I'm having multiple problems with my 3 and a half year old daughter,but the biggest one is getting her to stop using a pacifier. I've given up on bottle use and potty training right now to focus on getting her to stop wanting her pacifier all the time. I tried the pacifier fairy story and it was working good until bedtime. I had her put the pacifier under her pillow. When I went to get the pacifier out from under her pillow. She had it in her mouth and her finger in the ring of the pacifier. There was no way I could get it out of her mouth without waking her up. I asked her doctor about it and she said to just take the pacifier away. That is great advice for her. She doesn't have to listen to my daughter cry and scream because she can't have her pacifier. I would just let her do it if I didn't have a 6 month old who doesn't sleep very well. The slightest sound and he wakes up. When he wakes up. He cries.
