Your child and their "paci"
Wee Spot is year old now, and still on a "binky".
He doesn't freak if he doesn't have one, though seems to sleep better with one. He'll also pick one up in plug it in if he finds it during the day. Which means he usually has one during the day. He's an explorer of the first order and can find one he lost a month ago, whether it have been hidden in the decorative milk jugs or under the couch.
I do have concerns that it's keeping him from saying as much as he might without one. He's certainly more vocal with out it, but will also talk a bit around it.
When did you pull the pacifier from your child? Why? If they didn't appreciate it, what did you do to make things easier? Am I doing something not cool by still letting him have it when he wants it?
What are the pro's and con's of the spawn having one/not having one?
