Best Friend

Lia has been having a rough time going to sleep, and falling back to sleep, since she gave up her pacifiers a few weeks ago. I knew that she was struggling a little without her pacifiers, but I did not realize how much she was still grieving for them until today. After her short nap, we were in the kitchen getting her some milk and she looked at me and said, "Mommy, my passy is my best friend". I was stunned. She was so sad and it was obvious that she really missed her passy. I had no idea what to say. I think I said something about "more time". Like she is supposed to understand what that means. Hopefully, she will soon forget about them.

So sad. Maybe you need to get her something else for bedtime that she can hold onto? You could tell her that she is too old for pacifiers but that she can pick out something else that could become her best friend???? Love you. Mom
