Once started, how do you wean your child from a pacifier? Some will give it up due to peer pressure, while others can be encouraged to take small steps on their own to give it up, perhaps doing so in stages. Like thumb sucking, it might take a really concentrated effort to change the habit. Verdick's book makes light of the subject by showing how grown up a child has become. The suggestion is that it is indeed time to give up the pacifier. Kids are told that they can do it. After all, the big kids have succeeded. The pacifier goes into the trash, and even though it will be missed there are other ways to get comfort, such as hugging a pillow, a soft toy or a family member. Often, distraction can help. Before long, the pacifier should be history. This is a book for sharing with a pacifier-dependent child. It will help your child think about and take steps to move away from a pacifier.
