Nineteen years ago, my time on Earth began on this very day. So while growing up, I, and I believe many babies out there were given a pacifier keep us tame.
Overtime, like drugs, it will become an addiction for the babies. Parents often many find ways to help their child quit their cravings for the pacifier but to no avail. Well, I can’t assure you if my method works, but it’s worth a try. At least it worked on every of my younger cousins with this addiction. It isn’t my method anyway. It was my Aunt’s idea. So I’m just here to share the method that my family has adopted to make the little ones stop having the pacifier in their mouth.
In just five simple steps, you may be able to acquire success. Success rate would also be increase if your child is afraid of insects, specifically worm. You’ll need two items before you start, which I believe every household should have. Its just a pair of scissors and a fraction of a garlic. With that said, read the procedures below with illustrations to your aid.
By squeezing the garlic into the pacifier, it would make the pacifier to appear as if some worm has settled into your child’s favourite item. So what you have to do after this is to show the results to your child. Create a story and let your best freaking-out emotion that would land you in Oscars surface upon your face.
Keep making sounds like “EEK, EEEEEE, and YUCK!” to reassure your child that his or her favourite item has been infected with disgusting creature. If you have more than one child at about the same age with the same addiction, it would be like killing two birds with one stone if one of their response to it is according to what we expect here, as he/she would be likely to influence the other.
What should you do if they are sickened by the looks of their pacifier is that you should get them to dump their pacifier into the bin. Encourage them. By getting them to dump it themselves, you can use this against them in the future should they request for their pacifier and throwing a tantrum if it does not appear. Should they throw a tantrum, remind them that they were the one who toss it away because it was infected. Overtime, they’ll forget about it.
I don’t know if this would work for your child but it’s still worth a try right? If you have tried it and succeed, congratulations! Fellow peers of mine, not to worry; this information might be useful for you in the future or useful for your stubborn little ones from your family should they possess this addiction (:
