Three nights ago, I decided that enough was enough and now was the time that Miss A would give up her dummy for good. She was chewing holes in them and quite frankly she is getting too old for them.
I decided that the best way to do this was to tell her to leave them in the bin for Santa to collect to give to a newborn baby and on Christmas day she will get extra presents for being a big brave girl. She also received a Tangle Teaser Magic Flower pot in exchange for doing this too. She done it willingly and was happy doing this!
She woke up several times the first night but I was in agony with gallstone pain so I was up anyway. The night after was TERRIBLE! She took hours to go to sleep and kept waking up screaming. It turns out she was starting to get a cold so probably felt quite ill.
Last night was AMAZING! Even with a cold, she went to sleep without crying and she only woke up at 2:30am and that was after a bad dream. She woke at 6:30am but she was happy to keep in bed until 7, I was exhausted from the day before so couldn’t manage to get out of bed just yet..not until the alarm went off!
I am so proud of her, she hardly ever mentions the D word!
Wonder what tonight will bring?!
