Yesterday Kallie said goodbye to her her soother!
(it’s only day 2 so I hope it’s a permanent goodbye! lol)
After reading all of the comments and emails that you, my readers, sent me (thanks for them.. I love comments!) I came up with a plan.

First of all I went through Kallie’s room and made sure I found any hidden soothers but left her just one.
Then I found a big brown envelope and told Kallie go get the soother in her room.
We sat down on the floor and I told her that another baby needed her soother and that we were going to send it to him.
(ok, so I don’t know any babies needing a soother but it worked anyways)
I opened the envelope, she put the soother in, and then we sealed it up.
That was it.
When I put her down for her nap yesterday I was surprised at how quiet she stayed and how quickly she fell asleep. Well, when I checked in on her she had a soother in her mouth! Apparently I didn’t do the greatest job rounding them all up!
So, when bedtime rolled around I didn’t mention the soother and just put her blankets in her arms (she has to sleep with 2 baby blankets in her arms), prayed with her, kissed her, and left the room.
She cried for 20 minutes and then it was quiet.
For today’s nap I did the same thing as last night and within 15 minutes she was quiet!
I really hope this is the end of soothers for her!
So far it’s looking promising! 🙂
