We went home after that & did our usual nightly routine without the paci, but then I did give it to them when it was time for bed.
The following morning, I left the pacis in their cribs. We went about our day: we had a play date, went to the mall & played around at home and they didn't seem to miss the paci at all!
On Saturday morning, before breakfast, I did notice Nolan sucking his cheeks in like he was sucking on a paci, but he didn't whine for it. I just made sure to play with them a little extra when they seemed to be getting tired or cranky.
We are now on Day 6 and they are only using the pacifier at bed time and during their naps. I have noticed extra whining that I wasn't hearing before, but in all honesty, I would rather hear that than see them walking around with their pacifier in their mouth. I'm glad that we waited until they were 13 months to take them away beacuse I think that if we did it when they were younger, it would have been problematic. They really needed that pacifier in the evenings because they were just so tired & cranky and it was the main thing that soothed them (that plus being in mommy or daddy's arms!)
So long, pacifiers!
