just need to get some rest.
Is she too young to remove the pacifier? Can we do this abruptly? I would appreciate any guidance on this and how to accomplish a full night sleep.
