The Heartless Dentist

Backstory: We have decided it is time to take away our daughters’ pacifiers, largely due to the encouragement of their pediatric dentist.  Their grandmother is none too pleased.

Oh, sure, blame the dentist.

Like Sydney’s not going to need braces anyway.

Give me a break – have you met her parents?  Both orthodontic dream patients.

Does this dentist even have any children?

      I heard a cute way to get rid of the paci is to have your child watch as you tie it in a tree in the backyard for the “baby fairy” to come and take it to actual babies who need it. In the morning the child goes out to check the tree and sees a present hanging in place of the paci. Then you actually have to get rid of all the pacis in the house because at some point YOU will want it.

      Very funny, my Mom didn’t want my daughter to give up her souther either, my Dr. assured me she would not go to school with it, she may hang it on her bedroom door, but would not bring it to school. He was right and she is a star student at the age of 15.

      If you call it a comforter instead of a pacifier or, as they do here, a dummy, then you recognise that it helps the child calm it’s fears and sooth itself which is a very important skill to take into adulthood. Your mother & grandmother are right.
