But I guess it is better to begin early as I think the elder she grows, the more difficult the process will be. So I decided to start it with Sarah on last Tuesday.
My trick? I told her the “Zui Zui” is spoiled by “ant-ant”.
And here is some progress in the first two day:
Day 1 – We showed Sarah her “spoilt” pacifier. She was shocked, but luckily she buys our story and sleep well during her nap and bed time without the “Zui Zui”.
Day 2 – She started to show some “symptom” of the addiction. I had a very tough night as she was unable to fall asleep after woke up for milk in the midnight. She stayed awake for two hours and only went back to sleep at about 5am.
But thank God, since then she has no problem at all during her sleeping time.
We thought that Sarah will rant and rave for her pacifier during the transition, we have prepared our self for the worst case scenario; but she makes us so happy that she did not shed one tear about it.
Not only she showed no frustration but she’s also done some funny acts when she is unable to fall sleep (to comfort herself, I guess), for example sing songs, playing with her fingers, clap hands and etc.
It has been a week now and Sarah is doing fine without her pacifier; she has makes us proud, really. This is totally unexpected.
