pacifier anyone?


Easton has picked up a new self-soothing habit. I was a MAJOR thumb sucker for years and fortunately it has not transferred to my children. Abi would NOT be pacified by anything artificial. Elyssa was a full-on gyp baby. 'Gyp' is what my parents call a pacifier/binki/nuk cuz the baby is getting "gypped out of the real thing." Ammon STILL has his 'gyp and raggies' (he has a thin flannel burp rag that he rubs his nose, eyes and ears with when he's tired) at night and most of the time during the day - much to his parent's chagrin! They are so adorable and have their very own personalities and ways of doing things!

Thanks for your advice! She does have a "gyp" and a blankie . . . and she does go to sleep fine . . . it's just that lately she wakes up very upset . . . I think maybe she's going through a growth spurt . . . maybe I should start solids! Today I am pretty sleepy because of the lack of sleep!
