    Glad to hear it's calming down for LO. It's fascinating that she cries less now (because you can understand her better so she's less frustrated).
    I regularly get questions from family, friends, even concerned coworkers!--on why we don't use a soother, and it was because we used LAM... after reading this I'm glad we never used one.

    Ouch! Is it thrush or Raynaud's phenomenon?

    My baby girl has gone 2 complete weeks without her paci. She hasn't even asked for it in about 6 days. I can't believe that it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it'd be. She's a tough cookie and really fared well after having her precious paci taken away.

    We are so thankful that we went through with this. She is talking like crazy. We are really so excited at her increase of speech
    All over the world there exists in every society a small group of women who feel themselves strongly attracted to giving care to other women during pregnancy and childbirth. Failure to make use of this group of highly motivated people is regrettable and a sin against the principle of subsidiary. ~ Dr. Kloosterman, Chief of OB/GYN, Univ. of Amsterdam, Holland

    Way to go Joey!! We have also been pleasantly surprised at how easy it was for DD to give up her nighttime paci to the "bubbas fairy." She only cried for it for about a half hour for 2 nights after the initial night and that was it. Although just last night I asked DH if she's been asking for it at bedtime, and he said, "No, but she's been trying to suck her thumb." So I snuck into her bedroom with a flashlight to see if she was sucking her thumb in her sleep, and she wasn't. BUT she would suck her paci all night long! So I guess if she wants to suck her thumb to fall asleep and then it falls out, I'm ok with that.
