Day one down...

So I decided it's time to get Kassidy off her binkies before her 2 year birthday. It wasn't really what I wanted to do, but the dentist said that after 2 years old their teeth start to pull forward permanently, so, here we are! Day one was yesterday and I decided to try the snip trick where you cut the tip of the binky to make it lose the suction. Kassidy tried to suck her binky after it was snipped and started bawling, "Binky brokie!" She was pretty upset, but the worst came at night when she bawled for a solid hour. Kevin and I took turns trying to soothe her, which didn't work and she finally just bawled herself to sleep. Tough night, but I'm sure tonight will be worse. I'm not sure how long this is supposed take, but we're hanging in there because I didn't save any back up binkies. Any advice mommies?

Yikes. Not fun. Good luck with that. There are times I wish Grace would take a binky, but I am glad to miss out on taking it away since she wouldn't take one in the first place. Hang in there. I doubt it will last too long though I am sure the days will seem like years. You have my sympathies. Seriously Good luck!

oh, sad! Let us know how it all turns out or if you figure out any tricks. That will be us with Cloe in a few months and I don't like to think about it! Hannah never took one so keep us updated :)

I don't really have any advice since we haven't taken Addy's binky away yet. So instead, I'll just give words of encouragement (that's almost as good as advice right:) Good Luck, be strong, & hang in there!!! If you find anything that helped it be easier or that worked real well for you, you'll have to share. Because we'll be doing the same thing sometime soon:)

Ugh, please let me know if this works for you!
We haven't attempted to take Caleb's binky away yet, and probably won't until after the new baby is born. But I'm already dreading trying to get him to go to sleep without it.
Keep us updated! And GOOD LUCK!
