First Night Sans Pacifier

SUCCESS!!!! Complete SUCCESS!!!

Previously, the pacifier has stayed in bed. Sariah got it for naps and bed.

Well...it usually made its appearance at 6:30, for the last 30 minutes before she went to bed. This is because she was SO tired, and needed that comfort to last her until bedtime.

Last night, 6:30 rolled around...and no pacifier.

We did a quick FHE (because Sariah has a 10-second attention span), a scripture, and a prayer.

At 6:45, she melted down. We put her to bed.

Sans pacifier.

She cried, but only for about 20 minutes (instead of 45 at naptime).

I was expecting her to wake up several times looking for it.

She woke up once, at 10:40. She cried for about 20 minutes, but eventually gave up and succumbed to sleep.

She woke up at 7:05 her normal self! She happily played in her crib for 30 minutes! Once she started calling for me, I got up and got her.

Maybe naptime will go a little smoother today. One can hope, right??
