The battle result

It's been almost 2 weeks now since I started weaning Cavan off his pacifier.

Gosh this boy is stubborn, persistent, strong willed, bad temper, etc... So hard to get him weaned off his pacifier!!

Anyhow, the result is that he no longer has the urge to have his pacifier during the day. Only moments when he's really very sleepy, we can see his has a strong urge. As our journey on this battle has not been easy for him and us (as in both parties DID NOT get sufficient sleep), we allowed him to have his pacifier for a short period of time before he falls asleep. We won't want to have a sleep deprieved child developing this kind of way do we?

It seems to work quite well as he will only suck it for a very short period of time before he knocks off into dreamland. On some occasions when you ask it back from him, he will give it to you, turn around, hug his bolster and zzzz... away!! Win-Win situation for both parties, do you agree? trick up my sleeve to wean him off completely during bed time is to put something bitter on his pacifier!!

Nowadays, we always tell him that he's a big boy now and if he continues to suck his pacifier, he mouth will be ugly and very shame-shame. He understands as he will do the shame-shame sign and pout his mouth for you to see. I'll end this post by showcasing the ever sexy pout pose by non other than Mr Chin junior..... hehehe.....

want a kiss anybody??
