Lucas has been crying practically all day today. What do you want to do? Bounce? Walk? Play? Read? Sleep? ( NOPE.) Stand? Sing? Drive? Eat? What is it sweet boy??!
Of course the minute dad walks in the door and holds him he’s as happy as a clam. But dad has to work.
It’s almost 7pm. It’s almost 7. Just four more hours. Just 3 more hours…
I did not know what to do. I couldn’t get him happy no matter what I tried. So, I gave in. I grabbed that piece of plastic out of the drawer and gave it to him. If want to read how I feel about pacifiers- look here.
He was in pacifier heaven. He loved it. It calmed him down immediately and he was asleep within two minutes. SCORE! He looked absolutely ridiculous with it in his mouth. Just plain silly.
So I put him down in his crib to nap.
Two minutes later he woke up. His pacifier fell out. I walk in and put the paci back in his mouth, he falls asleep.
Pacifier falls out. Put back in mouth. Fall asleep.
This is not going to work. Goodbye pacifier, it was nice to meet you, but you’re not welcome here anymore.
I know pacifiers are recommended for reducing SIDS. I know babies like to suck. BUT I HATE THEM.
He is sitting in his bouncy chair right now. Happy and working on finding his thumb. 🙂
I’ll keep you updated. There’s no telling what’ll happen tomorrow!
