Pacifier addiction is no laughing matter. It affects millions of babies and their families every year. You are not alone. There is literature that can help you and your baby. Start a playdate support group or reach out to another parent that’s trying to get a baby or toddler off the “paci”. So you’re aware street names for Pacifier are “binky”, “nukky”. “boppy” and “sucker”. Withdrawal symptoms include excessive crying, agitated behavior (both babies and parents), begging, and in some cases, resorting to sucking ones own fingers. If you have helpful information about getting a baby off the “paci”, please, share in the comments section below. Thank you.

Tell the little one that there are some baby monkeys at the zoo who need the “mimis” more than they do. Take them to the zoo and give them to the zoo keeper. It might take the sting off if they know they are helping baby monkeys!

Ohhh, the paci addiction. I blogged about this topic, too, and got some great suggestions in the comments (there are some seriously innovative interventionist parents out there). Good luck!: http://www.parenting.com/blogs/parenting-post/taylor-newman/gotta-get-paci-fix-plus-video
